                                      SPY REPORT

     Busy, busy, busy, lots of things happening in MORDANT this turn, and let's start 
with a look at some of the teams.  It seems the training can make the difference, as 
LOW ROAD 3 is pushed out of top team by CARNIVAL FREAKS, who came from 2nd with a 
4-1-0 this turn.  MANNEQUIN'S BEST stable has parlayed this turn's 2-2-0 into a 3 
space move up the rankings.  This brings them up to 4th place.  Good work, guys!  And 
let's see, FIANNA QUINN fought TYPHOID MARY and gained 19 points and contributed to 
LOW ROAD 3's 2-3-0.  TYPHOID MARY has lost to FIANNA QUINN, falling 16 points, while 
helping make DEATH'S DOOR a 0-1-0 turn.  Due to his absence and inability to defend 
the throne, GRASSCUTTER has lost the title of Duelmaster.  And not without some 
honor, COLOSSEUM HALLS now claims the title and throne of Duelmaster of MORDANT.  By 
the way, was that our Duelmaster that I saw last night, cramped under the table at 
Conan's Place?   
     He who challenges well, fights well.  He who avoids without cause, shall lose 
for good reasons.  My mama told me that one.  I also notice that the HOMICIDAL 
MANIACS stable was the most avoided team this turn.  Come on MORDANT, what are you 
afraid of?  And guess who avoided HOMICIDAL MANIACS stable the most?  Believe it or 
not, it was MANNEQUIN'S BEST.  Anyone surprised?  The most challenged warrior this 
turn was CARNIVAL FREAKS' warrior DAISY DUKE.  More fighters challenged her than 
challenged the Duelmaster!   
     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.  Whatever bright future GOBBLEDYGOOK 
may have had, it's all history now.  The manager of MANNEQUIN'S BEST has lost a 
promising 4-1-0 warrior.  Seriously now, is it really honorable for DOWNWITHTHEKING 
from RUN DMC to kill GOBBLEDYGOOK and give MANNEQUIN'S BEST the chance to bloodfeud?  
Mmmm, could be.  Is it really true that MORDANT has more dishwashers per capita that 
fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...   
     Remember, blood on the purple robe does not change it from a purple robe.  Dare 
to fight bravely.  Always good to rest in MORDANT, but never good to wear out my 
welcome.  Look for me in future turns.  Until you see my quill in MORDANT again, 
farewell-- Alarond the Scribe
