                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, in SNOWBOUND 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 WHAT GAUL! is pushed out of top team by OPEN SESAME, who came from 2nd 
with a 5-0-2 this turn.  And let's see, UNPATRIOTIX fought WHITER SHADE and gained 15 
points and contributed to WHAT GAUL!'s 4-1-1.  WHITER SHADE has lost to UNPATRIOTIX, 
falling 8 points, while helping make BOOK OF THOMAS a 2-1-0 turn.  This week's 
Duelmaster bout was between ICEWORM and our Duelmaster REMARKABLE WORD, making a Dark 
Arena Challenge.  The attempts to dethrone the Duelmaster have failed, and REMARKABLE 
WORD remains SNOWBOUND's top warrior for another turn.  Can someone confirm a rumor 
for me?  I hear the top team makes their losing fighters do dishes at The Victory 
Tavern until they win.  Maybe?   
     I tell you, a green quarterstaff lasts longer than a seasoned sapling.  A basher 
friend of mine assures me this is true.  I also notice that the MESOPOTAMIA stable 
was the most avoided team this turn.  Come on SNOWBOUND, what are you afraid of?  And 
guess who avoided MESOPOTAMIA stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was OPEN 
SESAME.  Anyone surprised?  Well, sports fans, take notice that BLOGG from OPEN 
SESAME was SNOWBOUND's most challenged warrior this turn.   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  The grave that OPEN SESAME had dug for REMARKABLE WORD may yet be filled 
with the body of ICEWORM.  Seldom are the likes of this to be seen.  REMARKABLE WORD 
lives still!  Is it really true that SNOWBOUND has more dishwashers per capita that 
fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...   
     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 the sun next rises and my pen sets to paper--
