                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, in DAYLA KIV a quiet thief gets rich, but a quiet spymaster gets poor. 
So bring me ale and harken to my tidbits of news.  And let's see, MORO TEN ZORA 
fought MAKAR TEL SORIAN and gained 10 points and contributed to SAND DANCERS' 3-2-0.  
KOLBAN TEN TAHL has lost to DANGEROUS BON LOKAR, falling 6 points, while helping make 
SAND DANCERS a 3-2-0 turn.  The attempts to dethrone the Duelmaster have failed, and 
GENERAL MILLS remains DAYLA KIV'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 
Crystal Wheel 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.  I also notice that the SAND DANCERS stable 
was the most avoided team this turn.  Come on DAYLA KIV, what are you afraid of?  And 
guess who avoided SAND DANCERS stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was CORPS.  
Anyone surprised?   
     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.   
     Thought for the day, a new sword shines bright, but the notched sword sings the 
sweetest.  Well, I'm burning daylight here in DAYLA KIV and I've a long road ahead of 
me.  Happy Trails.  Until you see my quill in DAYLA KIV again, farewell-- Alarond the 
Scribe

Eight active gladiators in the whole arena.  Gods, what's the world coming to? --
Jorja, reviewing the newsletter gloomily
P.S.  We can't even fill out the most and/or least popular list.  Pathetic.

Ruby Tuesday -- I dunno, should I feel honored to have gotten a real match, or
depressed because you don't think I have anything to teach you?  Bet I could teach
you SOME things. -- Moro ten Zora

Aston Martin -- I don't think our sands are the right thing for you.  Not enough
traction, maybe.  And all the beads in the sand make it slippery. -- Kolban ten Tahl

General Mills -- Well, of course you won!  I'm not up for generals.  Maybe a
corporal, on a good day, which this wasn't.  Couldn't get to sleep last night, for
some reason.  And no, I'm NOT going to tell you the things that might have been
keeping me awake.  That wouldn't be the act of a gentleman. -- Dolby Klee

A Street Sweeper.  How thrilling.  We actually have a graduated teammate that sweeps
streets.  When *he* fought the Standby Street Sweeper, we couldn't even tell who'd
won, who'd learned what, anything.  Managers do this just to be cute.  Bummer. --
Moko ten Zora

Rornis the Dark tries too hard.  Not that I'm complaining.  Well, okay, I am
complaining.  He jumped right out of the starting gate and hit me, which was really,
really annoying, so I hit him back... several times.  But he never learns. -- Lirini

     As threatened, here is a current manager list for this arena.  Let me know if
     I've gotten anyone's name wrong! -- The Saint, keeper of lists
