                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, friends and fiends, welcome to your friendly neighborhood spyreport.  
I doubt DULLENS will ever be the same.  On their very first turn, 7TH SANCTUM had a 
2-1-0, and with this kind of luck or skill, should do well.  Welcome to DULLENS.  And 
let's see, STARSINGER fought EVIL SPARKY and gained 15 points and contributed to 
CARDOW HUNTERS' 3-2-0.  EVIL SPARKY has lost to STARSINGER, falling 10 points, while 
helping make ARCANE ROYALTY a 2-3-0 turn.  Defending its title for another turn, 
SHOCK TOP kept DULLENS' warrior, MEGAMANAGER (NOT), from claiming the throne.  By the 
way, was that our Duelmaster that I saw last night, cramped under the table at The 
Sleepy Smithy?   
     I tell you, a green quarterstaff lasts longer than a seasoned sapling.  A basher 
friend of mine assures me this is true.  The most challenged warrior this turn was 
MMM BEER!'s warrior TOXIC SLUDGE.  More fighters challenged it than challenged the 
Duelmaster!  In a brave attempt, JA-HEE from ARCANE ROYALTY challenged up 18 points 
to fight TOXIC SLUDGE from the MMM BEER! stable.  JA-HEE perhaps got his just 
desserts, seeing as he was defeated by TOXIC SLUDGE and ended up with 58 recognition 
points.   
     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.  Well, I'm burning daylight here in DULLENS 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

Two-three.  Not impressive, but we suppose it could be worse.  Probably WOULD have
been worse, if it hadn't been for our new member facing a standby.  Ah, well. -- the
