                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail ROCANIS!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed for your 
deeds.  It seems the training can make the difference, as INCONSISTENT FURY is pushed 
out of top team by MIDDLE WAY 20, who came from 2nd with a 3-2-0 this turn.  And 
let's see, POW! fought TIKI LA'BANE and gained 23 points and contributed to THEM's 
2-1-0.  TIKI LA'BANE has lost to POW!, falling 19 points, while helping make 
INCONSISTENT FURY a 1-4-0 turn.  This turn MANZA WIGGLES Dark Arena Challenged 
MAINAKHA-TE MASTER in what was ROCANIS' Title bout.  The crowds were amazed this 
turn, as MAINAKHA-TE MASTER killed the Duelmaster, MANZA WIGGLES, leaving 
INCONSISTENT FURY in mourning.  This incredible death has allowed, I might add, 
RATHNOK MULROOT from INCONSISTENT FURY to ascend to the throne of Duelmaster, and I 
hear DARK ARENA is not happy.  By the way, was that our Duelmaster that I saw last 
night, cramped under the table at The Grub & Rub Bar and Bistro?   
     Oriental wise man once say, 'Hiding behind shields prevents proper sun tanning.' 
Inscrutable, but true.  I also notice that the THEM stable was the most avoided team 
this turn.  Come on ROCANIS, what are you afraid of?  And guess who avoided THEM 
stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was INCONSISTENT FURY.  Anyone surprised?  
The most challenged warrior this turn was INCONSISTENT FURY's warrior TAM TAM 
KA'BLAM.  More fighters challenged him than challenged the Duelmaster!   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  Kudos go out to KULGAN this turn, for revenging MEN OF STEEL's bloodfeud 
against INCONSISTENT FURY's warrior TAM TAM KA'BLAM.  Well done.  Is it really true 
that ROCANIS has more dishwashers per capita that fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...  
     I like this place, ROCANIS, the taverns have old wine, and young serving girls.  
Who could ask for more?  Always good to rest in ROCANIS, but never good to wear out 
my welcome.  Look for me in future turns.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets 
to paper-- Alarond the Scribe

Manza Wiggles -- You're starting to show signs of actual consistency.  Could this not
be dangerous for you? -- Forlis Hooler

Tam Tam Ka'Blam -- I do try.  Pay attention, and I'll teach you what I can. -- Elise
Goudge

Tiki La'Bane -- Tinted visor on my helm? -- Leelayla Norin

We congratulate Manza Wiggles! -- Jorja and the Middle Way

These Priests of Mytori aren't as tough as we thought they'd be. -- Chebob Erle and
Dobie Frome
P.S.  They don't teach worth spit, though.  Must be due to us not being followers of
Mytori, right?

The Kung-Fu Master said I was slim, and then he lost to me.  Great!  Very discerning
man. -- Leelayla Norin

Rathnok Mulroot -- Your turn, I guess. -- Forlis Hooler

Bam! -- That's what an artificial elevation in ranking will do to you.  Not that the
