                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, friends and fiends, welcome to your friendly neighborhood spyreport.  
I doubt JURINE will ever be the same.  It seems the training can make the difference, 
as BLACK PEARL is pushed out of top team by FAVORITE GUYS, who came from 2nd with a 
1-3-0 this turn.  And let's see, KIT-KAT fought AFFLICTED and gained 29 points and 
contributed to ARENA FELINES' 2-0-0.  KETA has lost to CONVICTED ASSASSIN, falling 17 
points, while helping make FAVORITE GUYS a 1-3-0 turn.  Due to his absence and 
inability to defend the throne, STONE DOG has lost the title of Duelmaster.  We 
should ask AFFLICTED about the thrill of victory, and what being the new Duelmaster 
does for a warrior, she's now the one to ask.  Tell me, is nothing sacred?  I have 
heard from unimpeachable sources that The Dripping Blade uses trolls in their stew.  
Talk about gristle!   
     Oriental wise man once say, 'Hiding behind shields prevents proper sun tanning.' 
Inscrutable, but true.  I also notice that the BLACK PEARL stable was the most 
avoided team this turn.  Come on JURINE, what are you afraid of?  And guess who 
avoided BLACK PEARL stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was PATRIOTIC.  Anyone 
surprised?   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  Is it really true that JURINE has more dishwashers per capita that 
fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...   
     Thought for the day, a new sword shines bright, but the notched sword sings the 
sweetest.  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

Bladedancer -- Fancy moves are all well and good, but you need to start with the
basics, which for your style are NOT dancing around like that. -- Chillili Ches
