                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail KOLACT!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed for your 
deeds.  The QUBIT guild has had a 4-1-0 turn and deserves to be watched in the 
future.  You never know where this kind of thing can lead.  And let's see, FALLING 
STAR fought SIR COPHAGUS and gained 25 points and contributed to THE MOONDOGS' 1-4-0. 
SIR COPHAGUS has lost to FALLING STAR, falling 17 points, while helping make SIR 
AGLIO a 2-3-0 turn.  The attempts to dethrone the Duelmaster have failed, and SIR DA 
remains KOLACT's top warrior for another turn.  Tell me, is nothing sacred?  I have 
heard from unimpeachable sources that Don Corleone's uses trolls in their stew.  Talk 
about gristle!   
     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 FEARSOME 
FIVESOME stable was the most avoided team this turn.  Come on KOLACT, what are you 
afraid of?  And avoiding FEARSOME FIVESOME more than any other team we find QUBIT.  
KOLACT, are we going to accept, or respect this sort of thing?  The most challenged 
warrior this turn was THE MOONDOGS' warrior ESTRELLA.  More fighters challenged her 
than challenged the Duelmaster!   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  Kudos go out to SADIE this turn, for revenging SPRINGBORN's bloodfeud 
against QUBIT's warrior QUASIMODO.  Well done.  Is it really true that KOLACT 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

Quasimodo/Cynica -- Okay, so...maybes I was a tad fragile for the style.  Just a bit.
-- Gatorette

Frodo -- It's the hunter/killer instincts.  They come to the fore at the most
interesting times. -- Sadie

Actaon -- The question of questions...what are "ripper" numbers?  Bwaaa, don't look
at me, but I'll see if I can find some that're more the competitive type. -- Melody

Sir Da -- Did you know there's a sleep accessory manufacturer what goes by your
handle?  You certainly put me to sleep.  Any relation? -- Syd Tubular

All -- Introducing Mr. Shrdlu.  He's giving up his last and quitting the cobbler's
biz for the excitements and high life on the sands.  The glory, the women, the
drinks-on-the-house. -- Still the Distiller

Melody -- Just watching you walk out onto the sands is music in motion.
Unfortunately mesmerizing. -- Actaon

Deagol -- No, no, trust me when I assure you that I am NOT laughing at you.  Just be
sure to give me a birthday present. -- Estrella

Butterbur -- That off-hand beer stein was sheer genius. -- Cynica
P.S.  And you never spilled a drop!

Quo Vadis -- Are you sure? -- Falling Star, living down to his name

Sir Cophagus -- Hmm, that's a tricky one.  Cherry syrup?  And try to smoke less. --
Moonday

Sadie -- I TRIED the "stiff upper lip."  It is IMPOSSIBLE to speak clearly with a
stiff upper lip, and you don't want to hear what I ended up with at the cafe!  Not to
mention that I also ended up sneezing a storm. -- Moonday

Sir Ender -- I bounded forward?  Why don't I remember that? -- Estrella
