                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, in BONSUR a quiet thief gets rich, but a quiet spymaster gets poor.  
So bring me ale and harken to my tidbits of news.  SHEWISH PICNIC stable has parlayed 
this turn's 3-2-0 into a 4 space move up the rankings.  This brings them up to 2nd 
place.  Good work, guys!  And let's see, PARGEN fought FLAPJACK and gained 15 points 
and contributed to TOLBIN'S BP's 3-2-0.  FLAPJACK has lost to PARGEN, falling 10 
points, while helping make SHEWISH PICNIC a 3-2-0 turn.  This week's Duelmaster bout 
was between PUTTY KNIFE and our Duelmaster ATHELAS, making a challenge.  The attempts 
to dethrone the Duelmaster have failed, and ATHELAS remains BONSUR's top warrior for 
another turn.  By the way, was that our Duelmaster that I saw last night, cramped 
under the table at The Warty Toad?   
     The crowd's roar, the smell of iron and leather, mixed with sweat, what more 
could a warrior ask of life?  Well, besides that.  Well, sports fans, take notice 
that CANNED SAVRADESE from SHEWISH PICNIC was BONSUR's most challenged warrior this 
turn.   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  We'd like to remind certain teams not to rob the graves of their enemies.  
You know who you are; and it's considered rude.   
     Remember, blood on the purple robe does not change it from a purple robe.  Dare 
to fight bravely.  It's been nice chatting with you, until we meet again, keep your 
swords sharp and your hammers heavy.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets to 
paper-- Alarond the Scribe
