                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, friends and fiends, welcome to your friendly neighborhood spyreport.  
I doubt TOBIR will ever be the same.  This week's Duelmaster bout was between PENRICH 
and our Duelmaster TIPPI TURTLE, making a Bloodfeud.  The attempts to dethrone the 
Duelmaster have failed, and TIPPI TURTLE remains TOBIR's top warrior for another 
turn.  Tell me, is nothing sacred?  I have heard from unimpeachable sources that The 
Deeproot Inn uses trolls in their stew.  Talk about gristle!   
     The crowd's roar, the smell of iron and leather, mixed with sweat, what more 
could a warrior ask of life?  Well, besides that.  THE DEATH SQUAD has cause to stand 
tall, as they were TOBIR's most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a team 
to beat.  And guess who avoided THE DEATH SQUAD stable the most?  Believe it or not, 
it was F WORDS.  Anyone surprised?  Well, sports fans, take notice that MAIA from 
OTAGO HIGHLANDERS was TOBIR's most challenged warrior this turn.  In a brave attempt, 
FOIN from F WORDS challenged up 21 points to fight MAIA from the OTAGO HIGHLANDERS 
stable.  FOIN perhaps got his just desserts, seeing as he defeated MAIA and ended up 
with 105 recognition points.   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  The Deeproot Inn declares a free round for TIPPI TURTLE and all of THE 
DEATH SQUAD, for having revenged OTAGO HIGHLANDERS' PENRICH for killing one of their 
comrades.  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.   
     Remember, blood on the purple robe does not change it from a purple robe.  Dare 
to fight bravely.  Always good to rest in TOBIR, 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

Jorja -- Please extend our congratulation to Bill on his invite to the Isle.  We'll
miss the competition.  Furthermore, please extend our apologies for the paperwork
snafu that pitted Filibuster against Lasso two weeks in a row. -- Centauri

Hock?  Is that, like, a heel bone or something?  I had one of those to chew on once.
It was good. -- Brown Bear

Foin -- Thanks, I always wanted to see someone do that. -- Bill Bitemore

Arrnold -- I watched you closely and got you when your attention wandered.  Ha! --
The Watch Dog

The Veteran Mercenary guy is okay.  Not playful, but okay.  Not a dog-kicker. --
Bigfoots

The Fratsfa Noble tried to "put on the Dog" with me, but he didn't have a clue.  I
bit him a good one, really hit a vein. -- Lasso
