                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, in KOLACT a quiet thief gets rich, but a quiet spymaster gets poor.  
So bring me ale and harken to my tidbits of news.  THE MOONDOGS stable has parlayed 
this turn's 3-1-0 into a 3 space move up the rankings.  This brings them up to 2nd 
place.  Good work, guys!  FLYLEAF has lost to CENSORSHIP, falling 11 points, while 
helping make POSITIVE ALTERNATIVE a 0-1-0 turn.  HATCHET MAN challenged for the 
Duelmastership this turn, attempting to dethrone ABOMINATION's warrior.  We should 
ask HATCHET MAN about the thrill of victory, and what being the new Duelmaster does 
for a warrior, he's now the one to ask.  Tell me, is nothing sacred?  I have heard 
from unimpeachable sources that Don Corleone's 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.  BACON MAKIN' has cause to stand tall, 
as they were KOLACT's most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a team to 
beat.  And guess who avoided BACON MAKIN' stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was 
GLORY HOUNDS.  Anyone surprised?  The most challenged warrior this turn was TOONS O 
DOOM's warrior TOM.  More fighters challenged him than challenged the Duelmaster!  
Building dreams on hope, THE DUELLIST challenged up 28 points this turn to take on 
FLATLINERS from BACON MAKIN' stable.  Sad to say, THE DUELLIST lost to FLATLINERS, 
and the attempt ended up costing THE DUELLIST 1 recognition points.  In a brave 
attempt, CAPRICA from ABOMINATION challenged up 19 points to fight TOM from the TOONS 
O DOOM stable.  CAPRICA perhaps got his just desserts, seeing as he won victory over 
TOM and ended up with 48 recognition points.   
     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.  Don Corleone's declares a free 
round for LIA HOBERN and all of THE MOONDOGS, for having revenged GLORY HOUNDS' 
HAMMER for killing one of their comrades.  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.   
     Thought for the day, a new sword shines bright, but the notched sword sings the 
sweetest.  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 KOLACT again, farewell-- 
Alarond the Scribe

Wizards! -- Oh, no!  How abominable of you!  I was hoping for the Hatchet Man. -- Lia

Tremors -- Kinda shaky there, aren't you?  That's why I knocked you down, it was a
philanthropic act to get you where you wouldn't fall by accident. -- Lunelle Merrin

Footloose -- Maybe cotter pins would help? -- Cresdene Arct

Hammer -- Ouch.  You definitely hammered me. -- Ghost of Simoon Terrat
