                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, in SHADOWSPIRE a quiet thief gets rich, but a quiet spymaster gets 
poor.  So bring me ale and harken to my tidbits of news.  I understand that The 
Welcome Wench is buying the drinks for ELECTRIC KOOL-AID tonight, to honor their rise 
to 12th after this turns 3-1-0.  Hmmm.  Our condolences (or sneers, as the case may 
be) go out to KATHOUSE for their drop to 21st from 9th.  A 0-5-0 can do that.  It 
doesn't rain, but it pours for THE DRAUGS this turn, a 1-4-0 causing a 13 flight drop 
in the team rankings.  Hand that team a dry towel.  The FUCHI OWNED guild has had a 
5-0-1 turn and deserves to be watched in the future.  You never know where this kind 
of thing can lead.  And let's see, BARON STONEWALL fought CONSORTIUM? and gained 23 
points and contributed to DRAGONBANE GUILD's 4-1-0.  STUMP has lost to SLIM, falling 
18 points, while helping make ERRATA a 3-2-0 turn.  ANVIL IRONFIST challenged for the 
Duelmastership this turn, attempting to dethrone BIG LAKE OUTCASTS' warrior.  And all 
eyes were on ANVIL IRONFIST this turn as he ascended to the throne of Duelmaster.  
SHADOWSPIRE has a new victor!  Tell me, is nothing sacred?  I have heard from 
unimpeachable sources that The Welcome Wench 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.  I also notice that the KELLUMBO'S 
KIDS stable was the most avoided team this turn.  Come on SHADOWSPIRE, what are you 
afraid of?  And avoiding KELLUMBO'S KIDS more than any other team we find CLAN 
LONGBEARD.  SHADOWSPIRE, are we going to accept, or respect this sort of thing?  
Well, sports fans, take notice that THAG from 4-LETTER CAVEMEN was SHADOWSPIRE's most 
challenged warrior this turn.  KRYSTA from CULT OF BACCHUS took a risk this turn by 
bravely challenging up 32 points in a challenge against IMPALA.  But when the dust 
settled, KRYSTA had lost to IMPALA, and CULT OF BACCHUS left KRYSTA doing chores when 
they went to the tavern.  Better luck next time.  Building dreams on hope, HUNTER 
challenged up 32 points this turn to take on SNAKE EYES from CHILDHOOD HEROES stable. 
And crowds were on their feet when HUNTER claimed a victory from SNAKE EYES, and now 
has 85 points for his efforts.  LIATH of OF WOLF AND MAN had better have a good 
reason for challenging down 10 points in a challenge which she won.  I thought LIATH 
showed great skill and promise when she beat ZIPPO.  All right, so I slept through 
it!  Big deal!   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  A farewell moment, if you please, CAKE DADDY of HOUSE OF HEARTS has 
been sent to the Dark Arena, and was carried out on his shield.  The grave that 
RODENT CLAN had dug for ALE MOUSE MERC may yet be filled with the body of SHEWISH 
GIANT.  Seldom are the likes of this to be seen.  ALE MOUSE MERC lives still!  I 
guess it was coming sooner or later, BATTLE GRUNTS has lost ROUGE, and SHADOWSPIRE is 
bound to miss her.  For a little while, at least.  Kudos go out to BRENDAN BEHAN this 
turn, for revenging LITERATE LOONS' bloodfeud against CLAN LONGBEARD's warrior ANGUS. 
Well done.  Congratulations go out to FUCHI OWNED, with NUYEN NICK revenging a 
bloodfeud against ROUGE of BATTLE GRUNTS.  The Welcome Wench declares a free round 
for CELEGDRAUG and all of THE DRAUGS, for having revenged THE MONGOLOIDS II's DJOHEY 
DJR. for killing one of their comrades.  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.   
     I like this place, SHADOWSPIRE, the taverns have old wine, and young serving 
girls.  Who could ask for more?  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 
SHADOWSPIRE again, farewell-- Alarond the Scribe

Bad Lass -- Not so bad after all.... -- India

Hunter -- With that record, I must say I was quite surprised at how good you looked,
not to mention how hard you hit. -- Nightbane

Kiryk -- If it makes you feel any better, the challenge only came because you are a
Warmaster. -- Tyra

Durg -- Your name must stand for:  Downchallenging, Ugly, Retarded Goober. -- Desiree

Edward Gorey -- Well done.  A style I can really appreciate.  You know what they say,
do one thing, and do it well. -- Kellumbo

Dragonbane Guild -- Nicely done on the 4-1 turn.  Looks like it is a race to get to
about 25 more wins or so. -- DK
P.S.  Let's not forget the race to be the first manager to graduate five warriors....

Fountain -- In the future, perhaps a rematch. -- Dexter

Sponge Bath -- My new master is a win or die type of manager, what can I say? --
Liath

All -- Welcome Grath, Warg and Dominatrix to the arena.  May they make your lives
miserable. -- Tripwire

Kellumbo -- Well spoken.  Great minds think alike. -- Tripwire

A sea of blood...what an ugly turn.  I didn't take part to the slaughter, but I would
like to express my condolences for the death of the valiant Grolsch.... -- Le
Pentarque

You are right, Rillion, our teams are very close and we have the same goal.  By the
way, the two last fights should/could have been yours!  Better luck next time.  I
guess we will meet quite often. -- Le Pentarque

Angrendraug -- What do you mean by "almost"? -- The Small Cat

Farewell, Burm, you were quite something! -- Le Pentarque

La Pentarchie -- Congrats on knocking me off as the top team last turn.  Hopefully I
can return the favor on turn 24. -- Vanek, Manager of Warmasters

Onyx -- Nice learns there.  That has to ease the pain of a loss at least a little
bit. -- Felix

Kat -- Sorry. -- Decimus

Tyra -- I bet when you challenged me, you thought I'd be easy to beat.  I mean, you
only had a 12 FE advantage.  Boy I wish I could have seen the look on your face
behind that helm when I hit you and caused you to go desperate in minute 7.
Fortunately for you, you eventually outlasted me.  Funny thing is though, with a few
changes to my strategy, I am convinced I can actually beat you despite the big
experience gap!  Keep your eyes peeled, you maybe seeing me again soon! -- Kiryk

Kellumbo -- Too many challenges your way?  I've only gotten off 3 challenges against
you in 15 turns.  When your team consists of 3 scum, of course every Aimed Blow in
the arena is going to be gunning for ya!  I'm no exception.  Its not personal, just
business. -- Vanek

Elephant -- Which arena official did you pay off to get that juicy 22 vs. 12 FE
fight? -- DeGotti

Angus -- Thanks but it didn't work so well vs. Baron Stonewall! -- Flor

Slim -- Sometimes you need a bit of luck! -- Chromian

Swinetiger -- I trust you won't make me wait too long -- Kat

India -- I don't recommend that you pursue that route again. -- Bad Lass

Mad Ratter -- What?  Were you late for an appointment or something? -- Perfect
Poremba

Duck -- Your dalliance sealed Naughtia's fate.  She dances by torchlight tonight. --
Kat
