                                      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 STRIKER FORCE is 
pushed out of top team by PUBLIC NUISANCES, who came from 2nd with a 4-1-0 this turn. 
On their very first turn, WEIRD STUDENTS had a 4-1-1, and with this kind of luck or 
skill, should do well.  Welcome to VALAMANTIS.  And let's see, CLEVER CLARK fought 
EMBEZZLING SCRIBE and gained 21 points and contributed to WEIRD STUDENTS' 4-1-1.  
NORTH STAR has lost to JAYWALKER, falling 18 points, while helping make CM - SCORPIO 
a 1-1-0 turn.  Defending his title for another turn, XI AQUILAE kept STRIKER FORCE's 
warrior, STRIKE 4, from claiming the throne.  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.  STRIKER FORCE has cause to stand tall, as 
they were VALAMANTIS' most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a team to 
beat.  And avoiding STRIKER FORCE 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 CM - SCORPIO's warrior VENUS.  More fighters 
challenged her than challenged the Duelmaster!   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  A brave warrior does not carry a red shield, he has nothing to cover 
or hide when the fight is over.  Consider well.   
     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 the sun next rises and my pen sets to paper-- 
Alarond the Scribe
