                                      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 NEW YORK is pushed out of top team by KIWI CONNECTIONS, who came from 
5th with a 2-0-0 this turn.  TOTAL CHAOS stable has parlayed this turn's 2-3-0 into a 
5 space move up the rankings.  This brings them up to 9th place.  Good work, guys!  
And let's see, ABSOLUTELY DEVOID fought EMBEZZLING SCRIBE and gained 15 points and 
contributed to DARK AS DAY's 5-0-0.  ERNIE GUUL has lost to SUGAR HILL GANG, falling 
8 points, while helping make THE ZOO a 1-4-0 turn.  Defending hers title for another 
turn, PANAMA OATS kept TOTAL CHAOS' warrior, TOBEORNOTTOBE, from claiming the throne. 
By the way, was that our Duelmaster that I saw last night, cramped under the table at 
The Welcome Wench?   
     He who challenges well, fights well.  He who avoids without cause, shall lose 
for good reasons.  My mama told me that one.  WS BATS '05 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 guess who avoided WS BATS '05 stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was 
TOTAL CHAOS.  Anyone surprised?   
     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.   
     I like this place, KYR'TERR, the taverns have old wine, and young serving girls. 
Who could ask for more?  Always good to rest in KYR'TERR, but never good to wear out 
my welcome.  Look for me in future turns.  Until you see my quill in KYR'TERR again, 
farewell-- Alarond the Scribe
