                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail ARVAT!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed for your 
deeds.  It seems the training can make the difference, as BIG LAKE NOMADS is pushed 
out of top team by DEVIL ADVOCATES, who came from 4th with a 4-1-0 this turn.  Now 
keep the taverns open late tonight, for there are sorrows to drown for GIANT KILLERS, 
whose 0-0-0 this turn dropped them by 5 into 12th.  DEVIL ADVOCATES stable has 
parlayed this turn's 4-1-0 into a 3 space move up the rankings.  This brings them up 
to 1st place.  Good work, guys!  And let's see, ALCOHOLIC fought VICTORY and gained 
20 points and contributed to NON's 3-2-1.  The attempts to dethrone the Duelmaster 
have failed, and GERMAN PILSENER remains ARVAT's top warrior for another turn.  By 
the way, was that our Duelmaster that I saw last night, cramped under the table at 
The Dripping Blade?   
     He who challenges well, fights well.  He who avoids without cause, shall lose 
for good reasons.  My mama told me that one.  GASTROPUB 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 GASTROPUB stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was DEVIL 
ADVOCATES.  Anyone surprised?  The most challenged warrior this turn was DWARFED's 
warrior KRAG IRONFIST.  More fighters challenged him than challenged the Duelmaster!  
In a brave attempt, INTAIL ANNALYST from SECRET SQUIRRELS challenged up 20 points to 
fight KRAG IRONFIST from the DWARFED stable.  INTAIL ANNALYST perhaps got hers just 
desserts, seeing as she won victory over KRAG IRONFIST and ended up with 53 
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.   
     Thought for the day, a new sword shines bright, but the notched sword sings the 
sweetest.  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
