                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, in NIATOLI ISLAND 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 SUMMERTEETH is pushed out of top team by OBSIDIAN HALL, who 
came from 2nd with a 4-1-0 this turn.  And let's see, SIR EDWARD fought DEN'S 
FAVORITE and gained 20 points and contributed to KNIGHTS OF LEGEND's 2-2-0.  BENJYN 
BLAYDE has lost to BYL BONESNAPPER, falling 16 points, while helping make OBSIDIAN 
HALL a 4-1-0 turn.  INIGO MONTOYA challenged for the Duelmastership this turn, 
attempting to dethrone SEA DOGS' warrior.  And not without some honor, INIGO MONTOYA 
now claims the title and throne of Duelmaster of NIATOLI ISLAND.  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?   
     Oriental wise man once say, 'Hiding behind shields prevents proper sun tanning.' 
Inscrutable, but true.  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 guess 
who avoided DEMONSPAWN stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was OBSIDIAN HALL.  
Anyone surprised?  The most challenged warrior this turn was KNIGHTS OF LEGEND's 
warrior BLACK KNIGHT.  More fighters challenged him than challenged the Duelmaster!  
ZYRO of OBSIDIAN HALL had better have a good reason for challenging down 8 points in 
a challenge which it won.  I thought ZYRO showed great skill and promise when it 
defeated THE HAND COLLECTOR.  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.  I guess it was coming sooner or 
later, BIG LAKE BANDITS has lost PERFECTO VILLAINOUS, and NIATOLI ISLAND is bound to 
miss him.  For a little while, at least.  A brave warrior does not carry a red 
shield, he has nothing to cover or hide when the fight is over.  Consider well.   
     Thought for the day, a new sword shines bright, but the notched sword sings the 
sweetest.  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
