                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, friends and fiends, welcome to your friendly neighborhood spyreport.  
I doubt THE GREENHOUSE will ever be the same.  BLOOD AND GUTS! stable has parlayed 
this turn's 3-1-0 into a 3 space move up the rankings.  This brings them up to 2nd 
place.  Good work, guys!  And not without some honor, CONFLICT now claims the title 
and throne of Duelmaster of THE GREENHOUSE.  Tell me, is nothing sacred?  I have 
heard from unimpeachable sources that The Victory Tavern uses trolls in their stew.  
Talk about gristle!   
     The crowd's roar, the smell of iron and leather, mixed with sweat, what more 
could a warrior ask of life?  Well, besides that.  JADE WARRIORS has cause to stand 
tall, as they were THE GREENHOUSE's most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is 
a team to beat.  And avoiding JADE WARRIORS more than any other team we find ZEN 
WARRIORS.  THE GREENHOUSE, are we going to accept, or respect this sort of thing?  
Well, sports fans, take notice that 451 DEGREES from PYROMANIA was THE GREENHOUSE's 
most challenged warrior this turn.  In a brave attempt, HOT STUFF from PYROMANIA 
challenged up 21 points to fight FAT LIP from the OTTO'S PARTS stable.  HOT STUFF 
perhaps got its just desserts, seeing as it beat FAT LIP and ended up with 88 
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.  Is it really true that THE 
GREENHOUSE has more dishwashers per capita that fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...   
     Thought for the day, a new sword shines bright, but the notched sword sings the 
sweetest.  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

Ah shucks, I would have recommended 451 Degrees for Duelmaster.  He deserves it and,
besides, he's HOT!  I want some of that hot body. -- Torturing Tulip

Whoops!  What is this?  A 3-1 turn and a 4-1 turn when it doesn't really count?
When's the next quest?  (wink)  Meanwhile, bring your warriors on over to The Flower
shoppe and give them a real live treat! -- Lady Fern

Zoum?  Weird challenge?  Why I just wanted to get close to you.  Real close.  (wink)
Tee hee. -- Gloating Gardenia

Epyc Death -- Welcome!  Me and the gals hope your stay in Fratsfa is long and
prosperous.  To reintroduce your warriors and their studly manager to the pleasures
of The Flower Shoppe, I will grant you a 20 per cent discount on the flowers (The
yellow roses are especially lovely this time of year.) downstairs and a two-for-one
special upstairs.  The gals will be waiting anxiously. -- Lady Fern, Flower Girls

Torak -- Why, certainly.  And soon too, I hope. -- Lady Fern

451 Degrees -- You selected me, smothered me, and whipped me!  I love that in a man!
-- Savage Snowball

Fat Lip -- Why, thanks to your hottie manager for the challenge.  He must have known
what we both really wanted; for me--a win; for you--the release.  What a fine manager
you have. -- Torturing Tulip

Areopolite -- How could I have asked for anything more? -- Gloating Gardenia

Silia, Silia, Silia, what would I do without you?  You make my life so fulfilled. --
Hateful Hasta

Tuscan Flame -- We lit up the night together, didn't we?!  Thanks for letting me
finish on top, Hon. -- Caustic Crocus

Good luck to all Fratsfans in The Mailer.  Unfortunately this time my girls will be
doing their thing at home. -- Lady Fern

No duelmaster!!  Well, who will represent our beautiful arena?  The tulip or the
fire? -- LP

Thanks, Lady Fern, I hope we will make the next Quest a smooth and greater event.  By
the way, let's do this properly, I will not take three girls, but the whole five! --
LP

Tulip -- Sid you whip the cream yourself??  Let me wonder... -- Two

Torturing Tulip -- I now consider my other lip swollen. -- Fat Lip

Kitiara -- Keep training us like that and we probably won't be sticking around here
much longer. -- Runny Nose

Leou -- I thank you for a fine fight and dedicate my victory to my uncle Glasteglon,
who died two years ago in this very arena.  May he find comfort in the arms of our
family in the great beyond. -- Glon's Pity

Disco Inferno -- Laugh at me, will you!  Well, he who laughs first, laugh... no, no.
He who laughs loudest?  Just stop laughing. -- Jazmina

I am Warrior -- Shold there be a next time, don't count on my being so ill prepared.
An epee!  What was I thinking? -- Arrahe

     That you wanted shiskebab?

Drastial -- You've bested me.  Drinks are on me, my good dwarf. -- Dandor's Shame

Salient -- Don't get too cocky.  I'm a little rusty after two years. -- Anishka
