                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail TRANSEL!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed for your 
deeds.  And let's see, VIOLET fought CIMSON CARL and gained 19 points and contributed 
to RED BLADES' 1-4-0.  FOLIAGE has lost to ELVORA, falling 14 points, while helping 
make BALTO a 1-2-0 turn.  The attempts to dethrone the Duelmaster have failed, and 
CAMDEN 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 Sultan's 
Tent until they win.  Maybe?   
     He who challenges well, fights well.  He who avoids without cause, shall lose 
for good reasons.  My mama told me that one.   
     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.   
     Thought for the day, a new sword shines bright, but the notched sword sings the 
sweetest.  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

After the Tournament, Mu Thog's death will be avenged!

All -- Hello, I haven't really introduced myself here yet.  Just a little background
on the Tackle Box; this was a team I ran in Sibikhas 37 until it was condemned, and
they made me transfer it somewhere.  I sent them here and semi-retired them.  This
was around the same time I stopped playing for 10 years, and when I came back I had
to ask where they were! -- Buri

Not-a-nut -- Yes, I'm a strange one, definitely not your cookie-cutter TP.  Grats on
the invite! -- Sputterbuzz

Mu Thog -- Methinks I did the arena a favor. -- Flasher

Transel -- No one noticed that last turn was 6-666?  Not only that, but very soon we
will see a warrior numbered 6-6666! Is it a sign? -- Buri

     Could be interesting.

Camden -- (content deleted) -- Happy Harriet

Camden -- I know Harriet isn't happy with you, not right NOW, but you have done her a
favor when all is said and done.  And you've done the rest of us a much greater
favor. -- Not-A-Nut Jones for the Psycho Squad

Xenoria looks much better with her face cringed. -- Chas Cringer

Sputterbuzz -- You were unnerving.  If I'd been as wacko as the rest of the team, I
might have gone berserk. -- Not-A-Nut Jones

Orson Wells -- Oh... oh, sorry, I didn't mean to hit you THERE.  Um... maybe it was a
Martian? -- Faintly Frannie

Sous Ra Lous -- I hope I did the right thing, defeating you like that.  It SEEMED
right at the time, but... it's hard to be sure. -- Allen Angst

18 March 11
All -- Be aware of the comeback of the Cajun and his stables of gladiators!  Just
sayin' -- The Cajun
