                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, in TRANSEL 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, DOVAHKIIN fought 
BIG BILL BROONZY and gained 21 points and contributed to SKYRIM's 1-0-0.  DOOPHUS has 
lost to ELMORE JAMES, falling 10 points, while helping make PSYCHO SQUAD a 3-2-0 
turn.  The attempts to dethrone the Duelmaster have failed, and JOE WILLIAMS remains 
TRANSEL's top warrior for another turn.  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?   
     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 PSYCHO SQUAD 
stable was the most avoided team this turn.  Come on TRANSEL, what are you afraid of? 
And avoiding PSYCHO SQUAD more than any other team we find SKYRIM.  TRANSEL, are we 
going to accept, or respect this sort of thing?   
     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.   
     Thought for the day, a new sword shines bright, but the notched sword sings the 
sweetest.  Always good to rest in TRANSEL, but never good to wear out my welcome.  
Look for me in future turns.  Until you see my quill in TRANSEL again, farewell-- 
Alarond the Scribe

Joe Williams -- Bah!  And again, Bah!  The crowds hate you, and rightly so! -- Son of
John

Manager and teammates of Robert Johnson -- That was unintentional.  Shirley Knott
assures me that it was NOT his intention to "slaughter" Robert Johnson.  "Because,"
he said, "it's always good to have someone around to lose."  Make of that what you
will, but Shirley will be available for a bloodfeud if so desired. -- Not-a-Nut Jones
P.S.  Ah, and he said I should point out that he came into that fight as the
underdog.

Big Bill Broonzy -- I don't like you.  And I don't like your attitude, either! -- Tom
Tiger

The absence of Alice (she Ain't Here) was not enough to prevent her losing and
dropping through the floor, or at least through the carpet runner, in the rankings.
Oh, well. -- Not-a-Nut Jones

I don't like orcs, okay?  Nasty, vicious, sneaky things. -- Doophus
