                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
KYR'TERR brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Of course, we're all terribly 
impressed to see RONEN win a fight and gain 20 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, PINEAPPLE 
beat KALI FLOWER and KALI FLOWER lost 4 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And if 
variety is the spice of life, KYR'TERR may be getting bland, as HAUGHA RYDE 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, KYR'TERR?   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.  What's 
the big D?  NIGHTHAWKS was the most avoided team?  Bunch of lily livered... 
grumble... mumble... curse...  And it looks like PIZZA TOPPINGS avoided them the most 
this turn.  What a pack of would be losers, if you ask me.  Hmph.  Ooh, I'm 
frightfully impressed, HAM was this turn's most challenged warrior.  Watch that ego 
swell, sports fans.   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  We're all going to die in the end, so why worry if 
the fate catches up with you sooner that later?   
     What does the KYR'TERR arena have in common with the inns?  It's just as 
comfortable to sleep in either place.  Ha ha ha ha!  Well, I've had enough of this 
drivel, and I'm sure you have too.  Off like a dirty shirt of padded leather.  Glad 
to see the back of this place-- Snide Clemens

Haugha Ryde -- Good luck, and may you stay at the top for a long time, or until one
of my team mates are ready. -- Kesterel

Ham -- I like bacon better. -- Dagger

Anchovy Jr -- Let's try that again. -- Warhawk

Jalapeno -- I can't complain, close though. -- Roven

Dagger -- You tried to poke me. -- Ham

Sally Turkel -- I see you learned some new tricks. -- Pineapple

Ronen -- I hit you with great axe, why you still standing? -- Jalapeno

Warhawk -- I won that? --Anchovy Jr

Jumpin' Jimminy -- Can't hit you when you keep jumping. -- Green Pepper

Zoo -- Zoo, Zoo, Zoo.  I'm coming to be the next top dog. -- Your buddy, Pizza

Kesterel -- Thanks for the luck, I'll need it. -- Haugha Ryde
P.S.  I just consider myself lucky not to be called Naugha Hyde.

Warhawk -- That kind of thing happens.  Nobody's out there playing tiddlywinks. 
Well, except in Osksi, where I have a warrior named Tiddlywinks.  We generally don't
bloodfeud, unless we're really, really annoyed and feel our teammate was deliberately
targeted for death. -- Jorja and the Zoo

Four-one, and *I* had the loss and still took the title.  Things can be strange. --

     Zeb Karan around the big table.  Arena staff of all ranks and titles sat and 
stared at each other:  arenamasters, standbys, Dark Arena warriors, stewards and 
infirmarians, even the maintenance crew.  This was not the first time they'd met like 
this, and it probably wouldn't be the last.
     "So this is it again, is it?" Lew Voth asked.  "Less than seven years since they 
closed Dwes Eg to new teams, and now they're closing Blackstone?"
     "Only to new teams," one of the spymasters pointed out.  "And it's necessary.  
There are several file rooms we haven't been able to enter in months because they're 
too full of team records."
     "Nothing you couldn't fix with a lighted match," Jame Rinvar suggested.  
Technically he should not have been there, since he'd taken over full time as the 
arenamaster of Shadowspire.  But no one wanted to tell him to leave.
     "We may NEED those records one of these days," Chief Steward Hesselrod protested.  
"We can't burn RECORDS."
     "I could," Rinvar said.
     "But you won't."  Voth pinned him with a stare.  "Don't stir up trouble for its 
own sake, Jame."
     Rinvar raised his hand in a gesture of surrender.  "I'll be good, Lew."
     "When are they shutting down Blackstone?"
     "To new teams only, remember--the old ones will keep fighting if their managers 
want to pay the fees.  This week.  Maybe next week.  Hard to be sure, when you travel 
from Alastari to anywhere else, there's a time distortion effect.  But probably this 
week.  Same operating rules as Dwes Eg (82):  no new teams in, but the old ones can 
recruit new members.  New teams will go to the new place--"  Zeb Karan cast a look of 
enquiry around the room.
     "Jasper Gulch," a steward said.
     "Right.  New teams will go to Jasper Gulch.  I'm not sure the day for it, probably 
'opposite' Blackstone in the schedule.  A regular two-week cycle.  Teams can be 
transfered in from regular arenas, I suppose, but not OUT."
     Voth nodded.  "We can work with this."
     "Beats not working."
