                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail LYRATILAN!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed for 
your deeds.  It seems the training can make the difference, as MEDAL OF HONOR IR is 
pushed out of top team by SAY MY NAME, who came from 2nd with a 3-2-0 this turn.  And 
let's see, RACHEL fought PRIVATE 2 and gained 25 points and contributed to FRIENDS' 
2-0-1.  ARIZONA BATES has lost to PRIVATE 5, falling 7 points, while helping make THE 
MIDDLE WAY 4 a 1-4-0 turn.  And not without some honor, KEOKUK MOON now claims the 
title and throne of Duelmaster of LYRATILAN.  Can someone confirm a rumor for me?  I 
hear the top team makes their losing fighters do dishes at The Mourngrym Inn and 
Tavern until they win.  Maybe?   
     Oriental wise man once say, 'Hiding behind shields prevents proper sun tanning.' 
Inscrutable, but true.  THE MIDDLE WAY 4 has cause to stand tall, as they were 
LYRATILAN's most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a team to beat.  And 
guess who avoided THE MIDDLE WAY 4 stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was 
FRIENDS.  Anyone surprised?  The most challenged warrior this turn was MEDAL OF HONOR 
IR's warrior PRIVATE 2.  More fighters challenged him than challenged the Duelmaster! 
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  The manager of MEDAL OF HONOR IR will not be pleased to learn that PRIVATE 
2, a 4-1-0 fighter, has been killed at the hands of FRIENDS' RACHEL.  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 LYRATILAN, but never good to wear out my welcome.  
Look for me in future turns.  Until you see my quill in LYRATILAN again, farewell-- 
Alarond the Scribe

No standbys again, and one-four this time.  It's a sign.  It means we need to
petition for strategy changes.  Not that anyone will ANSWER our petition, but we
should send it, you know? -- Arizona Bates, this turn's winner
