                                      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 CARDOW HUNTERS, who 
came from 2nd with a 4-1-0 this turn.  And let's see, CASSIE ELIZABETH fought 
STORMBIRD and gained 15 points and contributed to HOUSE OF CARDS' 3-2-0.  DEATH has 
lost to JOEL OLIVER, falling 10 points, while helping make IWC a 0-2-0 turn.  And all 
eyes were on KALLI ELISABETH this turn as she ascended to the throne of Duelmaster.  
DULLENS has a new victor!  By the way, was that our Duelmaster that I saw last night, 
cramped under the table at The Yellow Dog Tavern?   
     The crowd's roar, the smell of iron and leather, mixed with sweat, what more 
could a warrior ask of life?  Well, besides that.   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  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.   
     I like this place, DULLENS, the taverns have old wine, and young serving girls.  
Who could ask for more?  Always good to rest in DULLENS, 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

Death -- I know what the managers are saying about "universal appeal" and all that.
I just want you to know that the concept you embody has NO appeal at ALL to me.  As I
trust I have made clear. -- Blackbuck

Stupid standby.  Who can take a guy seriously with a name like Koo Koo Kung Foo? --
Soft Rock

Toodles Enslaved... and a very good thing, too. -- Stormbird

Inept Adversary -- Well named and well met! -- Little Fox

Magical Shortcut -- Short, but probably not safe.  Magic's like that. -- Crowfoot
P.S.  And non-magic, too.  Being a shortcut implies "not the normal/best way," after
all.
