                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, in ILLIS 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 CHAPEL ROCK is pushed out of top team by AUXILIO AB ALTO, who came 
from 4th with a 3-2-0 this turn.  AUXILIO AB ALTO stable has parlayed this turn's 
3-2-0 into a 3 space move up the rankings.  This brings them up to 1st place.  Good 
work, guys!  The SHEWISH MUNCHIES guild has had a 3-1-0 turn and deserves to be 
watched in the future.  You never know where this kind of thing can lead.  And let's 
see, CARMA fought VENAL CLERK and gained 20 points and contributed to AUXILIO AB 
ALTO's 3-2-0.  ASTARIELLE has lost to TITUS PULLO, falling 3 points, while helping 
make AUXILIO AB ALTO a 3-2-0 turn.  RECOVERY SETBACK challenged for the 
Duelmastership this turn, attempting to dethrone YOUNG GUNS' warrior.  And not 
without some honor, RECOVERY SETBACK now claims the title and throne of Duelmaster of 
ILLIS.  By the way, was that our Duelmaster that I saw last night, cramped under the 
table at The Swinging Aardvark?   
     The crowd's roar, the smell of iron and leather, mixed with sweat, what more 
could a warrior ask of life?  Well, besides that.  CHAPEL ROCK has cause to stand 
tall, as they were ILLIS' most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a team to 
beat.  And guess who avoided CHAPEL ROCK stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was 
BASHAHOLICS ANON.  Anyone surprised?  The most challenged warrior this turn was 
SHEWISH MUNCHIES' warrior BABY RUTH.  More fighters challenged her than challenged 
the Duelmaster!  In a brave attempt, ARGIEL from AUXILIO AB ALTO challenged up 19 
points to fight BABY RUTH from the SHEWISH MUNCHIES stable.  ARGIEL perhaps got his 
just desserts, seeing as he lost to BABY RUTH and ended up with 43 recognition 
points.   
     The Dark Arena is for those who cannot win, not who cannot lose with grace.  
Dignity in life or death is the warrior's creed.  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, ILLIS, the taverns have old wine, and young serving girls.  
Who could ask for more?  Well, I'm burning daylight here in ILLIS and I've a long 
road ahead of me.  Happy Trails.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets to paper--

I am undertaking a fiction-writing project on the Patreon website, under my own name
of Judith Solberg.  It isn't the kind of story I might put in the newsletter, but I
think some of you might enjoy it.  I don't know how much you can see if you just
cruise by, but they tell me it's up and open. -- Jorja
