                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, friends and fiends, welcome to your friendly neighborhood spyreport.  
I doubt RIZTAB will ever be the same.  And let's see, BLACK HEART fought DONNAMIRA 
and gained 15 points and contributed to CARDS' 3-1-1.  LORIMERA has lost to MOTTA THE 
PIKE, falling 5 points, while helping make SWEET MAGIC a 1-3-0 turn.  The attempts to 
dethrone the Duelmaster have failed, and HIPPASUS remains RIZTAB'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 The Welcome Wench until they win.  Maybe?   
     Oriental wise man once say, 'Hiding behind shields prevents proper sun tanning.' 
Inscrutable, but true.  DREAMERS has cause to stand tall, as they were RIZTAB's most 
avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a team to beat.  And guess who avoided 
DREAMERS stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was CARDS.  Anyone surprised?  The 
most challenged warrior this turn was SWEET MAGIC's warrior DONNAMIRA.  More fighters 
challenged her than challenged the Duelmaster!   
     The Dark Arena is for those who cannot win, not who cannot lose with grace.  
Dignity in life or death is the warrior's creed.  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?  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

Hippasus -- I don't mind a bit, since it's my last fight.  In fact, I think I'll
throw a party, and you're invited. -- Dora Bell

Aristoclea -- Dora gave me the recipe for her special gateau, and if you're NICE to
me--skills would be good--I'll make some for you. -- Donnamira

Black Heart -- Sounds unhealthy.  Too much licorice, probably. -- Nonellia
P.S.  Any licorice is too much.

Marzipan. -- Jaylene Mokhar
P.S.  Coffee marzipan.

I wouldn't make marzipan for Martos Chard.  Jaylene's nuts.  Or something.  Leovar
can have ONE piece of walnut fudge, and that's ALL.  More isn't good for him. --
Lorimera
P.S.  Honestly, these guys eat like they had no idea what difference it makes, fat or
lean, sweat or plain, any of that.

We salute Riztab's tourney participants. -- Jorja and Sweet Magic
