                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail JURINE!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed for your 
deeds.  And let's see, MARCUS fought CHAM DUGAN and gained 15 points and contributed 
to CLAN GHOST BEARS' 3-1-0.  CHAM DUGAN has lost to MARCUS, falling 9 points, while 
helping make MIDDLE WAY 16 a 2-2-0 turn.  The attempts to dethrone the Duelmaster 
have failed, and LOCKENLOAD remains JURINE's top warrior for another turn.  Tell me, 
is nothing sacred?  I have heard from unimpeachable sources that The Warty Toad 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.   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  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.  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

Marcus -- Well, it looks like it's down to just our folks and yours.  How anybody can
call this an arena is beyond me!  Still, some kind of official "fight personal" seems
called for here.  Um.  How about, "It isn't often one sees a Shew that fits the name.
Why, you're big enough and shaggy enough to actually BE a bear." -- Cham Duggan
P.S.  Five kills seems excessive.

Aletha -- Ah!  A win is always acceptable, my thanks. -- Xavan Yole

Fratsfa Slave.  Oh, yes, indeed.  It would appear that Cham forgot the standbys in
his calculation of who was still here to fight.  Of course, the Fratsfa Slave is
pathetic, so maybe he doesn't count? -- Zoe Alden

Glacier -- Better get it while you can, what with the weather warming up and all. --
Takole Urm
P.S.  And we both retain perfect records.  How thrilling.
