                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, in TRANSEL a quiet thief gets rich, but a quiet spymaster gets poor.  
So bring me ale and harken to my tidbits of news.  And let's see, TINA TUNA fought 
ZALADANE and gained 22 points and contributed to EAT EM RAW BUG's 1-4-0.  LONG TALL 
TEA has lost to SILENT, falling 10 points, while helping make EAT EM RAW BUG a 1-4-0 
turn.  And not without some honor, BLIND WILLIAM now claims the title and throne of 
Duelmaster of TRANSEL.  Can someone confirm a rumor for me?  I hear the top team 
makes their losing fighters do dishes at The Victory Tavern until they win.  Maybe?   
     Oriental wise man once say, 'Hiding behind shields prevents proper sun tanning.' 
Inscrutable, but true.   
     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 TRANSEL, 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
