                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail FRATSFA!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed for your 
deeds.  And let's see, MOE SKEETO fought SUN QIAN and gained 25 points and 
contributed to GARBAGE PAIL KIDS' 1-0-0.  HU YAN ZHUO has lost to PETULANT PANSY, 
falling 8 points, while helping make WAH CHING a 0-3-0 turn.  GLOATING GARDENIA 
challenged for the Duelmastership this turn, attempting to dethrone DRAGONS GUARD 
II's warrior.  And all eyes were on GLOATING GARDENIA this turn as she ascended to 
the throne of Duelmaster.  FRATSFA has a new victor!  By the way, was that our 
Duelmaster that I saw last night, cramped under the table at The Victory Tavern?   
     I tell you, a green quarterstaff lasts longer than a seasoned sapling.  A basher 
friend of mine assures me this is true.  FLOWER GIRLS has cause to stand tall, as 
they were FRATSFA's most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a team to beat. 
And avoiding FLOWER GIRLS more than any other team we find BASH BROS ROAD SIGN.  
FRATSFA, are we going to accept, or respect this sort of thing?  Well, sports fans, 
take notice that HU YAN ZHUO from WAH CHING was FRATSFA's most challenged warrior 
this turn.   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  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.  Always good to rest in FRATSFA, but never good to wear out my 
welcome.  Look for me in future turns.  Until you see my quill in FRATSFA again, 
farewell-- Alarond the Scribe
