                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, friends and fiends, welcome to your friendly neighborhood spyreport.  
I doubt LIN TIRIAN will ever be the same.  It seems the training can make the 
difference, as SAND DANCERS is pushed out of top team by DEATH PENALTY, who came from 
2nd with a 3-1-0 this turn.  And let's see, ARNELL NASTI fought FRATSFA SLAVE and 
gained 15 points and contributed to SAND DANCERS' 2-3-0.  MARSHMALLOW KING has lost 
to DALADMAR, falling 10 points, while helping make DUNCAN'S BEST a 1-2-0 turn.  Due 
to hers absence and inability to defend the throne, BUTCHERS HOOK has lost the title 
of Duelmaster.  And all eyes were on JOHN COFFEY this turn as he ascended to the 
throne of Duelmaster.  LIN TIRIAN has a new victor!  Tell me, is nothing sacred?  I 
have heard from unimpeachable sources that The Lost Hope Inn uses trolls in their 
stew.  Talk about gristle!   
     I tell you, a green quarterstaff lasts longer than a seasoned sapling.  A basher 
friend of mine assures me this is true.   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  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.   
     Thought for the day, a new sword shines bright, but the notched sword sings the 
sweetest.  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
