                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, in TRANSEL a quiet thief gets rich, but a quiet spymaster gets poor.  
So bring me ale and harken to my tidbits of news.  And let's see, OKEANOS fought 
UPPER DECK and gained 22 points and contributed to KREWE OF DRUID's 2-3-0.  OL SMOKEY 
has lost to GRUNT 31, falling 16 points, while helping make THE VOLS a 2-3-0 turn.  
JUGGERNAUT challenged for the Duelmastership this turn, attempting to dethrone THE 
VOLS' warrior.  Defending his title for another turn, GEN. JACKSON kept MACHINES OF 
WAR's warrior, JUGGERNAUT, from claiming the throne.  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.  Well, sports fans, take notice that HOFFA 
from THE LADY'S LIST was TRANSEL's most challenged warrior this turn.  LEGIONNAIRE of 
MACHINES OF WAR had better have a good reason for challenging down 14 points in a 
challenge which he won.  I thought LEGIONNAIRE showed great skill and promise when he 
defeated HOFFA.  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.  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.  Always good to rest in TRANSEL, 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
