                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, friends and fiends, welcome to your friendly neighborhood spyreport.  
I doubt RIZTAB will ever be the same.  It seems the training can make the difference, 
as DREAMERS is pushed out of top team by SWEET MAGIC, who came from 2nd with a 3-2-0 
this turn.  And let's see, HIPPASUS fought GIVORSA JIMH and gained 11 points and 
contributed to DREAMERS' 1-1-0.  GIVORSA JIMH has lost to HIPPASUS, falling 6 points, 
while helping make SWEET MAGIC a 3-2-0 turn.  Defending his title for another turn, 
ACE kept RIZTAB's warrior, DEVAR THE TRAITOR, from claiming the throne.  Tell me, is 
nothing sacred?  I have heard from unimpeachable sources that The Swinging Aardvark 
uses trolls in their stew.  Talk about gristle!   
     Oriental wise man once say, 'Hiding behind shields prevents proper sun tanning.' 
Inscrutable, but true.   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  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, RIZTAB, the taverns have old wine, and young serving girls.  
Who could ask for more?  It's been nice chatting with you, until we meet again, keep 
your swords sharp and your hammers heavy.  Until you see my quill in RIZTAB again, 
farewell-- Alarond the Scribe

They like me.  They really like me. -- Scurvy Lady

     Well, sure.  What's not to like? -- Spymaster Torric

Ace -- Well, okay, why not?  Aces high, and there you sit, at the top of the heap.
But don't expect me to make your favorite cake for you.  Well, unless you ask nicely,
and it's a kind I have the fixings for.  For instance, I couldn't make a german
chocolate cake because I don't have any german to put in it, though I do have
chocolate. -- Dora Bell

Scruvy Lady -- Really, I assure you, lemon drops are just as effective as lime drops,
and the color is better. -- Donnamira

Archytas -- My grandmother had a dog name Archy once, any king of yours?  He was a
spaniel and quite pleasant. -- Gaylene Vollas

Aspasia -- Is that anything like aphasia, which purports to explain why someone
doesn't write personals?  I mean, what if I make alphabet cookies, would they be a
help to you? -- Lusintilla Oban

Alcmaeon -- No, no, and no.  I do not want to make marzipan, and I will not make
marzipan, and that's all there is to it. -- Givorsa Jimh
P.S.  But I make make maple sugar candy.  Like little leaves.
