                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail RIZTAB!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed for your 
deeds.  It seems the training can make the difference, as DREAMERS is pushed out of 
top team by SWEET MAGIC, who came from 2nd with a 3-2-0 this turn.  And let's see, 
PHILOLAUS fought CORIANELLE and gained 11 points and contributed to DREAMERS' 2-0-1.  
CORIANELLE has lost to PHILOLAUS, falling 9 points, while helping make SWEET MAGIC a 
3-2-0 turn.  This turn PYTHAGORAS Dark Arena Challenged TILKIRRIN THE ELF in what was 
RIZTAB's Title bout.  The attempts to dethrone the Duelmaster have failed, and 
PYTHAGORAS remains RIZTAB's top warrior for another turn.  By the way, was that our 
Duelmaster that I saw last night, cramped under the table at The Warty Toad?   
     The crowd's roar, the smell of iron and leather, mixed with sweat, what more 
could a warrior ask of life?  Well, besides that.   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  PYTHAGORAS must have surprised DREAMERS this turn, after they sent 
him to the Dark Arena, but the Dark Arena couldn't hold him!  A brave warrior does 
not carry a red shield, he has nothing to cover or hide when the fight is over.  
Consider well.   
     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 RIZTAB and I've a long road 
ahead of me.  Happy Trails.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets to paper-- 
Alarond the Scribe

Pythagoras -- I was going to chide you, gently, for hanging onto the title even
though this is my graduation fight, but then I thought, why should you lose just
because I've been around long enough to graduate?  So here's the deal, I'm making a
feast in celebration, starting with gyros (I don't do appetizers, you have to bring
your own appetite) and ending with baklava.  Come and pig out!  After all, it's your
graduation, too. -- Corianelle

Devar the Traitor -- I offer you, creep, special almond paste candies.  They're made
with bitter almond essence and very rare. -- Carlotta

Bolgar the Foolish -- Foolish indeed if you think I'm going to throw my good cooking
into that bottomless pit you call a stomach. -- Kissa Belle

Leovar the Proud -- It goeth before a fall, and you fell hard. -- Dora Bell

Marmaduke the Broke -- Listen, I'm not running a charity kitchen here.  You want to
eat, you pay. -- Tinakarina

Our congratulations to Pythagoras. -- Jorja and the Sweet Magic crew
