                                      SPY REPORT

     The Dark Arena is your friend.  At least so you hope.  Ten teams this turn sent
one or more warriors to the Dark Arena.  This is good because managers want to get
new warriors to fight here on the sands of Talcama.  This is bad, however, because 
clearly the recruits being sent by the commission aren't meeting the standards of the
managers here.  JUST HAD A BIG GULP was able to win in the Dark Arena.  BRAIN LIKE
STEEL did not manage to repeat his victory from last turn.
     There weren't many other deaths on the sands, though.  Only BILGE RAT, who had
previously killed twice and was bloodfeuded by MANTIS, was found dead in a regular
arena bout.  The other two Bloodfeuds, posted by BRICKTOP and BILLY THE SQUID, were
also successful.
     We saw very little change in the top ranks this turn.  The only warrior changing
class was GOKU, who beat MIDNIGHT ANGEL, gained 12 points, and became a Champion.
The Duelmaster, POOPIEHEAD, beat the returning SPAM GOLEM in a match up and got his
invite to Advanced Duelmasters.  Joining him will be teammate SWEATCAKE.
     Another oddity this turn was that not a single warrior dropped down a
recognition class.  Eight warriors moved up a class, but not even one dropped down.
The most challenged warrior was ASSUR, who lost this turn to SWEATCAKE.  And
surprising me yet more was the avoid report.  With nive warriors making sixteen
avoids, there was actually a question of who might be the most avoided team!  After
the avoids were tallied, it was the SEA DOGS who were the most avoided team, taking
three avoids, mostly from the BEAST MASTERS.
     Though one cannot fault the BEAST MASTERS too much, for they have the single
hottest warrior on the sands of late.  GREAT WHITE has started his career 8-2 in ten
straight turns.  Other hot warriors include POOPIEHEAD, LIPPS MCFRENZY, GOKU, and
GROBRAUM who are all 7-3 over the last ten turns.  While they don't qualify for the
hottest warriors list, there are also three youngsters who have begun their careers
undefeated.  DAVE is 5-0 and MANTIS and LEONIDAS are 4-0.  These three are all ranked
in the Challenger Initiate class and will find themselves tested by adepts very soon
if they continue their winning ways!
     There are many other tidbits in the newsletter for the sharp to glean, but I
tend to report on the easiest facts.  Like the fact that up-challengers went 2-4 this
turn while down-challengers went 4-1.  And the fact that ALCHEMY returned to Talcama
this turn with a 1-2 record.  CENTER FOR OLDS went 4-1 this turn, getting more wins
than everyone else this turn and over the last 3 turns.  GET OUTTA MY WAY and
WASTELAND had perfect 3-0 turns, but I personally think 4 wins is better than 3.  I
also noticed that the most popular warrior this turn, MAZOOM MILLIE, lost to the
least popular warrior, BEAKER, this turn.  That probably means something to the rest
of you!
     Welcome to Talcama, CLAN BATTLE AXE 2.  I am Sherik, the spy reporter for this
fine city.  I could wish you the best of luck from the RUGs, but from the rumors I've
heard, you'll be better off bribing several high placed commission representatives
than you'll be by worshipping the RUGs.

Assur -- I guess you're right; Adelaide should take a walk to the Dark Arena.  But,
but, it's my wife's name, so I kinda can't kill her myself. -- Le Pentarque

About the BR, as an innocent bystander, I don't understand why you don't have to play
5 guys each turn, and get penalties if you don't (the grammar here is unclear, but
I'm French). -- Le Pentarque

*Poopiehead* *Poopiehead* *Poopiehead*...can't help but loves an arena what does.

All -- Ya know, when a turn arrives weeks late, kinda beat-up lookin, I can't help
but wonder where ats it's been all this time, an what foul occurrences were befoulin
it. -- Applejack
P.S.  So these personals are fer turn a'fore last's fights.
P.P.S.  Thanks ta da gang.  A copy arrived in time fer tha weekend.

Clearly Cheated -- Clearly, but to whom are you going to complain? -- Millie
P.S.  I see they sent you up.  Tough team.

Billy the Squid -- You made the crowd's-fav list and I didn't...kinda thought they
loved us both.  Good fight and don't let the popularity go to your head, squid-brain.
-- B.

Hoffa -- A stroke of work, <eep> that needed working.  Good for me. <eep> -- Dinky

Doc Steele -- Da pleasure's all mine.  Let's fight. -- Applejack

All -- Junebug'd'a been a great basher, maybe, but a last second flip-flop killed dat
inspirational moment.  Should'a been a basher. -- A.

Stone Golem is one tough customer!  Too tough for poor Hannah:  14(2)-14(2)-15-11(2)-
21(2)-7-11(1), 17(+3)/18(+3)/16/21/14(-4)/8 VL/VL BS.

Muffin Man -- Clearly, Sunshine Bud Yellow deserved his fate as he was unable to even
beat Wandering Star!  Please DO BF for 4 turns, as that'll keep WS out of the BR
(assuming you don't join this turn and really crush me). -- Assur

Did Malic suddenly make Talcama a safe haven for Mordant Deserters or something?

Goku -- Wiggler you are NOT! -- Mary

The BR reached a new low last turn, with only a single fight recorded.  Smunch beat
