                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, friends and fiends, welcome to your friendly neighborhood spyreport.  
I doubt VALAMANTIS will ever be the same.  GRIM OBITUARY stable has parlayed this 
turn's 4-1-1 into a 3 space move up the rankings.  This brings them up to 3rd place.  
Good work, guys!  And let's see, ZAIN GRIMEYE fought CHEA EDEL and gained 18 points 
and contributed to GRIM OBITUARY's 4-1-1.  CHEA EDEL has lost to ZAIN GRIMEYE, 
falling 16 points, while helping make MIDDLE WAY 10 a 3-2-0 turn.  Well done, 
VALAMANTIS, the Duelmaster was this turn's most challenged warrior.  Perhaps IED is 
not as thrilled, being challenged 2 times.  JAGGED SHIV challenged for the 
Duelmastership this turn, attempting to dethrone EOD's warrior.  Somebody's not going 
to like this, (then again, somebody will), but our Duelmaster, IED, has died, and 
JAGGED SHIV has killed him.  Tell me, is nothing sacred?  I have heard from 
unimpeachable sources that The Wasteland Bar 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 THE BEARS stable was the most avoided 
team this turn.  Come on VALAMANTIS, what are you afraid of?  And avoiding THE BEARS 
more than any other team we find GRIM OBITUARY.  VALAMANTIS, are we going to accept, 
or respect this sort of thing?  OGRISH NOCLARR of GRIM OBITUARY had better have a 
good reason for challenging down 9 points in a challenge which he won.  I thought 
OGRISH NOCLARR showed great skill and promise when he bested ISOMBARD KORL.  All 
right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     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.  Is it really true that VALAMANTIS 
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.  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
