                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail DAL SHANG!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed for 
your deeds.  And let's see, MARAN TEN PALAN fought SILVER EYES and gained 14 points 
and contributed to SAND DANCERS' 3-2-0.  SILVER EYES has lost to MARAN TEN PALAN, 
falling 6 points, while helping make CASTAWAYS a 0-1-0 turn.  The attempts to 
dethrone the Duelmaster have failed, and KOLACTAN KABOB remains DAL SHANG's top 
warrior for another turn.  Can someone confirm a rumor for me?  I hear the top team 
makes their losing fighters do dishes at The Blazing Unicorn until they win.  Maybe?  
     I tell you, a green quarterstaff lasts longer than a seasoned sapling.  A basher 
friend of mine assures me this is true.   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  We'd like to remind certain teams not to rob the graves of their 
enemies.  You know who you are; and it's considered rude.   
     Remember, blood on the purple robe does not change it from a purple robe.  Dare 
to fight bravely.  Well, I'm burning daylight here in DAL SHANG and I've a long road 
ahead of me.  Happy Trails.  Until you see my quill in DAL SHANG again, farewell-- 
Alarond the Scribe

Ah, snacks.  You eat some, and an hour later you're hungry again.  At least with
Shewish Buffet here, we have plenty. -- the Sand Dancers

Kolactan Kabob -- For the one who brought us Toes Kabob, much will be forgiven. --
Kordal t'Rohn
P.S.  Even making me look ineffective.

Kolactan Kabob -- What he means, is "wimpy." -- Linnis tyl Sorn

Linnis -- If I'd meant "wimpy," I would have SAID wimpy.  Don't exaggerate. -- Kordal

And the Chardinee goes down twice!  Fans cheer to see him fall! -- Garno and Harith

Sasha -- I think it's that dead-white make-up that leads people to call you a zombie.
Wash it off, go for something rosier, and you will see a change in their attitudes.

Silver Eyes -- Your lashing tail was a distraction. -- Maran ten Palan
