                                      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.  WRATHMEN 2 stable has parlayed this turn's 1-0-0 
into a 7 space move up the rankings.  This brings them up to 12th place.  Good work, 
guys!  The GASHOUSE GANG guild has had a 4-0-1 turn and deserves to be watched in the 
future.  You never know where this kind of thing can lead.  And let's see, LAND-MINE 
HOPSCOTCH fought STINK and gained 15 points and contributed to POOR COMBINATIONS' 
1-0-0.  KLEPTO MAN has lost to JUNE CLEAVER, falling 9 points, while helping make WHO 
DA MAN? a 0-3-0 turn.  Due to hers absence and inability to defend the throne, DOLT 
has lost the title of Duelmaster.  We should ask LAND-MINE HOPSCOTCH about the thrill 
of victory, and what being the new Duelmaster does for a warrior, it's now the one to 
ask.  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?   
     Oriental wise man once say, 'Hiding behind shields prevents proper sun tanning.' 
Inscrutable, but true.  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 SUPER STARS.  ERINIKA, are we going to 
accept, or respect this sort of thing?  The most challenged warrior this turn was WHO 
DA MAN?'s warrior T-4 STRAIN.  More fighters challenged him 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.  ROLEN must have surprised GASHOUSE 
GANG this turn, after they sent him to the Dark Arena, but the Dark Arena couldn't 
hold him!  WAY BACK WHEN made what looks to be a tough decision this turn, as they 
sent KITTY, with a record of 19-1-0, to KITTY death.  Farewell, hers.  WAY BACK WHEN 
has some questions to answer.  Like 'why did you kill your fighter, KITTY, who had a 
record of 19-1-0?' Our condolences go to PRODIGAL SUN, posthumously, seeing as SUPER 
STARS did not revenge DOLT from DUDS for killing PRODIGAL SUN.  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 ERINIKA, 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
