                                      SPY REPORT

     I was going on vacation, see?  Surf, sun...  But what do those bums say?  "Hit 
the road, Debby Tonte.  LIN TIRIAN needs a spyreport."  Oh, well.  Too bad, SAND 
DANCERS, but MEDAL OF HONOR Z2 was just too good to be stopped.  MVP award for 
SERGEANT 4?  MEDAL OF HONOR Z2's proud of him after beating THE MONGOOSE and getting 
11 points.  Talk about yer major upsets!  SERGEANT 3's match with PERSIPHONE cost him 
a loss of 4 points!  Our last turn's Duelmaster has lost, folks, lost to VENEMOUS 
CONCUBINE, and SERGEANT 2 has made the way for a new Duelmaster!  SERGEANT 4 of MEDAL 
OF HONOR Z2 takes SERGEANT 2's place.  (But seriously, who could ever take the place 
of SERGEANT 2?  Oh, all right.) Who was the wiseguy that said LIN TIRIAN's Duelmaster 
was paying for drinks at The Lost Hope Inn?  Don't look at me!   
     So just why would someone becomes a warrior anyway?  It can't be for these 
really neat Spyreports can it?  Like, is THE MONGOOSE popular, or what?  He was 
challenged the most in all of LIN TIRIAN!  He's got a 14-6-0, is that good?   
     Challenges, revenges, Bloodfeuds.  All LIN TIRIAN ever talks about is fighting!  
Me, I'm more laid back.  Hey you guys, don't you think your families would like to 
hear from you?  Write!  (Or have someone write for you.)  
     I really didn't, you know, study when I was a kid.  Who would've guessed I'd be 
a famous Spyreporter?  I know how much you like reading this stuff, but I really 
should stop.  Remember you guys, ease up sometimes!  Chill out!  Later, Debby Tonte

Going by the logic of last time, Sergeant 2, having taken the title on the win over
the sitting duelmaster, will NOT be required to write a column.  Like he would
anyway!  Good cess to him, he earned what he's got. -- the Mongoose

    There was a line outside the Gladiatorial Commission's registry office.  There 
often was, but surely not now?  Alarond the Scribe, who had drawn office duty today, 
frowned at them.
    A stocky, fit, moderately handsome gladiator stepped up to the counter.  "I want a 
name-change," he said.  "How can I do my best known as," he shuddered, "'Dangling 
Eyeball'?  My name is Joe, and I want to use it."
    A small and very shapely woman stepped up beside him.  "And I am really tired of 
being known as 'DA Bait'."  She smiled, causing Alarond to sway where he stood.  "I'd 
like to be known as... Aphrodite, I think."
    The others crowded forward, each advancing a claim, the babble of voice rising to 
a roar, the crowd beginning to look like a mob--and every member of it armed and 
dangerous.
    Alarond raised his hands to quiet them, without much success.  He raised his 
voice, too.  "We'll do it!  A Name-Change-O-Rama, as soon as we can get the paperwork 
lined up!  Two or three months, maybe--"
    The gladiators howled in protest at the delay.
    "No, listen!  The files here are HUGE, it will take time to get everything 
straight.  You've got to be patient.  It WILL happen!"
