                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, friends and fiends, welcome to your friendly neighborhood spyreport.  
I doubt VALAMANTIS will ever be the same.  And let's see, STRIKE 3 fought LENDIS OHLM 
and gained 15 points and contributed to STRIKER FORCE's 3-2-0.  STRIKE 2 has lost to 
ODER QUIN, falling 12 points, while helping make STRIKER FORCE a 3-2-0 turn.  We 
should ask CARELESS BEAR about the thrill of victory, and what being the new 
Duelmaster does for a warrior, he's now the one to ask.  Tell me, is nothing sacred?  
I have heard from unimpeachable sources that Doom's Dome uses trolls in their stew.  
Talk about gristle!   
     The crowd's roar, the smell of iron and leather, mixed with sweat, what more 
could a warrior ask of life?  Well, besides that.  I also notice that the MIDDLE WAY 
10 stable was the most avoided team this turn.  Come on VALAMANTIS, what are you 
afraid of?  And avoiding MIDDLE WAY 10 more than any other team we find FACERS.  
VALAMANTIS, are we going to accept, or respect this sort of thing?  The most 
challenged warrior this turn was AQUILA's warrior XI AQUILAE.  More fighters 
challenged him than challenged the Duelmaster!   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  Is it really true that VALAMANTIS has more dishwashers per capita that 
fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...   
     Thought for the day, a new sword shines bright, but the notched sword sings the 
sweetest.  Always good to rest in VALAMANTIS, but never good to wear out my welcome.  
Look for me in future turns.  Until you see my quill in VALAMANTIS again, farewell-- 
Alarond the Scribe

Two-three, and one of those losses was MINE, to the Kung-fu Master.  Despite which
loss, I retained the title, and THAT tells you something sad about the state of our
arena. -- Lon Olbert
