                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail JHANS!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed for your 
deeds.  It seems the training can make the difference, as REIGN is pushed out of top 
team by MIDDLE WAY 17, who came from 3rd with a 4-1-0 this turn.  And let's see, 
IRINA JINZ fought STICK and gained 20 points and contributed to MIDDLE WAY 17's 
4-1-0.  STICK has lost to IRINA JINZ, falling 16 points, while helping make REIGN a 
1-4-0 turn.  Due to his absence and inability to defend the throne, ALLIS has lost 
the title of Duelmaster.  We should ask RAEM about the thrill of victory, and what 
being the new Duelmaster does for a warrior, he's now the one to ask.  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?   
     He who challenges well, fights well.  He who avoids without cause, shall lose 
for good reasons.  My mama told me that one.  I also notice that the WAY OF THE SWORD 
C4 stable was the most avoided team this turn.  Come on JHANS, what are you afraid 
of?  And avoiding WAY OF THE SWORD C4 more than any other team we find REIGN.  JHANS, 
are we going to accept, or respect this sort of thing?   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  We'd like to remind certain teams not to rob the graves of their enemies.  
You know who you are; and it's considered rude.   
     Thought for the day, a new sword shines bright, but the notched sword sings the 
sweetest.  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 JHANS again, farewell-- 
Alarond the Scribe

Stick -- How could you let people "stick" you with a nickname that seems to imply
stiff, dried-up, and boring?  That is not at all accurate. -- Irina Jinz

Kiki -- Aaah, the sands.  Nah, how about... dinner.  Maybe dancing? -- Farlo Jost

Candy -- I knew someone must. -- Chester Grell

Our congratulations to Allis. -- Jorja and the Middle Way

Raem -- Bummer.  Still, it happens, and I survived, so it could've been worse. --
Farlo Jost
P.S.  But I'm going to find it hard to dance with Kiki.

Tanny -- Drat.  I just don't seem to have a way with serpents.  Maybe I should take
classes in flute? -- Irina Jinz

Candy -- I don't know where Chester got the idea you're licorice.  Red hot cinnamon,
that's my impression.  Ouch. -- Kolly Liggit
P.S.  But at least you aren't GRINNING at me.

Rorg -- Whew!  Saved from an oh-fer turn.  Thanks.  I'm glad it was me to get the
win, that means I won't have to do the dishes this week. -- Fermin Jonsa

Shorty -- Hmm, you actually ARE short.  Strange to see someone named appropriately.
Good fight. -- Chester Grell
