                                      SPY REPORT

     Busy, busy, busy, lots of things happening in MALCORN this turn, and let's start 
with a look at some of the teams.  It seems the training can make the difference, as 
DARK CREATION is pushed out of top team by GREENWARDENS, who came from 3rd with a 
3-2-1 this turn.  And let's see, THULE fought WIND RIDER and gained 24 points and 
contributed to DARK CREATION's 2-3-0.  STUMP has lost to LYLYANNA, falling 8 points, 
while helping make GREENWARDENS a 3-2-1 turn.  Defending his title for another turn, 
BET TWICE kept DARK CREATION's warrior, WENDIGO, from claiming the throne.  Tell me, 
is nothing sacred?  I have heard from unimpeachable sources that Drake's Barbecue 
uses trolls in their stew.  Talk about gristle!   
     He who challenges well, fights well.  He who avoids without cause, shall lose 
for good reasons.  My mama told me that one.  The most challenged warrior this turn 
was GREENWARDENS' warrior MOSSROCK.  More fighters challenged him than challenged the 
Duelmaster!   
     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.  Now it looks like LUTHERAX is gone, 
and forgotten too, now that DARK CREATION did not revenge GREENWARDENS' MOSSROCK for 
killing LUTHERAX.  Is it really true that MALCORN has more dishwashers per capita 
that fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...   
     I like this place, MALCORN, the taverns have old wine, and young serving girls.  
Who could ask for more?  Always good to rest in MALCORN, but never good to wear out 
my welcome.  Look for me in future turns.  Until you see my quill in MALCORN again, 
farewell-- Alarond the Scribe

Bet Twice -- I don't think so.  I seldom bet even once.  Good way to go broke. --
Redbird

Wendigo -- Ah, the old "untamed fury" bit.  Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't.
Talk about gambling, that there's one. -- Mossrock
P.S.  Might that weapon have been an input error?  Or, I suppose, the result of
losing a bet.  Tricky things, bets.

Simulacrum -- (crossly)  I see it all, what you're an imitation of is a successful
gladiator.  And (sigh) you're a successful imitation.  Drat. -- Wind Rider

Boss -- I knew a Bossie once.  She was a bit of a cow, but placid and contented.  Any
relation to you? -- Stump

Avengelina -- Dammit, woman, it was NOT ME.  How many times do I have to tell you
that you're avenging yourself on the wrong person? -- Thistledown

Wow, hard times at the Praetorian Guard!  Worse than a decimation.  I hope you did
well with your replacements. -- Jorja, Greenwardens

                                  LAST WEEK'S FIGHTS
