                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, friends and fiends, welcome to your friendly neighborhood spyreport.  
I doubt MALCORN will ever be the same.  It seems the training can make the 
difference, as STARBASE 5 is pushed out of top team by GREENWARDENS, who came from 
3rd with a 4-1-0 this turn.  And let's see, STONEBOW fought CAPTURED ORC and gained 
18 points and contributed to GREENWARDENS' 4-1-0.  DROVANITAR LIX has lost to AGATE, 
falling 2 points, while helping make STARBASE 5 a 1-4-0 turn.  The attempts to 
dethrone the Duelmaster have failed, and QRYSYS remains MALCORN's top warrior for 
another turn.  By the way, was that our Duelmaster that I saw last night, cramped 
under the table at The Victory Tavern?   
     I tell you, a green quarterstaff lasts longer than a seasoned sapling.  A basher 
friend of mine assures me this is true.   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  Is it really true that MALCORN has more dishwashers per capita that 
fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...   
     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 the sun next rises and my pen sets to paper-- 
Alarond the Scribe

                                     PERSONAL ADS

Mordant Deserter -- And that was my nice side. -- Six Kix Lix

Silverbird -- Gender is not an issue.  I hold no favorites in whom I choose to engage
in my affairs.  Care for a drink? -- Mistress

Bristlecone -- You have to admit, that was close.  So close that I held my breath all
the way to the infirmary where I nearly suffocated myself... so don't go thinking I
nearly died because of your toothpick stabbing me. -- Starlyn Fyrefly

Silverbird -- I might be interested in your proposal, but I think Mistress might get
jealous.

Stonebow -- Cut you off at the knees, eh?  Short men have their advantages.  So I'll
see you at moonrise? -- Mistress

Doc West -- I apologize for the silence, but I assure you business still gets
completed.  It has been brought to my attention that there has been an incident on
another ship.  They might have just brought a war to our solar system.  I need to
collect more data to be sure before jumping to any conclusions.  Zeus is allowing me
to continue the investigation on my own as he has his own matters.  I will not fail
him.  We have been working together for quite some time now, Doctor, and I believe
that you have exactly what I need...or let me rephrase it...you can create exactly
what I need.  I am sending a few cyborgs out on a recon mission in a little while.  I
know it's short notice, but I need something that can lead them to the outer edge of
our system where they will be briefed on the mission from that point.  Oh...and if
it's possible I need him to be adapted to live in our harsh environment, that is,
without any oxygen, etc.  If you need any more materials, just say the word, I'll
have Apok ready to get you what you need. -- Burk The Cyborg

Drovanitar Lix -- Ugh, you certainly got your lix in on me! -- Rockwood
P.S.  And I hope you got stone chips in your tongue.

Stariel -- Shall we ever stop meeting like this? -- Agate

Starlyn Fyrefly -- Do you know that the oldest known tree was CUT DOWN by scientists
who wanted to find out how old it was?  Something wrong there. -- Bristlecone

Apok -- The handicapper hates me.  Why?  What did I ever do to him? -- Stonebow

Mistress -- I don't really need one. -- Silverbird

H.P.L. West -- And don't trust scientists and their "electronics" and stuff.
Remember, they kill inoffensive trees who have lived thousands of years just so they
can find out how old they are.  This is sick. -- Bristlecone

Herbert P.L. West -- Hmm, I suppose someone has to provide work for the Dark Arena
crew.  Although from the point of view of our team, Trog wasn't doing that badly. --
Silverbird

Stariel -- Ah... got one of those siege balistas aimed at you and ready to let go
with a spear-sized arrow if he gets just a little too much angrier?  Tricky. --
Rockwood

Stariel -- Ah, damn, I hope losing to me didn't put your manager over the edge! --
Agate

My apologies, I have tried for three days to get this episode together, but it's
easier to herd cats than get the right words in the right order this week. -- the
