                                      SPY REPORT

     Busy, busy, busy, lots of things happening in VALAMANTIS this turn, and let's 
start with a look at some of the teams.  It seems the training can make the 
difference, as EVIL DEATH DUDES is pushed out of top team by RIO VISTANS, who came 
from 2nd with a 3-1-0 this turn.  Now keep the taverns open late tonight, for there 
are sorrows to drown for SINFUL SISTER, whose 0-0-0 this turn dropped them by 6 into 
11th.  BLOOD KNIGHTS stable has parlayed this turn's 3-2-0 into a 7 space move up the 
rankings.  This brings them up to 6th place.  Good work, guys!  The ALL ABOUT BASHERS 
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, EVIL WEEVIL fought SIR ALBERT and 
gained 36 points and contributed to EVIL DEATH DUDES' 2-3-1.  DARTH NIKILUS has lost 
to MACE TO YO FACE, falling 12 points, while helping make RANDOM SITH a 2-2-0 turn.  
Well done, VALAMANTIS, the Duelmaster was this turn's most challenged warrior.  
Perhaps DARTH TIMMY is not as thrilled, being challenged 4 times.  YOU OWE ME 1 
DOLLAR challenged for the Duelmastership this turn, attempting to dethrone EVIL DEATH 
DUDES' warrior.  And not without some honor, YOU OWE ME 1 DOLLAR now claims the title 
and throne of Duelmaster of VALAMANTIS.  Tell me, is nothing sacred?  I have heard 
from unimpeachable sources that Drake's Lodge uses trolls in their stew.  Talk about 
gristle!   
     I tell you, a green quarterstaff lasts longer than a seasoned sapling.  A basher 
friend of mine assures me this is true.  I also notice that the RIO VISTANS stable 
was the most avoided team this turn.  Come on VALAMANTIS, what are you afraid of?  
And avoiding RIO VISTANS more than any other team we find EVIL DEATH DUDES.  
VALAMANTIS, 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.  Banners at half mast, warriors, 
BLOOD KNIGHTS has lost SIR ALBERT, and you might say all of VALAMANTIS has felt the 
loss, except maybe EVIL DEATH DUDES.  Seriously now, is it really honorable for EVIL 
WEEVIL from EVIL DEATH DUDES to kill SIR ALBERT and give BLOOD KNIGHTS the chance to 
bloodfeud?  Mmmm, could be.  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.  Always good to rest in VALAMANTIS, but never good to wear out my 
welcome.  Look for me in future turns.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets to 
paper-- Alarond the Scribe

All -- AHHHH Victories.  Yes yes yes.... There will be celbration at the Blood nights
stable. -- Squire

Sentinel -- I do plan on staying around awhile.  You know, it's like my old
granddaddy used to say, if there's no wind for the sail, row the boat...  if you have
lemons make lemonade... oh hell, what am I saying, we just didn't win!!!  But we have
sharpened the blades and tightened the armor... LONG LIVE THE BLOOD KNIGHTS. --
Squire
P.S.  Oh, and to The Sentinel, appreciate the offer!

Evil Weevil, Berth, and T.T. -- Congrats on the promotion.  Do Valamantis well. --
Squire

All -- Just an FYI, Sir David and Sir Marton were sent to the DA because they got
caught being out after curfew. -- Squire

Private Idaho -- Sir Matthew has been revenged.  All debts are settled. -- Blood
Knights

Prostitute -- Way to hang tough!  You almost had me.  I'm sure we'll meet again. --
Sir Albert

All -- I forgot to give T.R. his sendoff last time, but here he is now.  11-9-10-17-
15-11-11, master init, ad ex rip, att, def.  Epee fav, which I never used and a H/H
rythym.  Nothing too spectacular but a solid lunger.  A 15-8 record is pretty good,
and in his only tourney he went 5-3 (adepts), which I thought was pretty solid for
his abilities.  Anyways, now he's off to retirement.  So long, T.R. -- Pauly

Squire -- I'm glad you were able to revenge your warrior.  Now I don't feel so bad
about ducking the last two turns of blood feud. -- Pauly

Sentinel -- I was surprised to find that you run the Evil Death Dudes.  I thought it
seemed like a team Death Stud would run.  Oh well, I never liked that guy anyway. --
Pauly
P.S.  Arg!!  I was gonna have Buzz attempt to shatter that iron grip of yours, but
I'm sitting him for the tourney.  Ever since the face I feel like I'm under some sort
of mind control.  *fight good, timed warriors*  *fight good, timed warriros*  Get out
of my head!

Nuln -- Well, I've had two straight 2-3s in Aradi, and I just discovered I went 2-3
in Shadowspire again.  I take comfort in the fact that I will definitely not go 2-3
in Valamantis, because I'm only fighting four guys. -- Pauly "2-3" Fallon

Nuln --  You're lobbying for the basher style has finally broken me.  One of my new
guys is a basher.  Thanks a lot. -- Pauly

Mace to Yo Face -- Ha, you're just jealous because I'm prettier than you are.
Hitting me won't help YOU, though.  You'll always be UGLY, because you go around
FROWNING all the time.  Probably a Basher thing. -- Donetta Faldour

Evil Weevil -- Euwh!  Bugs!  I hate bugs!  Euwh!  Get away from me! -- Bali Darras

Martavius -- Tsk.  A good TRY, but you Karnhorn types just don't grasp the fine
points of, well, anything.  Not your fault.  You were just born deficient in finesse.
-- Erfin Goram, secure in his elvish superiority

Large Marge -- Have you tried the grapefruit diet? -- Gabrella Imbro

What is Deftness? -- Beats me.  I never use the stuff, myself. -- Fronk Hurrace

Our congratulations to Evil Weevil and Bertha. -- the Middle Way

Dr. Baddas -- If you consider me good company, I WILL take it personally. -- Donetta
Faldour

The Smiter -- (sneer) -- Fratsfa Slave
