                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, warriors of ZENSU!  Once again I've been called out of retirement for 
my abilities and insights into Spyreporting.  What's with SERGEANT 13?  He actually 
beat ZENSU's CONVICTED THIEF, and walked away with 13 more points from the fight.  
Major screwup at BEYOND THE PALE.  CALHOUN DEANE lost 17 points to KUNG-FU MASTER.  
Some new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe CALHOUN DEANE will provide more easy wins...  
ZENSU has a Duelmaster who doesn't sit back and get lazy.  He Dark Arena Challenged 
DARK ARENA's ARENAMASTER DIEGO (0-0-0), which should prove (ahem!) interesting.  The 
crowds were amazed this turn, as ARENAMASTER DIEGO killed the Duelmaster, GRUNT 5, 
leaving MEDAL OF HONOR G1 in mourning.  So now CORBIE LEK gets to be ZENSU's 
Duelmaster.  But what comes around goes around.  Advice to fighters with a 1 
will--give up fighting!   
     Speaking of cowardly avoiders and unfair challenges...   
     Warriors of ZENSU unite.  You have only your games to lose!  Some people in 
ZENSU think MEDAL OF HONOR G1 was too harsh when they sent SERGEANT 9 (3-0-1) to the 
Dark Arena.  Them's the breaks, I say.  Is it my imagination, or are fighters getting 
younger every day?  To die so young, so gloriously!   
     Many other cities have retirement homes for aged warriors.  Any plans here?  
ZENSU is a nice place to live, but I don't like to live in nice places.  Remember--a 
good fighter needs both good skills and good luck.  Until next time,-- Olaf Modeen

Jorja -- Why yes I use the Aquarian Deck. I prefer it over my other 5 decks. -- Sage

Zensu -- I failed you and my apologies; the Arena commission that allows sand baggers
of extreme degrees would not allow me to fight in the tourney as an immortal
Challenger.  I was pushed into the Freshman Class and was soundly pounded.  The
guidelines are still weighted to the support of the tourney warriors, not us Arena
Warriors.  I mean truly since I had my invite how could I have taken advantage at the
challengers not even the champions level.  But instead forced into the bottom of the
pack in the Freshman Class with the recently raised Sand baggers.  Most unkind.-- The
Fool

     Yeah, well, that's a quarter-orc, five-thousand-year-old wizard for you.  Not
     your fault. -- Arenamaster Diego

All -- We may miss this turn do to vacation. -- Sage
"Food for Thought Builds better brains"

The Fool -- If that's the lesson of the Fool, I don't think I like it. -- Calhoun
Deane

The Hierophant -- Too traditional, too inflexible.  I knew it all along. -- Jofre
Mainz

Grunt 5 -- Ugh. -- Terilee Linz

I find myself thinking, "The Khalhums Dwarf could go home any day." -- Corbie Lek

Sergeant 11 -- You may be a short Shew, but you aren't a soft one. -- Carina Linz

Our congratulations to Grunt 5. -- Beyond the Pale
