                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, friends and fiends, welcome to your friendly neighborhood spyreport.  
I doubt ERINIKA will ever be the same.  It seems the training can make the 
difference, as M IS FOR MONKEY is pushed out of top team by WHO DA MAN?, who came 
from 3rd with a 2-1-0 this turn.  Now keep the taverns open late tonight, for there 
are sorrows to drown for FEAR FACTORY 7, whose 0-0-0 this turn dropped them by 9 into 
17th.  FEAR FACTORY 4 stable has parlayed this turn's 2-0-0 into a 9 space move up 
the rankings.  This brings them up to 4th place.  Good work, guys!  And let's see, 
WORLDS COLLIDE fought DANGEROUS CRIMINAL and gained 16 points and contributed to FEAR 
FACTORY 5's 1-0-0.  KLEPTO MAN has lost to VENEMOUS CONCUBINE, falling 13 points, 
while helping make WHO DA MAN? a 2-1-0 turn.  Defending his title for another turn, 
BUGG-SHASH kept ERINIKA's warrior, KUNG-FU MASTER, from claiming the throne.  Can 
someone confirm a rumor for me?  I hear the top team makes their losing fighters do 
dishes at The Swinging Aardvark 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.   
     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.   
     I like this place, ERINIKA, the taverns have old wine, and young serving girls.  
Who could ask for more?  Well, I'm burning daylight here in ERINIKA and I've a long 
road ahead of me.  Happy Trails.  Until you see my quill in ERINIKA again, farewell-- 
Alarond the Scribe
