                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail JHANS!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed for your 
deeds.  VOW TO DESTROY stable has parlayed this turn's 1-3-0 into a 4 space move up 
the rankings.  This brings them up to 7th place.  Good work, guys!  And let's see, 
SILVERBLEED fought DESTROY and gained 18 points and contributed to VOW TO DESTROY's 
1-3-0.  'WERD challenged for the Duelmastership this turn, attempting to dethrone 
PORN IN A BARN's warrior.  Defending hers title for another turn, WHISKERS kept 5440 
OR FIGHT!'s warrior, 'WERD, from claiming the throne.  Tell me, is nothing sacred?  I 
have heard from unimpeachable sources that Lucas Lounge uses trolls in their stew.  
Talk about gristle!   
     He who challenges well, fights well.  He who avoids without cause, shall lose 
for good reasons.  My mama told me that one.  FUR YOUR EYES ONLY 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 FUR YOUR EYES ONLY stable the most?  Believe it or not, 
it was 5440 OR FIGHT!.  Anyone surprised?  Well, sports fans, take notice that 'WERD 
from 5440 OR FIGHT! was JHANS' most challenged warrior this turn.  In a brave 
attempt, MOO from PORN IN A BARN challenged up 18 points to fight REBUILD from the 
STILLMATIC stable.  MOO perhaps got hers just desserts, seeing as she subdued REBUILD 
and ended up with 61 recognition points.   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  Had I not seen it, it would be hard to believe.  OVERSTAND was sent to the 
Dark Arena and lived to tell about it!  Makes you think, no?  Is it really true that 
JHANS has more dishwashers per capita that fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...   
     Thought for the day, a new sword shines bright, but the notched sword sings the 
sweetest.  Always good to rest in JHANS, but never good to wear out my welcome.  Look 
for me in future turns.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets to paper-- Alarond 
the Scribe
