                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, friends and fiends, welcome to your friendly neighborhood spyreport.  
I doubt TRICORUS will ever be the same.  VENTURE BROS. stable has parlayed this 
turn's 2-3-0 into a 3 space move up the rankings.  This brings them up to 3rd place.  
Good work, guys!  Defending hers title for another turn, MOONDARK kept TRICORUS' 
warrior, M. CHARDINEE, from claiming the throne.  Can someone confirm a rumor for me? 
I hear the top team makes their losing fighters do dishes at The Blue Dolphin Inn 
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.  DARK HORSEMEN has cause to stand tall, as 
they were TRICORUS' most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a team to beat. 
And guess who avoided DARK HORSEMEN stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was 
AMAZON ELITE.  Anyone surprised?  The most challenged warrior this turn was VENTURE 
BROS.'s warrior HELPER.  More fighters challenged it than challenged the Duelmaster!  
In a brave attempt, HELPER from VENTURE BROS. challenged up 20 points to fight 
SALMGEDAN from the DARK HORSEMEN stable.  HELPER perhaps got its just desserts, 
seeing as it bested SALMGEDAN and ended up with 82 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.  AMAZON ELITE made what looks to be 
a tough decision this turn, as they sent YOLANDA, with a record of 11-6-0, to YOLANDA 
death.  Farewell, hers.  AMAZON ELITE has some questions to answer.  Like 'why did 
you kill your fighter, YOLANDA, who had a record of 11-6-0?' We'd like to remind 
certain teams not to rob the graves of their enemies.  You know who you are; and it's 
considered rude.   
     I like this place, TRICORUS, the taverns have old wine, and young serving girls. 
Who could ask for more?  It's been nice chatting with you, until we meet again, keep 
your swords sharp and your hammers heavy.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets 
to paper-- Alarond the Scribe
