                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail ILLIS!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed for your 
deeds.  It seems the training can make the difference, as VICIOUS VAMPS is pushed out 
of top team by YOUNG GUNS, who came from 2nd with a 1-1-0 this turn.  CHAPEL ROCK 
stable has parlayed this turn's 3-1-0 into a 3 space move up the rankings.  This 
brings them up to 3rd place.  Good work, guys!  And let's see, RECOVERY SETBACK 
fought OCEAN SPRAY and gained 15 points and contributed to BASHAHOLICS ANON's 2-0-0.  
OCEAN SPRAY has lost to RECOVERY SETBACK, falling 11 points, while helping make BOOK 
OF THOMAS a 3-2-0 turn.  Well done, ILLIS, the Duelmaster was this turn's most 
challenged warrior.  Perhaps WILD BILL is not as thrilled, being challenged 4 times.  
IRISH FLAG challenged for the Duelmastership this turn, attempting to dethrone YOUNG 
GUNS' warrior.  Defending his title for another turn, WILD BILL kept HANGOVERS' 
warrior, IRISH FLAG, from claiming the throne.  Can someone confirm a rumor for me?  
I hear the top team makes their losing fighters do dishes at The Warty Toad until 
they win.  Maybe?   
     The crowd's roar, the smell of iron and leather, mixed with sweat, what more 
could a warrior ask of life?  Well, besides that.  YOUNG GUNS has cause to stand 
tall, as they were ILLIS' most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a team to 
beat.  And guess who avoided YOUNG GUNS stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was 
HANGOVERS.  Anyone surprised?   
     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.  A brave warrior does not carry a 
red shield, he has nothing to cover or hide when the fight is over.  Consider well.   
     Thought for the day, a new sword shines bright, but the notched sword sings the 
sweetest.  Well, I'm burning daylight here in ILLIS and I've a long road ahead of me. 
Happy Trails.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets to paper-- Alarond the Scribe
