                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, in JHELUM a quiet thief gets rich, but a quiet spymaster gets poor.  
So bring me ale and harken to my tidbits of news.  And let's see, HARVEY fought 
GARDEN and gained 19 points and contributed to THE BAD BUNNIES' 2-0-1.  GARDEN has 
lost to HARVEY, falling 6 points, while helping make PEARL JAM a 1-2-0 turn.  
Defending his title for another turn, FLOPSY kept DOGS OF WAR's warrior, LEON FROM 
NAPA, from claiming the throne.  Tell me, is nothing sacred?  I have heard from 
unimpeachable sources that The Warty Toad uses trolls in their stew.  Talk about 
gristle!   
     He who challenges well, fights well.  He who avoids without cause, shall lose 
for good reasons.  My mama told me that one.   
     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.  I guess it was coming sooner or 
later, DOGS OF WAR has lost LEON FROM NAPA, and JHELUM is bound to miss him.  For a 
little while, at least.  A brave warrior does not carry a red shield, he has nothing 
to cover or hide when the fight is over.  Consider well.   
     Thought for the day, a new sword shines bright, but the notched sword sings the 
sweetest.  Well, I'm burning daylight here in JHELUM and I've a long road ahead of 
me.  Happy Trails.  Until you see my quill in JHELUM again, farewell-- Alarond the 
Scribe

Two-three and a death.  Well, of someone had to go, better Chas than even Cusser.
It'll be a relief to us all, frankly.  Thing is, when Chas was enrolling, the clerk
wanted to put him down as Chas the DUCK, and he didn't like that at all, but WE
laughed.  Well, it was funny!  He never forgave us. -- Leon from Napa
