                                      SPY REPORT

     Busy, busy, busy, lots of things happening in TRANSEL this turn, and let's start 
with a look at some of the teams.  And let's see, SHIRLEY KNOTT fought BIG BILL 
BROONZY and gained 19 points and contributed to PSYCHO SQUAD's 1-4-0.  BIG BILL 
BROONZY has lost to SHIRLEY KNOTT, falling 10 points, while helping make BLACK AND 
BLUES a 3-2-0 turn.  Defending his title for another turn, JOE WILLIAMS kept PSYCHO 
SQUAD's warrior, SON OF JOHN, from claiming the throne.  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?   
     The crowd's roar, the smell of iron and leather, mixed with sweat, what more 
could a warrior ask of life?  Well, besides that.   
     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.  Always good to rest in TRANSEL, but never good to wear out my welcome.  
Look for me in future turns.  Until you see my quill in TRANSEL again, farewell-- 
Alarond the Scribe

Same old stuff for us.  We defeat the standbys and lose to the managed gladiators.  I
guess that shows our position between the two, doesn't it?  Standbys you can
challenge.  Pah.  If I were that way inclined, I'd be depressed.  As it is, I don't
"do" depression. -- Not-a-Nut Jones, for the Psycho Squad, some of who "do"
depression, and the rest of whom "do" baffled fury
