                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, friends and fiends, welcome to your friendly neighborhood spyreport.  
I doubt VALAMANTIS will ever be the same.  It seems the training can make the 
difference, as BLOOD KNIGHTS is pushed out of top team by RANDOM SITH, who came from 
2nd with a 3-2-0 this turn.  Now keep the taverns open late tonight, for there are 
sorrows to drown for EVIL DEATH DUDES, whose 0-0-0 this turn dropped them by 5 into 
8th.  And let's see, SIR WILLIAM fought DARTH SCION and gained 15 points and 
contributed to BLOOD KNIGHTS' 2-3-0.  SIR PAUL has lost to DARTH MALEK, falling 10 
points, while helping make BLOOD KNIGHTS a 2-3-0 turn.  The attempts to dethrone the 
Duelmaster have failed, and SIR KEVIN remains VALAMANTIS' top warrior for another 
turn.  By the way, was that our Duelmaster that I saw last night, cramped under the 
table at Doom's Dome?   
     The crowd's roar, the smell of iron and leather, mixed with sweat, what more 
could a warrior ask of life?  Well, besides that.  BLOOD KNIGHTS has cause to stand 
tall, as they were VALAMANTIS' most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a 
team to beat.  And avoiding BLOOD KNIGHTS more than any other team we find 
SLAUGHTERHOUSE 5.  VALAMANTIS, are we going to accept, or respect this sort of thing? 
The most challenged warrior this turn was MIDDLE WAY 10's warrior BALI DARRAS.  More 
fighters challenged her than challenged the Duelmaster!  SIR RICK from BLOOD KNIGHTS 
took a risk this turn by bravely challenging up 29 points in a challenge against 
BROWN.  Even though SIR RICK lost the fight, he at least came away with a gain of 2 
points for challenging on of COLORS.   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  Is it really true that VALAMANTIS has more dishwashers per capita that 
fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...   
     I like this place, VALAMANTIS, the taverns have old wine, and young serving 
girls.  Who could ask for more?  Well, I'm burning daylight here in VALAMANTIS 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

Valamantis -- Hail good Valamantis!  A glorious day is had when one can return to
familiar surroundings, after an absence far too long, and feel as though they had
never left.  While my engagements required me elsewhere never once did I worry that I
would not see this fair city yet again.  Valamantis has been, and will continue to
be, part of my life that represents a new beginning.  A new hope.  A new life.  And
so it is with the utmost respect and honor that I announce my return to the
gladiatorial game here in Valamantis.  Here in this realm where I truly belong.  A
glorious day indeed it is as the Den of Swords has returned! -- Tmoney (the Chaos
Bringer), mgr. of the Den of Swords

"Those in the stands shift their attention to the warriors."  It says so right there
in print, so it must be true.  I wondered what was so heavy, and it was the weight of
their attention.  Good thing there wasn't a bigger crowd. -- Bali Darras

Blue -- If I hadn't been staggering under the weight of everyone's attention, I might
have done better.  Or, of course, maybe not, but I MIGHT have. -- Bali Darras

Orange -- A difficult color to wear, but when reddened, it is very...cheerful.  Even
a little exciting. -- Donetta Faldour, color consultant

Sir Kevin -- Ah, a title match!  No wonder those in the stands shifted their
attention to us!  This is the sort of thing they come to see.  Ah...it would
doubtless have been more impressing and fan-riveting if you'd let me strike a blow or
two, however ineffective?  I can't imagine why I didn't. -- Erfin Goram the puzzled

Erfin -- How about "general ineptitude"? -- Bali

Bali -- I would prefer not to place such a concept in the public's mind, thank you
very much. -- Erfin
P.S.  They throw things.

Ixion -- Oh, well, if you're LEGENDARY, of course I can't take you.  I'm not an
iconoclast. -- Gabrella Imbro

Huma -- Drat.  That blow to the elbow really did me in.  I'm going to have to get
elbow-pads or something.  The rest of it I can take. -- Gormoduc Irn
