                                      SPY REPORT

     Busy, busy, busy, lots of things happening in TRANSEL this turn, and let's start 
with a look at some of the teams.  And let's see, MOTH fought BUMBLE-FINGERS and 
gained 13 points and contributed to WINGED LEGION's 4-1-0.  SATCHEL has lost to HAWK, 
falling 6 points, while helping make THE LADY'S LIST a 2-3-0 turn.  HOMOCULOUS 
challenged for the Duelmastership this turn, attempting to dethrone THE LADY'S LIST's 
warrior.  We should ask HOMOCULOUS about the thrill of victory, and what being the 
new Duelmaster does for a warrior, he's now the one to ask.  Tell me, is nothing 
sacred?  I have heard from unimpeachable sources that The Victory Tavern uses trolls 
in their stew.  Talk about gristle!   
     The crowd's roar, the smell of iron and leather, mixed with sweat, what more 
could a warrior ask of life?  Well, besides that.  Well, sports fans, take notice 
that JUSTIN from THE LADY'S LIST was TRANSEL's most challenged warrior this turn.  
Tsk, tsk, tsk.  AGNAR, does your manager know you're challenging down 18 points to 
fight ROC from WINGED LEGION?  Well, surprise, surprise, AGNAR lost to ROC, and by 
the way, AGNAR now has a recognition score of 7.   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  The Victory Tavern declares a free round for HOMOCULOUS and all of 
DARK PANTHEON, for having revenged THE LADY'S LIST's MIKEL for killing one of their 
comrades.  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
