                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, friends and fiends, welcome to your friendly neighborhood spyreport.  
I doubt JHANS will ever be the same.  It seems the training can make the difference, 
as ENGINES 'O' DEATH is pushed out of top team by BABES, who came from 2nd with a 
3-1-1 this turn.  And let's see, HOLLY fought FRONTLINE and gained 22 points and 
contributed to BABES' 3-1-1.  FRONTLINE has lost to HOLLY, falling 15 points, while 
helping make ENGINES 'O' DEATH a 0-5-0 turn.  And not without some honor, PUSS N 
BOOTS now claims the title and throne of Duelmaster of JHANS.  Can someone confirm a 
rumor for me?  I hear the top team makes their losing fighters do dishes at Lucas 
Lounge until they win.  Maybe?   
     The crowd's roar, the smell of iron and leather, mixed with sweat, what more 
could a warrior ask of life?  Well, besides that.  HELL'S KITCHEN has cause to stand 
tall, as they were JHANS' most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a team to 
beat.  And guess who avoided HELL'S KITCHEN stable the most?  Believe it or not, it 
was ENGINES 'O' DEATH.  Anyone surprised?  The most challenged warrior this turn was 
ENGINES 'O' DEATH's warrior IRON MAN.  More fighters challenged him than challenged 
the Duelmaster!  In a brave attempt, MAGGOT SOUFFLE from HELL'S KITCHEN challenged up 
23 points to fight IRON MAN from the ENGINES 'O' DEATH stable.  MAGGOT SOUFFLE 
perhaps got his just desserts, seeing as he defeated IRON MAN and ended up with 90 
recognition points.   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  This is not good to see.  Why pray tell has VENUS been sent to the Dark 
Arena by BABES?  And why with a 4-1-2 record??  Is it really true that JHANS has more 
dishwashers per capita that fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...   
     I like this place, JHANS, the taverns have old wine, and young serving girls.  
Who could ask for more?  Always good to rest in JHANS, but never good to wear out my 
welcome.  Look for me in future turns.  Until you see my quill in JHANS again, 
farewell-- Alarond the Scribe
