                                      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.  It seems the training can make the 
difference, as ABOMINATION is pushed out of top team by JAY-Z, who came from 2nd with 
a 4-0-0 this turn.  Now keep the taverns open late tonight, for there are sorrows to 
drown for ABOMINATION, whose 0-5-0 this turn dropped them by 4 into 5th.  The JAY-Z 
guild has had a 4-0-0 turn and deserves to be watched in the future.  You never know 
where this kind of thing can lead.  And let's see, SAUSAGE STUFFING fought MUZLYMB 
XTRMIST and gained 26 points and contributed to TURKEY DAY MASSACRE's 1-0-0.  MUZLYMB 
XTRMIST has lost to SAUSAGE STUFFING, falling 21 points, while helping make 
ABOMINATION a 0-5-0 turn.  The attempts to dethrone the Duelmaster have failed, and 
JIGGA remains KOLACT'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 Don Corleone's 
until they win.  Maybe?   
     I tell you, a green quarterstaff lasts longer than a seasoned sapling.  A basher 
friend of mine assures me this is true.  ABOMINATION 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 ABOMINATION stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was VIKINGS.  
Anyone surprised?  Well, sports fans, take notice that CERISA BRIGHT from THE 
MOONDOGS was KOLACT's most challenged warrior this turn.   
     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.  Well, I'm burning daylight here in KOLACT and I've a long road ahead of 
me.  Happy Trails.  Until you see my quill in KOLACT again, farewell-- Alarond the 
Scribe
