                                      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, ELDA MAINZ fought EMBEZZLING 
SCRIBE and gained 20 points and contributed to BEYOND THE PALE's 4-1-0.  DACEANA LINZ 
has lost to DANGEROUS CRIMINAL, falling 7 points, while helping make BEYOND THE PALE 
a 4-1-0 turn.  And all eyes were on BORIS KARLOFF 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?   
     Oriental wise man once say, 'Hiding behind shields prevents proper sun tanning.' 
Inscrutable, but true.  I also notice that the LETHAL LEGION stable was the most 
avoided team this turn.  Come on ZENSU, what are you afraid of?  And guess who 
avoided LETHAL LEGION stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was MEN OF 1,000 FACES. 
Anyone surprised?   
     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.  You gotta do what you gotta do.  
LETHAL LEGION has sent DISEASE to the Dark Arena.  The deed is done.  Lift the ale, 
and toast the memory.  A brave warrior does not carry a red shield, he has nothing to 
cover or hide when the fight is over.  Consider well.   
     Remember, blood on the purple robe does not change it from a purple robe.  Dare 
to fight bravely.  Always good to rest in ZENSU, 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

"The battle begins."  Short and to the point.  Something to be said for that, and the
less the better.

Boris Karloff -- It seems to ME that someone with a thousand faces could pick a
better one than that to wear for every day. -- disgruntled ghost of Dellis Linz

Ah, the Ambitious Guard.  You'd think he'd have good health benefits with his job,
wouldn't you?  But insurance agents... you just can't trust 'em regardless.  I
suspected this all along. -- Bella Deane

Ebola -- Like I'm going to get into a bathtub with you?  In the immortal words of
Debby Tonte, As if! -- Selvun
P.S.  Take the skills and go away, okay?

The Userous Merchant had the REALLY bad judgment to insult me at the beginning of the
fight--in the second line, even!  I guess maybe next time he'll think first. -- Chuck
Elvis
P.S.  He's nothing but a hound dog, crying all the time.  Dog slobbers, yuck.

In one way, I feel badly about the Fratsfa Slave, but in another way, I say let him
suffer!  People who default on loans just make it harder for the rest of us, after
all. -- Daceana Linz the Unsympathetic

Reaper -- May every scribe you have occasion to hire cheat you! -- Ghost of Faranesi
Kara Hinh, Skilled Scribe

Daceana Linz -- It would be more useful if you were to lose, you do realize this?
The victor's bonus would help me pay off my debt faster. -- Petrus of Tarrgir, debtor
and bond-servant, aka Fratsfa Slave

Chuck Elvis -- How annoying, that I should be caught in the same, or at least a
similar, position as my slave Petrus, and thus forced to associate with the likes of
you!  Gladiators are so uncouth. -- Vanchen d'Arens, Merchant and Moneylender

Bella Deane -- Don't gloat, woman, it's unbecoming.  But you could visit me in the
Infirmary and offer a sympathetic smile.  I wouldn't mind that at all.  You could
even soothe my fevered brow with your hand. -- Captain Sarnj, Guard
