                                      SPY REPORT

     Busy, busy, busy, lots of things happening in TOBIR this turn, and let's start 
with a look at some of the teams.  It seems the training can make the difference, as 
THE DOGHOUSE is pushed out of top team by MENTOR BLISS, who came from 2nd with a 
4-1-0 this turn.  And let's see, FONZANOON fought HAHA HOUND and gained 14 points and 
contributed to THE DEATH SQUAD's 3-2-1.  HAHA HOUND has lost to FONZANOON, falling 7 
points, while helping make THE DOGHOUSE a 1-4-0 turn.  And not without some honor, 
IGNORANCE now claims the title and throne of Duelmaster of TOBIR.  By the way, was 
that our Duelmaster that I saw last night, cramped under the table at The Deeproot 
Inn?   
     Oriental wise man once say, 'Hiding behind shields prevents proper sun tanning.' 
Inscrutable, but true.  I also notice that the WU-TANG FOREVER stable was the most 
avoided team this turn.  Come on TOBIR, what are you afraid of?  And guess who 
avoided WU-TANG FOREVER stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was MENTOR BLISS.  
Anyone surprised?  The most challenged warrior this turn was THE DOGHOUSE's warrior 
SPIKE.  More fighters challenged him than challenged the Duelmaster!  I don't know 
about you, but DAISY challenging down 35 points to THE DOGHOUSE's SPIKE, is not 
really worthy of MENTOR BLISS.  I thought challenges were for warriors, not cowards 
looking for easy wins.  DAISY bested SPIKE, is nothing sacred?  Well now, what do you 
expect when someone like KAMIN from MENTOR BLISS challenges down 24 points to fight 
CAPPADONNA of WU-TANG FOREVER?  We're not surprised to hear that KAMIN defeated 
CAPPADONNA, but I bet it would be interesting to hear why MENTOR BLISS made such a 
challenge.   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  I guess it was coming sooner or later, WU-TANG FOREVER has lost 
PERPENDICULAR, and TOBIR is bound to miss him.  For a little while, at least.  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 TOBIR 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
