                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, friends and fiends, welcome to your friendly neighborhood spyreport.  
I doubt KOLACT will ever be the same.  It seems the training can make the difference, 
as ABOMINATION is pushed out of top team by BACON MAKIN', who came from 4th with a 
5-0-0 this turn.  BACON MAKIN' stable has parlayed this turn's 5-0-0 into a 3 space 
move up the rankings.  This brings them up to 1st place.  Good work, guys!  And let's 
see, SCARFACE fought BLACK KNIGHT and gained 14 points and contributed to THE CLUB's 
2-0-0.  LIA HOBERN has lost to FOOTLOOSE, falling 7 points, while helping make THE 
MOONDOGS a 0-5-0 turn.  The attempts to dethrone the Duelmaster have failed, and 
FLATLINERS remains KOLACT's top warrior for another turn.  By the way, was that our 
Duelmaster that I saw last night, cramped under the table at Don Corleone's?   
     Oriental wise man once say, 'Hiding behind shields prevents proper sun tanning.' 
Inscrutable, but true.  The most challenged warrior this turn was AVENGERS' warrior 
CAPTAIN AMERICA.  More fighters challenged him than challenged the Duelmaster!   
     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

Lia Hobern -- What do you think, keep with the spear or move on?  You got a much
closer look at it then I did. -- Wizards!

Addai -- OUCH?!? -- (Fat Girl) Thong...err...Trog

Ferrin Mondor -- I'm suprised you actually parried one of my attacks with that hammer
of yours. -- Caprica

Wasp -- How dare you not teach me anything!!! -- Ashur

Team Avengers -- Welcome back to the war. -- Chase (manager of Abomination)

Our congratulations to Flatliners. -- Jorja and the Moondogs

Caprica -- Yep, your team name is well chosen.  Any young hotshot who goes around
defeating me is abominable. -- Ferrin Mondor

Flatliners -- Good to know you're leaving.  Some bacon is crisp and delicious, but
you're just too greasy. -- Lunelle Merrin

Wizards! -- I can understand--all too well!--why the Adantri don't care for people
who use magic.  You're definitely abominable. -- Lia Hobern
P.S.  Professionally.  You may be fine as a person.

Chase -- How is it that the Convicted Assassin isn't one of yours?  His name would
seem to make him a natural. -- Cresdene Arct
P.S.  We're seeing a lot of you today.  Guess it's one of those "glad you're there"
deals, but it's a bummer (and no surprise) to be losing all those matches.

Black Knight -- Good try.  But, um, correct me if I'm wrong, but wasn't the Black
Knight always the one on whom vengeance was taken rather than the one who took it? --
Terrine Orbin
P.S.  Yes, okay, I talked to a knight about it once, and he said that being a "black
knight" was mostly the result of something put on the armor to protect it from the
weather.  Huh, don't know about that, I like the metaphorical answer, myself.
