                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail RIZTAB!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed for your 
deeds.  And let's see, GAYLENE VOLLAS fought ARCHYTAS and gained 14 points and 
contributed to SWEET MAGIC's 3-2-0.  LUSINTILLA OBAN has lost to GUILLOTINE, falling 
12 points, while helping make SWEET MAGIC a 3-2-0 turn.  Due to his absence and 
inability to defend the throne, ACE has lost the title of Duelmaster.  And not 
without some honor, SCURVY LADY now claims the title and throne of Duelmaster of 
RIZTAB.  By the way, was that our Duelmaster that I saw last night, cramped under the 
table at The Warty Toad?   
     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 SKI-BUM 12 stable was 
the most avoided team this turn.  Come on RIZTAB, what are you afraid of?  And guess 
who avoided SKI-BUM 12 stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was CARDS.  Anyone 
surprised?   
     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.   
     Thought for the day, a new sword shines bright, but the notched sword sings the 
sweetest.  Always good to rest in RIZTAB, 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

Hippasus -- Exciting, aren't I? -- Scurvy Lady

Ace -- Congrats on the throne! -- Sea Dogs

Dora Bell -- I hope you wrote Ace a thank you note for sparing you from further
stand-by humiliation. -- One Armed Bandit

Ace -- Finally!  I thank you for taking the title into hands better fitted to hold
it.  I offer you two weeks of free fudge, and I make, modesty aside, the best fudge
you're likely to meet in Alastari. -- Dora Bell

Guilotine -- Useful for cutting taffy. -- Givorsa Jimh

Rusty Anchor -- It occurs to me that a creme brule might sort of match your
underlying concept.  I'm going to try it, drop by the Sweet Shop later today to see
how it works out, hmm? -- Lusintilla Oban

Tackle Box -- I have tried to believe boxes important, and I just can't do it.  Lusi
can't, either.  Wrap 'em in clean paper and save the effort for making the best
sweets around. -- Donnamira

Marmaduke the Broke?  Ha.  Like he's going to get anything from us without paying!
And one skill isn't payment enough. -- Gaylene Vollas

All -- I know you all thought the old Wiz that is Fiz went off to die somewhere.
Well, I didn't.  Now I'm back to befuddle and frustrate you with my senseless
ramblings.  I look forward to reconnecting with all my old friends and enemies alike.
