                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, friends and fiends, welcome to your friendly neighborhood spyreport.  
I doubt LIN TIRIAN will ever be the same.  And let's see, SERGEANT 2 fought SILVER 
SLIM and gained 14 points and contributed to MEDAL OF HONOR Z2's 2-2-0.  SERGEANT 1 
has lost to ROCK HARDMAN, falling 8 points, while helping make MEDAL OF HONOR Z2 a 
2-2-0 turn.  This week's Duelmaster bout was between STONE GOLEM and our Duelmaster 
MONSTER MASH, making a Dark Arena Challenge.  The crowds were amazed this turn, as 
STONE GOLEM killed the Duelmaster, MONSTER MASH, leaving SHEWISH BUFFET in mourning.  
This incredible death has allowed, I might add, RIB IAYE from SHEWISH BUFFET to 
ascend to the throne of Duelmaster, and I hear DARK ARENA is not happy.  Can someone 
confirm a rumor for me?  I hear the top team makes their losing fighters do dishes at 
The Lost Hope Inn until they win.  Maybe?   
     Oriental wise man once say, 'Hiding behind shields prevents proper sun tanning.' 
Inscrutable, but true.  The most challenged warrior this turn was SAND DANCERS' 
warrior ROCK HARDMAN.  More fighters challenged him than challenged the Duelmaster!   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  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 you see my quill in LIN TIRIAN again, 
farewell-- Alarond the Scribe
