                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail VALAMANTIS!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed for 
your deeds.  It seems the training can make the difference, as CM - SCORPIO is pushed 
out of top team by FLOYD'S BREWERY, who came from 2nd with a 4-0-0 this turn.  And 
let's see, HOEGARDEN fought LON OLBERT and gained 17 points and contributed to 
FLOYD'S BREWERY's 4-0-0.  LUCKY has lost to NERVOUS NELLIE, falling 8 points, while 
helping make ZOMBIE SQUAD a 1-3-0 turn.  And not without some honor, SHLITZ now 
claims the title and throne of Duelmaster of VALAMANTIS.  Tell me, is nothing sacred? 
I have heard from unimpeachable sources that The Aradi Alyia uses trolls in their 
stew.  Talk about gristle!   
     The crowd's roar, the smell of iron and leather, mixed with sweat, what more 
could a warrior ask of life?  Well, besides that.  I also notice that the FLOYD'S 
BREWERY stable was the most avoided team this turn.  Come on VALAMANTIS, what are you 
afraid of?  And avoiding FLOYD'S BREWERY more than any other team we find CM - 
SCORPIO.  VALAMANTIS, are we going to accept, or respect this sort of thing?  The 
most challenged warrior this turn was MIDDLE WAY 10's warrior ODER QUIN.  More 
fighters challenged him than challenged the Duelmaster!   
     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.   
     Thought for the day, a new sword shines bright, but the notched sword sings the 
sweetest.  Always good to rest in VALAMANTIS, but never good to wear out my welcome.  
Look for me in future turns.  Until you see my quill in VALAMANTIS again, farewell-- 
Alarond the Scribe
