     "It's infamous!"  Ardane, spy reporter for Andorak, scowled and drew back his
arm to throw his goblet through the window at the crowd outside.  Then paused to
drain the contents before resuming the about-to-throw-it position.
     "Now, now, it isn't THAT bad."  Desiree of Darkholm, always the voice of sweet
reason at these meetings, laid a hand on his, smiled, and guided the goblet back to
the table.  "It's just a little mistake, you know."
     "Ha!"  Debby Tonte of Free Blades stabbed viciously into her drink with an
umbrella.  "That's easy for YOU to say.  The Delarquans aren't complaining."
     "Of course not."  Galen of Talahya looked faintly envious as she pulled a chunk
of pineapple out of her glass and began to nibble it.  "That's because the Delarquans
are THE Masters of Kung-Fu."
     "You think some managers are complaining," Olaf Modeen said, "you should hear
what the GLADIATORS are saying.  All these rumors about the Aimed Blows having
'special enhancements'..." he shook his head.  "I know it isn't true, you know it
isn't true, the top managers know it isn't true--"
     "Of course it isn't true!"  Ketchum, spy reporter for Crysalis, matched scowls
with Ardane and said, "If ANY one style was going to get a special enhancement, it
should be--"
     "Not now, Ketch," Olaf said.  "Nobody gets, nobody has gotten, nobody WILL get,
special enhancements.  That's always been the rule, and we all know how the Greywand
hates changes.  The real problem--"
     "Try telling that to some of the managers," Debby muttered, peering into her
glass for more fruit.  "They don't want to hear it.  Every time I turn around, some
manager is claiming that someone got a special change and, you know, HE didn't and
it's all unfair."
     "The REAL problem," Olaf said firmly, over-riding her voice, "is explaining to
all the second-rate Aimed Blows why they haven't received any of these 'special
enhancements' they keep hearing about."
     "There aren't any special enhancements," Ardane growled.  "None.  Just managers
who noticed that the Kung-Fu Master is a lot more dangerous than anyone expected, and
have put YEARS into the study of Kung-Fu and learned how to really USE it for their
own gladiators."
     "Saved a lot on weapons, too," Ketchum murmured.
     "But people keep complaining," Debby Tonte said.  She fished one last piece of
fruit out of her glass and stared at it dubiously.
     "There WERE no special enhancements," Olaf said.  "There ARE no special
enhancements.  There WILL BE no special enhancements.  It's all a matter of deep
study and skilled management."
     "Like anyone's going to believe that!"
     "They have no choice," Ketchum said.  "If no 'special enhancements' were given
out, then none can be taken back.  It is the way it is.  What's the point in
complaining because the sun rises in the east?"

                                      SPY REPORT

     Oh, hi.  Its just little 'ol Debby Tonte.  Thought I'd check out KYR'TERR to see 
what's new.  I don't wanna hurt anybody's feelings or anything, but DOGS OF WAR 
really goofed with their 0-0-0.  MVP award for BARRIE?  ENROUTE TO ST LOUIS' proud of 
it after beating HALDA IMPOLA and getting 16 points.  Talk about yer big time losers! 
HALDA IMPOLA got smashed by BARRIE, and lost 12 points!  And I was just getting used 
to the ex-Duelmaster's habit of...(!)  Oh well, welcome I OF THE KNEE DOLL.  Aren't 
HAZAARDS OF CLONING proud.  (Oh, my.) Is the Duelmaster really being a real snob to 
his teammates?  Don't ask me!   
     Look, you guys stick to fighting, all right?  THE ZOO was KYR'TERR's most 
avoided team.  Is there some award for that?  Hhmph!  What kind of warriors are DEATH 
LEGION?  THE ZOO, an easy team to beat if I ever saw one, can't get them to accept an 
invitation!   
     What does a fighter fight for?  I mean, the crowds don't give a hoot if someone 
gets killed.  Not after four more fights.  Fight, fight, fight.  Is that all you guys 
can do?   
     I really didn't, you know, study when I was a kid.  Who would've guessed I'd be 
a famous Spyreporter?  I'm getting tired of writing this stuff, so I'm calling it 
quits.  Its been really albendranius!  Later, guys-- Debby Tonte

Ah, a Userous Merchant.  What...fun.  Rather familiar, even if I don't know THIS one.
And a win is always a good thing to have. -- Benito Chatte

Hmm, a Fratsfa Slave.  This is disturbing, actually.  I mean, the Slave isn't a
Fratsfan, so that must mean that he was enslaved by them, right?  But...the Fratsfans
aren't supposed to be keeping slaves, are they? -- Faizun Gote the disturbed

Malice -- Wow, a real opponent.  (turns over the page quickly)  And I won!  That's
incredibly good news.  Thank you, Sir Malice. -- Dorine Eagel

An Embezzling Scribe!  An ominous encounter at this time of Death and Taxes.  I would
have accepted a chance to do him a major injury, but I was only able to deal out a
triviality or two.  Ah, well. -- Halda Impola

A Beggar?  Ha!  I have no need or desire to pander to BEGGARS.  Let them get jobs! --
