                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail MALCORN!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed for your 
deeds.  And let's see, STEVE fought SWORDMAGE and gained 27 points and contributed to 
RAINBOW CONNECTION's 2-2-0.  SWORDMAGE has lost to STEVE, falling 25 points, while 
helping make DARK CREATION a 0-5-0 turn.  This turn AVERY Bloodfeuded QREATED in what 
was MALCORN's Title bout.  The attempts to dethrone the Duelmaster have failed, and 
AVERY remains MALCORN's top warrior for another turn.  By the way, was that our 
Duelmaster that I saw last night, cramped under the table at The Victory Tavern?   
     Oriental wise man once say, 'Hiding behind shields prevents proper sun tanning.' 
Inscrutable, but true.  TERMINUS has cause to stand tall, as they were MALCORN's most 
avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a team to beat.  And avoiding TERMINUS 
more than any other team we find DARK CREATION.  MALCORN, are we going to accept, or 
respect this sort of thing?  Well, sports fans, take notice that QREATED from DARK 
CREATION was MALCORN's most challenged warrior this turn.  In a brave attempt, MORGUE 
from TERMINUS challenged up 25 points to fight TERRASQUE from the DARK CREATION 
stable.  MORGUE perhaps got his just desserts, seeing as he bested TERRASQUE and 
ended up with 96 recognition points.   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  QREATED has departed MALCORN, leaving DARK CREATION without their 13-14-3 
warrior.  Question, just what was its team doing at the taverns last night?  
TERMINUS, with any luck DARK CREATION will successfully bloodfeud AVERY for killing 
such a warrior as QREATED.  Have a little decency, will ya?  Kudos go out to AVERY 
this turn, for revenging TERMINUS' bloodfeud against DARK CREATION's warrior QREATED. 
Well done.  The Victory Tavern declares a free round for STEVE and all of RAINBOW 
CONNECTION, for having revenged DARK CREATION's SWORDMAGE for killing one of their 
comrades.  A brave warrior does not carry a red shield, he has nothing to cover or 
hide when the fight is over.  Consider well.   
     Remember, blood on the purple robe does not change it from a purple robe.  Dare 
to fight bravely.  It's been nice chatting with you, until we meet again, keep your 
swords sharp and your hammers heavy.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets to 
paper-- Alarond the Scribe

Varick -- I see you were listening to what I said to Miyamoto.  Drat.  I was only
crowing over him, not advising you! -- Sourwood
P.S.  Good fight.

Avery -- You want the title?  Don't let me stop you! -- Stonebow, glad not to have to
come up with "a few words from the top"

In the Dark -- So are we all, but with a strong-scented flower like the honeysuckle
to orient on, you still know where you are. -- Honeysuckle

Steve -- You're easy prey for a stealthy ghost. -- Silver Ghost

Esrever -- At least I made you work for that win. -- Bobcat
P.S.  Though not as hard as you made me work for the loss.

Wow, Miyamoto and Jim both cut down in their experienced prime?  That's hard for a
manager to endure.  Hard for them, too, of course.  Condolences. -- Jorja

Our congratulations to Avery. -- Jorja and the Greenwardens

Terminus -- Ah... let me revise the response from last turn to:  When I can free up
some time.  Which was, of course, the problem before, also. -- the Scribe
