                                      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, DOOPHUS fought 
PERSISTENT BEGGAR and gained 9 points and contributed to PSYCHO SQUAD's 2-3-1.  
ROBERT JOHNSON has lost to XENORIA, falling 11 points, while helping make BLACK AND 
BLUES a 3-2-0 turn.  This week's Duelmaster bout was between LIZZIE BROADAXE and our 
Duelmaster JOE WILLIAMS, making a challenge.  The attempts to dethrone the Duelmaster 
have failed, and JOE WILLIAMS 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.  Well, sports fans, take notice that 
LIZZIE BROADAXE from PSYCHO SQUAD was TRANSEL's most challenged warrior this turn.   
     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.  A brave warrior does not carry a 
red shield, he has nothing to cover or hide when the fight is over.  Consider well.   
     Thought for the day, a new sword shines bright, but the notched sword sings the 
sweetest.  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
