                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, in VEASTIAN 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 DOLI CAPAX is pushed out of top team by GIRLS GIRLS GIRLS, who came 
from 2nd with a 1-4-0 this turn.  On their very first turn, COLLEGE RADIO had a 
3-0-0, and with this kind of luck or skill, should do well.  Welcome to VEASTIAN.  
And let's see, SHARON STONE fought SNICKERING ENEMY and gained 23 points and 
contributed to GIRLS GIRLS GIRLS' 1-4-0.  SNICKERING ENEMY has lost to SHARON STONE, 
falling 17 points, while helping make AMERKIN INJUNS a 1-1-0 turn.  And not without 
some honor, GRAZING PHEASANT now claims the title and throne of Duelmaster of 
VEASTIAN.  Can someone confirm a rumor for me?  I hear the top team makes their 
losing fighters do dishes at The Welcome Wench until they win.  Maybe?   
     Oriental wise man once say, 'Hiding behind shields prevents proper sun tanning.' 
Inscrutable, but true.   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  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.   
     Thought for the day, a new sword shines bright, but the notched sword sings the 
sweetest.  It's been nice chatting with you, until we meet again, keep your swords 
sharp and your hammers heavy.  Until you see my quill in VEASTIAN again, farewell-- 
Alarond the Scribe
