                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail NIATOLI ISLAND!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed 
for your deeds.  It seems the training can make the difference, as THERAPY SESSIONS 
is pushed out of top team by BOOKSHELF, who came from 4th with a 4-1-0 this turn.  
BOOKSHELF stable has parlayed this turn's 4-1-0 into a 3 space move up the rankings.  
This brings them up to 1st place.  Good work, guys!  And let's see, LADY WU fought 
IRINKESTA and gained 22 points and contributed to LUROCIANS II's 2-3-0.  COMPULSION 
has lost to HELLBURNER, falling 10 points, while helping make THERAPY SESSIONS a 
0-4-0 turn.  Due to his absence and inability to defend the throne, PEA POD has lost 
the title of Duelmaster.  And not without some honor, LADY KALDRA now claims the 
title and throne of Duelmaster of NIATOLI ISLAND.  By the way, was that our 
Duelmaster that I saw last night, cramped under the table at The Don't Drop Inn?   
     I tell you, a green quarterstaff lasts longer than a seasoned sapling.  A basher 
friend of mine assures me this is true.   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  Kudos go out to ACID BATH this turn, for revenging DEATH PENALTY's 
bloodfeud against THERAPY SESSIONS' warrior PARANOIA.  Well done.  Is it really true 
that NIATOLI ISLAND 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.  It's been nice chatting with you, until we meet again, keep your 
swords sharp and your hammers heavy.  Until you see my quill in NIATOLI ISLAND again, 
farewell-- Alarond the Scribe

Rosebud -- Touche!  I suppose my team had that coming after Paranoia dispatched your
fighter, but why did it have to be Manic?  He was a 10-10-11-17-11-4-21 AB learning 3
skills a fight.  He will be sorely missed and his death with be avenged!  It looks
like it will be a match-up of killers too, provided my challenge goes through. --
Valamond, manager of Therapy Sessions

All -- That's interesting.  I went 3-2-0 and took top team honors, and all that I get
mentioned for are my two losses?  That Olaf Modeen has got to go! -- Valamond

Sniper -- I think I forgot to give M.D. his Prozac before that fight and he was more
depressed than manic.  My bad. -- Valamond

Veggies -- I don't know who runs your team, but welcome back to Niatoli Island. --
Valamond

As of late I have been speaking to all of the teams that I manage and have decided to
change my managerial name.  I'll admit it took a little time now to come up with a
new name, but we think it is better suiting.  So, from now on you will know me as...
Hollowshade.  New name, same butt whooping.  HAHAHA! -- Hollowshade, mgr. of Dark
Penalty

Jess Scott Spaid -- But it will be for the best in the long run.  Too many kittens
around as it is. -- Rintirisse

Pea Pod -- The very concept is disgusting!  Vegetables, phfaugh! -- Thimbell,
carnivore to the bone

Khalhums Dwarf?  That hairy little sizest?  I want to take a dagger and shave him
close.  Ly. -- Irinkesta

Four Past Midnight -- If it's really good, even later than that. -- Korienellen

The Dark Knights sat at the Dark Table with grim faces.  All present knew that there
could be no quarter.  The Forces of Desolation would be unleashed.  There would be no
turning back, no mercy and no hesitation to do what was necessary.  Teeth gritted and
knuckles whitened with fury as the IMPERIAL PROCLAMATION was signed by each Dark
Knight.
