                                      SPY REPORT

     Busy, busy, busy, lots of things happening in KALTOS this turn, and let's start 
with a look at some of the teams.  And let's see, HEXTOR fought EMBEZZLING SCRIBE and 
gained 16 points and contributed to LONG SWORD CLUB's 3-2-0.  QUARTUS has lost to 
MAURINA OBEL, falling 13 points, while helping make LONG SWORD CLUB a 3-2-0 turn.  
The attempts to dethrone the Duelmaster have failed, and RAVEN remains KALTOS' top 
warrior for another turn.  Tell me, is nothing sacred?  I have heard from 
unimpeachable sources that The Victory Tavern uses trolls in their stew.  Talk about 
gristle!   
     I tell you, a green quarterstaff lasts longer than a seasoned sapling.  A basher 
friend of mine assures me this is true.   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  A brave warrior does not carry a red shield, he has nothing to cover or 
hide when the fight is over.  Consider well.   
     Remember, blood on the purple robe does not change it from a purple robe.  Dare 
to fight bravely.  Well, I'm burning daylight here in KALTOS 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

May Day -- I think Bambi and Thumper would have put up more of a fight. -- Tertius

Maurina Obel -- It was an honour to beat you. -- Primus

Q'ute -- Clearly you're not ready to replace Q yet. -- Quartus

Grrr -- Grrr?  Try Blurrrrrr... I didn't even see you much less fight you. -- Hextor

Raven -- I don't care for that "laughs heartlessly at the prospect of slaying its
opponent" comment.  Not the sort of thing I want to hear during a fight! -- Leora
Noeval
P.S.  And zombie birds shouldn't laugh.  Horrible sound.

Red Mercury -- None for me, thanks.  I've got other plans. -- Gidget Imer

Primus -- Hmm, does being a six-foot-two dwarf make you try harder, because all the
dwarves back home laughed at you? -- Maurina Obel
P.S.  I'm not going to feel sorry for you, though.  You could just... shave off your
beard and claim to be Shewish, or something.

Honey Rider -- You can come take care of my houseplant any day. -- Quent Sorn

Rock -- And I suppose if I look around, I'll find the hard spot behind me, right? --
