                                      SPY REPORT

     This turn was one for the birds.  After a longer than normal span between turns, 
due to the commission having troubles, fighting has resumed.  The details are a bit 
vague.  If all arenas were at a single location and you were limited perhaps to 
special devices to measure and figure out who won fights, sure, but I've never heard 
of an event that could close locations across all the lands.  I hear all of Alastari 
was affected.  Perhaps new laws and all the arenas had to be brought up to a new code.  
That makes more sense to me!  But who am I?  Just a spy reporter!
     Regardless, I'm happy to say that the fighting is on again!!!  Chimlevtal had no 
Duelmaster this turn.  TAR went inactive as promised.  So before I get back to my 
opening comment, I'll mention that USEFUL WEAPONS was avoided by BASH BROS OCEAN.  At 
least that is what my minions tell me.  I seem to me missing information I usually 
get.  I really should get myself a new batch of minions.  FHTAGN was the most 
challenged warrior and HUAYRA was the one whose challenge was recognized.  FHTAGN 
fought off the challenge and perhaps will repeat as most challenged next turn?  I 
always question these blind assertions by my minions that FHTAGN was most challenged.  
Really?  How many challenges did he get?  What happens when there is a tie?  Inquiring 
minds...
     But the exitement was all in the BIRDS!  5-0 BABY!!!  3 Awards!!!  SEAGULL 
defeated GREAT ESCAPE, TOUCAN defeated CONVICTED THIEF, WREN also beat that CONVICTED 
THIEF, GOLDFINCH took out a MORDANT DESERTER, and BLUEBIRD beat RED PEPPER.  It gets 
no better than that!  Well done and welcome to our lovely, fine, arena!
     And before I sign off, the stats for the turn:
1 DA and 18 fights (0 bloodfeuds, 6 challenges)
33 warriors representing 9 teams
All ten styles fought (surprising with only 33 warriors - well done)
     And with that, I am finished.  It is a huge encouragement to be doing this report 
again.  It was a hard time, thinking that perhaps my time as a reporter was coming to 
a close.  I may complain about being overworked and underpaid (I am, btw), but I truly 
enjoy my job and do want to keep it.

you tried (and succeeded) in killing a very promising warrior that could've brought
