                                      SPY REPORT

     Fantastic news for our city!  Three teams arrived on the sands this turn.  As 
such, I will devote more than a small part of my reporting to them. Two of the teams 
managed to win awards.  RAVAGING HORDE had the biggest point gain and THE OUTLAWS 4 
took the unchartered team award.  BOOK OF THOMAS only fought one warrior (not counting 
their two Dark Arenas).  THE OUTLAWS 4 had the only kill for the turn, a new warrior 
from NUMBERS GAME.  GEORGE NELSON executed TUPAC-12 in a 1 minute one-sided match.
     All total, the new teams brought 13 of the 39 warriors, 3 of the 4 DA's, and were 
represented in 8 of the 18 fights.  For obvious reasons, they did not make any of the 
challenges and their warriors were not among the warriors who made avoids.  Speaking 
of those avoids, USEFUL WEAPONS and AVENGERS were the most avoided two teams (4 avoids 
each) and WHAMMO & THUDDA 4U warriors issued half of those avoids.
     In our title fight, DR. SOX made a fearless challenge to the now former 
Duelmaster, NINE-TAILED FOX.  Not surprising to me, it was over quick and WHAMMO & 
THUDDA 4U, with the throne, took 3 awards for the turn (though the chartered 
recognition award, so often the Duelmaster's went to RYO of the AVENGERS). 
     While it wasn't for the throne, I was quite entertained by ELUSIVE 12TH's 
challenge.  Two turns ago, ELUSIVE 12TH broke a HAT PIN.  I'd tell Smithy to just go 
get another one as they aren't that special.  But this turn, ELUSIVE 12TH went after 
another USEFUL WEAPON.  ELUSIVE 12TH was overpowered by CANDLESTICK in a 1 minute 
mismatched Challenge brawl.  So the bloodfeud is avenged on ELUSIVE's challenge.
     A while back I noted that there were many more long fights than normal.  This 
turn, the fights were virtually all 1 or 2 minutes.  The exception: GUTSTRAP was 
defeated by MA BARKER in a 3 minute gruesome  beginner's struggle.
     My second to last comment this turn is that Slashers made a huge jump from 4 
representatives last turn to 10 this turn.  I can only hope that 4 of their 8 losses 
were in the Dark Arena, but I suspect that is not the case.
     My final comment?  Welcome (and welcome back) again to BOOK OF THOMAS, THE 
OUTLAWS 4, and RAVAGING HORDE.  I am your spy mistress and unlike the spy reporters in 
most of the land, I would pass the Turing Test.  (I hope that I am an improvement.)

Belinda, you Bimbo! Shut your face! Fhatgn made a great challenge against me. Har har. 
He did! He should do it again. And again. -- Candlestick
P.S. And again.

Uh, Assur, where are your persads, Bud? Cat got your tongue? Quiet demeanors are not 
allowed in what is known as One's Own Arena. -- Lady Smith

Muh Wepns done did 1-0 anna Chain DA.  Don't need no chain. -- Smithy

Health. Humility. Honor. -- Lady Smith

Spectrum -- Hope that was what you wanted.  I certainly got what I wanted. -- Shark

Belinda -- Two formerly undefeated warriors go at it and you fail to report on us?  
You should be ashamed. -- Waves too Big

311 -- After that fight, I wanted to call 911, but unfortuantely, they don't respond 
to birds. -- Seagull

Lady Smith -- That is because Smithy is more enlightened than you!  I hope Elusive 
12th learns the meaning of humiliation.  I'd teach it myself, but my warriors here are 
wanting.  Though hopefully one or both of my new recruits work out.  One looks 
promising. -- Assur
