                                      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 DOGS OF WAR is pushed out 
of top team by PEARL JAM, who came from 2nd with a 2-3-0 this turn.  And let's see, 
COTTONBALL fought LEON FROM NAPA and gained 18 points and contributed to THE BAD 
BUNNIES' 3-1-0.  LEON FROM NAPA has lost to COTTONBALL, falling 8 points, while 
helping make DOGS OF WAR a 1-4-0 turn.  And not without some honor, RABID RABBIT now 
claims the title and throne of Duelmaster of JHELUM.  By the way, was that our 
Duelmaster that I saw last night, cramped under the table at The Dripping Blade?   
     He who challenges well, fights well.  He who avoids without cause, shall lose 
for good reasons.  My mama told me that one.  The most challenged warrior this turn 
was PEARL JAM's warrior MIKE MCCREADY.  More fighters challenged him than challenged 
the Duelmaster!  I don't know about you, but SPIRIT IN THE SKY challenging down 18 
points to PEARL JAM's MIKE MCCREADY, is not really worthy of ONE HIT WONDERS.  I 
thought challenges were for warriors, not cowards looking for easy wins.  SPIRIT IN 
THE SKY defeated MIKE MCCREADY, is nothing sacred?   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  COLLEGE RADIO #4 has some questions to answer.  Like 'why did you 
kill your fighter, TUSK, who had a record of 7-1-1?' A farewell moment, if you 
please, BAR BUNNY of THE BAD BUNNIES has been sent to the Dark Arena, and was carried 
out on hers shield.  This is not good to see.  Why pray tell has DENUNZIO been sent 
to the Dark Arena by COLLEGE RADIO #4?  And why with a 2-0-1 record??  Is it really 
true that JHELUM 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 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

Hmm, we're Top Team on the Move.  Does that mean we're moving AWAY?  The far (warm)
south appeals. -- the Dogs of War

Elderly Woman -- I don't CARE if you have a style advantage, that was incredibly
embarrassing.  Why couldn't you be a young, shapely woman? -- Bunker Bill
P.S.  But I do thank you for the skills, and, yes, I will remember to wash behind my
ears.

Eddie Vedder -- Take that, you... consorter with elderly women! -- Bran Mac Morn
P.S.  That doesn't sound quite as scornful as I meant it to be, but I guess I'm stuck
with it.

Spirit in the Sky -- I did my best to give you the loss you so clearly needed, but
you just wouldn't LISTEN.  So go your way with your still-unbalanced record. -- Sun
Tree

And a pair of wimpy standbys.  Good, we like that. -- Raj Fenris and Leon from Napa
