                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail MALCORN!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed for your 
deeds.  It seems the training can make the difference, as GREENWARDENS is pushed out 
of top team by THE GRAIL KNIGHTS, who came from 3rd with a 3-1-0 this turn.  The 
BLIND MELON guild has had a 3-1-0 turn and deserves to be watched in the future.  You 
never know where this kind of thing can lead.  And let's see, NO RAIN fought QUASIL 
and gained 36 points and contributed to BLIND MELON's 3-1-0.  TAEDIUM has lost to 
CHANGE, falling 13 points, while helping make TERMINUS a 1-3-0 turn.  The attempts to 
dethrone the Duelmaster have failed, and SABBATH remains MALCORN's top warrior for 
another turn.  Tell me, is nothing sacred?  I have heard from unimpeachable sources 
that The Victory Tavern uses trolls in their stew.  Talk about gristle!   
     Oriental wise man once say, 'Hiding behind shields prevents proper sun tanning.' 
Inscrutable, but true.  I also notice that the CRUCIAL TAUNT stable was the most 
avoided team this turn.  Come on MALCORN, what are you afraid of?  And avoiding 
CRUCIAL TAUNT more than any other team we find THE GRAIL KNIGHTS.  MALCORN, are we 
going to accept, or respect this sort of thing?   
     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.  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?  It's been nice chatting with you, until we meet again, keep 
your swords sharp and your hammers heavy.  Until you see my quill in MALCORN again, 
farewell-- Alarond the Scribe

Sabbath -- Well done.  I tried my best but it wasn't going to happen. --
StoleYourSpot

Groovy Sir Grimm -- Hey, that wasn't luck, it was superior skill!  Bound to have
been. -- Snowfoot

Killer -- Heck.  Back and forth, huh? -- Wren

No Rain -- We noticed.  This is good because the roof hasn't been fixed yet, but...
DEEP, WIDE cracks in the ground.  It's dangerous to walk across a field these days.
-- Little Biter

Change -- Hmm, my leaves are turning yellow.... -- Treeshadow

Sleepy House -- Thus easy to dig under.  No one notices... until it's too late.  Not
that a well-built house couldn't just ignore a den below, but how many are built well
these days? -- Badger
