                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, friends and fiends, welcome to your friendly neighborhood spyreport.  
I doubt NIATOLI ISLAND will ever be the same.  It seems the training can make the 
difference, as OBSIDIAN HALL is pushed out of top team by THE ILLEARTH, who came from 
4th with a 3-2-1 this turn.  Now keep the taverns open late tonight, for there are 
sorrows to drown for WEIRD STUDENTS, whose 1-4-0 this turn dropped them by 8 into 
11th.  BAD COMPANY stable has parlayed this turn's 4-1-1 into a 5 space move up the 
rankings.  This brings them up to 3rd place.  Good work, guys!  The BIG LAKE BANDITS 
guild has had a 3-1-0 turn and deserves to be watched in the future.  You never know 
where this kind of thing can lead.  And let's see, BLACKTOOTH GRIM fought BYRTHAA and 
gained 25 points and contributed to THE ILLEARTH's 3-2-1.  TACOMA has lost to 
UNWANTED GUESTS, falling 16 points, while helping make RAVAGING LORDS a 2-2-0 turn.  
FEVER DOG challenged for the Duelmastership this turn, attempting to dethrone THE 
APOSTLES' warrior.  And all eyes were on FEVER DOG this turn as he ascended to the 
throne of Duelmaster.  NIATOLI ISLAND has a new victor!  By the way, was that our 
Duelmaster that I saw last night, cramped under the table at The Don't Drop Inn?   
     The crowd's roar, the smell of iron and leather, mixed with sweat, what more 
could a warrior ask of life?  Well, besides that.  BIG LAKE BANDITS has cause to 
stand tall, as they were NIATOLI ISLAND's most avoided team.  A smart manager knows 
this is a team to beat.  And avoiding BIG LAKE BANDITS more than any other team we 
find BRASH BROS XMAS.  NIATOLI ISLAND, are we going to accept, or respect this sort 
of thing?  Well, sports fans, take notice that DEVIANT MONK from OBSIDIAN HALL was 
NIATOLI ISLAND's most challenged warrior this turn.  I don't know about you, but 
DAGGER DALE challenging down 19 points to BAD COMPANY's SCAB SQUIZZLE, is not really 
worthy of OBSIDIAN HALL.  We're not surprised to hear that DAGGER DALE bested SCAB 
SQUIZZLE, but I bet it would be interesting to hear why OBSIDIAN HALL made such a 
challenge.  In a fit of brilliance or of stupidity (hard to say sometimes), BEDAZZLER 
challenged CLEAN UP today, facing a 26 difference in recognition.  And crowds were on 
their feet when BEDAZZLER claimed a victory from CLEAN UP, and now has 43 points for 
his efforts.  Well now, what do you expect when someone like TICKLES MALLOY from BAD 
COMPANY challenges down 26 points to fight BLOODTHORN of XXX BANDITS?  It pains me to 
see warriors take advantage of the system like this.  TICKLES MALLOY bested 
BLOODTHORN, as if it surprises anyone.  In a brave attempt, SKELETOR from XXX BANDITS 
challenged up 22 points to fight JUNEAU from the RAVAGING LORDS stable.  SKELETOR 
perhaps got his just desserts, seeing as he was subdued by JUNEAU and ended up with 4 
recognition points.   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  Banners at half mast, warriors, OBSIDIAN HALL has lost BYRTHAA, and you 
might say all of NIATOLI ISLAND has felt the loss, except maybe THE ILLEARTH.  It's a 
dark day for DUELMASTERS BUFFET, seeing how THE RABBI from THE APOSTLES has not been 
revenged for killing NO-ARMED BANDIT.  Congratulations go out to BAD COMPANY, with 
MIGHTY KASHITZ revenging a bloodfeud against OMAHA of RAVAGING LORDS.  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.   
     Remember, blood on the purple robe does not change it from a purple robe.  Dare 
to fight bravely.  It's been nice chatting with you, until we meet again, keep your 
swords sharp and your hammers heavy.  Until you see my quill in NIATOLI ISLAND again, 
farewell-- Alarond the Scribe

integrity in the personal ads? -- Your 9th in command

To:         All Managers

In the interest of preserving our natural resources and preventing managerial writer's 
cramp, the census form has been eliminated, effective immediately.  Managers may 
register their warriors' races and/or favorite sayings by simply writing them on a 
separate piece of paper and submitting them to the Commission.  Each warrior may have 
up to 15 favorite sayings.  Each saying must be categorized Jeer, Gloat, Boredom, Ouch, 
Victory and may be up to 70 characters long.  For any questions, please contact the 
Gladiatorial Commission. 

             ATTENTION:  ALL MANAGERS WHO ARE ATTENDING THE FACE-TO-FACE

If you plan to attend the Winter Face-to-Face in Phoenix, please let Customer Service 
know.  We will hold your turns for the few days preceding the tourney, starting with 
anything that would mail out on the previous Saturday.  (This means that games due on 
Thursday the 9th (which would mail on Friday) would probably mail to you, but games 
due on the 10th and thereafter will be held and delivered to you at the tournament.  
This way, you won't have to worry about not receiving a critical turn before you 
depart for Newark, and you also don't have to worry about whether you can get a 
reprint before the first turn of the tournament is due.  

See you there!
