                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, friends and fiends, welcome to your friendly neighborhood spyreport.  
I doubt CLIFFHOME will ever be the same.  It seems the training can make the 
difference, as JINDA-BAN is pushed out of top team by INQUISITION CLONES, who came 
from 4th with a 3-0-0 this turn.  INQUISITION CLONES stable has parlayed this turn's 
3-0-0 into a 3 space move up the rankings.  This brings them up to 1st place.  Good 
work, guys!  And let's see, RIQUETTIE fought ENTEI and gained 21 points and 
contributed to JINDA-BAN's 2-3-0.  ENTEI has lost to RIQUETTIE, falling 18 points, 
while helping make FIRE DECK a 1-2-0 turn.  The attempts to dethrone the Duelmaster 
have failed, and LEE LEE LO LEE remains CLIFFHOME's top warrior for another turn.  
Tell me, is nothing sacred?  I have heard from unimpeachable sources that The Choking 
Ogre uses trolls in their stew.  Talk about gristle!   
     Oriental wise man once say, 'Hiding behind shields prevents proper sun tanning.' 
Inscrutable, but true.  INQUISITION CLONES has cause to stand tall, as they were 
CLIFFHOME's most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a team to beat.  And 
avoiding INQUISITION CLONES more than any other team we find FIRE DECK.  CLIFFHOME, 
are we going to accept, or respect this sort of thing?  The most challenged warrior 
this turn was INQUISITION CLONES' warrior SCROD BOY.  More fighters challenged him 
than challenged the Duelmaster!  In a brave attempt, TORKOAL from FIRE DECK 
challenged up 18 points to fight SCROD BOY from the INQUISITION CLONES stable.  
TORKOAL perhaps got his just desserts, seeing as he lost to SCROD BOY and ended up 
with 36 recognition points.  BLAZIKEN of FIRE DECK had better have a good reason for 
challenging down 11 points in a TV challenge which he won.  I thought BLAZIKEN showed 
great skill and promise when he beat CONNIE PAKKIT.  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.  Had I not seen it, it would be hard 
to believe.  SAPPHIRE was sent to the Dark Arena and lived to tell about it!  Makes 
you think, no?  Is it really true that CLIFFHOME 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 CLIFFHOME, but never good to wear out my welcome.  
Look for me in future turns.  Until you see my quill in CLIFFHOME again, farewell-- 
Alarond the Scribe
