                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, friends and fiends, welcome to your friendly neighborhood spyreport.  
I doubt TROCAR will ever be the same.  It seems the training can make the difference, 
as TRADERS OF TROCAR is pushed out of top team by STREET-SOLDIERS, who came from 2nd 
with a 2-2-1 this turn.  And let's see, NO-STICK TAPE fought KORASIM and gained 17 
points and contributed to USELESS TOOLS' 4-1-2.  DAWUD has lost to YAHOO WAHOO, 
falling 11 points, while helping make SAI FULLAH a 0-2-0 turn.  This turn RUBBER 
BULLET Dark Arena Challenged CAPTIVE RIRORNI in what was TROCAR's Title bout.  The 
attempts to dethrone the Duelmaster have failed, and RUBBER BULLET remains TROCAR's 
top warrior for another turn.  Tell me, is nothing sacred?  I have heard from 
unimpeachable sources that The Welcome Wench 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.  I also notice that the SAI FULLAH 
stable was the most avoided team this turn.  Come on TROCAR, what are you afraid of?  
And avoiding SAI FULLAH more than any other team we find USELESS TOOLS.  TROCAR, are 
we going to accept, or respect this sort of thing?  Well, sports fans, take notice 
that FIRST OCCASION from EXTRADITION was TROCAR's most challenged warrior this turn.  
BLAZE of STREET-SOLDIERS had better have a good reason for challenging down 9 points 
in a challenge which he lost.  I thought BLAZE showed great skill and promise when he 
was bested by SOUL MEET SUN.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     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.  The grave that USELESS TOOLS had 
dug for RUBBER BULLET may yet be filled with the body of CAPTIVE RIRORNI.  Seldom are 
the likes of this to be seen.  RUBBER BULLET lives still!  Had I not seen it, it 
would be hard to believe.  A.O. HELL was sent to the Dark Arena and lived to tell 
about it!  Makes you think, no?  Is it really true that TROCAR has more dishwashers 
per capita that fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...   
     Remember, blood on the purple robe does not change it from a purple robe.  Dare 
to fight bravely.  It's been nice chatting with you, until we meet again, keep your 
swords sharp and your hammers heavy.  Until you see my quill in TROCAR again, 
farewell-- Alarond the Scribe

Sai Fullah, Sai Fullah, Sai Fullah... Guess who?  Yes, it is me, the team that you
fear so much that you stop plaing DM 28.  There is no place to run to now, so let's
fight. -- Street-Soldiers

Mateen -- I have one, maybe two, or three words I must say to you!  "You must bleed,
Mateen." -- Hell Boy

Dawud -- I'm coming for you soon. -- Hell Girl

I will accept all challenges from any warrior that thinks they can fight, so step on
the battle sand and test me. -- Timeout

Last Occasion -- Blame that on my manager, he told me to fight hard or don't come
back.  I thought about killing you at first, but I change my mind, instead I just toy
with you. -- Hell Boy
P.S.  Make this fight your (last occasion) or I will kill you next time.

First Occasion -- My manager named me (Timeout) for two reasons only.  First reason,
to bully on the Extradition team.  Second reason, to slap you around and watch you
fall on your face.  (smile) -- Timeout

Soul Meet Sun -- If you had some (soul), you would of move your feet a lot better.  I
lied, much better.  And stay out the sun it's slowing down. -- Blaze
P.S.  Next time (soul meets grave).

Man Meet Sun -- I could not tell if you was (man or woman), next time open your eyes
when you fight me. -- Hell Girl
P.S.  Blame that beating on my cheating man.

Extradition -- Do you want some more?  I told you I'm too good for your team. --
Darkface
P.S.  So, 5, 10 what happens?

Mateen -- I will be seeing you very very soon. -- Hell Boy
P.S.  Let the games begin.

Dawud -- I can't wait to slap you around a few times and watch you bleed. -- Hell
Girl

Sai Fullah -- Guess what?  I'm here now to show you I'm the best. -- Darkface
P.S.  Did you get my letter in the mail?

Allerdae Chan -- A brand of soft dring.  How did you know?  The actual name is
"[sorry, can't read this]."  I strongly caution you against opening another can as my
teammates might not be so merciful next time. -- Khalil's Ghost

Allerdae Chan -- True to word, you were available for a bloodfeud.  It might help
next time if you bring your fight.  Just a thought. -- Mateen

Samildar -- I agree.  You didn't need that.  Unfortunately, I did. -- Mateen

Street Soldiers -- Thus far, I've only seen one soldier.  Shouldn't the team name be
Street Soldier?  Next time bring a quality team. -- Sai Fullah

Well met, Darkface!  Your warriors served you good this month; it is only a shame I
have other plans!  Until the ring next calls, godspeed!
P.S.  You never can trust a devil--not now, not ever!  O.S. it is, ha!

Allerdae Chan -- Didn't think that humility was part of your repertoire.  So goes the
Ratanian stereotype. -- Mateen

Samildar -- Am I to assume that the last bout was your statement?  Well... I
definitely heard you. -- Mateen

"Street Soldiers" -- ???  Yeah, right.  In any event, welcome "Street Soldiers,"
Extradition (Extinction perhaps?), and Useless Tools (Useless Weapons?).

Rubber Bullet -- I am so glad you won that!  Thinking of something to say was getting
to be a real strain. -- Korasim
P.S.  Are you by any chance related to Rubber Baby Buggy-Bumper?  Quite the shapely
gal.

A.O. Hell -- You can say that again, with ribbons on it. -- Vardin Abeq

Mateen -- Armor is your friend. -- Samildar

Dawud -- Well done. -- allerdae Chan

Huh, glad *I* don't have to patrol the lake.  I hate little boats. -- Emnar Gorin

Our congratulations to the graduating Useless Tools.  May you be happily useless in
Crysalis. -- the Traders of Trocar
