                                      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 IT'S ALL OVER NOW is pushed out of top team by BIG SHOTS, who came 
from 3rd with a 4-0-1 this turn.  And let's see, BLACK DEATH fought VENOMOUS 
CONCUBINE and gained 17 points and contributed to DUNGEON CELL's 2-2-0.  METHYL ETHEL 
has lost to SKUNK CREEK, falling 8 points, while helping make SHADY LADIES a 0-2-0 
turn.  The attempts to dethrone the Duelmaster have failed, and GOODY TWOSHOES 
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.  I also notice that the DUELHAMPSTERS! stable 
was the most avoided team this turn.  Come on KALTOS, what are you afraid of?  And 
avoiding DUELHAMPSTERS! more than any other team we find HISTORICAL KOLACT.  KALTOS, 
are we going to accept, or respect this sort of thing?  The most challenged warrior 
this turn was THE MIDDLE WAY 5's warrior OSWALD QUORN.  More fighters challenged him 
than challenged the Duelmaster!  In a brave attempt, YONDER ORPHAN from IT'S ALL OVER 
NOW challenged up 25 points to fight OSWALD QUORN from the THE MIDDLE WAY 5 stable.  
YONDER ORPHAN perhaps got his just desserts, seeing as he subdued OSWALD QUORN and 
ended up with 58 recognition points.   
     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?  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

Black Death -- It's a tough life, being a deadly contagion.  Not one with friends,
hmm? -- Arenamaster Troktai

Common Criminal -- An even balance of disappointments, eh?  Sounds positively
philosophical. -- Troktai

How can *I* be least popular?  Someone is JEALOUS. -- Jerry Lee

One-four.  I don't know what excuse my teammates will use for this, other than that
*tehy* didn't get to fight standbys, but quite frankly, they're pathetic. -- Lucia
Neron
P.S.  Okay, I'm pathetic, too, but at least I won my fight today.  That's more than
they can say.
