                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, in ZENSU a quiet thief gets rich, but a quiet spymaster gets poor.  So 
bring me ale and harken to my tidbits of news.  And let's see, DAY TURNER fought THE 
USEROUS MERCHANT and gained 21 points and contributed to MEDAL OF HONOR G1's 3-2-2.  
We should ask CHUCK ELVIS about the thrill of victory, and what being the new 
Duelmaster does for a warrior, he's now the one to ask.  Tell me, is nothing sacred?  
I have heard from unimpeachable sources that The Victory Tavern uses trolls in their 
stew.  Talk about gristle!   
     I tell you, a green quarterstaff lasts longer than a seasoned sapling.  A basher 
friend of mine assures me this is true.  I also notice that the GUARDIANS II stable 
was the most avoided team this turn.  Come on ZENSU, what are you afraid of?  And 
avoiding GUARDIANS II more than any other team we find MEN OF 1,000 FACES.  ZENSU, 
are we going to accept, or respect this sort of thing?  The most challenged warrior 
this turn was BEYOND THE PALE's warrior TERILEE LINZ.  More fighters challenged her 
than challenged the Duelmaster!  In a brave attempt, BELA LUGOSI from MEN OF 1,000 
FACES challenged up 23 points to fight PARTICLE MAN from the NEUROMANCERS stable.  
BELA LUGOSI perhaps got his just desserts, seeing as he was defeated by PARTICLE MAN 
and ended up with 81 recognition points.   
     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.  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 the sun next rises and my pen sets to 
paper-- Alarond the Scribe
