                                      SPY REPORT

     Busy, busy, busy, lots of things happening in BLACKSTONE this turn, and let's 
start with a look at some of the teams.  I understand that The Swinging Aardvark is 
buying the drinks for PASSPORT REQUIRED tonight, to honor their rise to 1st after 
this turns 3-0-0.  Hmmm.  Now, what did these guys have for breakfast this morning?  
SERPENTS HOLD 6 has turned a 1-0-0 into 18th place from 38th.  Give me the recipe!  I 
want to know who's buying the drinks for who tonight at The Swinging Aardvark, seeing 
as SUPERIOR FORCES 4A06's 2-1-0 has earned them 32nd place in the ranks.  I 
understand that The Swinging Aardvark is buying the drinks for SUPERIOR FORCES 4A08 
tonight, to honor their rise to 33rd after this turns 1-0-0.  Hmmm.  Now, what did 
these guys have for breakfast this morning?  SUPERIOR FORCES 4A01 has turned a 1-0-0 
into 34th place from 97th.  Give me the recipe!  Our condolences (or sneers, as the 
case may be) go out to PHILANTHROPISTS13 for their drop to 59th from 23rd.  A 0-1-0 
can do that.  It doesn't rain, but it pours for PHILANTHROPISTS39 this turn, a 0-1-0 
causing a 39 flight drop in the team rankings.  Hand that team a dry towel.  I want 
to know who's buying the drinks for who tonight at The Swinging Aardvark, seeing as 
ZOMBIE SQUAD 2's 9-36-2 has earned them 64th place in the ranks.  I understand that 
The Swinging Aardvark is buying the drinks for FORMER BOSSES tonight, to honor their 
rise to 67th after this turns 0-1-0.  Hmmm.  SUPE FORCES 0905 must be either in pain, 
or numb, having dropped from 37th to 94th this turn, with a 0-1-0 acting as the 
weight.  And let's see, PRISONER 485 fought UNWED GRANNY and gained 37 points and 
contributed to DUNGEON CELL 48's 1-0-0.  D?S? OPEN? has lost to WYL WILDLEAF, falling 
16 points, while helping make KEEP YOU GUESSING a 0-1-0 turn.  Due to hers absence 
and inability to defend the throne, CART GIRLS has lost the title of Duelmaster.  And 
not without some honor, WYL WILDLEAF now claims the title and throne of Duelmaster of 
BLACKSTONE.  Can someone confirm a rumor for me?  I hear the top team makes their 
losing fighters do dishes at The Swinging Aardvark until they win.  Maybe?   
     Oriental wise man once say, 'Hiding behind shields prevents proper sun tanning.' 
Inscrutable, but true.  WITTY COMEBACK has cause to stand tall, as they were 
BLACKSTONE's most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a team to beat.  And 
avoiding WITTY COMEBACK more than any other team we find KEEP YOU GUESSING.  
BLACKSTONE, are we going to accept, or respect this sort of thing?  The most 
challenged warrior this turn was FORMER BOSSES' warrior HUGH KASSLE.  More fighters 
challenged him than challenged the Duelmaster!   
     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 BLACKSTONE again, 
farewell-- Alarond the Scribe
