                                      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 MEDAL OF HONOR Y2 is pushed 
out of top team by BLACK AND BLUES, who came from 2nd with a 2-2-0 this turn.  And 
let's see, IAN KNOTTINGHAM fought STEEL KISS and gained 21 points and contributed to 
KHORS PRAETORIANS I's 1-0-0.  STEEL FURY has lost to PETER PUSSYCAT, falling 9 
points, while helping make INK & STEEL FOREVER a 0-5-0 turn.  This turn JUGGERNAUT 
Dark Arena Challenged VAREN D'KENSIS in what was TRANSEL's Title bout.  The crowds 
were amazed this turn, as VAREN D'KENSIS killed the Duelmaster, JUGGERNAUT, leaving 
MACHINES OF WAR in mourning.  This incredible death has allowed, I might add, BIG 
BILL BROONZY from BLACK AND BLUES to ascend to the throne of Duelmaster, and I hear 
DARK ARENA is not happy.  Tell me, is nothing sacred?  I have heard from 
unimpeachable sources that The Sultan's Tent 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.  Well, sports fans, take notice that 
ALICE AIN'T HERE 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.  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.  Always good to rest in TRANSEL, but never good to wear out my 
welcome.  Look for me in future turns.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets to 
paper-- Alarond the Scribe
