                                      SPY REPORT

     Busy, busy, busy, lots of things happening in ERINIKA this turn, and let's start 
with a look at some of the teams.  It seems the training can make the difference, as 
MIDDLE WAY 18 is pushed out of top team by CALENDAR GIRLS, who came from 2nd with a 
3-0-0 this turn.  CANADIAN WHISKEY stable has parlayed this turn's 1-1-0 into a 4 
space move up the rankings.  This brings them up to 5th place.  Good work, guys!  The 
CALENDAR GIRLS guild has had a 3-0-0 turn and deserves to be watched in the future.  
You never know where this kind of thing can lead.  And let's see, NEPTUNE SCREAM 
fought ENGLISH LEATHER and gained 38 points and contributed to DARQUE WATERS' 1-4-1.  
THE BLACK DEATH has lost to LADY LOVE, falling 21 points, while helping make DARQUE 
WATERS a 1-4-1 turn.  Defending his title for another turn, MAJOR BRADBURY kept 
DARQUE WATERS' warrior, THE POISON ANGER, from claiming the throne.  Tell me, is 
nothing sacred?  I have heard from unimpeachable sources that The Swinging Aardvark 
uses trolls in their stew.  Talk about gristle!   
     Oriental wise man once say, 'Hiding behind shields prevents proper sun tanning.' 
Inscrutable, but true.  I also notice that the DUDS stable was the most avoided team 
this turn.  Come on ERINIKA, what are you afraid of?  And avoiding DUDS more than any 
other team we find CALENDAR GIRLS.  ERINIKA, are we going to accept, or respect this 
sort of thing?  Well, sports fans, take notice that WEDNESDAY ADDAMS from CALENDAR 
GIRLS was ERINIKA's most challenged warrior this turn.  THE BIG BANG of THE BEGINNING 
had better have a good reason for challenging down 12 points in a challenge which he 
lost.  I thought THE BIG BANG showed great skill and promise when he was beat by 
WEDNESDAY ADDAMS.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     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.  Banners at half mast, warriors, 
WORLDWIDE GORE has lost ENGLISH LEATHER, and you might say all of ERINIKA has felt 
the loss, except maybe DARQUE WATERS.  Is it really true that ERINIKA has more 
dishwashers per capita that fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...   
     I like this place, ERINIKA, the taverns have old wine, and young serving girls.  
Who could ask for more?  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 ERINIKA again, 
farewell-- Alarond the Scribe

From:       The Office of Accurate Census Reporting, Gladiatorial Commission
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 80 characters long.  For any questions, please contact the 
Gladiatorial Commission.
