                                      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 SILENT ONE win a fight and gain 21 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, 
CRIMSON COMET beat SERGEANT 4 and SERGEANT 4 lost 9 points.  You're breakin' my 
heart.  And if variety is the spice of life, DAYLA KIV may be getting bland, as 
NEWBIE MGR. 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.   
     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?   
     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.  Phlllt!  Just had to do that before 
I leave the fine city of DAYLA KIV.  I feel much better now.  Glad to see the back of 
this place-- Snide Clemens

Tolbins Ladies -- My apologies for Cleo.  I'm not sure if this will help of hurt more, 
but I was running a 3 KD and attacking a non-vital. -- The Newb

Hmm, no personals, but we can fix that.  We're back, at least for now, probably for 
the rest of this year, and then we'll re-evaluate.  We'll hunt down our replacements 
and get them onto the sands.  And we'll write personals all over the newsletter, 
assuming we can get the lightning pigeons to deliver them to the Commission.  Jorja 
says we might even get small adventures, which would be preferable to large ones, I 
can tell you that.  I've known people who went on large adventures, and some of them 
DIED.

They tell me I wouldn't have a problem with that now that I'm a Lord Protector, but 
I've got my doubts.  I've been studying on that since I got the notice.  I actually 
read the notice and asked questions about it.  Title and lands--for Lirith Kai, that 
usually means lands on a wild border where I'd have to fight constantly.  Not 
definitely BAD, but not some kind of free gift, you know?  I'm thinking about that.  
Could mean adventures in defending the border.

And the immortality thing, where is THAT promised in writing with an official seal on 
it?  People who've gone the route tell me that the actual promise is for eternal 
youth, or eternal whatever-age-you-are when you first go to the Isle, and an unsecured 
promise of resurrection in case of death, provided the body is brought to the Isle.  
Not as encouraging as a person might wish for, and I'm not sure I wish for even that.  
So I'm just thinking about it so far.  It isn't like anyone needs me on the Isle, or I 
want to go there.  I hear it's crowded, and I never much cared for crowds.

So, this is the Sand Dancers, back--not that we've been away--and writing stuff.  One 
round of drinks on us at the Crystal Wheel. -- Kulvar ten Kogan
P.S.  SMALL SHIELD?  Excuse me?  That's just ridiculous.

Two-one against standbys.  Nobody to write personals TO, although Kulvar seems to have 
produced plenty. -- Biakal s'Kren
