                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, in KOLACT a quiet thief gets rich, but a quiet spymaster gets poor.  
So bring me ale and harken to my tidbits of news.  It seems the training can make the 
difference, as VIKINGS is pushed out of top team by THE MENTORS' TOY BOX, who came 
from 5th with a 4-1-0 this turn.  Now keep the taverns open late tonight, for there 
are sorrows to drown for VIKINGS, whose 0-2-0 this turn dropped them by 4 into 5th.  
THE MENTORS' TOY BOX stable has parlayed this turn's 4-1-0 into a 4 space move up the 
rankings.  This brings them up to 1st place.  Good work, guys!  The ABOMINATION 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, GNAEUS MAGNUS fought H TO THE IZZO and 
gained 21 points and contributed to ANTHROPOS KRATOS' 3-2-0.  H TO THE IZZO has lost 
to GNAEUS MAGNUS, falling 19 points, while helping make JAY-Z a 1-2-0 turn.  This 
turn VENUS Dark Arena Challenged BLACK ORC in what was KOLACT's Title bout.  The 
attempts to dethrone the Duelmaster have failed, and VENUS 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.  ANTHROPOS KRATOS has cause to stand tall, as 
they were KOLACT's most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a team to beat.  
And guess who avoided ANTHROPOS KRATOS stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was 
THE MENTORS' TOY BOX.  Anyone surprised?  Well, sports fans, take notice that SY FY 
from ABOMINATION was KOLACT's most challenged warrior this turn.  In a brave attempt, 
HILLARY from THE MENTORS challenged up 24 points to fight SY FY from the ABOMINATION 
stable.  HILLARY perhaps got hers just desserts, seeing as she was defeated by SY FY 
and ended up with 7 recognition points.  NIKKITA of THE MENTORS' TOY BOX had better 
have a good reason for challenging down 13 points in a challenge which she won.  I 
thought NIKKITA showed great skill and promise when she won victory over DEIMOON 
FARR.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  VENUS must have surprised THE MENTORS this turn, after they sent her 
to the Dark Arena, but the Dark Arena couldn't hold her!  Is it really true that 
KOLACT has more dishwashers per capita that fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...   
     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
