                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail JHELUM!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed for your 
deeds.  It seems the training can make the difference, as TANKS FOR NOTHIN' is pushed 
out of top team by DOGS OF WAR, who came from 3rd with a 5-0-0 this turn.  And let's 
see, ULTIMATE HOTTY fought MIA2 and gained 26 points and contributed to LUROCIANS 
Z2's 3-1-1.  THE PROSTITUTE has lost to LEONIDAS, falling 24 points, while helping 
make THE WALL a 0-3-0 turn.  Defending hers title for another turn, PANTHER kept F 
BALLS' warrior, FOOS BALL, from claiming the throne.  Tell me, is nothing sacred?  I 
have heard from unimpeachable sources that The Dripping Blade uses trolls in their 
stew.  Talk about gristle!   
     I tell you, a green quarterstaff lasts longer than a seasoned sapling.  A basher 
friend of mine assures me this is true.  I also notice that the THE WALL stable was 
the most avoided team this turn.  Come on JHELUM, what are you afraid of?  And guess 
who avoided THE WALL stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was TANKS FOR NOTHIN'.  
Anyone surprised?   
     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.  Had I not seen it, it would be hard 
to believe.  ULTIMATE PAIN was sent to the Dark Arena and lived to tell about it!  
Makes you think, no?  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.   
     Remember, blood on the purple robe does not change it from a purple robe.  Dare 
to fight bravely.  Always good to rest in JHELUM, but never good to wear out my 
welcome.  Look for me in future turns.  Until you see my quill in JHELUM again, 
farewell-- Alarond the Scribe
