                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, friends and fiends, welcome to your friendly neighborhood spyreport.  
I doubt KOLACT will ever be the same.  Now keep the taverns open late tonight, for 
there are sorrows to drown for ORL 2013V, whose 0-1-0 this turn dropped them by 4 
into 9th.  THE MENTORS stable has parlayed this turn's 4-1-0 into a 5 space move up 
the rankings.  This brings them up to 3rd place.  Good work, guys!  And let's see, 
COUNT BLYTHE fought KRAKO and gained 23 points and contributed to THIRSTY THUGS' 
3-1-0.  KRAKO has lost to COUNT BLYTHE, falling 18 points, while helping make THE 
CLUB a 2-3-0 turn.  HILLARY challenged for the Duelmastership this turn, attempting 
to dethrone THIRSTY THUGS' warrior.  We should ask HILLARY about the thrill of 
victory, and what being the new Duelmaster does for a warrior, she's now the one to 
ask.  Tell me, is nothing sacred?  I have heard from unimpeachable sources that Don 
Corleone's uses trolls in their stew.  Talk about gristle!   
     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 THIRSTY THUGS stable 
was the most avoided team this turn.  Come on KOLACT, what are you afraid of?  And 
avoiding THIRSTY THUGS more than any other team we find VIKINGS.  KOLACT, are we 
going to accept, or respect this sort of thing?  Well, sports fans, take notice that 
TEMPE POSTMASTER from RAGE AGAINST was KOLACT's most challenged warrior this turn.   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  THE PUNISHER has departed KOLACT, leaving THE HOLY LEGION without their 
6-8-3 warrior.  Question, just what was his team doing at the taverns last night?  
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.  Always good to rest in KOLACT, but never good to wear out my 
welcome.  Look for me in future turns.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets to 
paper-- Alarond the Scribe

Holy Legion -- Team number 52??!  Is this really a blast from the past?  That number
is 25 years old, at least.  Is the manager a well known name reviving an old team, or
an old manager returning?  Either way, welcome back to Kolact! -- Nomad and the
Vikings, another team with a history dating back over 25 years.

Jobs -- I suppose I should thank you for the win.  Challenges like that might explain
the recent 3-turn record. -- Hastighet, who has to be careful when commenting on
records

Tempe Postmaster -- Well, for this sort of a competition I suppose a postmaster is a
big issue.  Problem solved for one turn at least. -- Rok

Vatos Locos -- Ah, the win I needed!  And now, I am off to the Isle!  With my
commission inspired favorites, the epee and bash tactic... yeah, now there is a
winning combination. -- Lord Protector Hreidmar the Red

Couples -- Actually, it was close. I might even have won if my stinkin' sword had
stayed in one piece. -- Dagg
