                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, friends and fiends, welcome to your friendly neighborhood spyreport.  
I doubt TRANSEL will ever be the same.  It seems the training can make the 
difference, as HOLIDAY HORRORS is pushed out of top team by THE LADY'S LIST, who came 
from 2nd with a 3-2-0 this turn.  And let's see, THE APRIL FOOL fought AKBAR and 
gained 10 points and contributed to HOLIDAY HORRORS' 1-1-0.  AKBAR has lost to THE 
APRIL FOOL, falling 6 points, while helping make THE LADY'S LIST a 3-2-0 turn.  The 
attempts to dethrone the Duelmaster have failed, and AHMED remains TRANSEL's top 
warrior for another turn.  Can someone confirm a rumor for me?  I hear the top team 
makes their losing fighters do dishes at The Victory Tavern until they win.  Maybe?   
     Oriental wise man once say, 'Hiding behind shields prevents proper sun tanning.' 
Inscrutable, but true.  I also notice that the HOLIDAY HORRORS stable was the most 
avoided team this turn.  Come on TRANSEL, what are you afraid of?  And guess who 
avoided HOLIDAY HORRORS stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was HOLIDAY HORRORS.  
Anyone surprised?  Well, sports fans, take notice that JUSTIN from THE LADY'S LIST 
was TRANSEL's most challenged warrior this turn.   
     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.  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.  It's been nice chatting with you, until we meet again, keep your 
swords sharp and your hammers heavy.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets to 
paper-- Alarond the Scribe

ATTENTION ALL YOU ALLIANCE-TYPE PEOPLE:
For the purposes of tourney newsletter alliance listings (when I am able to do them),
you may only be listed in ONE alliance.  In other words, you have to choose!  If you
are a part of Englebert's Alliance and Englebert's Alliance is "part" of Ruthrauf's
Alliance, I will list you EITHER as part of Englebert's Alliance OR as part of
Ruthrauf's Alliance, NOT both.  The default would be the top-level alliance,
Ruthrauf's, in this example.  If you'd rather be listed separately, let me know and I
will do so, but that will be the only listing you get. -- The Saint, keeper of ever-
more-complicated lists

The Company of Brothers (TCB) welcomes two new members to our alliance...Liam the
Goth and Buddy Lee.  We have no doubt that they will prove to be assets to our
alliance and the general dueling community. -- Baphomet, co-founder, T.C.B.
