                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail CALEAM!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed for your 
deeds.  It seems the training can make the difference, as SERPENTS HOLD is pushed out 
of top team by GOLDEN CANYON, who came from 2nd with a 3-2-0 this turn.  And let's 
see, SERGEANT 7 fought TRUSTWORTHY SCRIBE and gained 13 points and contributed to 
MEDAL OF HONOR GN's 2-2-1.  KOMODO DRAGON has lost to APPELONIA, falling 5 points, 
while helping make DOC LEGRAND'S LAB a 1-4-0 turn.  The attempts to dethrone the 
Duelmaster have failed, and EGLANTINE NOGS remains CALEAM'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?   
     He who challenges well, fights well.  He who avoids without cause, shall lose 
for good reasons.  My mama told me that one.  SERPENTS HOLD has cause to stand tall, 
as they were CALEAM's most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a team to 
beat.  And avoiding SERPENTS HOLD more than any other team we find DOC LEGRAND'S LAB. 
CALEAM, are we going to accept, or respect this sort of thing?  The most challenged 
warrior this turn was GOLDEN CANYON's warrior MISS CATTY.  More fighters challenged 
her than challenged the Duelmaster!   
     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 CALEAM has 
more dishwashers per capita that fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...   
     Thought for the day, a new sword shines bright, but the notched sword sings the 
sweetest.  Always good to rest in CALEAM, but never good to wear out my welcome.  
Look for me in future turns.  Until you see my quill in CALEAM again, farewell-- 
Alarond the Scribe

Miss Catty is trying to grab the pen from me on the grounds that she, as Popularity
Leader, should do The Personal.  Ha!  She LOST HER FIGHT, and to someone ranked well
below her.  What has she got to boast about?  I won my fight, I'm duelmaster, and *I*
will write The Personal today.  Our three-two showing wasn't bad, for us.
Unfortunate that Sam should lose to a Jaywalker, but there are days like that.  I've
probably lost to the Jaywalker myself. -- Eglantine Nogs
