                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, in MORDANT 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, DESTINY fought 
HAYDAN and gained 11 points and contributed to SWEORDMASTERS' 1-0-0.  THIRD CHARMER 
has lost to BLACK DEVIN, falling 4 points, while helping make HOMICIDAL MANIACS a 
3-2-0 turn.  Our last turn's Duelmaster has lost, folks, lost to M. CHARDINEE, and 
JEJUNE has made the way for a new Duelmaster!  With JEJUNE clearing the throne, LAB 
EXPERIMENTS of THINREDONE takes a proud seat as MORDANT's new Duelmaster, by virtue 
of recognition points.  By the way, was that our Duelmaster that I saw last night, 
cramped under the table at Conan's Place?   
     Oriental wise man once say, 'Hiding behind shields prevents proper sun tanning.' 
Inscrutable, but true.   
     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.  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.  Always good to rest in MORDANT, but never good to wear out my 
welcome.  Look for me in future turns.  Until you see my quill in MORDANT again, 
farewell-- Alarond the Scribe

Gooeyduck -- Why don't you go goo at Swallowtail or something, make goo-goo eyes the
way the Wall does (except for not having eyes, exactly).  Anyway, I really do NOT
need more golems trying to get into my head! -- Number Two

Destiny -- If your team is going to use an archaic name, it should also use archaic
weapons and tactics.  You are not doing this.  Think matters over carefully and
adjust your strategy, please. -- Haydan, who wants things done properly

Black Devin -- Great!  Somebody I can really get my teeth into--just what I needed.
I am really, really frustrated just now, and I ENJOYED beating you up.  And biting
you, too, you stupid runt. -- Outlaw Inlaw

Metris Fro, otherwise known as the Caeran Slave -- Now you've got the Wall confused,
which is NOT what I needed!  A confused golem thinking into my head...no wonder I
lose fights!
     I do not understand your statement that you have been willfully removed from the
proper position.  This is in violation of the building plans, and the masons would
not allow it.  If you have been removed from your proper place and incorporated into
some new structure, there must be an architectural reason for this.  It must be a
proper thing.  It is wrong to seek to evade the building plans and the will of the
masons.  You must cease this unfired irregularity.  Find solidity in filling your
proper niche in the Great Wall and upholding the courses above you.
     -- Number Two, channelling the Brick Wall

Geshi Scrivener is such a sweetie!  He promised to take care of my houseplants when I
went on vacation, and wrote me the NICEST pass to go, and I didn't even have to argue
with Nick! -- Third Charmer
