                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, friends and fiends, welcome to your friendly neighborhood spyreport.  
I doubt ARKERS will ever be the same.  It seems the training can make the difference, 
as MIDDLE WAY 11 is pushed out of top team by YOU PAY I SLAY, who came from 2nd with 
a 2-2-0 this turn.  And let's see, FIELDER fought TYPHOID MARY and gained 15 points 
and contributed to YOU PAY I SLAY's 2-2-0.  IMA SLAYER has lost to KEE, falling 10 
points, while helping make YOU PAY I SLAY a 2-2-0 turn.  Defending his title for 
another turn, CONFIDENCE kept MIDDLE WAY 11's warrior, NORM QUESHA, from claiming the 
throne.  Can someone confirm a rumor for me?  I hear the top team makes their losing 
fighters do dishes at The Swinging Aardvark until they win.  Maybe?   
     Oriental wise man once say, 'Hiding behind shields prevents proper sun tanning.' 
Inscrutable, but true.   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  Is it really true that ARKERS 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.  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
