                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail SNOWBOUND!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed for 
your deeds.  And let's see, EXTRA LONG SHIFT fought SNUFFY and gained 24 points and 
contributed to BASH BROS SPORTS' 4-1-0.  SNUFFY has lost to EXTRA LONG SHIFT, falling 
21 points, while helping make OPEN SESAME a 0-4-0 turn.  Defending his title for 
another turn, COLD WEATHER kept OPEN SESAME's warrior, BLOGG, from claiming the 
throne.  Tell me, is nothing sacred?  I have heard from unimpeachable sources that 
The Victory Tavern uses trolls in their stew.  Talk about gristle!   
     He who challenges well, fights well.  He who avoids without cause, shall lose 
for good reasons.  My mama told me that one.  I also notice that the MESOPOTAMIA 
stable was the most avoided team this turn.  Come on SNOWBOUND, what are you afraid 
of?  And avoiding MESOPOTAMIA more than any other team we find BASH BROS SPORTS.  
SNOWBOUND, are we going to accept, or respect this sort of thing?  Well, sports fans, 
take notice that SLUSHY ICE from BASH BROS SPORTS was SNOWBOUND's most challenged 
warrior this turn.   
     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.   
     I like this place, SNOWBOUND, the taverns have old wine, and young serving 
girls.  Who could ask for more?  Always good to rest in SNOWBOUND, 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
