                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, friends and fiends, welcome to your friendly neighborhood spyreport.  
I doubt TALCAMA will ever be the same.  And let's see, RAIN MAN fought DIP and gained 
15 points and contributed to THE MENTORS' 2-0-0.  DIP has lost to RAIN MAN, falling 8 
points, while helping make CENTER FOR OLDS a 2-2-0 turn.  THE DUBLINER challenged for 
the Duelmastership this turn, attempting to dethrone ARDUIN GRIMOIRE's warrior.  
Defending his title for another turn, KILL KITTEN kept RYAN'S HENCHMEN's warrior, THE 
DUBLINER, from claiming the throne.  Tell me, is nothing sacred?  I have heard from 
unimpeachable sources that The Original Arthur's Last Stand uses trolls in their 
stew.  Talk about gristle!   
     The crowd's roar, the smell of iron and leather, mixed with sweat, what more 
could a warrior ask of life?  Well, besides that.   
     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.  SHEPHERDS made what looks to be a 
tough decision this turn, as they sent RUTH, with a record of 27-18-0, to RUTH death. 
Farewell, hers.  The grave that HIP HOP HEROES had dug for RAKIM may yet be filled 
with the body of DARK CHAMPION.  Seldom are the likes of this to be seen.  RAKIM 
lives still!  A brave warrior does not carry a red shield, he has nothing to cover or 
hide when the fight is over.  Consider well.   
     Remember, blood on the purple robe does not change it from a purple robe.  Dare 
to fight bravely.  Always good to rest in TALCAMA, but never good to wear out my 
welcome.  Look for me in future turns.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets to 
paper-- Alarond the Scribe
