                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, in ARVAT a quiet thief gets rich, but a quiet spymaster gets poor.  So 
bring me ale and harken to my tidbits of news.  It seems the training can make the 
difference, as B.I.G. is pushed out of top team by COLLEGE RADIO, who came from 4th 
with a 3-2-0 this turn.  Now keep the taverns open late tonight, for there are 
sorrows to drown for LEGION OF SOULS, whose 0-0-0 this turn dropped them by 8 into 
16th.  COLLEGE RADIO stable has parlayed this turn's 3-2-0 into a 3 space move up the 
rankings.  This brings them up to 1st place.  Good work, guys!  The PENTAD guild has 
had a 4-1-0 turn and deserves to be watched in the future.  You never know where this 
kind of thing can lead.  And let's see, OCTAVIANUS fought YOUNG EMPIRES and gained 25 
points and contributed to PENTAD's 4-1-0.  GROUND CHUCK has lost to MAXIMUS, falling 
21 points, while helping make THE WALKING DEAD a 0-5-0 turn.  Somebody's not going to 
like this, (then again, somebody will), but our Duelmaster, FRANK WHITE, has died, 
and PIMP IN A BOX has killed him.  Tell me, is nothing sacred?  I have heard from 
unimpeachable sources that The Dripping Blade 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 SECRET 
SQUIRRELS stable was the most avoided team this turn.  Come on ARVAT, what are you 
afraid of?  And guess who avoided SECRET SQUIRRELS stable the most?  Believe it or 
not, it was DEVIL ADVOCATES.  Anyone surprised?  Well, sports fans, take notice that 
SYCAMORE STYLE from B.I.G. was ARVAT's most challenged warrior this turn.  In a fit 
of brilliance or of stupidity (hard to say sometimes), BRUTUS challenged BRITISH SEA 
POWER today, facing a 43 difference in recognition.  But Fate isn't always willing to 
be cheated, and BRUTUS lost to BRITISH SEA POWER, and COLLEGE RADIO has not stopped 
laughing.  In a brave attempt, SLUETHY LU from SECRET SQUIRRELS challenged up 25 
points to fight DEE MINKING from the DEVIL ADVOCATES stable.  SLUETHY LU perhaps got 
hers just desserts, seeing as she lost to DEE MINKING and ended up with 9 recognition 
points.   
     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.  I guess it was coming sooner or 
later, CALL THE PRIEST has lost A TOUCH OF EVIL, and ARVAT is bound to miss him.  For 
a little while, at least.  Hearty mugs of ale were raised in ARVAT today as DILBURT 
was bid farewell to a 8-4-0 warrior, with PUNCH PUPPIES of PAINFUL THOUGHT standing 
silent and pensive.  DEATH BY DESIGN, with any luck CALL THE PRIEST will successfully 
bloodfeud DROGON for killing such a warrior as A TOUCH OF EVIL.  Have a little 
decency, will ya?  Seriously now, is it really honorable for PUNCH PUPPIES from 
PAINFUL THOUGHT to kill DILBURT and give URT'S DURT URCHINS the chance to bloodfeud?  
Mmmm, could be.  Kudos go out to BABY HUEY this turn, for revenging COLLEGE RADIO's 
bloodfeud against THE WALKING DEAD's warrior DISEMBOWELED DORA.  Well done.  Is it 
really true that ARVAT has more dishwashers per capita that fighters?  Just thought 
I'd ask...   
     Remember, blood on the purple robe does not change it from a purple robe.  Dare 
to fight bravely.  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

Eyeball'?  My name is Joe, and I want to use it."
    A small and very shapely woman stepped up beside him.  "And I am really tired of 
being known as 'DA Bait'."  She smiled, causing Alarond to sway where he stood.  "I'd 
like to be known as... Aphrodite, I think."
    The others crowded forward, each advancing a claim, the babble of voice rising to 
a roar, the crowd beginning to look like a mob--and every member of it armed and 
dangerous.
    Alarond raised his hands to quiet them, without much success.  He raised his 
voice, too.  "We'll do it!  A Name-Change-O-Rama, as soon as we can get the paperwork 
lined up!  Two or three months, maybe--"
    The gladiators howled in protest at the delay.
    "No, listen!  The files here are HUGE, it will take time to get everything 
straight.  You've got to be patient.  It WILL happen!"
