                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, friends and fiends, welcome to your friendly neighborhood spyreport.  
I doubt ARADI will ever be the same.  The THE ELITE guild has had a 4-1-0 turn and 
deserves to be watched in the future.  You never know where this kind of thing can 
lead.  And let's see, THE BLUNDERDOG fought ALLAWALLA and gained 24 points and 
contributed to RED DOG GANG's 2-3-0.  ALLAWALLA has lost to THE BLUNDERDOG, falling 
20 points, while helping make UNNAMEABLES a 2-2-0 turn.  The attempts to dethrone the 
Duelmaster have failed, and CRAYONS remains ARADI's top warrior for another turn.  
Can someone confirm a rumor for me?  I hear the top team makes their losing fighters 
do dishes at The Blind Cyclops Inn until they win.  Maybe?   
     The crowd's roar, the smell of iron and leather, mixed with sweat, what more 
could a warrior ask of life?  Well, besides that.  RED DOG GANG has cause to stand 
tall, as they were ARADI's most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a team 
to beat.  And avoiding RED DOG GANG more than any other team we find THE ELITE.  
ARADI, are we going to accept, or respect this sort of thing?   
     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.  A brave warrior does not carry a 
red shield, he has nothing to cover or hide when the fight is over.  Consider well.   
     I like this place, ARADI, the taverns have old wine, and young serving girls.  
Who could ask for more?  It's been nice chatting with you, until we meet again, keep 
your swords sharp and your hammers heavy.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets 
to paper-- Alarond the Scribe

Allawalla -- It's been a while since I've had a good fight.  Me beard's been itching
for someone worthy of me blades.  So quit runnin' from me, coward! -- Zolo

Hao Lao Loo -- WTF?!  How did you transform yourself into such an ugly, smaller dog?!
Anywho, good fight. -- Lady Aksana

Fourst Dog -- I must've forgotten my weapon, or I just don't like warflails. *smirk*
-- Finbar

Duckett -- *smiles*  Nice fight, even though you have a tendancy to trash talk during
the fight. *laughs* -- Kitana

One-four, not our day.  Well, the new moon, you know.  Who wants to howl when there's
no moon?  And this new Dog, Hao Lao Loo... he wants to eat the weirdest stuff!  I
mean, we're Dogs, we eat lots of things, but... shark fins and bird's nests?  Not a
Dog-like diet, if you ask ME. -- Spot
