                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, in KALTOS 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 I'M HISTORY is pushed out of top team by EVEREST LLP, who came from 
3rd with a 4-1-0 this turn.  And let's see, SONNY fought ABRAHAM LINCOLN and gained 
25 points and contributed to TECHNOLOGY's 2-1-0.  MOUSE DAVIS has lost to ICE FOX, 
falling 19 points, while helping make PARTY ANIMALS a 2-2-0 turn.  Well done, KALTOS, 
the Duelmaster was this turn's most challenged warrior.  Perhaps JOHN TYLER is not as 
thrilled, being challenged 3 times.  BEATLE BAILEY challenged for the Duelmastership 
this turn, attempting to dethrone I'M HISTORY's warrior.  Defending his title for 
another turn, JOHN TYLER kept PARTY ANIMALS' warrior, BEATLE BAILEY, from claiming 
the throne.  Tell me, is nothing sacred?  I have heard from unimpeachable sources 
that The Victory Tavern uses trolls in their stew.  Talk about gristle!   
     He who challenges well, fights well.  He who avoids without cause, shall lose 
for good reasons.  My mama told me that one.  I also notice that the I'M HISTORY 
stable was the most avoided team this turn.  Come on KALTOS, what are you afraid of?  
And guess who avoided I'M HISTORY stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was PARTY 
ANIMALS.  Anyone surprised?   
     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.  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 KALTOS, but never good to wear out my welcome.  
Look for me in future turns.  Until you see my quill in KALTOS again, farewell-- 
Alarond the Scribe

Electric Sheep -- If I was a golem, I'd probably be glad to see you.  But I don't
have any trouble sleeping, and I'm NOT a golem, so....  Besides, there's too much
static electricity in your wool.  It makes me itch if you get close to me, and then
when I scratch, there are sparks.  Yikes! -- Norle Parth

Zakau -- I really think you should do us all a favor and DIE.  I'm so tired of seeing
you around, it isn't even funny anymore. -- Erloi Gill

There he is again, the not-from-Fratsfa Slave.  And he's still worthless. -- Chester
Egg

Sonny -- Didn't anyone ever tell you to be more respectful of your elders, Sonny? --
Ferghan Hohl
P.S.  And today, trust me, I feel very elder.

Mary Todd -- I tell you what, we've got TOO MUCH history around here.  What we need
is more Here-and-Now. -- Ingold Kerr
P.S.  And if we could bottle it to sell, we'd make a fortune, and I don't mean maybe.

Blabb -- Of course you won.  You drove me NUTS with your constant chatter.  Gods,
there should be a LAW against it! -- Lurvayne to'Kass, known to the fans as "the
Embezzling Scribe," though it is a gross misnomer

Lhotse -- (whine) -- Oh-John, member in good limping of the Beggars' Guild

Angus -- Tell me you aren't going to look for a job as a bank guard! -- Hector Jones,
of the Famous Jones Brothers Gang, Robbers of Banks

Grimm -- And the same to YOU, buster. -- Percy Jones

Chester Egg -- Get fried, you bustard.  Stop picking on me. -- Larsanthek of Kurukar
and Fratsfa
P.S.  If you hear a Fratsfan boasting about the Andorian freedoms, don't believe a
word of it!

Fast Forward -- That's one way to escape my attentions, I suppose, but damned unfair.
-- Wilbothe of Andor, "Convicted" (admitted) Assassin

20 April 2005
I have returned after a five-year absence.  I expect all tithes, gifts and bequeaths
to resume as normal. -- Magic Man
