                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, in ZORPUNT a quiet thief gets rich, but a quiet spymaster gets poor.  
So bring me ale and harken to my tidbits of news.  And let's see, KENZI RACE fought 
PERSISTENT BEGGAR and gained 16 points and contributed to KRILL CAVALRY's 3-2-1.  
FOREST FIRE has lost to MODESTA STONE, falling 7 points, while helping make DISASTER 
a 0-3-0 turn.  The attempts to dethrone the Duelmaster have failed, and MOHAWK JOE 
remains ZORPUNT's top warrior for another turn.  By the way, was that our Duelmaster 
that I saw last night, cramped under the table at The Warty Toad?   
     Oriental wise man once say, 'Hiding behind shields prevents proper sun tanning.' 
Inscrutable, but true.  Well, sports fans, take notice that MODESTA STONE from KRILL 
CAVALRY was ZORPUNT's most challenged warrior this turn.  In a brave attempt, MUD 
SLIDE from DISASTER challenged up 23 points to fight DAVEY JONES from the PIRATE'S 
COVE stable.  MUD SLIDE perhaps got his just desserts, seeing as he was overcame by 
DAVEY JONES and ended up with 2 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.  We'd like to remind certain teams 
not to rob the graves of their enemies.  You know who you are; and it's considered 
rude.   
     Thought for the day, a new sword shines bright, but the notched sword sings the 
sweetest.  Always good to rest in ZORPUNT, but never good to wear out my welcome.  
Look for me in future turns.  Until you see my quill in ZORPUNT again, farewell-- 
Alarond the Scribe
