                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, friends and fiends, welcome to your friendly neighborhood spyreport.  
I doubt ILLIS will ever be the same.  It seems the training can make the difference, 
as HANGOVERS is pushed out of top team by SHEWISH MUNCHIES, who came from 3rd with a 
3-1-0 this turn.  On their very first turn, YOUNG GUNS had a 4-1-0, and with this 
kind of luck or skill, should do well.  Welcome to ILLIS.  And let's see, TORTY 
fought HEATH BAR and gained 21 points and contributed to BEATRICE's 1-1-0.  HEATH BAR 
has lost to TORTY, falling 16 points, while helping make SHEWISH MUNCHIES a 3-1-0 
turn.  Due to hers absence and inability to defend the throne, BEATIE has lost the 
title of Duelmaster.  And all eyes were on TORTY this turn as she ascended to the 
throne of Duelmaster.  ILLIS has a new victor!  Tell me, is nothing sacred?  I have 
heard from unimpeachable sources that The Dripping Blade uses trolls in their stew.  
Talk about gristle!   
     He who challenges well, fights well.  He who avoids without cause, shall lose 
for good reasons.  My mama told me that one.  ISLANDERS 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 ISLANDERS stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was BEATRICE. 
Anyone surprised?   
     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.  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.  Well, I'm burning daylight here in ILLIS and I've a long road 
ahead of me.  Happy Trails.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets to paper-- 
Alarond the Scribe

Okay, the city is not perishing IMMEDIATELY, but that just means we get to WORRY
about it for a while.

Six total fights, one in the Dark Arena.  This is probably a sign of the slow
perishment of the city.  We went three-two, with two of the wins being over wimpy
standbys.  Beats losing, though. -- Fishhook
