                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, in ZORPUNT a quiet thief gets rich, but a quiet spymaster gets poor.  
So bring me ale and harken to my tidbits of news.  And let's see, BAMBI fought 
LADYBUG LEE and gained 13 points and contributed to GENTLE THINGS' 2-0-0.  LADYBUG 
LEE has lost to BAMBI, falling 9 points, while helping make KRILL CAVALRY a 1-4-0 
turn.  The attempts to dethrone the Duelmaster have failed, and ILL SUBLIMINAL 
remains ZORPUNT's top warrior for another turn.  By the way, was that our Duelmaster 
that I saw last night, cramped under the table at The Dripping Blade?   
     He who challenges well, fights well.  He who avoids without cause, shall lose 
for good reasons.  My mama told me that one.   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  The Dripping Blade declares a free round for BAMBI and all of GENTLE 
THINGS, for having revenged KRILL CAVALRY's LADYBUG LEE 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, ZORPUNT, the taverns have old wine, and young serving girls.  
Who could ask for more?  Well, I'm burning daylight here in ZORPUNT 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

John Ashcroft, Huge Twirling Man, and Baby Back Ribs. -- Jorja and Krill Cavalry

One-four and a death?  And Pony not around to explain it away, either.  We're really
going to miss Pony.  He took CARE of things. -- Little Smiff

I should really be the one speaking for the team, you know, but Smiffy will do fine. 
I'm letting him build his confidence. -- Clay Poole

I don't need to "build my confidence."  Clay is as stupid as mud. -- Little Smiff
