                                      SPY REPORT

     Busy, busy, busy, lots of things happening in SNOWBOUND this turn, and let's 
start with a look at some of the teams.  And let's see, SANDREENA fought LIFE AFTER 
DEATH and gained 23 points and contributed to MOTLEY KREWE's 1-2-1.  NEWLIN OHM has 
lost to INNUIT, falling 9 points, while helping make MIDDLE WAY 6 a 2-3-1 turn.  We 
should ask JENNA KUUL about the thrill of victory, and what being the new Duelmaster 
does for a warrior, she'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 Victory Tavern until 
they win.  Maybe?   
     He who challenges well, fights well.  He who avoids without cause, shall lose 
for good reasons.  My mama told me that one.  BASH BROS HOCKEY has cause to stand 
tall, as they were SNOWBOUND's most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a 
team to beat.  And avoiding BASH BROS HOCKEY more than any other team we find 
MESOPOTAMIA.  SNOWBOUND, are we going to accept, or respect this sort of thing?   
     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.  The manager of MESOPOTAMIA will not 
be pleased to learn that LIFE AFTER DEATH, a 2-0-1 fighter, has been killed at the 
hands of MOTLEY KREWE's SANDREENA.  Is it really true that SNOWBOUND has more 
dishwashers per capita that fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...   
     Remember, blood on the purple robe does not change it from a purple robe.  Dare 
to fight bravely.  Well, I'm burning daylight here in SNOWBOUND and I've a long road 
ahead of me.  Happy Trails.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets to paper--
