                                      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, RINGWORM fought JOBERT DONNER 
and gained 15 points and contributed to WRESTLING's 3-1-0.  JOBERT DONNER has lost to 
RINGWORM, falling 10 points, while helping make KRILL CAVALRY a 0-5-0 turn.  The 
attempts to dethrone the Duelmaster have failed, and POOP SLINGER 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?   
     He who challenges well, fights well.  He who avoids without cause, shall lose 
for good reasons.  My mama told me that one.  I don't know about you, but OOZING SORE 
challenging down 31 points to KRILL CAVALRY's DARRON POOLE, is not really worthy of 
LOOK OUT!!.  It pains me to see warriors take advantage of the system like this.  
OOZING SORE won victory over DARRON POOLE, as if it surprises anyone.  HERPES of LOOK 
OUT!! had better have a good reason for challenging down 15 points in a challenge 
which it won.  I thought HERPES showed great skill and promise when it beat TARANA 
STONE.  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.  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.   
     I like this place, ZORPUNT, the taverns have old wine, and young serving girls.  
Who could ask for more?  Always good to rest in ZORPUNT, 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
