                                      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.  And let's see, JUST LOSIN fought 
WATSON and gained 16 points and contributed to THE MIDDLE WAY 5's 3-2-0.  WATSON has 
lost to JUST LOSIN, falling 11 points, while helping make TECHNOLOGY a 0-1-0 turn.  
And all eyes were on 8 BALL this turn as it ascended to the throne of Duelmaster.  
KALTOS has a new victor!  Can someone confirm a rumor for me?  I hear the top team 
makes their losing fighters do dishes at The Victory Tavern until they win.  Maybe?   
     I tell you, a green quarterstaff lasts longer than a seasoned sapling.  A basher 
friend of mine assures me this is true.  I also notice that the TECHNOLOGY stable was 
the most avoided team this turn.  Come on KALTOS, what are you afraid of?  And guess 
who avoided TECHNOLOGY stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was HOOKED ON COFFEE.  
Anyone surprised?  Well, sports fans, take notice that JUST LOSIN from THE MIDDLE WAY 
5 was KALTOS' most challenged warrior this turn.   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  Is it really true that KALTOS has more dishwashers per capita that 
fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...   
     I like this place, KALTOS, the taverns have old wine, and young serving girls.  
Who could ask for more?  It's been nice chatting with you, until we meet again, keep 
your swords sharp and your hammers heavy.  Until you see my quill in KALTOS again, 
farewell-- Alarond the Scribe
