                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail ARVAT!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed for your 
deeds.  The B.I.G. guild has had a 4-1-0 turn and deserves to be watched in the 
future.  You never know where this kind of thing can lead.  And let's see, CURTEINA 
fought TOTEM and gained 25 points and contributed to URT'S DURT URCHINS' 3-2-0.  BEA 
HEMOTH has lost to DANGEROUS CRIMINAL, falling 13 points, while helping make DEVIL 
ADVOCATES a 2-3-1 turn.  MAJ SNAFU challenged for the Duelmastership this turn, 
attempting to dethrone GASTROPUB's warrior.  Defending his title for another turn, 
GAFFEL KOLSCH kept SECRET SQUIRRELS' warrior, MAJ SNAFU, from claiming the throne.  
Tell me, is nothing sacred?  I have heard from unimpeachable sources that The 
Dripping Blade uses trolls in their stew.  Talk about gristle!   
     Oriental wise man once say, 'Hiding behind shields prevents proper sun tanning.' 
Inscrutable, but true.  BIG LAKE NOMADS has cause to stand tall, as they were ARVAT's 
most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a team to beat.  And guess who 
avoided BIG LAKE NOMADS stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was DEVIL ADVOCATES.  
Anyone surprised?  Well, sports fans, take notice that LEN MIRACLETOES from BIG LAKE 
NOMADS was ARVAT's most challenged warrior this turn.  I don't know about you, but 
THE CURE challenging down 19 points to B.I.G.'s THE SOCKS, is not really worthy of 
BIG LAKE NOMADS.  Well, it only serves justice to see that THE CURE was overcame by 
THE SOCKS.  Heh, heh.  In a brave attempt, THE LACERATION from BIG LAKE NOMADS 
challenged up 23 points to fight FEDERAL AGENT from the B.I.G. stable.  THE 
LACERATION perhaps got his just desserts, seeing as he was beat by FEDERAL AGENT and 
ended up with 63 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.  The Dripping Blade declares a free 
round for TWO RIVERS and all of GASTROPUB, for having revenged BIG LAKE NOMADS' GIL 
LEAVEKWIK for killing one of their comrades.  A brave warrior does not carry a red 
shield, he has nothing to cover or hide when the fight is over.  Consider well.   
     Remember, blood on the purple robe does not change it from a purple robe.  Dare 
to fight bravely.  Always good to rest in ARVAT, but never good to wear out my 
welcome.  Look for me in future turns.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets to 
paper-- Alarond the Scribe
