                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, friends and fiends, welcome to your friendly neighborhood spyreport.  
I doubt ERINIKA will ever be the same.  And let's see, EXTORTION fought SALINDA RENN 
and gained 8 points and contributed to BLACKMAIL's 5-0-0.  SALINDA RENN has lost to 
EXTORTION, falling 4 points, while helping make MIDDLE WAY 18 a 3-2-0 turn.  The 
attempts to dethrone the Duelmaster have failed, and DEATH SUCKS remains ERINIKA'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 Swinging Aardvark until they win.  
Maybe?   
     He who challenges well, fights well.  He who avoids without cause, shall lose 
for good reasons.  My mama told me that one.  The most challenged warrior this turn 
was BLACKMAIL's warrior ADULTERY.  More fighters challenged her than challenged the 
Duelmaster!   
     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.   
     Thought for the day, a new sword shines bright, but the notched sword sings the 
sweetest.  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
