                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
DAYLA KIV brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Of course, we're all terribly 
impressed to see NEWBIE MGR. win a fight and gain 22 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, 
NEWBIE MGR. beat COACH and COACH lost 14 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And if 
variety is the spice of life, DAYLA KIV may be getting bland, as LOQUE stays top dog 
in the city.  Kickbacks and bribes, kickbacks and bribes, how else do you think some 
of these guys win their fights?  Skill?  Ha!   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.  
What's the big D?  GURTARG'S AXES was the most avoided team?  Bunch of lily 
livered... grumble... mumble... curse...  And it looks like FACING WORLDS avoided 
them the most this turn.  What a pack of would be losers, if you ask me.  Hmph.   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for DAYLA KIV's 
morgue.  More variety.  We're all going to die in the end, so why worry if the fate 
catches up with you sooner that later?   
     I was about to buy a new quill pen the other day, but some fighter took it for 
an epee.  Forgive me for writing with a dagger.  Well, I've had enough of this 
drivel, and I'm sure you have too.  Off like a dirty shirt of padded leather.  I see 
the crowds are getting restless, I must leave now-- Snide Clemens

Coach -- ONE skill?  You're supposed to be giving better advice than that, or what's
your NAME for? -- Terrilis
P.S.  And do NOT tell me you're a handbag.  True, your face is that bad, and I could
probably drop money into you endlessly, but I wouldn't lug you around!
P.P.S.  How can you be a dwarf and six feet tall?  They're going to have to make a
new race:  Dwarven Giant.

Loque -- Let's face, I can't face worlds.  It's hard enough to face, I dunno, a
village or something.  A whole world?  No way. -- Garmon Chang
P.S.  And then when I nerve myself to attempt it, you start to ROTATE.  Gods, I am SO
dizzy just from being NEAR you for a few seconds.

Damn!  Hanval the Claw actually HAD A CLAW!  I didn't think that was allowed in the
arena.  Not a standard weapon, sort of thing.  After all, they don't let werecats
change shape, or eilthan use their wings.  Heck, they don't even give an armor-class
boost for trolls! -- Korba Klee
P.S.  And if he snuck that claw into the arena without permission, *I* want to be the
one who explains to him--outside the arena, where I can use MY weapons of choice--how
WRONG it was.

I know that Chandar Lo is actually a member of the Chardinee Society, which is
practically a CULT, but he was quite polite and well-mannered out there.  I didn't
mind dealing with him, though he COULD have taught better.  I'm sure a cultist has
all kinds of SPECIAL knowledge. -- Chessara the disappointed

Sam Goody -- So, what do you sell, eh?  Inquiring minds, and all that. -- Jujuble

30 December 2005
Just a reminder to all you online type people.  It is much appreciated if you send
your personals in PLAIN TEXT, rather than HTML or formatted text.  HAL, in his
infinite wisdom, doesn't DO formatting, which means having to unsnarl your personal
ads from bunches of extraneous...stuff.  So, if your e-mailer has a plain text
option, let it be your friend. -- Ed.
P.S.  Sometimes it's the formatted text which makes ads go astray.  Not often, but
sometimes.
