                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail AMEN-TEI!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed for your 
deeds.  Our last turn's Duelmaster has lost, folks, lost to M. CHARDINEE, and JANICE 
DERBY has made the way for a new Duelmaster!  With JANICE DERBY clearing the throne, 
WAYFARERS of POOR THING takes a proud seat as AMEN-TEI's new Duelmaster, by virtue of 
recognition points.  Can someone confirm a rumor for me?  I hear the top team makes 
their losing fighters do dishes at The Warty Toad until they win.  Maybe?   
     The crowd's roar, the smell of iron and leather, mixed with sweat, what more 
could a warrior ask of life?  Well, besides that.  GARBAGE PAIL KIDS has cause to 
stand tall, as they were AMEN-TEI's most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is 
a team to beat.  And avoiding GARBAGE PAIL KIDS more than any other team we find 
STARRY KNIGHTS.  AMEN-TEI, are we going to accept, or respect this sort of thing?  
The most challenged warrior this turn was WAYFARERS' warrior POOR THING.  More 
fighters challenged it than challenged the Duelmaster!  PFC 3 of MEDAL OF HONOR J3 
had better have a good reason for challenging down 14 points in a challenge which he 
lost.  I thought PFC 3 showed great skill and promise when he was defeated by TOMAS 
KATT.  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.  A brave warrior does not carry a 
red shield, he has nothing to cover or hide when the fight is over.  Consider well.   
     Remember, blood on the purple robe does not change it from a purple robe.  Dare 
to fight bravely.  It's been nice chatting with you, until we meet again, keep your 
swords sharp and your hammers heavy.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets to 
paper-- Alarond the Scribe

Still!  Apparently I have to do EVERYTHING here today!  Which being so, I just WILL.
