                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, in RIZTAB a quiet thief gets rich, but a quiet spymaster gets poor.  
So bring me ale and harken to my tidbits of news.  It seems the training can make the 
difference, as SWEET MAGIC is pushed out of top team by DREAMERS, who came from 2nd 
with a 2-2-0 this turn.  TORTURED stable has parlayed this turn's 2-0-0 into a 3 
space move up the rankings.  This brings them up to 5th place.  Good work, guys!  The 
WHO DA MAN? guild has had a 4-1-1 turn and deserves to be watched in the future.  You 
never know where this kind of thing can lead.  And let's see, JOY OF LOSING fought 
GRUBSTAKER and gained 21 points and contributed to WHO DA MAN?'s 4-1-1.  COREA has 
lost to FILTH PIG, falling 14 points, while helping make BLUE NOTE a 0-3-0 turn.  
This week's Duelmaster bout was between CHARLENE and our Duelmaster MARTYR, making a 
challenge.  The attempts to dethrone the Duelmaster have failed, and MARTYR remains 
RIZTAB's top warrior for another turn.  Tell me, is nothing sacred?  I have heard 
from unimpeachable sources that The Dripping Blade 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 KAOS FROGS stable was 
the most avoided team this turn.  Come on RIZTAB, what are you afraid of?  And 
avoiding KAOS FROGS more than any other team we find WHO DA MAN?.  RIZTAB, are we 
going to accept, or respect this sort of thing?  Well, sports fans, take notice that 
SUGAR BABY from SWEET MAGIC was RIZTAB's most challenged warrior this turn.   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  Had I not seen it, it would be hard to believe.  SLAP FROGGER was 
sent to the Dark Arena and lived to tell about it!  Makes you think, no?  I guess it 
was coming sooner or later, SWEET MAGIC has lost GRUBSTAKER, and RIZTAB is bound to 
miss him.  For a little while, at least.  A brave warrior does not carry a red 
shield, he has nothing to cover or hide when the fight is over.  Consider well.   
     Thought for the day, a new sword shines bright, but the notched sword sings the 
sweetest.  It's been nice chatting with you, until we meet again, keep your swords 
sharp and your hammers heavy.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets to paper-- 
Alarond the Scribe

It's no shame in Who Da Man? avoiding us.  They're on diets. -- Sweet Magic

Two-three.  Tcha.

to avoid my EXCELLENT cherry pie. -- Charlene

Arignote -- If you don't want a dish of ice cream by itself (I call it "straight
up"), how about Baked Alaska? -- Nelli Politana

Do you know why Li Ko the Clumsy came out empty-handed?  So he could snatch my
sausage rolls right out of my lunch sack!  The nerve of that guy! -- Grubstaker

I have REALLY GOOD hard candies today, and it's AMAZING the way you can distract an
opponent by tossing them out. -- Sugar Baby

Coltrane -- Yes, but it's very good cheesecake. -- Phillia Fox
