                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, friends and fiends, welcome to your friendly neighborhood spyreport.  
I doubt VEASTIAN will ever be the same.  And let's see, SHADOW FROGGY fought XANDER 
and gained 29 points and contributed to BATTLE FROGS 12-15's 1-3-0.  BLACK ZANJO has 
lost to CONVICTED ASSASSIN, falling 10 points, while helping make THE FAMILY a 2-3-0 
turn.  We should ask HALFTIME about the thrill of victory, and what being the new 
Duelmaster does for a warrior, he's now the one to ask.  Can someone confirm a rumor 
for me?  I hear the top team makes their losing fighters do dishes at The Welcome 
Wench until they win.  Maybe?   
     I tell you, a green quarterstaff lasts longer than a seasoned sapling.  A basher 
friend of mine assures me this is true.   
     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.  Is it really true that VEASTIAN has 
more dishwashers per capita that fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...   
     Thought for the day, a new sword shines bright, but the notched sword sings the 
sweetest.  Well, I'm burning daylight here in VEASTIAN and I've a long road ahead of 
me.  Happy Trails.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets to paper-- Alarond the 
Scribe

Five-oh today, with two of the wins (ONLY two!) over standbys.  That's good.  But I'm
having trouble getting that target off my armor.  I keep expecting some aimed blow to
come along and stab me in the back.  Not an experience I look forward to! --
