                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, in ALJAFIR 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 QUEENSRYCHE is pushed out of top team by ALL THINGS FLOYD, who came 
from 3rd with a 2-0-0 this turn.  Now keep the taverns open late tonight, for there 
are sorrows to drown for QUEENSRYCHE, whose 1-1-0 this turn dropped them by 4 into 
5th.  And let's see, THE SHINS fought VENOMOUS CONCUBINE and gained 13 points and 
contributed to BODY OF MUSIC's 1-0-0.  JET CITY WOMAN has lost to HURRICANE FLOYD, 
falling 2 points, while helping make QUEENSRYCHE a 1-1-0 turn.  Due to his absence 
and inability to defend the throne, MINDCRIME has lost the title of Duelmaster.  We 
should ask T.G.I. FLOYD'S about the thrill of victory, and what being the new 
Duelmaster does for a warrior, it's now the one to ask.  Can someone confirm a rumor 
for me?  I hear the top team makes their losing fighters do dishes at The Vile Vizier 
until they win.  Maybe?   
     I tell you, a green quarterstaff lasts longer than a seasoned sapling.  A basher 
friend of mine assures me this is true.  I also notice that the ALL THINGS FLOYD 
stable was the most avoided team this turn.  Come on ALJAFIR, what are you afraid of? 
And guess who avoided ALL THINGS FLOYD stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was 
NERDS RULE!.  Anyone surprised?   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  Is it really true that ALJAFIR has more dishwashers per capita that 
fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...   
     Thought for the day, a new sword shines bright, but the notched sword sings the 
sweetest.  Always good to rest in ALJAFIR, but never good to wear out my welcome.  
Look for me in future turns.  Until you see my quill in ALJAFIR again, farewell-- 
Alarond the Scribe
