                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, in JHELUM a quiet thief gets rich, but a quiet spymaster gets poor.  
So bring me ale and harken to my tidbits of news.  Now keep the taverns open late 
tonight, for there are sorrows to drown for SUPERIOR FORCES ZC2, whose 1-3-1 this 
turn dropped them by 6 into 16th.  BLADES OF MIST stable has parlayed this turn's 
3-1-1 into a 5 space move up the rankings.  This brings them up to 3rd place.  Good 
work, guys!  And let's see, DARK CHAMPION fought JUSTGIVEITUP and gained 20 points 
and contributed to BLACK & BLUE's 2-1-0.  And all eyes were on SYNDICATE this turn as 
he ascended to the throne of Duelmaster.  JHELUM has a new victor!  Tell me, is 
nothing sacred?  I have heard from unimpeachable sources that The Dripping Blade uses 
trolls in their stew.  Talk about gristle!   
     Oriental wise man once say, 'Hiding behind shields prevents proper sun tanning.' 
Inscrutable, but true.  MILLENIUM METAL has cause to stand tall, as they were 
JHELUM's most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a team to beat.  And guess 
who avoided MILLENIUM METAL stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was BLACK & BLUE. 
Anyone surprised?  Well, sports fans, take notice that RAEL from BLADES OF MIST was 
JHELUM's most challenged warrior this turn.  FIRE BALL of SOME BODIES had better have 
a good reason for challenging down 9 points in a challenge which he lost.  I thought 
FIRE BALL showed great skill and promise when he lost to DREAMER.  All right, so I 
slept through it!  Big deal!   
     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.  EXCURSION must have surprised 
BLADES OF MIST this turn, after they sent him to the Dark Arena, but the Dark Arena 
couldn't hold him!  Had I not seen it, it would be hard to believe.  ANDROMEDA was 
sent to the Dark Arena and lived to tell about it!  Makes you think, no?  Will PURPLE 
AND GOLD get away with MICHAEL COOPER having killed BRAM DE WAARD of RONDE VAN 
NOORD-HOL.?  One more turn, and the bloodfeud's over, at least officially.  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.  Well, I'm burning daylight here in JHELUM and I've a long road ahead of 
me.  Happy Trails.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets to paper-- Alarond the 
Scribe

White Dog -- Madam, I think you should take issue with your manager for giving you a
name which, to the normal Jhelumite ear, is disrespectful, nay, even derogatory.  It
can do you no good. -- Pericles

Avren Ralcen -- Heck.  Uh, nothing against you, but why couldn't *I* get matched with
cute chicks who lose to me and ask for favors? -- Dogface

Problem Solver -- Against all logic, some problems--such as this one--seem to solve
themselves, or to evaporate if left unattended for long enough.  It should not be so.
-- Pericles

Traumer -- Nothing left in your manager's bag of tricks? -- Husband

Vagabond -- You stole that one! -- Deacon

Drommare -- I'm the better of the bad. -- Problem Solver

Dogface -- Nothing to be ashamed of.  Those losses in the late teens and 20's can be
a real problem.  Job had some real nail biters when he was a Challenger Initiate.  He
barely made it through that class without a win!  After that, it was pretty smooth
sailing right up until the day when Suave's TP threw his head into my shortsword 5
times in a row or something. -- Assur

Battle Royal 4
     The Battle Royal arena contests are one of the purest tests of manager skill
available. The rules are simple.  The scoring is simple.  The updates are live.  If
you would like to participate, simply get a team ready in Talcama in the next month
and announce in the personals that you're in.  The prize is bragging rights and
having your name along side previous winners (Doc Steele, Manray Frothingslosh, and
Manager).  It is a brutal contest, but it is a lot of fun!
     Basic rules:  No avoiding other contest teams.  Score = Wins + Kills - Losses.
Only fights against other BR teams count.  First team to 25 wins!
     BR4 begins in Talcama (DM 18) on turn 502, due on Jan 29, 2005.
     Visit http://www.geocities.com/assurnasir/br4 for more information.
