                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail LAPUR!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed for your 
deeds.  It seems the training can make the difference, as MID EARTH is pushed out of 
top team by CLAN CROW, who came from 3rd with a 2-2-0 this turn.  Now keep the 
taverns open late tonight, for there are sorrows to drown for OPEN HAND, whose 0-5-0 
this turn dropped them by 5 into 7th.  CARDOW HUNTERS stable has parlayed this turn's 
4-1-0 into a 4 space move up the rankings.  This brings them up to 3rd place.  Good 
work, guys!  And let's see, CLAYBANK fought WENIEN and gained 16 points and 
contributed to CARDOW HUNTERS' 4-1-0.  WENIEN has lost to CLAYBANK, falling 15 
points, while helping make MID EARTH a 2-3-0 turn.  Due to his absence and inability 
to defend the throne, CASIMIR PULASKI has lost the title of Duelmaster.  We should 
ask PUB O'CONNOR about the thrill of victory, and what being the new Duelmaster does 
for a warrior, he's now the one to ask.  Tell me, is nothing sacred?  I have heard 
from unimpeachable sources that The Warty Toad uses trolls in their stew.  Talk about 
gristle!   
     He who challenges well, fights well.  He who avoids without cause, shall lose 
for good reasons.  My mama told me that one.  BLACK SAMURAI has cause to stand tall, 
as they were LAPUR's most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a team to 
beat.  And avoiding BLACK SAMURAI more than any other team we find MID EARTH.  LAPUR, 
are we going to accept, or respect this sort of thing?  The most challenged warrior 
this turn was MID EARTH's warrior MOTHIAS.  More fighters challenged him 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.  A farewell moment, if you please, 
ULPHOR of MID EARTH has been sent to the Dark Arena, and was carried out on his 
shield.  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.   
     Remember, blood on the purple robe does not change it from a purple robe.  Dare 
to fight bravely.  Always good to rest in LAPUR, but never good to wear out my 
welcome.  Look for me in future turns.  Until you see my quill in LAPUR again, 
farewell-- Alarond the Scribe
