                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, in DULLENS 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 HARRY POTTER AND THE is pushed out of top team by HOUSE OF CARDS, who 
came from 2nd with a 2-0-0 this turn.  And let's see, DERANGED DINGO fought THE BRANK 
and gained 19 points and contributed to SATAN'S KINGDOMS' 2-2-0.  THE BRANK has lost 
to DERANGED DINGO, falling 4 points, while helping make THE CONFESSIORS a 2-1-0 turn. 
Defending his title for another turn, ROBERTO LEATHAM kept HARRY POTTER AND THE's 
warrior, INMATE OF ARKHAM, from claiming the throne.  By the way, was that our 
Duelmaster that I saw last night, cramped under the table at Arthur's Last Stand?   
     He who challenges well, fights well.  He who avoids without cause, shall lose 
for good reasons.  My mama told me that one.  SATAN'S KINGDOMS has cause to stand 
tall, as they were DULLENS' most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a team 
to beat.  And guess who avoided SATAN'S KINGDOMS stable the most?  Believe it or not, 
it was SATAN'S KINGDOMS.  Anyone surprised?  Well, sports fans, take notice that 
INMATE OF ARKHAM from HARRY POTTER AND THE was DULLENS' most challenged warrior this 
turn.   
     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.   
     Remember, blood on the purple robe does not change it from a purple robe.  Dare 
to fight bravely.  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 DULLENS again, 
farewell-- Alarond the Scribe
