                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, friends and fiends, welcome to your friendly neighborhood spyreport.  
I doubt VEASTIAN will ever be the same.  It seems the training can make the 
difference, as MELODY MAYHEM is pushed out of top team by WEIRD STUDENTS, who came 
from 0th with a 5-0-0 this turn.  Now keep the taverns open late tonight, for there 
are sorrows to drown for DOLI CAPAX, whose 0-0-0 this turn dropped them by 5 into 
10th.  And let's see, POOR PATTY fought AMBITIOUS GUARD and gained 17 points and 
contributed to WEIRD STUDENTS' 5-0-0.  TENNESSEE LINE has lost to PHANTASM, falling 8 
points, while helping make MELODY MAYHEM a 0-5-0 turn.  We should ask AEROPEARL about 
the thrill of victory, and what being the new Duelmaster does for a warrior, it's now 
the one to ask.  Tell me, is nothing sacred?  I have heard from unimpeachable sources 
that The Swinging Aardvark uses trolls in their stew.  Talk about gristle!   
     The crowd's roar, the smell of iron and leather, mixed with sweat, what more 
could a warrior ask of life?  Well, besides that.  I also notice that the TOLBIN'S 
X-MEN stable was the most avoided team this turn.  Come on VEASTIAN, what are you 
afraid of?  And guess who avoided TOLBIN'S X-MEN stable the most?  Believe it or not, 
it was DEVIL SLAYERS.  Anyone surprised?  The most challenged warrior this turn was 
SUPERHEROES!'s warrior THOUGHT FIGHTER.  More fighters challenged him than challenged 
the Duelmaster!  In a brave attempt, SHOULD BE FUN from FRANKENSTEIN HUNT challenged 
up 25 points to fight THOUGHT FIGHTER from the SUPERHEROES! stable.  SHOULD BE FUN 
perhaps got his just desserts, seeing as he beat THOUGHT FIGHTER and ended up with 88 
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.  Is it really true that VEASTIAN has 
more dishwashers per capita that fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...   
     I like this place, VEASTIAN, the taverns have old wine, and young serving girls. 
Who could ask for more?  Well, I'm burning daylight here in VEASTIAN and I've a long 
road ahead of me.  Happy Trails.  Until you see my quill in VEASTIAN again, 
farewell-- Alarond the Scribe
