                                      SPY REPORT

     Busy, busy, busy, lots of things happening in ERINIKA this turn, and let's start 
with a look at some of the teams.  It seems the training can make the difference, as 
DUDS is pushed out of top team by CALENDAR GIRLS, who came from 6th with a 5-0-0 this 
turn.  FEAR FACTORY 6 stable has parlayed this turn's 1-0-1 into a 6 space move up 
the rankings.  This brings them up to 8th place.  Good work, guys!  The CALENDAR 
GIRLS guild has had a 5-0-0 turn and deserves to be watched in the future.  You never 
know where this kind of thing can lead.  On their very first turn, MAJOR LEAGUERS had 
a 5-0-3, and with this kind of luck or skill, should do well.  Welcome to ERINIKA.  
ROLEN challenged for the Duelmastership this turn, attempting to dethrone DUDS' 
warrior.  The attempts to dethrone the Duelmaster have failed, and DOLT 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.  I also notice that the THE BEGINNING 
stable was the most avoided team this turn.  Come on ERINIKA, what are you afraid of? 
And avoiding THE BEGINNING more than any other team we find CALENDAR GIRLS.  ERINIKA, 
are we going to accept, or respect this sort of thing?  Well, sports fans, take 
notice that T-4 STRAIN from WHO DA MAN? was ERINIKA's most challenged warrior this 
turn.  In a brave attempt, JUNE CLEAVER from CALENDAR GIRLS challenged up 19 points 
to fight T-4 STRAIN from the WHO DA MAN? stable.  JUNE CLEAVER perhaps got hers just 
desserts, seeing as she defeated T-4 STRAIN and ended up with 66 recognition points.  
     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 wish to point out for SUPER STARS 
that there is but a single turn before DUDS and their warrior, DOLT, will get away 
with killing PRODIGAL SUN.  The Swinging Aardvark declares a free round for STINK and 
all of DUDS, for having revenged WRATHMEN 2's MAROHM for killing one of their 
comrades.  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.  Well, I'm burning daylight here in ERINIKA and I've a long road 
ahead of me.  Happy Trails.  Until you see my quill in ERINIKA again, farewell--
