                                      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 SHADOWMIST is pushed out of 
top team by THE TAKEN, who came from 2nd with a 2-2-0 this turn.  And let's see, 
SANDSTORM fought BOND SERVANT and gained 16 points and contributed to CARDOW HUNTERS' 
3-2-0.  DREKENMOSS has lost to SINISTER FINN, falling 5 points, while helping make 
SHADOWMIST a 2-3-0 turn.  Due to his absence and inability to defend the throne, THE 
WHITE RABBIT has lost the title of Duelmaster.  And not without some honor, SPIN 
MCDUECAN now claims the title and throne of Duelmaster of LAPUR.  Tell me, is nothing 
sacred?  I have heard from unimpeachable sources that The Warty Toad uses trolls in 
their stew.  Talk about gristle!   
     The crowd's roar, the smell of iron and leather, mixed with sweat, what more 
could a warrior ask of life?  Well, besides that.  I also notice that the THE TAKEN 
stable was the most avoided team this turn.  Come on LAPUR, what are you afraid of?  
And avoiding THE TAKEN more than any other team we find BLACK SAMURAI.  LAPUR, are we 
going to accept, or respect this sort of thing?  The most challenged warrior this 
turn was CLAN CROW's warrior SINISTER FINN.  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.  You gotta do what you gotta do.  
THE TAKEN has sent HAMBONE to the Dark Arena.  The deed is done.  Lift the ale, and 
toast the memory.  A brave warrior does not carry a red shield, he has nothing to 
cover or hide when the fight is over.  Consider well.   
     Thought for the day, a new sword shines bright, but the notched sword sings the 
sweetest.  It's been nice chatting with you, until we meet again, keep your swords 
sharp and your hammers heavy.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets to paper-- 
Alarond the Scribe

Oh, MUCH better today!  TWO wins.  I, of course, defeated a dwarf.  Hairy little
thing, I thought he was... a rough-coated rat, maybe.  But he made a good effort. --
Dancing Cat
P.S.  And he DID detect a bunch of skills.
P.P.S.  And he's still got a better record than me statistically.  I'm basically one-
three, and he's one-two-and-a-half.

Perilous Quinn -- Perilous indeed!  Dangerous curves, soft shoulders, slippery when
wet....  I admit, I enjoyed it. -- Sandstorm

Grumblebone -- Sounds like my sort of line. -- Morning Thunder
P.S.  Jorja says I should tell you, "Good name."

Draaf -- There was something inevitable about that, though I'm impressed with myself
for making you work four minutes to win it. -- Windglass

Hironobu -- Look at it this way, you've nowhere to go but up! -- Red Mare
