                                      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.  It seems the training can make the difference, as 
LONG SWORD CLUB is pushed out of top team by THE MIDDLE WAY 5, who came from 2nd with 
a 2-3-0 this turn.  And let's see, HEXTOR fought 8 BALL and gained 24 points and 
contributed to LONG SWORD CLUB's 2-2-0.  8 BALL has lost to HEXTOR, falling 20 
points, while helping make POOL PARTY a 0-1-0 turn.  This turn JUDAS PRIUS challenged 
TERTIUS in what was KALTOS' Title bout.  The attempts to dethrone the Duelmaster have 
failed, and JUDAS PRIUS remains KALTOS' top warrior for another turn.  By the way, 
was that our Duelmaster that I saw last night, cramped under the table at The Victory 
Tavern?   
     I tell you, a green quarterstaff lasts longer than a seasoned sapling.  A basher 
friend of mine assures me this is true.  ZOMBIE SQUAD has cause to stand tall, as 
they were KALTOS' most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a team to beat.  
And guess who avoided ZOMBIE SQUAD stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was 
TECHNOLOGY.  Anyone surprised?   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  MASSAGE PARLORS has some questions to answer.  Like 'why did you 
kill your fighter, FAT SHERIFF, who had a record of 3-0-0?' Had I not seen it, it 
would be hard to believe.  HAPPY ENDING was sent to the Dark Arena and lived to tell 
about it!  Makes you think, no?  Is it really true that KALTOS has more dishwashers 
per capita that fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...   
     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 the sun next rises and my pen sets to paper-- 
Alarond the Scribe

Okay, again we salute the tourney participants. -- Jorja and the Middle Way

Primus -- I don't CARE.  I won't go to dinner with you until you SHAVE.  Anything
could be hiding in there. -- Gidget Imer
P.S.  It isn't like you're my only possible date, after all.  I'm popular.  Lots of
people would be glad to go out with me.

Mechanon -- The steward said it was luck you won, and he was RIGHT.  I can win fights
just FINE, but this time I didn't remember to bring a lunch. -- Just Losin

Butler -- Ah!  This time, the butler did NOT do it.  *I* did. -- Nolber Pring

The Embezzling Scribe isn't much of a fighter, but he's got some fascinating ideas
about accounting and general math.  I'm going to look into this stuff. -- Melandar
Orbin, looking for a good day job

Watson -- It may have been elementary this time, but just wait!  It gets more
complicated. -- Riella True
