                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail DULLENS!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed for your 
deeds.  And let's see, THE LIBRARIAN fought MIST ON GRASS and gained 7 points and 
contributed to ARCANE ROYALTY's 2-1-0.  MIST ON GRASS has lost to THE LIBRARIAN, 
falling 3 points, while helping make CARDOW HUNTERS a 2-3-0 turn.  And not without 
some honor, ADELITA now claims the title and throne of Duelmaster of DULLENS.  Tell 
me, is nothing sacred?  I have heard from unimpeachable sources that Arthur's Last 
Stand 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.   
     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.  A brave warrior does not carry a 
red shield, he has nothing to cover or hide when the fight is over.  Consider well.   
     Thought for the day, a new sword shines bright, but the notched sword sings the 
sweetest.  It's been nice chatting with you, until we meet again, keep your swords 
sharp and your hammers heavy.  Until you see my quill in DULLENS again, farewell-- 
Alarond the Scribe

We went five-oh?  That's very strange, but not unpleasing.  We salute all those who
had the good will or ill luck to lose in our fights.  Every day is different, despite
some arguments to the contrary, and who knows what will happen next? -- Goldeneye for
