                                      SPY REPORT

     Busy, busy, busy, lots of things happening in JHELUM this turn, and let's start 
with a look at some of the teams.  THUNDERCATS stable has parlayed this turn's 3-2-0 
into a 3 space move up the rankings.  This brings them up to 4th place.  Good work, 
guys!  And let's see, ULTIMATE WRATH fought SUN TREE and gained 49 points and 
contributed to LUROCIANS Z2's 1-0-0.  GARDEN has lost to DRONE C2, falling 14 points, 
while helping make PEARL JAM a 0-3-0 turn.  Due to hers absence and inability to 
defend the throne, QUEEN OF COOL has lost the title of Duelmaster.  We should ask 
ULTIMATE WRATH about the thrill of victory, and what being the new Duelmaster does 
for a warrior, he's now the one to ask.  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.   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  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.   
     I like this place, JHELUM, the taverns have old wine, and young serving girls.  
Who could ask for more?  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

We've been incredible benefactors to this arena!  A loss by Raj Fenris to Drone C5
allowed said Drone to have a significant point gain.  Another loss, by Bran mac Morn,
to Beast Mode... oh, that was to our detriment, rather than Beast's gain.  Well,
Raj's loss was to our detriment, too, when you look at it that way.  And Bran got the
most challenges, not that it did HIM or us any good.  Still, it gave the spy reporter
something to talk about.  And then... we went oh-fer over all, which is NOT good for
us, but there it is.  None of the losses were to standbys, so I suppose it was good
for the arena in one way.  Ah, well, next year is another chance, right? -- Sun Tree
