                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail SOLVEN!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed for your 
deeds.  And let's see, MENACE II fought CIVILIZED CRIMINAL and gained 20 points and 
contributed to SHADOW LANCERS' 3-2-0.  GYMNASTICS has lost to STONE FREE, falling 15 
points, while helping make AH FATHERHOOD a 0-2-0 turn.  And not without some honor, 
VAGABOND now claims the title and throne of Duelmaster of SOLVEN.  By the way, was 
that our Duelmaster that I saw last night, cramped under the table at The Victory 
Tavern?   
     Oriental wise man once say, 'Hiding behind shields prevents proper sun tanning.' 
Inscrutable, but true.  ARE YOU ? has cause to stand tall, as they were SOLVEN's most 
avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a team to beat.  And avoiding ARE YOU ? 
more than any other team we find SHADOW LANCERS.  SOLVEN, are we going to accept, or 
respect this sort of thing?  The most challenged warrior this turn was RED SCARE's 
warrior THE ROOSTER.  More fighters challenged it than challenged the Duelmaster!   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  The Victory Tavern declares a free round for THE ROOSTER and all of RED 
SCARE, for having revenged AH FATHERHOOD's FIRST DANCE for killing one of their 
comrades.  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 the sun next rises and my pen sets to 
paper-- Alarond the Scribe
