                                      SPY REPORT

     Busy, busy, busy, lots of things happening in DULLENS this turn, and let's start 
with a look at some of the teams.  And let's see, SAM ADAMS fought STONEDOG and 
gained 25 points and contributed to MMMM BEER!'s 1-0-0.  STONEDOG has lost to SAM 
ADAMS, falling 22 points, while helping make CARDOW HUNTERS a 2-3-0 turn.  The 
attempts to dethrone the Duelmaster have failed, and SCOURGE remains DULLENS' 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 Yellow Dog Tavern until they win.  
Maybe?   
     I tell you, a green quarterstaff lasts longer than a seasoned sapling.  A basher 
friend of mine assures me this is true.   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  You gotta do what you gotta do.  HARRY POTTER AND THE has sent NEW 
AMUSEMENT PARK to the Dark Arena.  The deed is done.  Lift the ale, and toast the 
memory.  Is it really true that DULLENS has more dishwashers per capita that 
fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...   
     Thought for the day, a new sword shines bright, but the notched sword sings the 
sweetest.  Well, I'm burning daylight here in DULLENS and I've a long road ahead of 
me.  Happy Trails.  Until you see my quill in DULLENS again, farewell-- Alarond the 
Scribe
