                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, friends and fiends, welcome to your friendly neighborhood spyreport.  
I doubt SOLVEN will ever be the same.  It seems the training can make the difference, 
as ARE YOU ? is pushed out of top team by 80'S DISCO, who came from 3rd with a 2-1-0 
this turn.  And let's see, SECOND MATE fought BLOOD CLOT and gained 23 points and 
contributed to SEA DOGS' 1-0-0.  CONFUSION has lost to ALIEN, falling 11 points, 
while helping make 80'S DISCO a 2-1-0 turn.  And all eyes were on SILVER SEAS this 
turn as he ascended to the throne of Duelmaster.  SOLVEN has a new victor!  By the 
way, was that our Duelmaster that I saw last night, cramped under the table at The 
Victory Tavern?   
     He who challenges well, fights well.  He who avoids without cause, shall lose 
for good reasons.  My mama told me that one.  I also notice that the ARE YOU ? stable 
was the most avoided team this turn.  Come on SOLVEN, what are you afraid of?  And 
avoiding ARE YOU ? more than any other team we find 80'S DISCO.  SOLVEN, are we going 
to accept, or respect this sort of thing?   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  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.   
     I like this place, SOLVEN, the taverns have old wine, and young serving girls.  
Who could ask for more?  Always good to rest in SOLVEN, but never good to wear out my 
welcome.  Look for me in future turns.  Until you see my quill in SOLVEN again, 
farewell-- Alarond the Scribe

Our congratulations to Hard Luck Woman. -- Jorja and those who walk the Middle Way

I was told, seriously, I was told that personals would be curtailed because of cold
toes.  Since when are personals written with toes?  Three-two for us today, and I got
a whole string of awards, which *I* think is something to talk about.  But I've got
my orders. -- Nyssa Rye
