                                      SPY REPORT

     Busy, busy, busy, lots of things happening in DULLENS this turn, and let's start 
with a look at some of the teams.  And let's see, BLIND OWL fought TOODLES ENSLAVED! 
and gained 7 points and contributed to CARDOW HUNTERS' 3-2-0.  LAME OX has lost to 
TEX IMPERSONATOR, falling 3 points, while helping make CARDOW HUNTERS a 3-2-0 turn.  
Defending its title for another turn, FRANKIE kept 7TH SANCTUM's warrior, PARAGON 
ORCA, from claiming the throne.  Can someone confirm a rumor for me?  I hear the top 
team makes their losing fighters do dishes at Arthur's Last Stand until they win.  
Maybe?   
     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 DULLENS, 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

Shierrah!  I have to stop complaining about the number of fights.  We went from six
fights here, to five.  I lost to Frankie, of course, and the Redknife to my old
friend the Paragon Orca.  Everyone else on our team defeated standbys.  I suppose
that's... well, sort of good.  Even Lame Ox redeemed his earlier loss by defeating
the Teddy Bear of Death this time.  Good for him, but he's still a lame gladiator. --
