                                      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, TOM TIGER fought 
ELMORE JAMES and gained 8 points and contributed to PSYCHO SQUAD's 2-3-0.  ALICE 
AIN'T HERE has lost to ROBERT JOHNSON, falling 4 points, while helping make PSYCHO 
SQUAD a 2-3-0 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 Victory 
Tavern 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.   
     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.  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 the sun next rises and my pen sets to paper-- 
Alarond the Scribe

One-Four?  We went ONE-FOUR?  Somehow, I'm not totally surprised, but that it was
SHIRLEY KNOTT who got the victory?  I don't know if the team can STAND having HIM
swanking around. -- Not-A-Nut Jones, for the Psycho Squad
