                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, friends and fiends, welcome to your friendly neighborhood spyreport.  
I doubt KOLACT will ever be the same.  It seems the training can make the difference, 
as FEARSOME FIVESOME is pushed out of top team by JAY-Z, who came from 2nd with a 
2-2-0 this turn.  THE MOONDOGS stable has parlayed this turn's 3-2-0 into a 3 space 
move up the rankings.  This brings them up to 2nd place.  Good work, guys!  The 
ABOMINATION 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, H TO THE IZZO fought 
COUPLES and gained 22 points and contributed to JAY-Z's 2-2-0.  CIRIC has lost to EL 
PRESIDENTE, falling 21 points, while helping make VIKINGS a 0-2-0 turn.  Well done, 
KOLACT, the Duelmaster was this turn's most challenged warrior.  Perhaps SKYHAWK is 
not as thrilled, being challenged 3 times.  This turn SKYHAWK challenged MUGSY in 
what was KOLACT's Title bout.  We should ask MUGSY 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!   
     Oriental wise man once say, 'Hiding behind shields prevents proper sun tanning.' 
Inscrutable, but true.  I also notice that the FEARSOME FIVESOME stable was the most 
avoided team this turn.  Come on KOLACT, what are you afraid of?  And avoiding 
FEARSOME FIVESOME more than any other team we find THE CLUB.  KOLACT, are we going to 
accept, or respect this sort of thing?  In a brave attempt, CLYDE from THE CLUB 
challenged up 24 points to fight SHAWN CARTER from the JAY-Z stable.  CLYDE perhaps 
got his just desserts, seeing as he bested SHAWN CARTER and ended up with 101 
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.  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 the sun next rises and my pen sets to paper-- 
Alarond the Scribe
