     "I don't see why not!" Garno protested.  "People eat pigs' feet, why not cats'
feet?  Why not eat Toes?  With cheese, we could call them Chee-Toes."
     "Because the idea is disgusting," his teammate Maran answered.  "Even if you're
using pressed meat just SHAPED to look like Toes, it's perilously close to
cannibalism--"
     "No, it isn't.  Toes wasn't human or anything like, he was a cat.  You could
tell.  I mean, he had a TAIL.  Not even elves have tails."
     "Cats!"  Harith nearly spat the word.  "It's all some kind of trick to distract
us from the alien footprints in the Lower Town.  Huh, there's probably even an alien
working in the Infirmary to start this whole business going!"  He stood up suddenly,
pushing away the plate of toe-shaped sausages, most of them uneaten.  "I bet if we
were to check the ground around the Infirmary, we would find some of those alien
tracks!"
     "Unless they used magic to conceal them," Kordal said.  "Evil aliens do that."

                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, DAL SHANG?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed 
to see MARAN TEN PALAN win a fight and gain 8 points, terribly.  And if variety is 
the spice of life, DAL SHANG may be getting bland, as SSSKAH stays top dog in the 
city.  I'm not in a very good mood today, but why am I telling you this?  You want to 
know what's new, don't you, DAL SHANG?   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for DAL SHANG's 
morgue.  More variety.  Titanium shields and bamboo daggers, guess what brave team is 
developing these kinds of weapons?   
     There's got to be a better place in DAL SHANG to get a drink than The Blazing 
Unicorn!  Any suggestions?  Just wait 'till next time I show up here, I won't be so 
nice!  So nyaaah!  Paste this one in your scrapbooks, you'll need the kindling come 
this winter-- Snide Clemens

Standbys.  I'm glad there's SOMEBODY here to fight, but cheese louise, they're almost
as tedious all those snacks! -- Harith ten Moru

Kolactan Kabob -- Delicious, but I guess I over-ate. -- Garno ten Koro

Okay, standbys are "tedious"--as gladiators.  Mim Yellowhair is a fun date, though.
Great sense of humor. -- Kordal t'Rohn

Silver Eyes -- Bad cat! -- Linnis tyl Sorn

This Oltimal the Lame person.  Are you sure he's the original standby?  I think he's
been replaced by some evil magical alien creature with strange feet. -- Maran ten
