                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail TRANSEL!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed for your 
deeds.  The attempts to dethrone the Duelmaster have failed, and DOVAHKIIN 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!   
     He who challenges well, fights well.  He who avoids without cause, shall lose 
for good reasons.  My mama told me that one.  BLACK AND BLUES 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 BLACK AND BLUES stable the most?  Believe it or not, 
it was LIKE IT!.  Anyone surprised?  The most challenged warrior this turn was MEDAL 
OF HONOR Y2's warrior PRIVATE 2.  More fighters challenged him than challenged the 
Duelmaster!  MONEY of LIKE IT! had better have a good reason for challenging down 12 
points in a challenge which it lost.  I thought MONEY showed great skill and promise 
when it lost to R.L..  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     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 Victory Tavern declares a free 
round for ALICE AIN'T HERE and all of PSYCHO SQUAD, for having revenged BLACK AND 
BLUES' BLIND BLAKE for killing one of their comrades.  Is it really true that TRANSEL 
has more dishwashers per capita that fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...   
     I like this place, TRANSEL, the taverns have old wine, and young serving girls.  
Who could ask for more?  It's been nice chatting with you, until we meet again, keep 
your swords sharp and your hammers heavy.  Until you see my quill in TRANSEL again, 
farewell-- Alarond the Scribe

Two-three and a death.  I can see this Blind Blake dude is getting dangerous.  Not
that Doophus is a great loss, but he was OUR moron. -- Not-a-Nut Jones

I see that Jones isn't going to mention it, he's eaten up with jealous, but *I*, the
Son of John, defeated that long-standing thorn in our side, Big Bill Broonzy.  That

counts for something and probably contributes to me being the popularity leader here.
The fans love me, as well they should, because if I catch any of them disrespecting
me, I will kill them in an alley. -- Son of John

     The Fall Mail-In Tourney is DUE on the 30th of October and will run on November
