                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail MALCORN!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed for your 
deeds.  And let's see, LEAFLOCK fought MORDANT DESERTER and gained 13 points and 
contributed to GREENWARDENS' 3-2-0.  SUNDOG has lost to INKED PIG, falling 8 points, 
while helping make GREENWARDENS a 3-2-0 turn.  Due to its absence and inability to 
defend the throne, PURPLE DRAGON has lost the title of Duelmaster.  And all eyes were 
on INKED PIG this turn as he ascended to the throne of Duelmaster.  MALCORN has a new 
victor!  Tell me, is nothing sacred?  I have heard from unimpeachable sources that 
Drake's Barbecue uses trolls in their stew.  Talk about gristle!   
     The crowd's roar, the smell of iron and leather, mixed with sweat, what more 
could a warrior ask of life?  Well, besides that.   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  Kudos go out to BLACKOAK this turn, for revenging GREENWARDENS' 
bloodfeud against INK & STEEL RETRO's warrior THE NEEDLE.  Well done.  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.   
     Thought for the day, a new sword shines bright, but the notched sword sings the 
sweetest.  Well, I'm burning daylight here in MALCORN 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

dragons.  Not my style, live and let live, all that stuff. -- Sundog
P.S.  Purple is a weird color on a dragon, though.

only win on our team.  It looks good all around. -- Wren
