                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail XOCHITHLAN!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed for 
your deeds.  It seems the training can make the difference, as IDLE ITEMS is pushed 
out of top team by CRIMINAL ELEMENT, who came from 3rd with a 4-1-0 this turn.  And 
let's see, WOXTON fought BROKE GOLF T. and gained 14 points and contributed to KIWI 
CONNECTION's 3-2-0.  QUITA ROSALA has lost to MERCY-DEPARTED, falling 8 points, while 
helping make THE MIDDLE WAY a 1-4-0 turn.  The attempts to dethrone the Duelmaster 
have failed, and MANN SLAUGHTER remains XOCHITHLAN's top warrior for another turn.  
Can someone confirm a rumor for me?  I hear the top team makes their losing fighters 
do dishes at The Swinging Aardvark 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.  I also notice that the CRIMINAL 
ELEMENT stable was the most avoided team this turn.  Come on XOCHITHLAN, what are you 
afraid of?  And avoiding CRIMINAL ELEMENT more than any other team we find IDLE 
ITEMS.  XOCHITHLAN, are we going to accept, or respect this sort of thing?  The most 
challenged warrior this turn was CRIMINAL ELEMENT's warrior PAT RISIDE.  More 
fighters challenged him than challenged the Duelmaster!  Well now, what do you expect 
when someone like KEEBLER from IDLE ITEMS challenges down 19 points to fight PAT 
RISIDE of CRIMINAL ELEMENT?  Well, surprise, surprise, KEEBLER was bested by PAT 
RISIDE, and by the way, KEEBLER now has a recognition score of 9.  MAGLOR of SONS OF 
FEANOR had better have a good reason for challenging down 10 points in a challenge 
which he won.  I thought MAGLOR showed great skill and promise when he defeated SAML 
TYNE.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  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.  Always good to rest in XOCHITHLAN, but never good to wear out my welcome.  
Look for me in future turns.  Until you see my quill in XOCHITHLAN again, farewell-- 
Alarond the Scribe

Xyokor Yahl -- Well fought.  Thanks for the learns.  You actually hit me, I'm
impressed. -- Matt Riside

Ipswich -- You didn't read the script.  You were supposed to take a dive.

Lucario -- Tsk tsk tsk.  First rule of this game is don't kill the Duelmaster's
teammate.  Now I'll have to treat you to a Duelmaster downchallenge bloodfeud for a
turn. -- Matt Riside

Jorja -- Good to see you still around, you sexy manager you. *wink wink* -- Fizban

Tonezy -- Welcome to the game, young one.  May your sword stay sharp and your wounds
heal quickly. -- Fizban

Ms D. Meener -- My momma always told me never to hit a lady.  I have since discovered
that some women in the arena aren't ladies, but I like to give everyone the benefit
of the doubt to begin with. -- Xyokor Yahl

Maglor -- Sounds like some kind of new tech.  Shouldn't you be an elf? -- Quita
Rosala

You'd think a grizzled Veteran Mercenary would have more to teach than "always carry
dry socks." -- Timor Unred

Who let that guy bring his horse into the arena? -- Fallon Grimm

Asquith -- I didn't need that. -- Saml Tyne

Greetings, Tonezy. -- Jorja, the Middle Way
