                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail BONSUR!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed for your 
deeds.  CHURCH LADIES stable has parlayed this turn's 3-1-0 into a 3 space move up 
the rankings.  This brings them up to 3rd place.  Good work, guys!  The TOOL SHED 
guild has had a 3-1-0 turn and deserves to be watched in the future.  You never know 
where this kind of thing can lead.  And let's see, ATHELAS fought ARTIE AWL and 
gained 20 points and contributed to TOLBIN'S BP's 5-0-0.  CATHY has lost to CANNED 
SAVRADESE, falling 11 points, while helping make CHURCH LADIES a 3-1-0 turn.  The 
attempts to dethrone the Duelmaster have failed, and WOODCHIP WILLA remains BONSUR'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 Swinging Aardvark 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.  SOUND has cause to stand tall, as 
they were BONSUR's most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a team to beat.  
And guess who avoided SOUND stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was CHURCH 
LADIES.  Anyone surprised?  The most challenged warrior this turn was BEACH BABES' 
warrior SUMMER SUNNE.  More fighters challenged her than challenged the Duelmaster!  
Building dreams on hope, EVELYN challenged up 26 points this turn to take on WAVIN' 
WANDA from BEACH BABES stable.  And now nobody knows where WAVIN' WANDA is right now, 
after giving EVELYN 24 points worth of recognition.  As quiet chuckles rise behind 
me.  In a fit of brilliance or of stupidity (hard to say sometimes), SHIRLEY 
challenged SUMMER SUNNE today, facing a 31 difference in recognition.  And whaddya 
know, SHIRLEY beat SUMMER SUNNE, and the fighters of CHURCH LADIES were last seen 
lifting frothy pints of ale in honor of SHIRLEY's 27 point gain.   
     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 BONSUR 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
