                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail TARRGIR!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed for your 
deeds.  It seems the training can make the difference, as F-NO-ANT HAMMERZ is pushed 
out of top team by F-FZ-IZZLE, who came from 4th with a 4-1-0 this turn.  Now keep 
the taverns open late tonight, for there are sorrows to drown for F-NO-ANT HAMMERZ, 
whose 0-4-0 this turn dropped them by 6 into 7th.  D-LID-INQUISITION stable has 
parlayed this turn's 4-0-0 into a 5 space move up the rankings.  This brings them up 
to 3rd place.  Good work, guys!  The F-CDC DARC-CYIIIDE 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, PS-POS fought PR-AVISTA HAMMER and gained 22 points and 
contributed to D-LID-WASTELAND's 3-2-0.  LU-BANNOR has lost to LU-BUTCH-ER, falling 
17 points, while helping make A-GQ-BLOODGUARD a 0-1-0 turn.  Defending his title for 
another turn, ST-TOURNEY FLUFF kept D-LID-LBA LEGENDS' warrior, ST BIGFATHAIRYDEAL, 
from claiming the throne.  Tell me, is nothing sacred?  I have heard from 
unimpeachable sources that The Swinging Aardvark uses trolls in their stew.  Talk 
about gristle!   
     He who challenges well, fights well.  He who avoids without cause, shall lose 
for good reasons.  My mama told me that one.  I also notice that the 
D-LID-INQUISITION stable was the most avoided team this turn.  Come on TARRGIR, what 
are you afraid of?  And guess who avoided D-LID-INQUISITION stable the most?  Believe 
it or not, it was A-GQ-ANDORIAN POWER.  Anyone surprised?  Well, sports fans, take 
notice that TP-CARP from D-LID-BIGMEANFISH was TARRGIR's most challenged warrior this 
turn.  Well now, what do you expect when someone like ST-IZZLE from F-FZ-IZZLE 
challenges down 25 points to fight SL-INFERNAL of D-LID-MOB THUGS?  We're not 
surprised to hear that ST-IZZLE won victory over SL-INFERNAL, but I bet it would be 
interesting to hear why F-FZ-IZZLE made such a challenge.  Tsk, tsk, tsk.  PS-TURD 
BUNGLER, does your manager know you're challenging down 25 points to fight PS-APOS 
from D-LID-WASTELAND?  I thought challenges were for warriors, not cowards looking 
for easy wins.  PS-TURD BUNGLER overcame PS-APOS, is nothing sacred?  ST - 
MAGNANIMOUS from F-FZ-COOL WORDS took a risk this turn by bravely challenging up 28 
points in a challenge against TP-BLACK CRAPPIE.  Even though ST - MAGNANIMOUS lost 
the fight, he at least came away with a gain of 7 points for challenging on of 
D-LID-BIGMEANFISH.   
     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.  I guess it was coming sooner or 
later, D-LID-LBA LEGENDS has lost ST PHLEGM, and TARRGIR is bound to miss it.  For a 
little while, at least.  F-CDC-DEMONS, with any luck D-LID-LBA LEGENDS will 
successfully bloodfeud ST-GAZREK for killing such a warrior as ST PHLEGM.  Have a 
little decency, will ya?  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.  Well, I'm burning daylight here in TARRGIR and I've a long road ahead of 
me.  Happy Trails.  Until you see my quill in TARRGIR again, farewell-- Alarond the 
Scribe
