                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail ALJAFIR!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed for your 
deeds.  It seems the training can make the difference, as ROYAL PAIN is pushed out of 
top team by BODY OF MUSIC, who came from 2nd with a 2-1-1 this turn.  ALL THINGS 
FLOYD stable has parlayed this turn's 2-1-0 into a 3 space move up the rankings.  
This brings them up to 3rd place.  Good work, guys!  And let's see, TALKING HEADS 
fought EMBEZZLING SCRIBE and gained 20 points and contributed to BODY OF MUSIC's 
2-1-1.  HURRICANE FLOYD has lost to OFF THE HOOK, falling 10 points, while helping 
make ALL THINGS FLOYD a 2-1-0 turn.  And not without some honor, T.G.I. FLOYD'S now 
claims the title and throne of Duelmaster of ALJAFIR.  Can someone confirm a rumor 
for me?  I hear the top team makes their losing fighters do dishes at The Vile Vizier 
until they win.  Maybe?   
     I tell you, a green quarterstaff lasts longer than a seasoned sapling.  A basher 
friend of mine assures me this is true.  The most challenged warrior this turn was 
BODY OF MUSIC's warrior KENNY CHESTNEY.  More fighters challenged him than challenged 
the Duelmaster!   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  This is not good to see.  Why pray tell has WANDA been sent to the Dark 
Arena by FISH THANGS?  And why with a 6-3-0 record??  A brave warrior does not carry 
a red shield, he has nothing to cover or hide when the fight is over.  Consider well. 
     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
