                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail MORDANT!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed for your 
deeds.  SWEORDMASTERS stable has parlayed this turn's 2-2-1 into a 3 space move up 
the rankings.  This brings them up to 3rd place.  Good work, guys!  And let's see, 
DEREN fought INSOLENT FURY and gained 12 points and contributed to WRATHMEN's 1-1-0.  
INSOLENT FURY has lost to DEREN, falling 8 points, while helping make YUPPIE HORDE a 
2-1-0 turn.  The attempts to dethrone the Duelmaster have failed, and HERUGRIM 
remains MORDANT's top warrior for another turn.  By the way, was that our Duelmaster 
that I saw last night, cramped under the table at Conan's Place?   
     He who challenges well, fights well.  He who avoids without cause, shall lose 
for good reasons.  My mama told me that one.  RUN DMC has cause to stand tall, as 
they were MORDANT's most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a team to beat. 
And guess who avoided RUN DMC stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was 
SWEORDMASTERS.  Anyone surprised?   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  The grave that SWEORDMASTERS had dug for HILDEWULF may yet be filled with 
the body of BLACK ORC.  Seldom are the likes of this to be seen.  HILDEWULF lives 
still!  A brave warrior does not carry a red shield, he has nothing to cover or hide 
when the fight is over.  Consider well.   
     Remember, blood on the purple robe does not change it from a purple robe.  Dare 
to fight bravely.  Always good to rest in MORDANT, 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
