                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, friends and fiends, welcome to your friendly neighborhood spyreport.  
I doubt ZORPUNT will ever be the same.  And let's see, PINK TACO fought MIKELA POOLE 
and gained 29 points and contributed to SWEET BLISS' 1-0-0.  MIKELA POOLE has lost to 
PINK TACO, falling 23 points, while helping make KRILL CAVALRY a 1-4-0 turn.  The 
attempts to dethrone the Duelmaster have failed, and ULTIMATE SIN remains ZORPUNT's 
top warrior for another turn.  Can someone confirm a rumor for me?  I hear the top 
team makes their losing fighters do dishes at The Dripping Blade until they win.  
Maybe?   
     Oriental wise man once say, 'Hiding behind shields prevents proper sun tanning.' 
Inscrutable, but true.  I also notice that the KRILL CAVALRY stable was the most 
avoided team this turn.  Come on ZORPUNT, what are you afraid of?  And guess who 
avoided KRILL CAVALRY stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was MONEY PIT.  Anyone 
surprised?   
     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 ZORPUNT 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 ZORPUNT again, 
farewell-- Alarond the Scribe

Ultimate Sin -- At last I succumb, and it is sooo good.  Rich, dark, semi-sweet
chocolate....  Waiting just makes it better. -- Mikela Poole
P.S.  Waiting within reason, that is.  Not TOO much waiting.

Shiris Kularsin, Veteran of many Military Actions -- Er, that IS the correct way to
address you, right?  Thank you for the skills.  I will use them well. -- Tiralea
Flete

Do Hickey -- Ah...I see it now.  This "do hickey" of yours is an attempt to build the
Better Mousetrap, yes?  Well, good luck. -- Teri Lark

Holy Moly? -- An, I know what that is!  Wild garlic, sure defense against malign
spells.  And given that you're also a seven-foot Shew, against a LOT of malign
spells.  Very good stuff. -- Loren Poole
P.S.  I'll take mine with basil and butter and put it on a breadstick, okay?

Hey!  Nobody told me I'd have to fight a thief!  A convicted thief, at that--it's
PROVEN on him.  So...it would be okay if I got really tough, right?  Good. -- Travis
T Flete

All -- I support Vendetta Cartel's observation of The Dark Knights!  If war is
declared on V.C. by The Dark Knights, then war is also declared on The Dark Knights
of the Desolate Empire by The Avengers of Light!  We have been quietly awaiting such
a chance to expose ourselves (all interested parties contact me c/o The Barbarians:
DM 31, Attn: Timothias)!  Come, Vendetta Cartel, let us show these broke-down
"Knights" what true warriors are! -- Gemini Goldphoenix, Overlord of The Avengers of
Light
