                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, friends and fiends, welcome to your friendly neighborhood spyreport.  
I doubt KALTOS will ever be the same.  The WIZARD'S WRATH guild has had a 3-0-0 turn 
and deserves to be watched in the future.  You never know where this kind of thing 
can lead.  And let's see, KATIRONA MURH fought FRATSFA SLAVE and gained 16 points and 
contributed to THE MIDDLE WAY 5's 3-2-0.  KELLY has lost to GEN-13, falling 5 points, 
while helping make CASSEY'S CREW a 0-2-0 turn.  This turn BOMBETTE challenged 
APPRENTICE in what was KALTOS' Title bout.  And all eyes were on APPRENTICE this turn 
as he ascended to the throne of Duelmaster.  KALTOS has a new victor!  By the way, 
was that our Duelmaster that I saw last night, cramped under the table at The Victory 
Tavern?   
     I tell you, a green quarterstaff lasts longer than a seasoned sapling.  A basher 
friend of mine assures me this is true.  PAPER MARIO has cause to stand tall, as they 
were KALTOS' most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a team to beat.  And 
avoiding PAPER MARIO more than any other team we find WIZARD'S WRATH.  KALTOS, are we 
going to accept, or respect this sort of thing?  The most challenged warrior this 
turn was WIZARD'S WRATH's warrior APPRENTICE.  More fighters challenged him than 
challenged the Duelmaster!  SAVAGE DRAGON of IMAGE had better have a good reason for 
challenging down 8 points in a challenge which he won.  I thought SAVAGE DRAGON 
showed great skill and promise when he bested PENDRU ROST.  All right, so I slept 
through it!  Big deal!   
     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.   
     Remember, blood on the purple robe does not change it from a purple robe.  Dare 
to fight bravely.  Always good to rest in KALTOS, but never good to wear out my 
welcome.  Look for me in future turns.  Until you see my quill in KALTOS again, 
farewell-- Alarond the Scribe

Any and all who live in the 805 area, I would like for you to call me so we can get
together for BBQ's, softball games, and so on.  It has been a while since the last
get together (several years).  It was a blast and I am sure the next one will be
also.  We just have to do it.  All alliances are welcome.  Just because my warriors
leave your warrior beaten and bloody in defeat does not mean we can't have a beer or
five together.  I'll even buy the first round.  So call 805-588-3419 and ask for Dave
a.k.a. Misfit, former member of the Green and Purple Polka Dot Alliance (GAPPDA).
