Thanks to Kat for another exciting "punch-up".  I'm glad to see that you're mixing
things up a little.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, friends and fiends, welcome to your friendly neighborhood spyreport.  
I doubt KYR'TERR will ever be the same.  It seems the training can make the 
difference, as THE FURIOUS FIVE is pushed out of top team by NIGHTHAWKS, who came 
from 2nd with a 1-2-1 this turn.  And let's see, LEGAL MAN fought AYE OF THE NEEDLE 
and gained 17 points and contributed to EQUALLY DAMAGED's 1-0-0.  SLYHAWK has lost to 
EYE OF THE NEEDLE, falling 4 points, while helping make NIGHTHAWKS a 1-2-1 turn.  The 
attempts to dethrone the Duelmaster have failed, and SOLAR SISTER remains KYR'TERR'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 Warty Toad until they win.  Maybe?  
     Oriental wise man once say, 'Hiding behind shields prevents proper sun tanning.' 
Inscrutable, but true.  CYNICAL DELUSIONS 2 has cause to stand tall, as they were 
KYR'TERR's most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a team to beat.  And 
avoiding CYNICAL DELUSIONS 2 more than any other team we find NIGHTHAWKS.  KYR'TERR, 
are we going to accept, or respect this sort of thing?   
     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.  We'd like to remind certain teams 
not to rob the graves of their enemies.  You know who you are; and it's considered 
rude.   
     Remember, blood on the purple robe does not change it from a purple robe.  Dare 
to fight bravely.  Always good to rest in KYR'TERR, 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

     This in my invitation to all managers  who wish to prove their mettle against
managers from all over Alastari.  We have limited TP's in this contest to one a team

hence the Andorian arena.  Good luck to all who come to prove their skills.  "May
