                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, friends and fiends, welcome to your friendly neighborhood spyreport.  
I doubt ALJAFIR will ever be the same.  Now keep the taverns open late tonight, for 
there are sorrows to drown for SURE, WHY NOT?, whose 1-0-0 this turn dropped them by 
4 into 10th.  FISH THANGS stable has parlayed this turn's 3-1-0 into a 7 space move 
up the rankings.  This brings them up to 3rd place.  Good work, guys!  And let's see, 
NORBURN PINE fought ARSE OF SPADES and gained 17 points and contributed to MIDDLE 
WAY's 2-3-0.  ARSE OF SPADES has lost to NORBURN PINE, falling 13 points, while 
helping make ROYAL PAIN a 1-4-0 turn.  JON challenged for the Duelmastership this 
turn, attempting to dethrone ROYAL PAIN's warrior.  Defending his title for another 
turn, PRINCE ALBERT kept ENFORCERS' warrior, JON, from claiming the throne.  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?   
     The crowd's roar, the smell of iron and leather, mixed with sweat, what more 
could a warrior ask of life?  Well, besides that.  I also notice that the THE 
SHOWOFFS stable was the most avoided team this turn.  Come on ALJAFIR, what are you 
afraid of?  And avoiding THE SHOWOFFS more than any other team we find FISH THANGS.  
ALJAFIR, are we going to accept, or respect this sort of thing?  The most challenged 
warrior this turn was MIDDLE WAY's warrior ULTRO PINKY.  More fighters challenged him 
than challenged the Duelmaster!  YOU CAN'T BEAT ME of THE SHOWOFFS had better have a 
good reason for challenging down 14 points in a challenge which he won.  I thought 
YOU CAN'T BEAT ME showed great skill and promise when he overcame REVOLUTION.  All 
right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     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...   
     Remember, blood on the purple robe does not change it from a purple robe.  Dare 
to fight bravely.  Always good to rest in ALJAFIR, but never good to wear out my 
welcome.  Look for me in future turns.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets to 
paper-- Alarond the Scribe

Jorja -- Last time I came back to Aljafir, you went inactive.  Please stick around
this time! =D -- alfredo, mgr. of Fish Thangs

Back from a 17-year layoff.  Let's see how this turns out. -- The Showoffs

Offenders -- I can't believe there is a team playing that was active when I was.
Looks like you just re-joined yourselves. -- The Showoffs

Six dead?  This is probably a VERY bad sign for Aljafir.  It will have to be
investigated.

One-four, and IDRINO, that <deleted>, got the win?  This is totally unfair. -- Gidjit
Hayes

This Is a Test -- I know you had good reasons, but still, you may have DOOMED me to
horrid experiences in an adventure, and I do NOT like that.  Oh, well, I suppose you
couldn't know how DEVIOUS Jorja's mind gets. -- Garret Jones

Prince Albert -- Really, you should become a total parry; then you could go around in
a can ALL THE TIME.  Which might help, because you aren't a winsome sight.  That
BEARD.  Ugh. -- Gidjit Hayes
P.S.  Do you clean your boots with it?

Teenie Whopper -- You're a cute little thing. -- Norburn Pine the Easily Besotted
P.S.  I hate it that the crowd is thrilled to see you beat me up.

Arse of Spades -- We couldn't let Pinky write you a personal, he was much too
personal about it. -- Gidjit Hayes

Hard Time Minnow -- Kinda big for a minnow, aren't you? -- Idrino Loup, preparing to
have Minnow Boullibaise or however that is spelled

     On behalf of the mailroom slaves, please, please, put your arena number on 
everything, including your personals and diplos!  
     All diplos must show the recipient's name, team name, and arena number.  
     Sometimes stuff gets misfiled, delayed, not printed, or not delivered because we 
don't know where it belongs.  Thank you.
