                                      SPY REPORT

     Busy, busy, busy, lots of things happening in CALEAM this turn, and let's start 
with a look at some of the teams.  The HOME LIFE guild has had a 3-1-1 turn and 
deserves to be watched in the future.  You never know where this kind of thing can 
lead.  And let's see, DE DE MAO fought MISS PRISS and gained 25 points and 
contributed to SHERWOOD FOREST's 3-2-0.  MISS PRISS has lost to DE DE MAO, falling 22 
points, while helping make GOLDEN CANYON a 1-4-0 turn.  Somebody's not going to like 
this, (then again, somebody will), but our Duelmaster, SAPPER, has died, and AMEE has 
killed it.  Can someone confirm a rumor for me?  I hear the top team makes their 
losing fighters do dishes at The Welcome Wench until they win.  Maybe?   
     I tell you, a green quarterstaff lasts longer than a seasoned sapling.  A basher 
friend of mine assures me this is true.  I also notice that the WARCKERS stable was 
the most avoided team this turn.  Come on CALEAM, what are you afraid of?  And 
avoiding WARCKERS more than any other team we find HEADBANGERS.  CALEAM, are we going 
to accept, or respect this sort of thing?  Well, sports fans, take notice that 
KORIBUS from GOLDEN CANYON was CALEAM's most challenged warrior this turn.  Building 
dreams on hope, SPLINTER challenged up 28 points this turn to take on KORIBUS from 
GOLDEN CANYON stable.  And crowds were on their feet when SPLINTER claimed a victory 
from KORIBUS, and now has 61 points for his efforts.  Well now, what do you expect 
when someone like TUK ADOW from WARCKERS challenges down 18 points to fight GO-FER of 
GOLDEN CANYON?  We're not surprised to hear that TUK ADOW defeated GO-FER, but I bet 
it would be interesting to hear why WARCKERS made such a challenge.  In a brave 
attempt, MOUNTAIN TROLL from HEADBANGERS challenged up 23 points to fight FLIMSY from 
the WARCKERS stable.  MOUNTAIN TROLL perhaps got his just desserts, seeing as he 
bested FLIMSY and ended up with 94 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.   
     I like this place, CALEAM, the taverns have old wine, and young serving girls.  
Who could ask for more?  Always good to rest in CALEAM, 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
