                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail RIZTAB!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed for your 
deeds.  Now keep the taverns open late tonight, for there are sorrows to drown for 
KAOS FROGS, whose 0-0-0 this turn dropped them by 4 into 7th.  FANTASTIC FIVE II 
stable has parlayed this turn's 3-1-0 into a 5 space move up the rankings.  This 
brings them up to 3rd place.  Good work, guys!  And let's see, BOP fought NECRO-MAN 
CY and gained 20 points and contributed to BLUE NOTE's 3-2-0.  NECRO-MAN CY has lost 
to BOP, falling 15 points, while helping make WHO DA MAN? a 2-3-0 turn.  And all eyes 
were on JOY OF LOSING this turn as he ascended to the throne of Duelmaster.  RIZTAB 
has a new victor!  Tell me, is nothing sacred?  I have heard from unimpeachable 
sources that The Swinging Aardvark 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 FANTASTIC FIVE II stable was the most 
avoided team this turn.  Come on RIZTAB, what are you afraid of?  And avoiding 
FANTASTIC FIVE II more than any other team we find PURE POISON.  RIZTAB, are we going 
to accept, or respect this sort of thing?  The most challenged warrior this turn was 
SWEET MAGIC's warrior CHARLENE.  More fighters challenged her than challenged the 
Duelmaster!  I don't know about you, but INCREDIBLE HULK challenging down 21 points 
to SWEET MAGIC's CHARLENE, is not really worthy of FANTASTIC FIVE II.  It pains me to 
see warriors take advantage of the system like this.  INCREDIBLE HULK overcame 
CHARLENE, as if it surprises anyone.   
     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.  Is it really true that RIZTAB has 
more dishwashers per capita that fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...   
     I like this place, RIZTAB, the taverns have old wine, and young serving girls.  
Who could ask for more?  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
