                                      SPY REPORT

     Busy, busy, busy, lots of things happening in TALCAMA this turn, and let's start 
with a look at some of the teams.  And let's see, RAKIM fought MEOUSA and gained 19 
points and contributed to HIP HOP HEROES' 2-1-0.  DAN has lost to GURGLES, falling 10 
points, while helping make SHEPHERDS a 3-2-0 turn.  Defending hers title for another 
turn, DERRY DARLIN kept ARDUIN GRIMOIRE's warrior, KILL KITTEN, from claiming the 
throne.  Can someone confirm a rumor for me?  I hear the top team makes their losing 
fighters do dishes at The Original Arthur's Last Stand until they win.  Maybe?   
     The crowd's roar, the smell of iron and leather, mixed with sweat, what more 
could a warrior ask of life?  Well, besides that.  I also notice that the RYAN'S 
HENCHMEN stable was the most avoided team this turn.  Come on TALCAMA, what are you 
afraid of?  And avoiding RYAN'S HENCHMEN more than any other team we find CENTER FOR 
OLDS.  TALCAMA, are we going to accept, or respect this sort of thing?  The most 
challenged warrior this turn was RYAN'S HENCHMEN's warrior THE DUBLINER.  More 
fighters challenged him than challenged the Duelmaster!  A'S SPECIAL BLEND of 
SHEPHERDS had better have a good reason for challenging down 8 points in a challenge 
which he won.  I thought A'S SPECIAL BLEND showed great skill and promise when he 
bested THE DUBLINER.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     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.  Is it really true that TALCAMA has 
more dishwashers per capita that fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...   
     Remember, blood on the purple robe does not change it from a purple robe.  Dare 
to fight bravely.  It's been nice chatting with you, until we meet again, keep your 
swords sharp and your hammers heavy.  Until you see my quill in TALCAMA again, 
farewell-- Alarond the Scribe
