                                      SPY REPORT

     The top two warriors in the arena faced off for the title.  Not a fight you want 
to arrive late to, since this one was bound to be over quick.  Both have been hot 
lately, with ARSON winning 7 of his last 8 and BRUTALIX his last three.  ARSON posted 
the challenge.  I would have given the advantage to ARSON as well, but it was BRUTALIX 
who emerged victorious.  Well done and BRUTALIX will be fighting for immortality next 
round.  Likely against ARSON.
     Lots of activity that pleased this spy mistress!  PRAIRIE FIRE bloodfeuded down 
36 points to the formerly undefeated, two kill, SUN DROP. That's what you get for 
making that kind of noise, SUN DROP!  Though I love your attitude!
     However POP LIFE likes making noise!  JOLT, SUN DROP's more high powered 
teammate, not only fought off USEFUL WEAPON's challenge, but stole that WHIP right out 
of the hand of it's opponent and took a blade to it.  No more WHIP!  And JOLT is 4-0-
1!
     I'm guessing GEORGE NELSON saw that fight before his own match, because he became 
inspired.  It wasn't with the same grace (you can't catch a SLING SHOT in your bare 
hands and subsequently disarm your opponent), but after putting down his opponent, 
GEORGE NELSON dismantled that SLING SHOT permanently.  Two down for USEFUL WEAPONS 
(which seems a bit fitting give LADY SMITH's recent performances).
     And the last fight I'll highlight was URAKO WITSTEALER's 8 point downchallenge to 
ADIOS AMIGO.  It is only the downchallenge I want to highlight, really.  Neither the 
fight or the warriors were/are interesting. A couple of .500 losers facing off, but I 
love those DC's!  Win at all cost!  Next time, URAKO, DC farther, I guess!  Though I 
suppose URAKO was happy just choosing his own fight, since the alternative was taking 
one (URAKO was the most challenged warrior).
     Once again every style was represented on the sands.  No style masters of the 
parry-riposte, parry-strike, or lunging styles.  Really? Not a single lunger with a 
winning record above adepts?!?  Clearly you managers don't know how good lungers are!
     There was a three way tie for the most avoided team.  I don't recall that 
happening since I've been reporting!  I must thank the commission for providing this 
information again!  I missed it.  So the teams avoided were THE CANUCKS, JUST 
DESSERTS, and USEFUL WEAPONS. Interestingly, all 12 avoids were also made by three 
teams. WHAMMO & THUDDA 4U, BASH BROS OCEAN, and SHADOWHOLD were the teams avoiding.
     And one need no farther than WHAMMO & THUDDA 4U to know what team had the best 
turn.  When a team takes 5 awards, something is going right!  In this case, looking at 
the awards you might not realize just how right things went.  DM & recognition leader 
go together.  Same with popularity leader and this week's favorite. Nothing so 
impressive there.  And 40 points is a good total for team on the move, but would not 
imply that WHAMMO & THUDDA 4U went 5-0 on the turn.  Congratulations and well done!  
Next time try to put a kill or two in as well!
     Welcome to our arena, STABLE OF THORN!  Always happy to have new faces.  I am 
Belinda, by far the greatest spy reporter in all the lands. Some might dispute that 
fact, but they'd be wrong.  Regardless, always happy to have more to report than less, 
and that means you are important to me (though don't expect me to be nice because of 
that - nice and important don't have to go together).
