                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, friends and fiends, welcome to your friendly neighborhood spyreport.  
I doubt TELORINTHE will ever be the same.  It seems the training can make the 
difference, as CHAPEL OF THE GHOULS is pushed out of top team by THE BURRHEADS, who 
came from 2nd with a 2-3-0 this turn.  And let's see, HURRICANE SEASON fought BULL 
DOXER and gained 23 points and contributed to BAD SIGNS' 4-1-1.  AUTUMN BLOODGOD has 
lost to HILLARY CLINTON, falling 13 points, while helping make CHAPEL OF THE GHOULS a 
2-3-0 turn.  We should ask VENUS about the thrill of victory, and what being the new 
Duelmaster does for a warrior, she's now the one to ask.  Can someone confirm a rumor 
for me?  I hear the top team makes their losing fighters do dishes at The Dripping 
Blade until they win.  Maybe?   
     I tell you, a green quarterstaff lasts longer than a seasoned sapling.  A basher 
friend of mine assures me this is true.  WETWORKS has cause to stand tall, as they 
were TELORINTHE's most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a team to beat.  
And avoiding WETWORKS more than any other team we find BAD SIGNS.  TELORINTHE, are we 
going to accept, or respect this sort of thing?  Well, sports fans, take notice that 
MOTHER-IN-LAW from BAD SIGNS was TELORINTHE's most challenged warrior this turn.  In 
a brave attempt, HAMMER KRINKER from CHAPEL OF THE GHOULS challenged up 24 points to 
fight NIKE from the WETWORKS stable.  HAMMER KRINKER perhaps got his just desserts, 
seeing as he bested NIKE and ended up with 79 recognition points.   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  A farewell moment, if you please, RUIN of WETWORKS has been sent to 
the Dark Arena, and was carried out on hers shield.  The manager of THE BURRHEADS 
will not be pleased to learn that BULL DOXER, a 2-0-0 fighter, has been killed at the 
hands of BAD SIGNS' HURRICANE SEASON.  The Dripping Blade declares a free round for 
MOTHER-IN-LAW and all of BAD SIGNS, for having revenged THE BURRHEADS' HOOF HEARTED 
for killing one of their comrades.  Kudos go out to JESTER this turn, for revenging 
WETWORKS' bloodfeud against THE BURRHEADS' warrior GALAX SLAYER.  Well done.  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 TELORINTHE, but never good to wear out my welcome.  
Look for me in future turns.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets to paper-- 
Alarond the Scribe
