                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
NIATOLI ISLAND brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Later days, SUMMERTEETH, 
since KNIGHTS OF LEGEND took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  Of 
course, we're all terribly impressed to see PRINCE VALIANT win a fight and gain 16 
points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, GRU-SON OF GROTT beat DIGITALIS and DIGITALIS lost 9 
points.  You're breakin' my heart.  Due to absence, and inability to defend the 
throne, FROGGY FOO FOO has lost the Title of Duelmaster.  Start setting that alarm 
earlier!  And it's out with the old, in with the new, as FLOUR CHILD takes the Title 
and last week's bar tab from the old Duelmaster.  Heh, heh.  I'm not in a very good 
mood today, but why am I telling you this?  You want to know what's new, don't you, 
NIATOLI ISLAND?   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.  
DEMONSPAWN, I suppose you'll be glad to know you were this turn's most avoided team.  
Care to know who is the most afraid of you?  And it looks like OBSIDIAN HALL avoided 
them the most this turn.  What a pack of would be losers, if you ask me.  Hmph.  Ooh, 
I'm frightfully impressed, GRU-SON OF GROTT was this turn's most challenged warrior.  
Watch that ego swell, sports fans.  I suspect either a 21 will or a 21 ego on this 
one, but LORTAN FALCONEYE has challenged up by 30 in an attempt against PANDORA.  
And, oof!  LORTAN FALCONEYE saw stars around his helmet, after losing the fight, and 
disappointing the crowds, I might add.  Looks like time for laurels or hemlock, DA2 
was challenged by TORG THUNDERCLAP, who was ranked 29 points below him.  And sure, 
TORG THUNDERCLAP lost alright, but gained 4 recognition for his pains.  And pains 
they may indeed be!  I notice SPIRITHOT MINE challenging down 26 points to fight 
INIGO MONTOYA, OBSIDIAN HALL doubtless has some rotten excuse for such an insult to 
honor.  Ha ha aha ha aha ha!!!  SPIRITHOT MINE was was dealt death by by BIG LAKE 
BANDITS' warrior!  Thank the gods for big favors!  ha!   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  The bigger they are, as they say.  And what I say is 
that INIGO MONTOYA had better watch out for OBSIDIAN HALL, seeing as SPIRITHOT MINE 
felled it this turn.  Honor is like a chainmail shirt, it only shines through use.  
Certain nameless cowards will doubtless rebuke me on this one.   
     What does the NIATOLI ISLAND arena have in common with the inns?  It's just as 
comfortable to sleep in either place.  Ha ha ha ha!  Well, I've had enough of this 
drivel, and I'm sure you have too.  Off like a dirty shirt of padded leather.  I see 
the crowds are getting restless, I must leave now-- Snide Clemens

Looks like the scribes at the Gladiatorial Commission were challenged by my minion's
markings.  That is not quite what his name was supposed to be.... -- D. Darkheart

     You just can't get minions with good handwriting these days, can you?

After all the successive turns sending a stable mate to the Dark Arena I think we
blunted their weapons!  Gerelin, you may need to fire your training staff, that is if
they resurrect you!

See you in a turn, Niytyole. -- Spryte
