     Three (3) graduates from the Consortium collection?  That is a "wow" to us,
moving us to 994 grads.  This is what the 3 looked like:

Lemon Lamb
11-9-16-15-15-5-11 ST
norm endu, great damage
17-8-1 arena 3 DMs, no tournaments
skill learn rate 1.76  adex decise only
seems to like LO/LS

Blue Blood
17-6-11-17-9-11-13 ST
poor endu, good damage
22-7-0 arena, no tournaments
skill learn rate 1.69 adex attack and decise, expert init

Ebony Eye
11(+2)-11(+1)-7-21-21-9-7 LU
good endu, norm damage (was little)
14-4-0 arena 1 DM, 29-15-0 tournaments 1 TV
skill learn rate 1.78 masters in all but parry
seems to like LO

Perhaps there will be some invaluable evidence in the faves?  Only six more to go.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Ready for some action-packed adventure, some thrills, chills and spills?  Well 
fergit it, cause this is the Spyreport for ARUAK CITY.  MVP award for VIOLET VIPER?  
ANIMAL FARM's proud of her after beating CEREBUS HIMSELF and getting 22 points.  Talk 
about yer big time losers!  RIN TIN TIN got smashed by KOKO BELLA, and lost 15 
points!  What a putz!  LEMON LAMB fights so hard to be Duelmaster, then quits 
fighting and loses the title.  No one said he was a genius...  And I was just getting 
used to the ex-Duelmaster's habit of...(!)  Oh well, welcome LAMB CHOP STOP.  Aren't 
EASTER FEASTER proud.  (Oh, my.) Who was the wiseguy that said ARUAK CITY's 
Duelmaster was paying for drinks at The Victory Tavern?  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?  The warriors of CHAOS CARNIVAL must be getting 
lonely.  They were the most avoided team.  Do you guys know something that I don't?  
Is there some deep dark secret why ANIMAL FARM's been avoiding CHAOS CARNIVAL so 
much?  Or is it just that they're too scared?  Like, is LANE TERRAZA popular, or 
what?  He was challenged the most in all of ARUAK CITY!  He's got a 5-10-0, is that 
good?   
     Challenges, revenges, Bloodfeuds.  All ARUAK CITY ever talks about is fighting!  
Me, I'm more laid back.  What if they had a fight and nobody showed up?  I'd be out 
of a job, that's what!!!   
     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.  I had a fun time, see you later-- Debby Tonte

Our congratulations to Lemon Lamb (with marjoram!), Blue Blood (needs more iron?),
and Ebony Eye (an icepack might help). -- Krill Cavalry

Kennelworth -- Caroline?  Nope, never heard of it.  We're from over where New Mexico,
Arizona, Utah, and Colorado all meet.  Talk about a quarrelsome bunch, those dudes
take the cake.  Or the Blue Corn Tortilla.  We're going to be here for, well, a
while.  Don't really know how long, it depends on things. -- Four Corners

Charolais -- Glad you won, I could NOT figure out how to drag you up the cliff to the
kitchen. -- John Asazi

Do my eyes deceive me, or do I see something like FIFTEEN standbys out there today?
These new bums were supposed to reduce that load.  The standbys have been complaining
of overwork. -- Kim O. Saby
P.S.  We, the PROPER team here, went three-two, with two of the wins being over
standbys.  THEY, the new guys hiding in the corners, fought ONLY standbys and went
five-oh.  That's just WRONG.

Mutt -- I suppose I'd better get a rabies shot. -- Kim O. Saby the Not Happy

Green Horn -- Euwh!  That's algae all over your horns, and it got on ME.  Get it OFF.
-- Wilholman Donn

Lilac Lemor -- A wimpy flower, really.  Not like a sunflower! -- Old Harold Anne

And the Osksi Noble is SERIOUSLY beaten up. -- Lane Terraza and Slow Potato

And five standbyd get what they deserve. -- We Who Lurk in the Corners
