                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail TRICORUS!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed for your 
deeds.  It seems the training can make the difference, as DECEIVERS is pushed out of 
top team by XCOM CHARLIE, who came from 2nd with a 5-0-0 this turn.  The XCOM CHARLIE 
guild has had a 5-0-0 turn and deserves to be watched in the future.  You never know 
where this kind of thing can lead.  And let's see, XCOM24 fought THE USEROUS MERCHANT 
and gained 18 points and contributed to XCOM CHARLIE's 5-0-0.  HEADSHOT has lost to 
GUZMAN, falling 12 points, while helping make VENTURE BROS. a 1-3-0 turn.  Defending 
his title for another turn, NOG kept DECEIVERS' warrior, PINK STREAKER, from claiming 
the throne.  Tell me, is nothing sacred?  I have heard from unimpeachable sources 
that The Silver Chalice 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.  The most challenged warrior this turn 
was XCOM CHARLIE's warrior SANTA.  More fighters challenged him than challenged the 
Duelmaster!   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  The grave that DECEIVERS had dug for BEER BELLY may yet be filled 
with the body of THE SHARK'S MAN.  Seldom are the likes of this to be seen.  BEER 
BELLY lives still!  Had I not seen it, it would be hard to believe.  WARP 3 was sent 
to the Dark Arena and lived to tell about it!  Makes you think, no?  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.  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
