                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
MALCORN brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Of course, we're all terribly 
impressed to see BADGER win a fight and gain 23 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, BADGER 
beat VITAE and VITAE lost 28 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  Going for broke or 
broken, our Duelmaster BANDIT PRINCE Dark Arena Challenged this turn.  The crowds 
were amazed this turn, as BANDIT PRINCE killed the Duelmaster, CHANGE, leaving BLIND 
MELON in mourning.  This incredible death has allowed, I might add, SILVAMERE from 
BLOODSWORN to ascend to the throne of Duelmaster, and I hear DARK ARENA is not happy. 
Kickbacks and bribes, kickbacks and bribes, how else do you think some of these guys 
win their fights?  Skill?  Ha!   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.  BLIND 
MELON, I suppose you'll be glad to know you were this turn's most avoided team.  Care 
to know who is the most afraid of you?  And it looks like THE GRAIL KNIGHTS avoided 
them the most this turn.  What a pack of would be losers, if you ask me.  Hmph.  Ooh, 
I'm frightfully impressed, BADGER was this turn's most challenged warrior.  Watch 
that ego swell, sports fans.   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  I could say I saw this coming, but so could anyone 
else.  Anyway, this turn it came.  ANGELTEAR's 12-6-1 has earned her the Dark Arena.  
Now hey, I like to see a death as much as the next guy, but hey BLOODSWORN, whyja 
send ANGELTEAR to the Dark Arena, look at hers record, huh?  And sending KORSETH to 
the Dark Arena was supposed to be one of your better ideas, BLOODSWORN?  Bye bye, 
warrior, bye bye...  LITTLE BITER, a glorious 14-21-0 fighter, has passed away.  Gee, 
too bad GREENWARDENS.  I can't say as I'm proud to find out that THE GRAIL KNIGHTS' 
SIR TOO DUMB has killed LITTLE BITER from GREENWARDENS.  I can say I wish 
GREENWARDENS good luck in their bloodfeud.  Honor is like a chainmail shirt, it only 
shines through use.  Certain nameless cowards will doubtless rebuke me on this one.   
     There's got to be a better place in MALCORN to get a drink than Drake's 
Barbecue!  Any suggestions?  Well, I've had enough of this drivel, and I'm sure you 
have too.  Off like a dirty shirt of padded leather.  I see the crowds are getting 
restless, I must leave now-- Snide Clemens

Our congratulations to Change. -- Jorja and the Greenwardens

Two-three-one.  What are things coming to?  Taught nine, learned three.  Damn.

What are things coming to if I can be blamed for killing a dragon?  It could've
burned down the forest! -- Wintergreen

Gah.  There IS a difference between a real dragon, and a gladiator who assumes a
dragon as an arena persona, you know! -- Wren

Well, okay, I guess I didn't really MEAN to kill a GUY, I don't know the guy, so why
would I want to kill him?  But it looked to ME like a dragon coming at me, and I know
what to do about THAT. -- Wintergreen
