                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail LIN TIRIAN!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed for 
your deeds.  And let's see, HALGAR SNAGTOOTH fought DANGEROUS CRIMINAL and gained 14 
points and contributed to SAND DANCERS' 2-3-0.  RED COULTER has lost to AMBITIOUS 
GUARD, falling 16 points, while helping make SAND DANCERS a 2-3-0 turn.  The attempts 
to dethrone the Duelmaster have failed, and CONJURER remains LIN TIRIAN's top warrior 
for another turn.  Tell me, is nothing sacred?  I have heard from unimpeachable 
sources that The Lost Hope Inn uses trolls in their stew.  Talk about gristle!   
     Oriental wise man once say, 'Hiding behind shields prevents proper sun tanning.' 
Inscrutable, but true.  I also notice that the SAND DANCERS stable was the most 
avoided team this turn.  Come on LIN TIRIAN, what are you afraid of?  And guess who 
avoided SAND DANCERS stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was MAGIC ARTISTS.  
Anyone surprised?   
     The Dark Arena is for those who cannot win, not who cannot lose with grace.  
Dignity in life or death is the warrior's creed.  A brave warrior does not carry a 
red shield, he has nothing to cover or hide when the fight is over.  Consider well.   
     Thought for the day, a new sword shines bright, but the notched sword sings the 
sweetest.  Always good to rest in LIN TIRIAN, but never good to wear out my welcome.  
Look for me in future turns.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets to paper-- 
Alarond the Scribe

This is my DM Column, and because it is a little short, it is posted in the lower
extremities of the newsletter.  Where it belongs.... -- Conjurer (who had no problem
using a concubine or a Shana to gain a title)

Shana -- Come back when you grow up, girl....  (always loved that song) -- Conjurer

Shana -- Does that mean you renounce abjuring, but accept conjuring? -- Abjurer

Chelbageera -- I take great pride in that, although I must admit that scamming one
with a name like Chelbagwhatever is not difficult. -- Con Man

Convicted Thief -- Thanks for the practice. -- Witch and Witch Doctor (and probably
everybody else)

Conjurer -- You're just as bad as your teammate.  Worse, because you're female; you
should be on MY side. -- Shana Two-Knives

The Ambitious Guard is a joke. -- Messalida
P.S.  I laugh.  Ha.  Ha.

Con Man -- But...but I gave you all my money!  You said I'd get great stuff when the
caravan came in, and now you say it was attacked and destroyed! -- Chelbagheera

I don't do orcs. -- Halgar Snagtooth

Yeah, well, I have nothing against beating up foreign slaves. -- Red Coulter

Necromancer -- Just so you KNOW what's coming to you:  You DID get sucked into the
anti-necromancer story, and you're probably going to be in a lot of trouble really
soon.  So, Ha! -- Shana Two-Knives
