                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, in JHELUM a quiet thief gets rich, but a quiet spymaster gets poor.  
So bring me ale and harken to my tidbits of news.  And let's see, HEX fought 
WARBURTON and gained 21 points and contributed to DREAD EMPIRE's 1-0-0.  WARBURTON 
has lost to HEX, falling 21 points, while helping make DOGS OF WAR a 3-2-0 turn.  Due 
to his absence and inability to defend the throne, RUNNING DEER has lost the title of 
Duelmaster.  By the way, was that our Duelmaster that I saw last night, cramped under 
the table at The Warty Toad?   
     Oriental wise man once say, 'Hiding behind shields prevents proper sun tanning.' 
Inscrutable, but true.  I don't know about you, but BRAVE 2 challenging down 17 
points to TL;DR's CRIME AND PUNISHMENT, is not really worthy of TRIBAL COUNCIL.  I 
thought challenges were for warriors, not cowards looking for easy wins.  BRAVE 2 won 
victory over CRIME AND PUNISHMENT, is nothing sacred?  Well now, what do you expect 
when someone like BRAVE 1 from TRIBAL COUNCIL challenges down 28 points to fight 
CUSSTER of DOGS OF WAR?  Well, will you look at this, BRAVE 1 was defeated by 
CUSSTER, and TRIBAL COUNCIL will have to explain why they made such a challenge in 
the first place.   
     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.   
     Thought for the day, a new sword shines bright, but the notched sword sings the 
sweetest.  Always good to rest in JHELUM, but never good to wear out my welcome.  
Look for me in future turns.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets to paper-- 
Alarond the Scribe

Wow, six active teams!  We must've won a lottery.

Brave 2 -- You guys always gravel my drawers!  I plug along from turn to turn for
MONTHS without a break, climbing the ranks.  Then you pop in and sweep the board,
being full of frisk after a long vacation.  I hope you APPRECIATE having a manager
who CARES about things. -- Cussin' Cusster

Wise Owl -- I will not follow the example of my teammate and complain!  Of course, I
won, which makes a difference, but he is such a grumbler, you could hardly imagine
it.  I thank you kindly for that win, which I did not expect. -- Blind Betsy

Orcs are SCUM.  Not in the arena sense, but the scum of Alastari in general.
Sentient, so called, ha!  They're beasts, and not even good, useful beasts like cows
or sheep.  I revel in squashing one. -- Warburton

Hex -- Must've been magic.  Or tourney fights.  I hate to think I'm so bad you could
do that without one or the other. -- Dawe Gonnit

Catnipit -- Wow, I'm not even a cat, and I could feel the seductive power of your
aroma.  Good thing I was able to finish the fight quickly, or there's no telling WHAT
might have happened. -- Fenris Khan
