                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, friends and fiends, welcome to your friendly neighborhood spyreport.  
I doubt TOBIR will ever be the same.  It seems the training can make the difference, 
as THE DEATH SQUAD is pushed out of top team by F WORDS, who came from 3rd with a 
3-2-0 this turn.  And let's see, FAITH fought LUG NUT and gained 35 points and 
contributed to ZOMBIE SQUAD's 1-3-0.  LUG NUT has lost to FAITH, falling 22 points, 
while helping make THE DEATH SQUAD a 3-2-0 turn.  Due to his absence and inability to 
defend the throne, SPIKE has lost the title of Duelmaster.  We should ask FAITH about 
the thrill of victory, and what being the new Duelmaster does for a warrior, he'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?   
     I tell you, a green quarterstaff lasts longer than a seasoned sapling.  A basher 
friend of mine assures me this is true.  I also notice that the THE DEATH SQUAD 
stable was the most avoided team this turn.  Come on TOBIR, what are you afraid of?  
And guess who avoided THE DEATH SQUAD stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was F 
WORDS.  Anyone surprised?   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  Is it really true that TOBIR has more dishwashers per capita that fighters? 
Just thought I'd ask...   
     Remember, blood on the purple robe does not change it from a purple robe.  Dare 
to fight bravely.  Well, I'm burning daylight here in TOBIR 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
