                                      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.  It seems the training can make the 
difference, as HOMICIDAL MANIACS is pushed out of top team by MIGHTY MORALS II, who 
came from 2nd with a 2-1-0 this turn.  And let's see, VERMOUTH fought LITTLE BEAR and 
gained 11 points and contributed to BOOZE's 1-1-0.  CKYNST OAF has lost to JOY, 
falling 2 points, while helping make HOMICIDAL MANIACS a 2-3-0 turn.  Defending his 
title for another turn, VAN DERMINT kept MIGHTY MORALS II's warrior, HONESTY, from 
claiming the throne.  By the way, was that our Duelmaster that I saw last night, 
cramped under the table at Conan's Place?   
     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 BOOZE stable was the 
most avoided team this turn.  Come on MORDANT, what are you afraid of?  And avoiding 
BOOZE more than any other team we find MIGHTY MORALS II.  MORDANT, are we going to 
accept, or respect this sort of thing?   
     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.   
     I like this place, MORDANT, 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 the sun next rises and my pen sets 
to paper-- Alarond the Scribe

Van Dermint -- I tried the avoid and interference deal to keep Joy on the throne, but
your challenge was recognized.  I can't say I'm really upset about it, since it is
always better to earn the throne through a real fight, but that doesn't mean I won't
use the tools at my disposal to gain any advantage possible.  Good luck in ADM. --
Assur

Papa Bear -- Were you running in Tricorus years ago when I was running my first
Mighty Morals team?  It was you or the Dark One and for some bizarre reason I have
mixed you two up for years. -- Assur

Chianti -- Why is there candle-wax in this wine?  By all the gods, I should osterize
you for that! -- Random Maniac
P.S.  Feels weird to have an actual reason.

Honor -- Huh.  Is that why you learn so well?  Being honorable and all?  No one ever
said anything about THAT to me. -- China Bull

I don't think Black Devin expected to meet up with someone even bigger than he was.
Serves him right, he's been such a bully in the back halls of the arena. -- China
Bull for Ckynst Oaf

Over Innsmouth -- Yeah, well, that's a heck of an overbite you have there, and it
isn't always a helpful thing, you know.  Sometimes it's good to bring the teeth
together squarely. -- Little Bear

I laugh at the Convicted Thief, who doesn't know a THING about the best ways and
places to, ah, engage in flood salvage.  He's crude. -- Flood Surfer

Our congratulations to Van Dermint. -- Jorja and the Homicidal Maniacs

Van Dermint -- Yeah, what she said, and I, um, found... yeah, I FOUND a nifty trophy
cup that might be just the thing for you to remember us all by. -- Flood Surfer
