                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, warriors of ARKERS!  Once again I've been called out of retirement 
for my abilities and insights into Spyreporting.  What's with EVLYN?  She actually 
beat STAR HUNTER's CRUSHER, and walked away with 16 more points from the fight.  
Major screwup at MIDDLE WAY 11.  IMERTA LOEL lost 8 points to PENNY.  Some new 
strategies, perhaps?  Maybe IMERTA LOEL will provide more easy wins...  ARKERS, set 
your sights on VETERAN MERCENARY.  He'll be happy to entertain all requests after 
defeating AKANAH.  PENNY looked pretty Duelmasterlike as she took ARKERS' top spot 
with 63 points.  Now, what will AKANAH do?  Advice to fighters with a 1 will--give up 
fighting!   
     Speaking of cowardly avoiders and unfair challenges...   
     Warriors of ARKERS unite.  You have only your games to lose!  Here's some 
advice:  study your opponent, master many skills, fight dirty.   
     Who knows what the future holds for a warrior.  More fights, there's no doubt.  
The end of another Spyreport!  That's cause for celebration in my book!  I don't want 
to overstay my welcome...-- Olaf Modeen

Strange Universe -- Our sincerest apologies for the death of Yaka.  Killing isn't
really our manager's thing and he tends to frown upon it when we get a little over-
zealous on the sands. -- Kazandra Kruel

Strange Universe manager -- As Kazandra has already said, we do apologize for the
death of Yaka.  Sadly, Kazandra will only be available next turn for the blood feud
and then must wait for tournament time before she fights again.  I apologize for that
inconvenience as well, but I do hope that you understand. -- Master Darque, manager
of Trial By Combat

Shield Wall -- Not very exciting in terms of fighting, but someone has to fill in the
gaps to make it a full day at the arena. -- Typhoid Mary

All -- I should be done with tourney prep after this turn.  I'll be back sometime
later. -- Master Darque

Noble Assassin.  Every time I hear that title, I want to spit. -- Norm Quesha

Ima Slayer -- I hope not! -- Kotter Nahl

And two more standbys eat sand.  Good. -- Imerta Loel and Leland Olven
