                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail RIZTAB!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed for your 
deeds.  PROCLUS challenged for the Duelmastership this turn, attempting to dethrone 
KAOS FROGS' warrior.  The attempts to dethrone the Duelmaster have failed, and MUD 
MUD FROG remains RIZTAB's top warrior for another turn.  Tell me, is nothing sacred?  
I have heard from unimpeachable sources that The Welcome Wench uses trolls in their 
stew.  Talk about gristle!   
     I tell you, a green quarterstaff lasts longer than a seasoned sapling.  A basher 
friend of mine assures me this is true.  I also notice that the BLUE NOTE stable was 
the most avoided team this turn.  Come on RIZTAB, what are you afraid of?  And guess 
who avoided BLUE NOTE stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was TORTURED.  Anyone 
surprised?  The most challenged warrior this turn was SWEET MAGIC's warrior TAFFY.  
More fighters challenged her than challenged the Duelmaster!  In a brave attempt, 
SKELETON from THE UNDEAD challenged up 19 points to fight HELIODORUS from the 
DREAMERS stable.  SKELETON perhaps got his just desserts, seeing as he overcame 
HELIODORUS and ended up with 101 recognition points.  MARTYR of TORTURED had better 
have a good reason for challenging down 9 points in a challenge which he won.  I 
thought MARTYR showed great skill and promise when he defeated JOY OF LOSING.  All 
right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  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.   
     I like this place, RIZTAB, the taverns have old wine, and young serving girls.  
Who could ask for more?  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
