                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, friends and fiends, welcome to your friendly neighborhood spyreport.  
I doubt DULLENS will ever be the same.  And let's see, WOLFDOG fought DRUNKEN 
GUARDSMAN and gained 7 points and contributed to CARDOW HUNTERS' 2-3-0.  GRAY BEAR 
has lost to IRONTOWER, falling 3 points, while helping make CARDOW HUNTERS a 2-3-0 
turn.  Defending his title for another turn, CORKY kept CARDOW HUNTERS' warrior, 
BEARFOOT, from claiming the throne.  Tell me, is nothing sacred?  I have heard from 
unimpeachable sources that The Yellow Dog Tavern uses trolls in their stew.  Talk 
about gristle!   
     He who challenges well, fights well.  He who avoids without cause, shall lose 
for good reasons.  My mama told me that one.   
     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.  Congratulations go out to HOUSE 
CANNITH, with IRONTOWER revenging a bloodfeud against GRAY BEAR of CARDOW HUNTERS.  
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 you see my quill in DULLENS again, 
farewell-- Alarond the Scribe
