                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail RIZTAB!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed for your 
deeds.  And let's see, AESARA fought TATUM and gained 14 points and contributed to 
DREAMERS' 3-2-0.  TATUM has lost to AESARA, falling 8 points, while helping make BLUE 
NOTE a 0-2-0 turn.  The attempts to dethrone the Duelmaster have failed, and HERMIAS 
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?   
     He who challenges well, fights well.  He who avoids without cause, shall lose 
for good reasons.  My mama told me that one.   
     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.  Always good to rest in RIZTAB, but never good to wear out my 
welcome.  Look for me in future turns.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets to 
paper-- Alarond the Scribe
