                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, in MORDANT 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 WEIRD STUDENTS is pushed out of top team by COLORFUL, who came from 
5th with a 5-0-0 this turn.  Now keep the taverns open late tonight, for there are 
sorrows to drown for SUPER STARS R US, whose 0-0-0 this turn dropped them by 4 into 
7th.  COLORFUL stable has parlayed this turn's 5-0-0 into a 3 space move up the 
rankings.  This brings them up to 2nd place.  Good work, guys!  And let's see, LOVE 
PINK fought RAFFI THE GARROTE and gained 13 points and contributed to COLORFUL's 
5-0-0.  GAMAKATSU has lost to JMJ, falling 2 points, while helping make MANNEQUIN'S 
BEST a 2-1-1 turn.  Defending his title for another turn, G, LOOMIS kept RUN DMC's 
warrior, KING OF ROCK, from claiming the throne.  By the way, was that our Duelmaster 
that I saw last night, cramped under the table at Conan's Place?   
     He who challenges well, fights well.  He who avoids without cause, shall lose 
for good reasons.  My mama told me that one.   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  Had I not seen it, it would be hard to believe.  155131121127 was 
sent to the Dark Arena and lived to tell about it!  Makes you think, no?  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.   
     Thought for the day, a new sword shines bright, but the notched sword sings the 
sweetest.  Well, I'm burning daylight here in MORDANT and I've a long road ahead of 
me.  Happy Trails.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets to paper-- Alarond the 
Scribe
