                                      SPY REPORT

     Busy, busy, busy, lots of things happening in RIZTAB this turn, and let's start 
with a look at some of the teams.  And let's see, DORA BELL fought LEOVAR THE PROUD 
and gained 13 points and contributed to SWEET MAGIC's 3-2-0.  The attempts to 
dethrone the Duelmaster have failed, and PHILOLAUS remains RIZTAB's top warrior for 
another turn.  By the way, was that our Duelmaster that I saw last night, cramped 
under the table at The Welcome Wench?   
     He who challenges well, fights well.  He who avoids without cause, shall lose 
for good reasons.  My mama told me that one.   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  Is it really true that RIZTAB has more dishwashers per capita that 
fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...   
     I like this place, RIZTAB, the taverns have old wine, and young serving girls.  
Who could ask for more?  Well, I'm burning daylight here in RIZTAB and I've a long 
road ahead of me.  Happy Trails.  Until you see my quill in RIZTAB again, farewell-- 
Alarond the Scribe

Philolaus -- For some reason I see you in a lei with pineapples.  Is this weird, or
what?  Pineapples would make a darned heavy, prickly lei! -- Corianelle
P.S.  And some kind of fish.

For Motta the Pike, I think shiskebabs.  Fruit shiskebabs, served with a plate of
pastries to catch the drips.  Honey glaze, maybe some nuts, coconut, stuff like that.
I think it'll work. -- Carlotta

No, I KNOW it'll work. -- Carlotta

Leovar may be Proud, but I'm a better candy-maker than he is.  All he could think of
when I asked him for ideas was, "Duh, licorice?"  Pathetically ordinary. -- Dora Bell
P.S.  And I'm not going to do something with licorice, though I did toy with the idea
of strangling him with licorice laces.

Hmm, Fred the Unready.  Sounds to me like no-bake cookies or something.  I never did
trust those things.  Food needs fire to make it safe. -- Kissa Belle

Cream Puffs with lots of powdered sugar on them, to stop that Hezash's big mouth.
Anything, to stop his mouth.  Gods, it's grotesque! -- Tinakarina

Force of Five -- Are you going to show up, or fall off the newsletter's team listings
altogether? -- Jorja
P.S.  We need you.
