                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail SUNSET!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed for your 
deeds.  Now keep the taverns open late tonight, for there are sorrows to drown for 
DEVIATION, whose 1-3-0 this turn dropped them by 9 into 13th.  BEN'S BAZAAR stable 
has parlayed this turn's 4-1-0 into a 7 space move up the rankings.  This brings them 
up to 9th place.  Good work, guys!  The TOOL SHED guild has had a 4-1-0 turn and 
deserves to be watched in the future.  You never know where this kind of thing can 
lead.  On their very first turn, BEN & JERRY'S had a 3-0-0, and with this kind of 
luck or skill, should do well.  Welcome to SUNSET.  And let's see, JONISSON fought 
TOO BIG TO FAIL and gained 26 points and contributed to SWORD OPERA's 2-2-0.  TOO BIG 
TO FAIL has lost to JONISSON, falling 19 points, while helping make DEVIATION a 1-3-0 
turn.  Well done, SUNSET, the Duelmaster was this turn's most challenged warrior.  
Perhaps TERRE HAUTE is not as thrilled, being challenged 6 times.  BORGES challenged 
for the Duelmastership this turn, attempting to dethrone TRIAL & ERROR's warrior.  
And not without some honor, BORGES now claims the title and throne of Duelmaster of 
SUNSET.  By the way, was that our Duelmaster that I saw last night, cramped under the 
table at Baba Yaga's Bar and Grill?   
     He who challenges well, fights well.  He who avoids without cause, shall lose 
for good reasons.  My mama told me that one.  I also notice that the BEN'S BAZAAR 
stable was the most avoided team this turn.  Come on SUNSET, what are you afraid of?  
And guess who avoided BEN'S BAZAAR stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was GRIM 
FANDANGO.  Anyone surprised?  Tsk, tsk, tsk.  SAM BYCK, does your manager know you're 
challenging down 16 points to fight I SHOT THE SHERIFF from DEVIATION?  Well, will 
you look at this, SAM BYCK was beat by I SHOT THE SHERIFF, and GOLGOTHA'S BLOOMS will 
have to explain why they made such a challenge in the first place.  In a brave 
attempt, BLOODSONG from GOLGOTHA'S BLOOMS challenged up 25 points to fight ROW DAYO 
DRIVE from the DEVIATION stable.  BLOODSONG perhaps got his just desserts, seeing as 
he subdued ROW DAYO DRIVE and ended up with 61 recognition points.   
     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.  I guess it was coming sooner or 
later, REPTILE RAMPAGE has lost SALAMANDER, and SUNSET is bound to miss him.  For a 
little while, at least.  420 B.C. has lost PURPLE MAGIC to the arena in the sky, but 
they don't seem to be worried.  What do you expect from 3-7-0?  ABBONDANZA has 
departed SUNSET, leaving NOMADIC TRIBE without their 2-6-0 warrior.  Question, just 
what was his team doing at the taverns last night?  Kudos go out to SPEEDO SMURF this 
turn, for revenging BEN'S BAZAAR's bloodfeud against GRIM FANDANGO's warrior BLAK 
THRUSH.  Well done.  A brave warrior does not carry a red shield, he has nothing to 
cover or hide when the fight is over.  Consider well.   
     I like this place, SUNSET, the taverns have old wine, and young serving girls.  
Who could ask for more?  Well, I'm burning daylight here in SUNSET and I've a long 
road ahead of me.  Happy Trails.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets to paper-- 
Alarond the Scribe

Row Dayo -- C'mon!  I had something going. -- Grey Fatal

Rhennthyll (right?) -- Not in my league, bub. -- Sam Byck

Jaryul -- I really, really enjoyed your challenge.  Challenge?  Hmm.  I really liked
your attempt.  We'll be seeing more of you, I hope. -- Poca

Foiler -- What a couple of slobs! -- Georg Elser

Elise -- Walk in with armor...walk out with chicken wire. -- Bloodsong

     Useful if you have chickens.

