                                      SPY REPORT

     Busy, busy, busy, lots of things happening in DAL SHANG this turn, and let's 
start with a look at some of the teams.  It seems the training can make the 
difference, as SAND DANCERS is pushed out of top team by THE MOTHERSHIP CE, who came 
from 2nd with a 2-0-0 this turn.  The LH CREW guild has had a 3-1-0 turn and deserves 
to be watched in the future.  You never know where this kind of thing can lead.  And 
let's see, NAS fought KALDAN TEN KARAN and gained 24 points and contributed to LH 
CREW's 3-1-0.  KALDAN TEN KARAN has lost to NAS, falling 8 points, while helping make 
SAND DANCERS a 2-3-0 turn.  The attempts to dethrone the Duelmaster have failed, and 
IRONIC TWIST remains DAL SHANG's top warrior for another turn.  Can someone confirm a 
rumor for me?  I hear the top team makes their losing fighters do dishes at The 
Blazing Unicorn 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.   
     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.  Will THE MOTHERSHIP CE get away 
with THE BLUE PILL having killed DILBERT of CUBICLE CRUSADERS?  One more turn, and 
the bloodfeud's over, at least officially.  Is it really true that DAL SHANG 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 DAL SHANG and I've a long road ahead of 
me.  Happy Trails.  Until you see my quill in DAL SHANG again, farewell-- Alarond the 
Scribe
