                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, friends and fiends, welcome to your friendly neighborhood spyreport.  
I doubt ZENSU will ever be the same.  The LETHAL LEGION guild has had a 3-1-1 turn 
and deserves to be watched in the future.  You never know where this kind of thing 
can lead.  And let's see, REAPER fought EMBEZZLING SCRIBE and gained 15 points and 
contributed to LETHAL LEGION's 3-1-1.  SELVUN has lost to EBOLA, falling 10 points, 
while helping make BEYOND THE PALE a 3-2-0 turn.  And all eyes were on SLICE this 
turn as he ascended to the throne of Duelmaster.  ZENSU has a new victor!  Can 
someone confirm a rumor for me?  I hear the top team makes their losing fighters do 
dishes at The Victory Tavern 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.  MEN OF 1,000 FACES has cause to stand 
tall, as they were ZENSU's most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a team 
to beat.  And guess who avoided MEN OF 1,000 FACES stable the most?  Believe it or 
not, it was MEN OF 1,000 FACES.  Anyone surprised?  The most challenged warrior this 
turn was BEYOND THE PALE's warrior DELLIS LINZ.  More fighters challenged her than 
challenged the Duelmaster!  Well now, what do you expect when someone like BORIS 
KARLOFF from MEN OF 1,000 FACES challenges down 31 points to fight DELLIS LINZ of 
BEYOND THE PALE?  We're not surprised to hear that BORIS KARLOFF killed DELLIS LINZ, 
but I bet it would be interesting to hear why MEN OF 1,000 FACES made such a 
challenge.   
     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.  BEYOND THE PALE has lost DELLIS 
LINZ to the arena in the sky, but they don't seem to be worried.  What do you expect 
from 19-29-0?  MEN OF 1,000 FACES, with any luck BEYOND THE PALE will successfully 
bloodfeud BORIS KARLOFF for killing such a warrior as DELLIS LINZ.  Have a little 
decency, will ya?  A brave warrior does not carry a red shield, he has nothing to 
cover or hide when the fight is over.  Consider well.   
     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

Boris Karloff -- Honestly!  If you've got a thousand faces, couldn't you have picked
a better looking one to wear? -- Dellis Linz

The Fratsfa Slave is Convincian.  This is a significant datum.  It tells you
something about the dark side of local history, in fact. -- Selvun

Not only Convincian, but a wimp.  Selvun didn't mention that, because he's got
"manners."  Me, I see it, I say it. -- Chuck Elvis

The Captured Orc is actually rather a dear.  Quite gallant, and so impressive!  Just
incredibly manly. -- Bella Deane

That Userous Merchant has it IN for me, and out, too! -- Daceana Linz
