                                      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, SUNRISE fought 
MORDANT DESERTER and gained 12 points and contributed to RED BLADES' 2-1-0.  WORBRIN 
has lost to DANGEROUS CRIMINAL, falling 15 points, while helping make REIGN a 4-1-0 
turn.  This turn CAMDEN Dark Arena Challenged KALTOS PRIVATEER in what was TRANSEL's 
Title bout.  The attempts to dethrone the Duelmaster have failed, and CAMDEN remains 
TRANSEL's top warrior for another turn.  Tell me, is nothing sacred?  I have heard 
from unimpeachable sources that The Victory Tavern uses trolls in their stew.  Talk 
about gristle!   
     Oriental wise man once say, 'Hiding behind shields prevents proper sun tanning.' 
Inscrutable, but true.  PSYCHO SQUAD has cause to stand tall, as they were TRANSEL's 
most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a team to beat.  And guess who 
avoided PSYCHO SQUAD stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was TACKLE BOX.  Anyone 
surprised?   
     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.  The grave that BALTO had dug for 
CAMDEN may yet be filled with the body of KALTOS PRIVATEER.  Seldom are the likes of 
this to be seen.  CAMDEN lives still!  Now it looks like AMY NESIA is gone, and 
forgotten too, now that PSYCHO SQUAD did not revenge BALTO's CAMDEN for killing AMY 
NESIA.  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.  Well, I'm burning daylight here in TRANSEL and I've a long road 
ahead of me.  Happy Trails.  Until you see my quill in TRANSEL again, farewell-- 
Alarond the Scribe
