                                      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 FLOYD'S BREWERY is 
pushed out of top team by GARBAGE PAIL KIDS, who came from 2nd with a 2-3-0 this 
turn.  And let's see, JUGGERNAUT fought DANG LEN and gained 24 points and contributed 
to MOB RULE's 1-0-0.  DANG LEN has lost to JUGGERNAUT, falling 20 points, while 
helping make GARBAGE PAIL KIDS a 2-3-0 turn.  Due to his absence and inability to 
defend the throne, SHLITZ has lost the title of Duelmaster.  And not without some 
honor, HARBERT KREIGH now claims the title and throne of Duelmaster of VALAMANTIS.  
Can someone confirm a rumor for me?  I hear the top team makes their losing fighters 
do dishes at The Wasteland Bar until they win.  Maybe?   
     He who challenges well, fights well.  He who avoids without cause, shall lose 
for good reasons.  My mama told me that one.  FLOYD'S BREWERY has cause to stand 
tall, as they were VALAMANTIS' most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a 
team to beat.  And guess who avoided FLOYD'S BREWERY stable the most?  Believe it or 
not, it was CM - SCORPIO.  Anyone surprised?  Well, sports fans, take notice that 
ODER QUIN from MIDDLE WAY 10 was VALAMANTIS' most challenged warrior this turn.  CM - 
HERMES of CM - SCORPIO had better have a good reason for challenging down 8 points in 
a challenge which he won.  I thought CM - HERMES showed great skill and promise when 
he overcame ODER QUIN.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     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...   
     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 -- Just to clarify things... this ain't no goldurn Andorian arena, and when ya
run a buncha losers like I do, it ain't gonna be treated like no namby-pamby koochi-
koochi place.  Nope. -- Crapmaster

     Of course not.  Koochikoochikoo is in Aruak City, not here.

Shlitz be some right good brew.  Done chugged a few in my day.  Might chug some more.
Anyhoo, kudos to the master brewer. -- Crapmaster

Bony Tony -- You calcium-modified creap!  Hurting me wasn't very bright of you, but
then, you are not a star. -- CM-Star

Oder Quinn -- I thought there was something about you that smelled.  Not only did it
stink but you can't even spell odor right. -- CM-Hermes

Embezzling Scribe -- You didn't get away with MY money, pal.  Fie on you. -- CM-
Neptune

Dorks!  One and all--dorks!  Letting a Crapmaster team do that to you?  Ultra-dorks!
-- Crapmaster

Hermes -- Who said you could wear winged shoes into the arena?  It makes you too
fast. -- Oder Quin, embarrassingly out-paced

Hoegarden -- Sorry, not me.  Brown thumbs. -- Lon Olbert
