Telorinthe Tailor Shoppe
     Aurora pondered upon the message that had been delivered to her a few short hours 
ago by the special courier that had ridden night and day from parts unknown.
     She looked up from the parchment to address the assembled warriors from the 
Aaaarrgh Hammerz guild, who were trying on their new clothes.
     "Hammer wishes to inform you that he is leaving the country and will return after 
he has attended to some important matters off-world," explained the shapely Shagornan 
Elf Maiden, "but he has left specific instructions for you all to follow during his 
absence!"

                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
TELORINTHE brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Gee, I'm impressed, a 3-1-1 is 
nice, but don't get cocky, FIGHT SONG, the Fates teach humility, and the Fates are 
proud.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed to see ELDON BLACK win a fight and 
gain 15 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, RUIN beat TALON WHISPER and TALON WHISPER lost 8 
points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And it's out with the old, in with the new, as 
ROYAL RAGE HAMMER takes the Title and last week's bar tab from the old Duelmaster.  
Heh, heh.  The Warty Toad, humph!  I've tasted better ale at mortuaries.  Where do 
they get this stuff?  From TELORINTHE's trash dumps?   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.  
CHAPEL OF THE GHOULS, I suppose you'll be glad to know you were this turn's most 
avoided team.  Care to know who is the most afraid of you?  And who led the way in 
this mass act of cowardice?  Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It was AAAARRGH HAMMERZ. 
Ha ha ha ha!  THE GAEL was challenged more times this turn than the Duelmaster.  Now 
was the DM insulted or feared?  Heh, heh.   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for TELORINTHE's 
morgue.  More variety.  And what a stunning loss we have here, boys and girls, 
GROUNDHOG HAMMER of AAAARRGH HAMMERZ has added the final loss to his 3-8-0.  Tee hee! 
Titanium shields and bamboo daggers, guess what brave team is developing these kinds 
of weapons?   
     I was about to buy a new quill pen the other day, but some fighter took it for 
an epee.  Forgive me for writing with a dagger.  Well, I've had enough of this 
drivel, and I'm sure you have too.  Off like a dirty shirt of padded leather.  I see 
the crowds are getting restless, I must leave now-- Snide Clemens
