                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, in DAYLA KIV 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 MEDAL OF HONOR is pushed out of top team by I HATE TOURNEYS, who came 
from 2nd with a 3-0-1 this turn.  And let's see, FTF fought GREELO DUFFUS and gained 
15 points and contributed to I HATE TOURNEYS' 3-0-1.  VEAL SORENTO has lost to KORBIN 
TEN BARAN, falling 8 points, while helping make THE VENETIAN IV a 0-1-0 turn.  The 
attempts to dethrone the Duelmaster have failed, and TAX MAIL-IN remains DAYLA KIV's 
top warrior for another turn.  By the way, was that our Duelmaster that I saw last 
night, cramped under the table at The Crystal Wheel?   
     The crowd's roar, the smell of iron and leather, mixed with sweat, what more 
could a warrior ask of life?  Well, besides that.  MEDAL OF HONOR has cause to stand 
tall, as they were DAYLA KIV's most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a 
team to beat.  And guess who avoided MEDAL OF HONOR stable the most?  Believe it or 
not, it was I HATE TOURNEYS.  Anyone surprised?  Well, sports fans, take notice that 
KORBIN TEN BARAN from SAND DANCERS was DAYLA KIV's most challenged warrior this turn. 
     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.  I guess it was coming sooner or 
later, SAND DANCERS has lost GREELO DUFFUS, and DAYLA KIV is bound to miss him.  For 
a little while, at least.  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 DAYLA KIV, but never good to wear out my welcome.  
Look for me in future turns.  Until you see my quill in DAYLA KIV again, farewell-- 
Alarond the Scribe

Oh, gods, one-four!  No standbys, but the Snowballs we once defeated have now
defeated us.  I guess that's fair.  And Greelo ate some kind of veal that disagreed
with him intensely.  Well, you know, veal is the equivalent of a teenage cow, and you
KNOW what teenagers are like.  No wonder he didn't know what to make of it. -- Kogan
