                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail TRANSEL!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed for your 
deeds.  It seems the training can make the difference, as SOUL STRIPPERS II is pushed 
out of top team by REIGN, who came from 2nd with a 1-1-0 this turn.  The BLACK AND 
BLUES guild has had a 3-1-0 turn and deserves to be watched in the future.  You never 
know where this kind of thing can lead.  And let's see, BASHFUL BENNIE fought 
CAPTURED ORC and gained 18 points and contributed to PSYCHO SQUAD's 4-1-0.  FRIAR 
LUCK has lost to TOTALLY TILLY, falling 9 points, while helping make SOUL STRIPPERS 
II a 1-4-0 turn.  The attempts to dethrone the Duelmaster have failed, and JOE 
WILLIAMS remains TRANSEL's top warrior for another turn.  By the way, was that our 
Duelmaster that I saw last night, cramped under the table at The Victory Tavern?   
     He who challenges well, fights well.  He who avoids without cause, shall lose 
for good reasons.  My mama told me that one.  I also notice that the SOUL STRIPPERS 
II stable was the most avoided team this turn.  Come on TRANSEL, what are you afraid 
of?  And guess who avoided SOUL STRIPPERS II stable the most?  Believe it or not, it 
was TACKLE BOX.  Anyone surprised?  Well, sports fans, take notice that PLAINSMAN 
from SOUL STRIPPERS II was TRANSEL's most challenged warrior this turn.   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  A brave warrior does not carry a red shield, he has nothing to cover or 
hide when the fight is over.  Consider well.   
     I like this place, TRANSEL, the taverns have old wine, and young serving girls.  
Who could ask for more?  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

Savory Jack (or is it Saucy?  I've seen you sign personals both ways.) -- Got your
diplo.  Not a problem.  Death happens.  I considered making the replacement a whiner,
but that just doesn't seem to work for me.  They end up aggressive anyway. -- Jorja

Plainsman -- I don't know why the stewards called your victory "unbelievable."
I'd've called it a sure thing.  And I resent it. -- (not) Sweet Freddy

Joe Williams -- Oh... oh, dear.  That's probably a good thing.  I was... there was...
too much blood when I was duelmaster. -- Faintly Frannie

Sonny Boy II -- Well, you know, I don't want to have tea with you.  Nothing personal,
except, well, you're not my kind. -- Bashful Bennie
