                                      SPY REPORT

     Busy, busy, busy, lots of things happening in ZORPUNT this turn, and let's start 
with a look at some of the teams.  And let's see, EIRE fought EMBEZZLING SCRIBE and 
gained 20 points and contributed to INTERNATIONAL's 3-1-1.  Well done, ZORPUNT, the 
Duelmaster was this turn's most challenged warrior.  Perhaps POINT SAYER is not as 
thrilled, being challenged 2 times.  Defending his title for another turn, POINT 
SAYER kept NO 46's warrior, DATE LUMPY, from claiming the throne.  Tell me, is 
nothing sacred?  I have heard from unimpeachable sources that The Welcome Wench uses 
trolls in their stew.  Talk about gristle!   
     I tell you, a green quarterstaff lasts longer than a seasoned sapling.  A basher 
friend of mine assures me this is true.  TRIBE has cause to stand tall, as they were 
ZORPUNT's most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a team to beat.  And 
guess who avoided TRIBE stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was INTERNATIONAL.  
Anyone surprised?  In a brave attempt, GALAPAGOS from INTERNATIONAL challenged up 21 
points to fight GHAZAT from the ORCS VI stable.  GALAPAGOS perhaps got its just 
desserts, seeing as it defeated GHAZAT and ended up with 46 recognition points.   
     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.  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 the sun next rises and my pen sets to 
paper-- Alarond the Scribe
