                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, in ERINIKA 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 MIDDLE WAY 18 is pushed out of top team by WORLDWIDE GORE, who came 
from 3rd with a 4-1-0 this turn.  Now keep the taverns open late tonight, for there 
are sorrows to drown for BASH BROS WASTE, whose 0-0-0 this turn dropped them by 6 
into 15th.  And let's see, THE BLACK DEATH fought DRUGS and gained 29 points and 
contributed to DARQUE WATERS' 2-3-1.  This turn F.U.B.A.R. challenged URSULA ZAROFF 
in what was ERINIKA's Title bout.  Defending his title for another turn, F.U.B.A.R. 
kept MIDDLE WAY 18's warrior, URSULA ZAROFF, from claiming the throne.  By the way, 
was that our Duelmaster that I saw last night, cramped under the table at The Welcome 
Wench?   
     Oriental wise man once say, 'Hiding behind shields prevents proper sun tanning.' 
Inscrutable, but true.  DARQUE WATERS has cause to stand tall, as they were ERINIKA's 
most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a team to beat.  And avoiding 
DARQUE WATERS more than any other team we find WORLDWIDE GORE.  ERINIKA, are we going 
to accept, or respect this sort of thing?  Well, sports fans, take notice that 
RAEMOND PURR from MIDDLE WAY 18 was ERINIKA's most challenged warrior this turn.  THE 
BIG BANG of THE BEGINNING had better have a good reason for challenging down 15 
points in a challenge which he lost.  I thought THE BIG BANG showed great skill and 
promise when he was bested by RAEMOND PURR.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big 
deal!   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  Banners at half mast, warriors, THREE BLIND VICES has lost DRUGS, and you 
might say all of ERINIKA has felt the loss, except maybe DARQUE WATERS.  The bigger 
they are, as they say.  And what I say is that THE BLACK DEATH had better watch out 
for THREE BLIND VICES, seeing as DRUGS felled he this turn.  A brave warrior does not 
carry a red shield, he has nothing to cover or hide when the fight is over.  Consider 
well.   
     Remember, blood on the purple robe does not change it from a purple robe.  Dare 
to fight bravely.  Always good to rest in ERINIKA, 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
