                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, friends and fiends, welcome to your friendly neighborhood spyreport.  
I doubt WILLAF will ever be the same.  And let's see, DUNROE MINH fought EMBEZZLING 
SCRIBE and gained 21 points and contributed to PUNNY AMINALS' 3-2-0.  MANIAC MALTESE 
has lost to SABRE, falling 8 points, while helping make ARENA FELINES a 1-4-0 turn.  
Well done, WILLAF, the Duelmaster was this turn's most challenged warrior.  Perhaps 
KITTEN KABOODLE is not as thrilled, being challenged 2 times.  GOLDEN BEAR challenged 
for the Duelmastership this turn, attempting to dethrone ARENA FELINES' warrior.  And 
all eyes were on GOLDEN BEAR this turn as he ascended to the throne of Duelmaster.  
WILLAF has a new victor!  Tell me, is nothing sacred?  I have heard from 
unimpeachable sources that The Welcome Wench uses trolls in their stew.  Talk about 
gristle!   
     I tell you, a green quarterstaff lasts longer than a seasoned sapling.  A basher 
friend of mine assures me this is true.  I also notice that the YAMABUSHI stable was 
the most avoided team this turn.  Come on WILLAF, what are you afraid of?  And 
avoiding YAMABUSHI more than any other team we find GOLDEN GLADIATORS.  WILLAF, 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.  You gotta do what you gotta do.  
ARENA FELINES has sent CAT A. CLYSMIC to the Dark Arena.  The deed is done.  Lift the 
ale, and toast the memory.  Is it really true that WILLAF has more dishwashers per 
capita that fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...   
     Thought for the day, a new sword shines bright, but the notched sword sings the 
sweetest.  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
