                                    TEAM SPOTLIGHT

                               Telorinthe Tailor Shoppe

     Aurora had just finished recording the measurements of the five assorted warriors 
of the newly activated Aaaarrgh Hammerz guild. 
     "You may be dismal," admonished the shapely Shagornan Elf Maiden, "but there is 
no reason for any of you to be dressing in a fashion that reflects your disheveled 
team record."  
     She gave each of them a comforting hug, as she began selecting fabric for their 
new clothes.  "Of course," she clucked, "Royal Rage Hammer has done more than her part 
as an original warrior to bring a winning record to the Telorinthe Arena sands.  
Therefore, it is only fitting that I design a Royal Purple Outfit for her, especially 
since the betting odds are favoring her to become the First Aaaarrgh Hammer to ascend 
to the Telorinthe Duelmaster Throne!"
     The only other warrior sporting a winning record on the Telorinthe Arena sands 
was Vengeance Hammer, who Aurora hugged and smiled sweetly, as she selected an 
appropriate fabric for the Ratani male fighter.
     However, she was no less particular with her favors to the remaining three with 
losing records on the Telorinthe Arena sands.  She gave hugs of encouragement to 
Vengeance Hammer, Groundhog Hammer and Valentine Hammer: assuring each one that Hammer 
would not be dispatching them to the Dark Arena.

                                      SPY REPORT

     I can't believe the violence in TELORINTHE!  I still haven't told Mom I'm 
writing Spyreports.  She'd have a cow!  Well, here we go...  Like, FIGHT SONG had to 
be so embarrassed when they got kicked off #1 spot by AAAARRGH HAMMERZ!  Way to go 
AAAARRGH HAMMERZ!  The guys at AAAARRGH HAMMERZ like really pulled together to get a 
4-1-0 this turn, moving up by 3.  MVP award for DONALD TRUMP?  BAD SIGNS' proud of 
him after beating GRAIL and getting 21 points.  Talk about yer major upsets!  GRAIL's 
match with DONALD TRUMP cost him a loss of 14 points!  The Duelmaster isn't going to 
stop just cause he's Number One!  TSUNAMI ALERT knows this.  It was Bloodfeuded by 
the Duelmaster.  Don't you think the Duelmaster is being unfair?  I think NOCTURNAL 
RITES should let TSUNAMI ALERT be Duelmaster for a while, without fighting about it.  
Who was the wiseguy that said TELORINTHE's Duelmaster was paying for drinks at The 
Swinging Aardvark?  Don't look at me!   
     So just why would someone becomes a warrior anyway?  It can't be for these 
really neat Spyreports can it?  The warriors of AAAARRGH HAMMERZ must be getting 
lonely.  They were the most avoided team.  Do you guys know something that I don't?  
Is there some deep dark secret why BAD SIGNS' been avoiding AAAARRGH HAMMERZ so much? 
Or is it just that they're too scared?  Like, is VALENTINE HAMMER popular, or what?  
She was challenged the most in all of TELORINTHE!  She's got a 2-9-0, is that good?  
People were asking me did MOTHER-IN-LAW REALLY challenge ROYAL RAGE HAMMER?  (all 
right, maybe they didn't, but it sounded good!) It wasn't a spectacular fight, or 
anything, but ROYAL RAGE HAMMER wants me to write about it since she defeated 
MOTHER-IN-LAW.  Satisfied?   
     What does a fighter fight for?  I mean, the crowds don't give a hoot if someone 
gets killed.  Not after four more fights.  D'ya think HAMMER KRINKER is feeling 
guilty for killing FIGHT SONG's SCOTT THE BRAVE, a mere boy?  Naah, I doubt it.  
NOCTURNAL RITES really fought hard against TSUNAMI ALERT.  That'll teach BAD SIGNS 
not to go and kill any of CHAPEL OF THE GHOULS' guys again, huh!  What if they had a 
fight and nobody showed up?  I'd be out of a job, that's what!!!   
     I really didn't, you know, study when I was a kid.  Who would've guessed I'd be 
a famous Spyreporter?  I gotta leave.  TELORINTHE is like such a dump, and you guys 
smell too much!  I had a fun time, see you later-- Debby Tonte
