                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, friends and fiends, welcome to your friendly neighborhood spyreport.  
I doubt TRICORUS will ever be the same.  It seems the training can make the 
difference, as DARK HORSEMEN is pushed out of top team by VENTURE BROS., who came 
from 3rd with a 2-3-0 this turn.  And let's see, MOONDARK fought WACHICHU and gained 
21 points and contributed to DARK HORSEMEN's 2-3-0.  WACHICHU has lost to MOONDARK, 
falling 13 points, while helping make AMAZON ELITE a 1-1-0 turn.  We should ask PUMA 
about the thrill of victory, and what being the new Duelmaster does for a warrior, 
it'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 Silver Chalice until they win.  Maybe?   
     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 DARK 
HORSEMEN stable was the most avoided team this turn.  Come on TRICORUS, what are you 
afraid of?  And guess who avoided DARK HORSEMEN stable the most?  Believe it or not, 
it was AMAZON ELITE.  Anyone surprised?   
     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.   
     Thought for the day, a new sword shines bright, but the notched sword sings the 
sweetest.  Always good to rest in TRICORUS, 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

back, and the echo gets boring after a while.  So...
