                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, friends and fiends, welcome to your friendly neighborhood spyreport.  
I doubt ZENSU will ever be the same.  And let's see, SELVUN fought DEVILISH ANGEL and 
gained 16 points and contributed to BEYOND THE PALE's 1-4-0.  DISEASE has lost to 
NOMAD, falling 11 points, while helping make LETHAL LEGION a 2-3-0 turn.  Defending 
his title for another turn, SLICE kept BEYOND THE PALE's warrior, TILARIN, from 
claiming the throne.  Tell me, is nothing sacred?  I have heard from unimpeachable 
sources that The Victory Tavern uses trolls in their stew.  Talk about gristle!   
     The crowd's roar, the smell of iron and leather, mixed with sweat, what more 
could a warrior ask of life?  Well, besides that.   
     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.  This is not good to see.  Why pray 
tell has BONE BREAKER been sent to the Dark Arena by LETHAL LEGION?  And why with a 
3-0-0 record??  Had I not seen it, it would be hard to believe.  CYCLOPS was sent to 
the Dark Arena and lived to tell about it!  Makes you think, no?  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.   
     I like this place, ZENSU, the taverns have old wine, and young serving girls.  
Who could ask for more?  Always good to rest in ZENSU, but never good to wear out my 
welcome.  Look for me in future turns.  Until you see my quill in ZENSU again, 
farewell-- Alarond the Scribe

Oddball -- Very well named, aren't you?  You must be the most irregularly spherical
golem in captivity, probably because nobody really wants to capture such an...oddity.
Are you good for things?  For instance, can you be fired from catapults, bursting in
the air over enemy strongholds?  Could we use you, with perhaps pelicans as mallets,
to play croquet? -- Tilarin

Nomad -- So, when are you going to start wandering around Alastari, giving time to
other arenas, other warriors, etc?  I feel sure that you should be shared.  Your
gifts are too great to be retained by the small gladiatorial community here in Zensu.
-- Dellis Linz

Doughboy -- I tried buttering your surface the minute you came out of the gate, but
it didn't help.  In fact, it made things worse!  I don't even KNOW if you're still
crusty, because you're so slippery now.  Darn.  Back to the old bread board.  There
must be SOMETHING that will soften you. -- Selvun
P.S.  But I thank you for the skills.

Blue Eyes -- I'll sing to that! -- Chuck Elvis
P.S.  I tried to serenade you in the Infirmary, but they sent some Shewish orderlies
to throw me out.  Don't worry, though, I'll see you when you get home.
