                                      SPY REPORT

     Busy, busy, busy, lots of things happening in TRICORUS this turn, and let's 
start with a look at some of the teams.  It seems the training can make the 
difference, as CM - THE REVENGE is pushed out of top team by DARK HORSEMEN, who came 
from 2nd with a 3-2-0 this turn.  And let's see, KLARALLA fought OSKI NOBLE and 
gained 12 points and contributed to DARK HORSEMEN's 3-2-0.  MOLOTOV has lost to CABO 
WABO, falling 9 points, while helping make VENTURE BROS. a 1-4-0 turn.  Defending his 
title for another turn, ATOMIC PUNK kept DARK HORSEMEN's warrior, MOONDARK, 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?   
     He who challenges well, fights well.  He who avoids without cause, shall lose 
for good reasons.  My mama told me that one.  CM - THE REVENGE 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 CM - THE REVENGE stable the most?  Believe it or not, 
it was VAN DUEL.  Anyone surprised?   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  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.   
     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 TRICORUS and I've a long road 
ahead of me.  Happy Trails.  Until you see my quill in TRICORUS again, farewell-- 
Alarond the Scribe

One-four this time.  Damn.  My victory over the Cult Member was easy, which is why I
"get" to write The Personal this time.  Not because it was easy, particularly, but
just because it happened at all.  To all the real gladiators, even though they
defeated my teammates, I raise a cup in salute.  I'm not going to offer you a cup of
your own, fermented mare's milk is an acquired taste (and who'd want to acquire it,
if there was something better around?). -- Shadow Rose
