                                      SPY REPORT

     As so often is the case, our Duelmaster, BOOKIE, was fighting his last fight
here in Talcama.  Many expected the throne to be vacant and usurped by the highest
recognized fighter at the end of the day.  As is always the case in a title fight,
the crowds showed up, but not in great numbers.  While the intensity of the fight
wasn't anything that will go down in history, the result itself met with the approval
of all in the stands.  JOLEE BINDO came out quick and swinging and BOOKIE appeared to
have forgotten his Lunger magic at home.  And so, enthroned for at least one turn is
JOLEE BINDO of STAR WARS: KOTOR.
     In another fight that was missed by most (including yours truly), GALLOPING
GHOST bloodfeuded down 120 recognition points to attempt to avenge the death of
STEELE'S SHADOW at the hands of VYKTAN.  The bookies were not happy with this
particular fight.  Last I checked, early in the week, the odds were 115-1 against
VYKTAN.  We all know that odds have nothing to do with ability, though, and a lot
more to do with how many people have bet on each gladiator, but still, odds like that
are not what most would call in your favor.  After all, GALLOPING GHOST has been one
of the hottest warriors on the sands and VYKTAN, while a fine young warrior, does not
have the experience to face the second best warrior in the arena, or does he?  VYKTAN
surprised one and all and emerged victorious over GALLOPING GHOST, causing a loss of
77 recognition points and knocking the GHOST off the hottest warriors list.
     Also knocked off that list was GREEN REGENT, being forced to face the top Aimed
Blow in the arena, MYSHEL.  Last I heard, the Aimed Blow/Total Parry matchup heavily
favors the Aimed Blow.  And notice that Aimed Blows are the top style in the arena
right now while Total Parries have dropped to the bottom half in terms of recent
success.  MYSHEL, I'm sure, was very happy to get her desired challenge through, for
she was the most sought after warrior this turn.  PEEPSHOW THRILLER also was knocked
off the list.
     We still have some warriors who are 'on the list.'  The hottest warriors on the
sands right now are JOLEE BINDO, MOOPS!, LOAF, and TRIGGER HAPPY.  Hot teams on the
sands this turn include the SEA DOGS, who went a perfect 5-0 and the SHEPHERDS who
managed themselves to a very nice 4-1.  HEAVYMETAL KIDS, while not winning as many,
earned the Team on the move award while HELTER SKELTER holds the Current Top Team
Award.  CONSORTIUM CREW returned from inactivity and went 2-1 and a Dark Arena.  SOLE
BROS. also returned from inactivity and captured both the unchartered awards.  While
SOLE BROS. was the only unchartered team to fight, there top team award puts them as
the top team in the arena, not just the top unchartered team.
     WASTELAND and CENTER FOR OLDS were the most avoided teams, receiving three
avoids each.  PENTARCHIE-18 issued four of those six avoids.  Up challengers went 9-4
on the turn.  Down challengers went 8-5 on the turn.  Even challengers went 1-0.
Twenty three warriors moved up a recognition class while only four moved down a
class.  One of those four, of course, was GALLOPING GHOST, who moved down not one
class, but two full classes in the ranks.
     Finally, three warriors died on the sands.  None of them leave anything of value
behind, except perhaps as stand ins for easy victories from other opponents.  MARK OF
HEROES final mark is 1-14, killed by THROB.  JAKE was raked across the sands by NIKE,
who literally ran circles around his victim during the fight.  FILA was a mere
youngster who will be forgotten by most before this sentence is finished.
     That is my report and while I know there is much more that could have been
reported, my goal is to highlight the major events of the turn and hopefully in that
I have been successful! -- Sherik

All -- Going to try to go out with a bang...kill...you know, Violently.  So my TV
challenges go out to Ge'Tar and Back Juice again. -- Violence Fetish

Back Juice -- Wow, you're pretty quick.  I actually got a clash before swinging.  Go
figure, have spent my entire life thinking short spear was my favorite and find out
it's not.  My first challenge is going out to Ge'Tar because I think I can beat him,
the next is for you for contest reasons and all.  See you on the sands...literally.
-- Violence Fetish

Uranium -- I'm not as think as you bad I am. -- Voices

Data Loss -- If you were in the competition, I would challenge you with a tweaked
strat and smoke you like a cheap cigar.  Alas, the contest beckons so you get a
break. -- Fear
