                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, in VALAMANTIS 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, MERCURY 
fought STRIKE 4 and gained 22 points and contributed to CM - SCORPIO's 1-4-0.  STRIKE 
4 has lost to MERCURY, falling 16 points, while helping make STRIKER FORCE a 3-2-0 
turn.  Due to his absence and inability to defend the throne, CARELESS BEAR has lost 
the title of Duelmaster.  And not without some honor, STRIKE 3 now claims the title 
and throne of Duelmaster of VALAMANTIS.  Can someone confirm a rumor for me?  I hear 
the top team makes their losing fighters do dishes at Doom's Dome 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.   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  A brave warrior does not carry a red shield, he has nothing to cover 
or hide when the fight is over.  Consider well.   
     Thought for the day, a new sword shines bright, but the notched sword sings the 
sweetest.  Always good to rest in VALAMANTIS, 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

No standbys and, of course, an oh-fer turn.  Sometimes I despair of us all.  I know
we're basically target dummies, but couldn't we be WINNING target dummies at least
sometimes?  I raised that question with Jorja.  Once.  That was enough.  So... we do
our best with the strats we started with, and that's it.  I'm glad to be leaving. --
