                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, in LIN TIRIAN 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, BELIAL 
ERNESTO fought ARC D'WOOF and gained 18 points and contributed to HOWLIN MARTYRS' 
1-0-0.  ARC D'WOOF has lost to BELIAL ERNESTO, falling 8 points, while helping make 
SAND DANCERS a 2-3-0 turn.  The attempts to dethrone the Duelmaster have failed, and 
FRACAS remains LIN TIRIAN's top warrior for another turn.  By the way, was that our 
Duelmaster that I saw last night, cramped under the table at The Lost Hope Inn?   
     I tell you, a green quarterstaff lasts longer than a seasoned sapling.  A basher 
friend of mine assures me this is true.  I also notice that the HOWLIN MARTYRS stable 
was the most avoided team this turn.  Come on LIN TIRIAN, what are you afraid of?  
And guess who avoided HOWLIN MARTYRS stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was 
FAMOUS ARCHERS.  Anyone surprised?   
     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.  A brave warrior does not carry a 
red shield, he has nothing to cover or hide when the fight is over.  Consider well.   
     I like this place, LIN TIRIAN, the taverns have old wine, and young serving 
girls.  Who could ask for more?  It's been nice chatting with you, until we meet 
again, keep your swords sharp and your hammers heavy.  Until you see my quill in LIN 
TIRIAN again, farewell-- Alarond the Scribe

Still more Fracas! A ripper! (Almost an archer.) A salute to the DM. -- Arrowhead

Hey, Jorja. Ygritte's archery has not degraded, just my opinion of her! I might have 
wanted Jon Snow for myself, you know? (wink) -- Arrowhead

Persistent Beggar, no coins because your cup runneth over. -- Katniss, et al

Bill Board, you are becoming my bill board, showing my prowess. So, thanks. -- William 
Tell

Embezzling Scribe, that was fun. -- Lara Croft

Sir Quamalot, grrrrr. I hate you and the black and white skunk you rode in on! You are 
on the Archer target list, once we figure out how..... -- Katniss

I surely hope Green Arrow did well in The Mailer. He should be back here with us soon. 
-- Arrowhead (hopingly for both did well and return)

Thwack! (The Famous Archer motto.) -- Arrowhead
