                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, in TOBIR a quiet thief gets rich, but a quiet spymaster gets poor.  So 
bring me ale and harken to my tidbits of news.  And let's see, ITALIAN STALLION 
fought SCRUFF and gained 11 points and contributed to FOREIGN LEGION's 2-3-0.  GEORGE 
FOREMUN has lost to GINKOR, falling 3 points, while helping make ALL THE MUN'S MEN a 
2-3-0 turn.  We should ask BWUCE REE about the thrill of victory, and what being the 
new Duelmaster does for a warrior, she's now the one to ask.  By the way, was that 
our Duelmaster that I saw last night, cramped under the table at The Deeproot Inn?   
     He who challenges well, fights well.  He who avoids without cause, shall lose 
for good reasons.  My mama told me that one.  THE DOGHOUSE has cause to stand tall, 
as they were TOBIR's most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a team to 
beat.  And avoiding THE DOGHOUSE more than any other team we find HIGH SCHOOL PROM.  
TOBIR, are we going to accept, or respect this sort of thing?   
     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.  This is not good to see.  Why pray 
tell has SPIDER MUN been sent to the Dark Arena by ALL THE MUN'S MEN?  And why with a 
4-1-0 record??  A brave warrior does not carry a red shield, he has nothing to cover 
or hide when the fight is over.  Consider well.   
     Thought for the day, a new sword shines bright, but the notched sword sings the 
sweetest.  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 TOBIR again, farewell-- 
Alarond the Scribe

Weston -- Oh, sure, kick a dog when he's down!  Well, figuratively speaking, and YOU
were the one who hit me on the head in the FIRST place.  Talk about a boy not to be
trusted with a dog! -- Ginkor the bitter and would-be biter

Molyneux -- A good dog can always find the time to lie around in the sun and snooze.
It's part of our basic training, and if we can lie around and snooze with a person,
even better!  We can HELP you nap, even better than cats can.  But, seriously, taking
naps at odd moments is an art, and we dogs have it. -- Scruff
P.S.  Very refreshing, when you get down to it.

A Civilized Criminal?  Now, THERE is an oxymoron.  I feel sure that we have before
gone into the reasons why we believe this name to be a cruel joke, so I won't do it
now/again.  But it IS. -- Echanosarah

Bombay -- I love wrestling with people.  And, of course, it's always EASIER when the
people are smaller than I am.  But I wouldn't really have bit your face off.  That
was just, um, gestural hyperbole in the heat of the moment.  Yeah, that's what it
was, gestural hyperbole. -- Whole Mutt

This "Trustworthy Scribe" is a silly fellow.  Feathers?  Ridiculous.  A bird thing,
and they feel strange in your mouth and if it's a duck, they taste funny.  Oily.  Not
that the Trustworthy Scribe is a duck, though it might be better if he WAS, but
still, he has too many feathers about his person. -- Lady Mutt

Ed. -- It seems a courtesy, and we Dwarves of Hkalhums are nothing if not courteous.
-- Percy Stonebender, Hkalhums Dwarf

     Indeed.  I feel sure it's more elegant than a soda can too. -- Ed., duly
     impressed
