                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail ARKERS!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed for your 
deeds.  The PEASANT REBELLION guild has had a 4-1-0 turn and deserves to be watched 
in the future.  You never know where this kind of thing can lead.  And let's see, 
PITCHFORK KID fought MAYFLOWER and gained 23 points and contributed to PEASANT 
REBELLION's 4-1-0.  KOTTER NAHL has lost to FIELDER, falling 14 points, while helping 
make MIDDLE WAY 11 a 0-4-0 turn.  Well done, ARKERS, the Duelmaster was this turn's 
most challenged warrior.  Perhaps IMA SLAYER is not as thrilled, being challenged 2 
times.  PORT-A-FORTRESS challenged for the Duelmastership this turn, attempting to 
dethrone YOU PAY I SLAY's warrior.  The attempts to dethrone the Duelmaster have 
failed, and IMA SLAYER remains ARKERS' top warrior for another turn.  By the way, was 
that our Duelmaster that I saw last night, cramped under the table at The Welcome 
Wench?   
     The crowd's roar, the smell of iron and leather, mixed with sweat, what more 
could a warrior ask of life?  Well, besides that.  I also notice that the STAR HUNTER 
stable was the most avoided team this turn.  Come on ARKERS, what are you afraid of?  
And guess who avoided STAR HUNTER stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was PEASANT 
REBELLION.  Anyone surprised?  Tsk, tsk, tsk.  HAROLD OF DUME, does your manager know 
you're challenging down 18 points to fight MAX MURDERER from YOU PAY I SLAY?  We're 
not surprised to hear that HAROLD OF DUME overcame MAX MURDERER, but I bet it would 
be interesting to hear why STEEL PROPHETS made such a challenge.  In a brave attempt, 
RIA THE CARESSER from THE CHOSEN challenged up 20 points to fight ORVILLE ROUSE from 
the MIDDLE WAY 11 stable.  RIA THE CARESSER perhaps got hers just desserts, seeing as 
she bested ORVILLE ROUSE and ended up with 19 recognition points.  DINGO MCGEE of 
STEEL PROPHETS had better have a good reason for challenging down 12 points in a 
challenge which he won.  I thought DINGO MCGEE showed great skill and promise when he 
overcame TORCHBEARER TOM.  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.  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 ARKERS and I've a long road 
ahead of me.  Happy Trails.  Until you see my quill in ARKERS again, farewell-- 
Alarond the Scribe

Greetings, all.  We have been gone a while on a long journey.  I return with my full
team:  Yosemite, Pylmouth Rock, Mayflower, Alamo and Iwo Jima.  Stop on over to our
newly refurnished guild house for a drink and reaquaintance. -- Curator (Consortium
affiliated)

Dingo -- Yes, I have some regards of the fight.  I learn that you are very good at
using your warriors.  That you are better than me, one day I will win. -- Crusher
P.S.  Win.

Blue Flak -- I like to keep the illusion that their little girl is innocent and
sweet. -- Ocean Size

Orville Rouse -- I didn't expect to win that one.  Seriously, it was a shot in the
dark. -- Ocean Size

Crusher -- And that was the straw that broke the camel's back. -- Shikari

Penny -- As I said, You Pay, I win. -- Port-A-Fortress

Leland Olven -- No...seriously... This is f*@&ing ridiculous!  I am sick of fighting
the Middle Way!  Ever since I have been in this arena, I have fought a member of your
stable.  If I fight another member of your stable, I am going to scream! -- Lionik

Silent One -- I always knew you were Dumed. -- Ocean Size

Pain Magnet -- Get away from me, you masochistic freak. -- Ria

Fourteen inactive Initiates?  Is this the tourney out-fall?

Shield -- If I keep losing to you, I won't be able to follow you to the top. --
Orville Rouse

Lionik -- Some people take a lot of waking up. -- Imerta Loel
P.S.  I wasn't aiming at your forehead, but you kept raising your arm and waving to
the crowd, and I *was* aiming at your arm....

Ocean Size -- Too big for me.  Shield Wall would suit me better. -- Orville Rouse
P.S.  Especially if I could WIN for a change.

Ima Slayer -- Not so for, for which I am thankful. -- Kotter Nahl

Lionik -- Wow, I made a "brilliant and masterful parry"!  Too bad it was only the
one. -- Leland Olven

Shield Wall -- Think of me as a battering ram. -- Imerta Loel
