                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail KATI-TEI!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed for your 
deeds.  And let's see, BLINDED BY KNOWING fought HORA DE ATTAQUE and gained 16 points 
and contributed to THE PLAGUE's 2-3-2.  RAISE THE ABYSS has lost to PARAR RAYOS, 
falling 5 points, while helping make THE PLAGUE a 2-3-2 turn.  Well done, KATI-TEI, 
the Duelmaster was this turn's most challenged warrior.  Perhaps REIGN OF BLADES is 
not as thrilled, being challenged 2 times.  This turn REIGN OF BLADES Dark Arena 
Challenged SPYMASTER in what was KATI-TEI's Title bout.  The attempts to dethrone the 
Duelmaster have failed, and REIGN OF BLADES remains KATI-TEI's top warrior for 
another turn.  Can someone confirm a rumor for me?  I hear the top team makes their 
losing fighters do dishes at The Warty Toad until they win.  Maybe?   
     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 PLAGUE has cause to stand 
tall, as they were KATI-TEI's most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a 
team to beat.  And avoiding THE PLAGUE more than any other team we find MEDAL OF 
HONOR 26.  KATI-TEI, are we going to accept, or respect this sort of thing?  Well 
now, what do you expect when someone like JAMES DOOLITTLE from MEDAL OF HONOR 26 
challenges down 24 points to fight FORANDIN of WANDERERS?  I thought challenges were 
for warriors, not cowards looking for easy wins.  JAMES DOOLITTLE overcame FORANDIN, 
is nothing sacred?   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  REIGN OF BLADES must have surprised THE PLAGUE this turn, after they 
sent her to the Dark Arena, but the Dark Arena couldn't hold her!  Whatever bright 
future HORA DE ATTAQUE may have had, it's all history now.  The manager of CULT OF 
THE SUN has lost a promising 3-1-0 warrior.  A brave warrior does not carry a red 
shield, he has nothing to cover or hide when the fight is over.  Consider well.   
     Thought for the day, a new sword shines bright, but the notched sword sings the 
sweetest.  It's been nice chatting with you, until we meet again, keep your swords 
sharp and your hammers heavy.  Until you see my quill in KATI-TEI again, farewell-- 
Alarond the Scribe

Zing Fregado -- Nope, they are predicting a decline in temperature later this week,
and I'm clinging to that. -- Valgard

Hora de Attaque -- It's surely felt like that.  But it isn't the heat, you know, it's
the humidity. -- Terrpone

Reign of Blades -- Cool!  I like hanging out with you, it makes me feel big and
clumsy.  Just what I need, right?  But it did rain. -- Rambling Ox

An Honest Merchant?  As if! -- Forandin

Jubali Junhao -- Sounds like a tall drink with an umbrella in it, which isn't a bad
idea now that I think about it. -- Lorimina

Parar Rayos -- Listen, stopping lightnin?  That's nothing.  Any little wire can do
that. -- Lorimina

Jabali Junhao -- What a horrid thought! -- Terrpone

Our congratulations to Reign of Blades. -- the Wanderers
