                                      SPY REPORT

     Today saw the return of two veteran teams, THE STORM REAVERS and THE CANUCKS.  
Welcome back!  I can honestly say I do miss teams when they are gone.  Though when you 
are here I take you for granted because you are all nothing special.  Also returning 
to the sands was BIRDS.  I can only hope to call them a missed veteran at some point 
in the future.  Or better yet, maybe they'll never again go missing and just become a 
veteran team.  And making their debut was LUPUS.  And in a single day, our numbers 
jump to 16 teams.  You all fielded 53 total warriors in 30 fights.  Four of those 
fights were in the Dark Arena and 5 were challenges.
     MILITARY MAYHEM edged out THE CANUCKS for the top team for the turn.  Both went 
4-1, but MILITARY MAYHEM got a kill and and an award while THE CANUCKS got none.  
Apathy continues to reign and perhaps it is fitting that there is NO Duelmaster this 
turn.  The last two Duelmaster's have written a grand total of 7 words in 3 turns.  
That is some impressive nothing.  In fact, I will open it up to EITHER of the 
recognition leaders (WHO FOUGHT) to submit columns.  If both submit a column, I can 
assure you both will be printed next turn.  If one of you submits a column, that 
column will be printed.  We will even 'rename' the column to 'THE NOT DUELMASTER'S 
COLUMN' next turn in honor of someone caring enough to write.  So let's see what ARSON 
and BRUTALIX have for next turn.  It may be your only chance to write such an article 
in this arena!
     I noticed that all 10 styles fought, though amusingly 3 styles only had one 
representative each.  You'll all be shocked to hear that they were the parry-x styles.  
Only a couple fights to note this turn.

EVE OF DESTRUCTION was slain by SUN DROP in a 1 minute beginner's fight.

Yes, that is SUN DROP with not only an undefeated streak, but tacking on the kills at 
the same time.

URAKO WITSTEALER subdued ADIOS AMIGO in a popular 1 minute master's match.

And here we have two veteran warrior struggling to get back to a .500 record with near 
identical records.  By far the best match I saw this week.
    Who got the most avoids this time?  Well it was a tie.  OTTOBAHN and WHAMMO & 
THUDDA 4U both were given 6 avoids each.  SHADOWHOLD gave the two teams each two 
avoids.  Interestingly, the number of warriors that made those 12 avoids was seven. So 
most everyone who avoided one of those teams avoided both.
    And just in case you think I've gone soft.  LADY SMITH - better work on your 
naming abilities.  Surely with so many words in your vocubulary you can find a better 
name and weapon than a necktie.  Clearly weak.  And why did I not write a spy report 
last turn?  None of your business!!!

Hey, Frenchie!  Did you read my message to Numbers Gamers last round?  No?  Here it 
is, altered just for you.........  LG, gee.   And we thought you loved us Useful 
Weapons?  I am sorry if Smithy and our Misfit Weapons hurt your feelings with the 
challenges, methods, and strategies.  We all really are nice people when you get to 
know us.  Sadly for you, I guess, this is a Darkholm Arena, and the ambience and 
tempestuous Spy Reporter (the lovely and sultry Belinda -- not that worthless Olaf) 
promotes harsh and unhealthy methods.  Did you know that this arena is not Andorian?  
It is unlikely that Smithy, who is quite a stubborn fellow, will change his ways.  
Shucks, I have been trying to change him for years.  So I do wish you luck, pleasure, 
and winning ways moving forward.  May the force be with you. -- Lady Smith

Nehi, thanks for the challenge.  I needed the easy win.  I am a grape fan.  Nothing 
like a Nehi Grape. (wink) -- Necktie, Useful Weapons

Kathryn Kelly, bwahahahahahahaha.  Challenge me and you get whacked!  Bam! Bam! Bam!  
Bwahahahaha. -- Pool Cue (a killer of a pool shark)