Dark at Heart and Ben's Bazaar -- Congrats on hitting 100 wins, and welcome to the
Big Boys' Club! ;) -- Stik

Ben's Bazaar -- I won't say it was unintentional, but it wasn't the way the Old Man
envisioned me starting my career.  But, such is life and death on the sands before
the mob in Sunset....  I await your vengeance. -- Blak Thrush

Jorja and Sword Opera -- You guys have doing all together too well lately, I'm not
making up any ground!  I think you'll beat me to 700 if this keeps up! -- Stik and 
Grim Fandango

Jonisson -- I expected more learns for a beating like that! -- Blakskul

Lord Protector Angel -- Congrats on your escape.  Do Sunset proud in immortality. --
Stik

DM Terre Haute -- Congrats on the throne, again.  Howsaboutacolumn?? -- Grim Fandango

Chesterton -- Well, at least I got what I was looking for.  The win would've been
icing on the cake! -- Jet Blak

Purple Magic -- You're better than the record indicates.  Perhaps with a strat tweak
I'll see you again some time... -- Like Water

Orwell -- Nicely done on your part, what can I say?  That's about it, apparently. --
Helzanjul

Happy New Year to all in our great arena, Sunset!!

Selia Dove and the folks of the Opera -- I guess the Tribe veterans are getting a bit
heavy handed lately.  Such deaths are always unfortunate.  It is a shame that the
stage has lost such a fine performer!  I would, of course, be available for a
bloodfeud should you ever decide to make one. -- Sasquatch the accidently leathal

Yuedebahl -- I almost had that one!  Even with the massive experience differential I
almost won.  Almost.  But didn't.  At least I learned a lot, which doesn't happen for
me very frequently. -- Walli

Terre Haute -- Congrats on the throne, I guess there is something to the whole Trial
and Error thing. -- Ben's Bazaar

Literate Loons -- Top team!!!  Top team on the move!!!  Congrats on a sweet 3-Turn
record. -- Ben's Bazaar

Ruin -- That was a most enjoyable "Cat" fight!  Gentleben told me that he has gotten
several request to see us fight again, apparently the guys loved it. -- Yodle
Layhe/she Who

Lucy Stone -- You got some splainin to do! -- Barbaric Smurf

George Elser -- I was hoping for a better outcome...obviously... -- The Foiler of his
own plans

Plague -- I have this idea that if you're fast enough you can outrun the plague, it
seems to be working so far, but I will keep you posted. -- Speedo Smurf

Blak Thrush -- I hate birds. - Gentleben

Blakskul -- A grim image, but not dramatic enough to be easily visible from the
stage.  I'd whitewash it, if I had to dance with a skull. -- Jonisson
P.S.  Or wear all white myself, I suppose.

Silver Haze -- Nah, just a standard case of blowing snow.  Cold, mind you, but not
silver as such. -- Kallia May

I Shot the Sheriff -- And a good job, too.  Unfortunately for you, the sheriff wasn't
a gladiator, so you're no forwarder. -- Trelaine

Sasquatch -- That was wholly uncalled-for. -- Ghost of Selia Dove

Bloodsong -- You probably need to take voice training if you're going to sing.  You
have room for improvement. -- Elise Isla

Ghost of Darth Deviate -- Apparently so. -- Elise Isla

Wild -- Interesting fight.  Looked like it could have gone a lot longer if you had
anticipated that sort of thing. -- Ophelia

Cerryl -- I would say, "Don't shoot the messenger," but I guess I'm more of a scout.
-- Bruno

Darkness -- I guess that makes up for the two previous fill character matchups.
Thanks for the swell skills! -- Hope Springs

Walli -- Wow, someone I can beat!  Yes, you should avoid me the next time you're
ranked higher. -- Yuedebahl

Pacifistic Smurf -- Fighting you makes me seem more popular and standing next to you
makes me seem more beautiful. -- Lucy Stone
