                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, friends and fiends, welcome to your friendly neighborhood spyreport.  
I doubt LIN TIRIAN will ever be the same.  And let's see, GENTLE BORIS fought 
DISHONEST JUSTICE and gained 14 points and contributed to SAND DANCERS' 4-1-0.  
VEILED POISON has lost to SERGEANT 3, falling 6 points, while helping make DEATH 
PENALTY a 0-5-0 turn.  Our last turn's Duelmaster has lost, folks, lost to VENEMOUS 
CONCUBINE, and HOLLOWPOINT has made the way for a new Duelmaster!  With HOLLOWPOINT 
clearing the throne, MEDAL OF HONOR Z2 of SERGEANT 3 takes a proud seat as LIN 
TIRIAN's new Duelmaster, by virtue of recognition points.  Can someone confirm a 
rumor for me?  I hear the top team makes their losing fighters do dishes at The Lost 
Hope Inn until they win.  Maybe?   
     The crowd's roar, the smell of iron and leather, mixed with sweat, what more 
could a warrior ask of life?  Well, besides that.   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  LUCREZIA BARON has departed LIN TIRIAN, leaving SAND DANCERS without 
their 7-5-0 warrior.  Question, just what was hers team doing at the taverns last 
night?  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.   
     Remember, blood on the purple robe does not change it from a purple robe.  Dare 
to fight bravely.  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-- Alarond the Scribe

                                     PERSONAL ADS

This note is late and written under protest.  Why should I write a Personal for these
people?  They're peasants.  And Jorja was away; I thought she'd never know.  She
knew.  We seem to have gone three-two-one.  What would have happened if there'd been
another place in that sequence?  ANYTHING could happen.  People don't think of that.
I hope we'll have something better to think about with the current round of fights,
though I don't actually expect it. -- Lucrezia Baron

Well, I was *right*.  This turn was worse.  Three-two, and *I* lost, and the new
people (if people they truly are) on this team defeated standbys.  This is wrong.  It
should not be like this. -- Lucrezia Baron
