                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, friends and fiends, welcome to your friendly neighborhood spyreport.  
I doubt ARVAT will ever be the same.  Now keep the taverns open late tonight, for 
there are sorrows to drown for DEATH BY DESIGN, whose 0-0-0 this turn dropped them by 
7 into 15th.  PHILANTHROPISTS stable has parlayed this turn's 0-0-0 into a 5 space 
move up the rankings.  This brings them up to 8th place.  Good work, guys!  And let's 
see, MM fought COFFEE and gained 28 points and contributed to THE WILLBURYS' 2-1-0.  
COFFEE has lost to MM, falling 23 points, while helping make ERRATA a 1-1-0 turn.  
Due to its absence and inability to defend the throne, SLITHER has lost the title of 
Duelmaster.  We should ask DEE S. TROYER about the thrill of victory, and what being 
the new Duelmaster does for a warrior, she's now the one to ask.  Can someone confirm 
a rumor for me?  I hear the top team makes their losing fighters do dishes at The 
Warty Toad until they win.  Maybe?   
     The crowd's roar, the smell of iron and leather, mixed with sweat, what more 
could a warrior ask of life?  Well, besides that.  FISHERMAN'S WHARF has cause to 
stand tall, as they were ARVAT's most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a 
team to beat.  And avoiding FISHERMAN'S WHARF more than any other team we find DEVIL 
ADVOCATES.  ARVAT, are we going to accept, or respect this sort of thing?  Well, 
sports fans, take notice that FIZZGIGUE from FISHERMAN'S WHARF was ARVAT's most 
challenged warrior this turn.   
     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.  Whatever bright future TREMENDO may 
have had, it's all history now.  The manager of IL MALVAGIO has lost a promising 
4-1-0 warrior.  A brave warrior does not carry a red shield, he has nothing to cover 
or hide when the fight is over.  Consider well.   
     I like this place, ARVAT, the taverns have old wine, and young serving girls.  
Who could ask for more?  Well, I'm burning daylight here in ARVAT and I've a long 
road ahead of me.  Happy Trails.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets to paper-- 
Alarond the Scribe
