                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail ERINIKA!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed for your 
deeds.  It seems the training can make the difference, as MIDDLE WAY 18 is pushed out 
of top team by BLACKMAIL, who came from 2nd with a 2-0-0 this turn.  I understand 
that The Welcome Wench is buying the drinks for DREW'S BOYS II tonight, to honor 
their rise to 6th after this turns 2-0-0.  Hmmm.  And let's see, DEATH SUCKS fought 
LISA KAROL and gained 11 points and contributed to BLACKMAIL's 2-0-0.  LISA KAROL has 
lost to DEATH SUCKS, falling 6 points, while helping make MIDDLE WAY 18 a 1-4-0 turn. 
The attempts to dethrone the Duelmaster have failed, and BLACK EYE remains ERINIKA's 
top warrior for another turn.  By the way, was that our Duelmaster that I saw last 
night, cramped under the table at The Welcome Wench?   
     The crowd's roar, the smell of iron and leather, mixed with sweat, what more 
could a warrior ask of life?  Well, besides that.   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  Is it really true that ERINIKA has more dishwashers per capita that 
fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...   
     Remember, blood on the purple robe does not change it from a purple robe.  Dare 
to fight bravely.  Always good to rest in ERINIKA, but never good to wear out my 
welcome.  Look for me in future turns.  Until you see my quill in ERINIKA again, 
farewell-- Alarond the Scribe
