                                      SPY REPORT

     Busy, busy, busy, lots of things happening in TOBIR this turn, and let's start 
with a look at some of the teams.  ODB has lost to BROWN WIDOW, falling 14 points, 
while helping make WU-TANG FOREVER a 3-2-0 turn.  Well done, TOBIR, the Duelmaster 
was this turn's most challenged warrior.  Perhaps WILLOW is not as thrilled, being 
challenged 3 times.  BARIUM ENEMY challenged for the Duelmastership this turn, 
attempting to dethrone ZOMBIE SQUAD's warrior.  Defending his title for another turn, 
WILLOW kept PERIODIC STATEMENTS' warrior, BARIUM ENEMY, from claiming the throne.  By 
the way, was that our Duelmaster that I saw last night, cramped under the table at 
The Victory Tavern?   
     He who challenges well, fights well.  He who avoids without cause, shall lose 
for good reasons.  My mama told me that one.  In a brave attempt, MANSION from LIVING 
LARGE challenged up 22 points to fight MAN MOUNTAIN from the THE DEATH SQUAD stable.  
MANSION perhaps got his just desserts, seeing as he overcame MAN MOUNTAIN and ended 
up with 98 recognition points.  IT'S A QUINOA! of THE DEATH SQUAD had better have a 
good reason for challenging down 14 points in a challenge which he won.  I thought 
IT'S A QUINOA! showed great skill and promise when he bested BIG RED.  All right, so 
I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  A brave warrior does not carry a red shield, he has nothing to cover or 
hide when the fight is over.  Consider well.   
     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 you see my quill in TOBIR again, 
farewell-- Alarond the Scribe
