                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, friends and fiends, welcome to your friendly neighborhood spyreport.  
I doubt DULLENS will ever be the same.  It seems the training can make the 
difference, as ARCANE ROYALTY is pushed out of top team by CARDOW HUNTERS, who came 
from 2nd with a 4-1-0 this turn.  And let's see, BLIND OWL fought QUEEN OFTHE RYCHE 
and gained 14 points and contributed to CARDOW HUNTERS' 4-1-0.  QUEEN OFTHE RYCHE has 
lost to BLIND OWL, falling 11 points, while helping make ARCANE ROYALTY a 1-4-0 turn. 
Defending his title for another turn, BOUTTE kept CARDOW HUNTERS' warrior, 
STARSINGER, from claiming the throne.  Can someone confirm a rumor for me?  I hear 
the top team makes their losing fighters do dishes at Arthur's Last Stand until they 
win.  Maybe?   
     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.   
     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 the sun next rises and my pen sets to paper-- Alarond the 
Scribe

Not one of our better turns.  Two-three again, but I--me--I lost to a standby.
Embarrassing.  It was Flying Cloud and, amazingly, the Little Gray Bird who got the
wins.  I have heard it said that every dog has its day, and it would seem that every
bird does, too.  Odd. -- Starsinger
