                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail KYR'TERR!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed for your 
deeds.  It seems the training can make the difference, as HAZAARDS OF CLONING is 
pushed out of top team by TRIBE FRACTAL LUX, who came from 3rd with a 2-1-0 this 
turn.  I want to know who's buying the drinks for who tonight at The Swinging 
Aardvark, seeing as WRATHMEN XVI's 19-20-3 has earned them 10th place in the ranks.  
Now keep the taverns open late tonight, for there are sorrows to drown for E IS FOR 
ELEPHANT, whose 0-0-0 this turn dropped them by 6 into 30th.  And let's see, EAT A 
HELICOPTER fought CALLED WANDA and gained 15 points and contributed to FEAR FACTORY 
15's 1-0-0.  CALLED WANDA has lost to EAT A HELICOPTER, falling 13 points, while 
helping make F IS FOR FISH a 1-2-0 turn.  Due to its absence and inability to defend 
the throne, ULTIMATE MIME FIGHT has lost the title of Duelmaster.  We should ask 
KHARONA about the thrill of victory, and what being the new Duelmaster does for a 
warrior, she's now the one to ask.  By the way, was that our Duelmaster that I saw 
last night, cramped under the table at The Swinging Aardvark?   
     He who challenges well, fights well.  He who avoids without cause, shall lose 
for good reasons.  My mama told me that one.  WS BATS '05 has cause to stand tall, as 
they were KYR'TERR's most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a team to 
beat.  And guess who avoided WS BATS '05 stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was 
TRIBE FRACTAL LUX.  Anyone surprised?  The most challenged warrior this turn was A IS 
FOR APPLE's warrior HORSE.  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.  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.  Always good to rest in KYR'TERR, but never good to wear out my welcome.  
Look for me in future turns.  Until you see my quill in KYR'TERR again, farewell-- 
Alarond the Scribe
