                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, friends and fiends, welcome to your friendly neighborhood spyreport.  
I doubt TALCAMA will ever be the same.  And let's see, JOEY fought BUSY BEE and 
gained 15 points and contributed to SHEPHERDS' 1-1-0.  BUSY BEE has lost to JOEY, 
falling 16 points, while helping make HIP HOP HEROES a 2-2-0 turn.  Our Duelmaster 
has lost, folks, lost to KHALHUMS DWARF, BUT NASTY NAS is still the Duelmaster 
because he has the most recognition points!  Tell me, is nothing sacred?  I have 
heard from unimpeachable sources that The Original Arthur's Last Stand uses trolls in 
their stew.  Talk about gristle!   
     He who challenges well, fights well.  He who avoids without cause, shall lose 
for good reasons.  My mama told me that one.  I also notice that the MMA NICKNAMES 
stable was the most avoided team this turn.  Come on TALCAMA, what are you afraid of? 
And avoiding MMA NICKNAMES more than any other team we find SHEPHERDS.  TALCAMA, are 
we going to accept, or respect this sort of thing?   
     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.  Is it really true that TALCAMA has 
more dishwashers per capita that fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...   
     Thought for the day, a new sword shines bright, but the notched sword sings the 
sweetest.  Always good to rest in TALCAMA, but never good to wear out my welcome.  
Look for me in future turns.  Until you see my quill in TALCAMA again, farewell-- 
Alarond the Scribe
