                                      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 
CALENDAR GIRLS is pushed out of top team by MIDDLE WAY 18, who came from 3rd with a 
1-4-0 this turn.  DARQUE WATERS stable has parlayed this turn's 4-1-0 into a 7 space 
move up the rankings.  This brings them up to 3rd place.  Good work, guys!  And let's 
see, RAEMOND PURR fought THE POISON ANGER and gained 19 points and contributed to 
MIDDLE WAY 18's 1-4-0.  THE POISON ANGER has lost to RAEMOND PURR, falling 16 points, 
while helping make DARQUE WATERS a 4-1-0 turn.  Due to his absence and inability to 
defend the throne, MAJOR BRADBURY has lost the title of Duelmaster.  And not without 
some honor, NEPTUNE SCREAM now claims the title and throne of Duelmaster of ERINIKA.  
By the way, was that our Duelmaster that I saw last night, cramped under the table at 
The Welcome Wench?   
     Oriental wise man once say, 'Hiding behind shields prevents proper sun tanning.' 
Inscrutable, but true.   
     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.   
     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
