                                      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.  It seems the training can make the 
difference, as GATES OF FIRE is pushed out of top team by NUMB-ERS, who came from 2nd 
with a 4-1-0 this turn.  And let's see, ONE fought DIENEKES and gained 16 points and 
contributed to NUMB-ERS' 4-1-0.  MARDEL TEN VAREN has lost to ROOSTER, falling 9 
points, while helping make SAND DANCERS a 1-4-0 turn.  Due to his absence and 
inability to defend the throne, ALEXANDROS has lost the title of Duelmaster.  And all 
eyes were on ONE this turn as she ascended to the throne of Duelmaster.  DAYLA KIV 
has a new victor!  Tell me, is nothing sacred?  I have heard from unimpeachable 
sources that The Crystal Wheel uses trolls in their stew.  Talk about gristle!   
     He who challenges well, fights well.  He who avoids without cause, shall lose 
for good reasons.  My mama told me that one.   
     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.   
     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 you see my quill in DAYLA KIV again, 
farewell-- Alarond the Scribe
