                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail ARVAT!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed for your 
deeds.  It seems the training can make the difference, as DEVIL ADVOCATES is pushed 
out of top team by ANGELS OF PAIN, who came from 2nd with a 4-0-0 this turn.  The 
CHRISTIAN ROCK guild has had a 3-0-0 turn and deserves to be watched in the future.  
You never know where this kind of thing can lead.  And let's see, EAST TO WEST fought 
ARTEMIDORUS V and gained 17 points and contributed to CHRISTIAN ROCK's 3-0-0.  E. 
BLISS has lost to COMATOSE, falling 3 points, while helping make DEVIL ADVOCATES a 
3-2-0 turn.  And all eyes were on AGONY this turn as he ascended to the throne of 
Duelmaster.  ARVAT has a new victor!  By the way, was that our Duelmaster that I saw 
last night, cramped under the table at The Dripping Blade?   
     The crowd's roar, the smell of iron and leather, mixed with sweat, what more 
could a warrior ask of life?  Well, besides that.  DEVIL ADVOCATES has cause to stand 
tall, as they were ARVAT's most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a team 
to beat.  And guess who avoided DEVIL ADVOCATES stable the most?  Believe it or not, 
it was ANGELS OF PAIN.  Anyone surprised?   
     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 ARVAT 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.  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

     The Duke has issued a warning for all owners of waterfront property in Arvat:
     Heavy rains on the mountains to the north and west of the Delta make flooding
     almost certain.  Please take note of the Official High-Water Marks along the
     channel and harbor.  Any property below those marks, or between the marks and
     the water, will NOT be eligible for ducal relief monies in the event of flood
     damage.  Anyone who has built there should have known better! -- Arenamistress
     Sugar
     P.S.  Besides, it isn't like Arnie has much money to do relief work WITH, you
     know.
