                                      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.  And let's see, DRONE C5 fought RAJ 
FENRIS and gained 26 points and contributed to TOLBINS HIVE C's 3-2-0.  BRAN MAC MORN 
has lost to BEAST MODE, falling 13 points, while helping make DOGS OF WAR a 0-5-0 
turn.  The attempts to dethrone the Duelmaster have failed, and QUEEN OF COOL remains 
JHELUM's top warrior for another turn.  Can someone confirm a rumor for me?  I hear 
the top team makes their losing fighters do dishes at The Warty Toad until they win.  
Maybe?   
     Oriental wise man once say, 'Hiding behind shields prevents proper sun tanning.' 
Inscrutable, but true.  ZOMBIE SQUADS has cause to stand tall, as they were JHELUM's 
most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a team to beat.  And avoiding 
ZOMBIE SQUADS more than any other team we find DEVIATION.  JHELUM, are we going to 
accept, or respect this sort of thing?  The most challenged warrior this turn was 
DOGS OF WAR's warrior BRAN MAC MORN.  More fighters challenged him than challenged 
the Duelmaster!   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  Is it really true that JHELUM has more dishwashers per capita that 
fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...   
     Remember, blood on the purple robe does not change it from a purple robe.  Dare 
to fight bravely.  Always good to rest in JHELUM, 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

Three-two!  This is not so bad.  Of course, I did lose to Queen of Cool, but, ahem,
it's a matter of gallantry.  And Rosie lost, but she *is* a woman.  For the rest, we
did what we were meant to do:  prevailed over our opponents.  This is good. -- Sun
