                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, friends and fiends, welcome to your friendly neighborhood spyreport.  
I doubt KOLACT will ever be the same.  And let's see, TREMORS fought LIA HOBERN and 
gained 21 points and contributed to BACON MAKIN''s 2-3-0.  LIA HOBERN has lost to 
TREMORS, falling 23 points, while helping make THE MOONDOGS a 2-3-0 turn.  The 
attempts to dethrone the Duelmaster have failed, and THE GRINCH remains KOLACT'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 Don Corleone's until they win.  Maybe?   
     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 BACON MAKIN' stable 
was the most avoided team this turn.  Come on KOLACT, what are you afraid of?  And 
guess who avoided BACON MAKIN' stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was GLORY 
HOUNDS.  Anyone surprised?  Well, sports fans, take notice that LUNELLE MERRIN from 
THE MOONDOGS was KOLACT's most challenged warrior this turn.   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  A brave warrior does not carry a red shield, he has nothing to cover 
or hide when the fight is over.  Consider well.   
     I like this place, KOLACT, the taverns have old wine, and young serving girls.  
Who could ask for more?  Well, I'm burning daylight here in KOLACT and I've a long 
road ahead of me.  Happy Trails.  Until you see my quill in KOLACT again, farewell-- 
Alarond the Scribe

Stick -- I always suspected that a Hammer was a better weapon than a Stick.... --
Hammer

Goldilocks -- Having a just cause is not enough to make you other than an abominable
little girl. -- Lunelle Merrin
P.S.  Jane I regret, you I would not.

Wizards! -- Yeah.  But then again, if you can reach a wizard with about three feet of
sharp steel... well, it stops 'em. -- Lia Hobern

Shuleszar of Xochithlan, Master of Kung-Fu -- Go away.  Back to Xochithlan would be
good.  Or just jump in the Trier and drown, that would be okay, too. -- Ferrin Mondor

Flatliners -- Well, I suppose it's bacon, but I prefer Hormel Black Label, myself. --
Crsdene Arct

Footloose -- Better tighten them up, or they'll fall off! -- Simoon Terrat

Wizards! -- My anger is very well managed, thank you. -- Lia Hobern

Note -- We are still looking for additional teams in Arvat, DM 32.  I still have a
number of good team rollups available FREE for whoever wants one.
     Contact the Devil Advocates ASAP to join the fun!  You can either reach me by
diplo or on the RSI site.
     Also, whoever sent me the diplo with no name on it requesting a rollup /
information on how to get into Arvat, I'm embarassed to admit that the diplo slipped
out of my folder and was lost.  Please just send me another one with your mailing
address and I'll get a rollup to you ASAP.  Sorry about that!
