                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail NIATOLI ISLAND!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed 
for your deeds.  The KNIGHTS OF LEGEND 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, BS fought KURELLEU ZIEN and gained 21 points and contributed to DEMONSPAWN's 
2-3-0.  BROCK has lost to MYTEE, falling 15 points, while helping make DEMONSPAWN a 
2-3-0 turn.  This week's Duelmaster bout was between STONE GOLEM and our Duelmaster 
GRU-SON OF GROTT, making a Dark Arena Challenge.  The crowds were amazed this turn, 
as STONE GOLEM killed the Duelmaster, GRU-SON OF GROTT, leaving BIG LAKE BANDITS in 
mourning.  This incredible death has allowed, I might add, LORTAN FALCONEYE from BIG 
LAKE BANDITS to ascend to the throne of Duelmaster, and I hear DARK ARENA is not 
happy.  Can someone confirm a rumor for me?  I hear the top team makes their losing 
fighters do dishes at The Don't Drop Inn until they win.  Maybe?   
     He who challenges well, fights well.  He who avoids without cause, shall lose 
for good reasons.  My mama told me that one.  DEMONSPAWN has cause to stand tall, as 
they were NIATOLI ISLAND's most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a team 
to beat.  And avoiding DEMONSPAWN more than any other team we find OBSIDIAN HALL.  
NIATOLI ISLAND, are we going to accept, or respect this sort of thing?  The most 
challenged warrior this turn was KNIGHTS OF LEGEND's warrior PRINCE VALIANT.  More 
fighters challenged him than challenged the Duelmaster!  I don't know about you, but 
TORG THUNDERCLAP challenging down 22 points to SUMMERTEETH's PIEHOLDEN SWEET, is not 
really worthy of BIG LAKE BANDITS.  I thought challenges were for warriors, not 
cowards looking for easy wins.  TORG THUNDERCLAP won victory over PIEHOLDEN SWEET, is 
nothing sacred?  BYL BONESNAPPER of BIG LAKE BANDITS had better have a good reason 
for challenging down 12 points in a challenge which he killed.  I thought BYL 
BONESNAPPER showed great skill and promise when he dispatched DEMON.  All right, so I 
slept through it!  Big deal!   
     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.  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, NIATOLI ISLAND, the taverns have old wine, and young serving 
girls.  Who could ask for more?  Well, I'm burning daylight here in NIATOLI ISLAND 
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
