                             Notes from the arena champ.

     This, I did not expect.

                                        Duff

                                      SPY REPORT

     Busy, busy, busy, lots of things happening in ILLIS this turn, and let's start 
with a look at some of the teams.  Now keep the taverns open late tonight, for there 
are sorrows to drown for ILL AVENGERS, whose 0-0-0 this turn dropped them by 6 into 
12th.  DAMAGE INC. stable has parlayed this turn's 2-0-0 into a 6 space move up the 
rankings.  This brings them up to 6th place.  Good work, guys!  And let's see, THERE 
IS A GOD fought AMMER EAD and gained 17 points and contributed to BASHAHOLICS ANON's 
1-1-0.  ROSE SHELL has lost to CHURCH OF RISING SUN, falling 11 points, while helping 
make ISLANDERS a 1-4-0 turn.  Well done, ILLIS, the Duelmaster was this turn's most 
challenged warrior.  Perhaps DUFF is not as thrilled, being challenged 2 times.  SOUL 
SCOURGE challenged for the Duelmastership this turn, attempting to dethrone 
ISLANDERS' warrior.  And all eyes were on SOUL SCOURGE this turn as she ascended to 
the throne of Duelmaster.  ILLIS has a new victor!  By the way, was that our 
Duelmaster that I saw last night, cramped under the table at The Welcome Wench?   
     The crowd's roar, the smell of iron and leather, mixed with sweat, what more 
could a warrior ask of life?  Well, besides that.  ISLE OF SKYE has cause to stand 
tall, as they were ILLIS' most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a team to 
beat.  And guess who avoided ISLE OF SKYE stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was 
CHAPEL ROCK.  Anyone surprised?   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  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 ILLIS and I've a long road ahead of me. 
Happy Trails.  Until you see my quill in ILLIS again, farewell-- Alarond the Scribe
