                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail LIN TIRIAN!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed for 
your deeds.  And let's see, DALADMAR fought EMBEZZLING SCRIBE and gained 21 points 
and contributed to WRATHMEN's 1-0-1.  THE WEEPER has lost to VENOM DRIP, falling 11 
points, while helping make SAND DANCERS a 3-2-0 turn.  Due to hers absence and 
inability to defend the throne, BUTCHERS HOOK has lost the title of Duelmaster.  And 
not without some honor, MASKED MARAUDER now claims the title and throne of Duelmaster 
of LIN TIRIAN.  Can someone confirm a rumor for me?  I hear the top team makes their 
losing fighters do dishes at The Lost Hope Inn until they win.  Maybe?   
     The crowd's roar, the smell of iron and leather, mixed with sweat, what more 
could a warrior ask of life?  Well, besides that.   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  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.   
     Remember, blood on the purple robe does not change it from a purple robe.  Dare 
to fight bravely.  It's been nice chatting with you, until we meet again, keep your 
swords sharp and your hammers heavy.  Until you see my quill in LIN TIRIAN again, 
farewell-- Alarond the Scribe

Butchers Hook -- You're really not a nice lady, are you? -- Masked Marauder, brooding 
darkly

Venom Drip -- I'm weeping because you're a PILL, a blot on the escutchen of the 
gladiators of Lin Tirian.  A poor fighter, you know, if you can't beat me. -- The 
Weeper
P.S.  Besides, you're an orc.

Who is this idiot guard to go waving his ambitions in my face? -- Anonymous

Who are YOU to go demanding names from people when you won't tell yours? -- Arbreck 
Hakali, Guard seeking to better himself

People look at me and figure I'm not the kind to think about stuff, you know?  I 
thought about this Fratsfa Slave dude I fought.  In one way, it's kinda cool that we 
imported a stuck-up Fratsfan and made him fight as a slave.  But on the other hand, 

what if it's a trick of some kind, the camel's nose thing people talk about, to get us 
to accept slavery.  THEY do, but we don't, and I don't like people even thinking of 
it.  We should throw the bum out. -- Hamfist

Pitt Can't Act -- Do you need to? -- Arnell Nasti
