                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, in MALCORN a quiet thief gets rich, but a quiet spymaster gets poor.  
So bring me ale and harken to my tidbits of news.  It seems the training can make the 
difference, as THE GRAIL KNIGHTS is pushed out of top team by BLOODSWORN, who came 
from 2nd with a 5-0-0 this turn.  MALCORN welcomes a new team to our ranks, 
unofficially of course, for now.  But welcome nonetheless to PRETTY BOYS.  Let's see 
what you can do.  And let's see, TRACIE fought EMBEZZLING SCRIBE and gained 16 points 
and contributed to PRETTY BOYS' 3-2-0.  Defending his title for another turn, SIR TOO 
DUMB kept GREENWARDENS' warrior, BADGER, from claiming the throne.  Can someone 
confirm a rumor for me?  I hear the top team makes their losing fighters do dishes at 
The Victory Tavern until they win.  Maybe?   
     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 GREENWARDENS stable 
was the most avoided team this turn.  Come on MALCORN, what are you afraid of?  And 
avoiding GREENWARDENS more than any other team we find THE GRAIL KNIGHTS.  MALCORN, 
are we going to accept, or respect this sort of thing?  Well, sports fans, take 
notice that SNOWFOOT from GREENWARDENS was MALCORN's most challenged warrior this 
turn.  Tsk, tsk, tsk.  VITAE, does your manager know you're challenging down 38 
points to fight SNOWFOOT from GREENWARDENS?  I thought challenges were for warriors, 
not cowards looking for easy wins.  VITAE overcame SNOWFOOT, is nothing sacred?   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  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.  Always good to rest in MALCORN, 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
