                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, in DAYLA KIV a quiet thief gets rich, but a quiet spymaster gets poor. 
So bring me ale and harken to my tidbits of news.  And let's see, LURA TYL ZURIS 
fought SPIRIT HOUND and gained 15 points and contributed to SAND DANCERS' 3-2-0.  
SAND CRAPPER has lost to KRISSARA, falling 9 points, while helping make ARENA FELINES 
a 0-2-0 turn.  We should ask SLEEPWALKER about the thrill of victory, and what being 
the new Duelmaster does for a warrior, he's now the one to ask.  Tell me, is nothing 
sacred?  I have heard from unimpeachable sources that The Crystal Wheel uses trolls 
in their stew.  Talk about gristle!   
     The crowd's roar, the smell of iron and leather, mixed with sweat, what more 
could a warrior ask of life?  Well, besides that.   
     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.  Banners at half mast, warriors, 
SAND DANCERS has lost TELGAN TEN VORH, and you might say all of DAYLA KIV has felt 
the loss, except maybe DAYLA KIV.  A brave warrior does not carry a red shield, he 
has nothing to cover or hide when the fight is over.  Consider well.   
     Remember, blood on the purple robe does not change it from a purple robe.  Dare 
to fight bravely.  It's been nice chatting with you, until we meet again, keep your 
swords sharp and your hammers heavy.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets to 
paper-- Alarond the Scribe

Sleepwalker -- Try not to wake up anytime soon, because this sleepwalking bit is
working for you. -- Korba Klee

Spirit Hound -- Well, THAT was a joke, and it was on you.  Only your teammate gets
away with sleepwalking, kid. -- Telgan ten Vorh

Starbuck -- Ah, a favorite with us.  Very good, in fact. -- Lura tyl Zuris
P.S.  But you seemed to be having a little trouble staying awake, which is odd,
considering.

Sandman -- If that's the kind of sand you use, no wonder nobody wants to get near
you. -- Jujuble

Sand Crapper -- Huh.  Well, one can hope. -- Krissara, never intended to be a
handmaiden to cats

All -- I support Vendetta Cartel's observation of The Dark Knights!  If war is
declared on V.C. by The Dark Knights, then war is also declared on The Dark Knights
of the Desolate Empire by The Avengers of Light!  We have been quietly awaiting such
a chance to expose ourselves (all interested parties contact me c/o The Barbarians:
DM 31, Attn: Timothias)!  Come, Vendetta Cartel, let us show these broke-down
"Knights" what true warriors are! -- Gemini Goldphoenix, Overlord of The Avengers of
Light
