                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, friends and fiends, welcome to your friendly neighborhood spyreport.  
I doubt RODEKI will ever be the same.  And let's see, BIG DISAPPOINTMENT fought 
DANGEROUS CRIMINAL and gained 20 points and contributed to COLOR ME SUAVE's 2-3-0.  
EACHAM has lost to LEMON TENDER, falling 4 points, while helping make DELVERS a 2-3-0 
turn.  And all eyes were on CORRUPT TURNKEY this turn as he ascended to the throne of 
Duelmaster.  RODEKI has a new victor!  By the way, was that our Duelmaster that I saw 
last night, cramped under the table at The Warty Toad?   
     I tell you, a green quarterstaff lasts longer than a seasoned sapling.  A basher 
friend of mine assures me this is true.  The most challenged warrior this turn was 
DELVERS' warrior STONECRUSHER II.  More fighters challenged it than challenged the 
Duelmaster!  COLDFISHFINGER of COLOR ME SUAVE had better have a good reason for 
challenging down 8 points in a challenge which he lost.  I thought COLDFISHFINGER 
showed great skill and promise when he was defeated by ROCKHOG JR.  All right, so I 
slept through it!  Big deal!   
     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.   
     Remember, blood on the purple robe does not change it from a purple robe.  Dare 
to fight bravely.  Always good to rest in RODEKI, 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
