                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, friends and fiends, welcome to your friendly neighborhood spyreport.  
I doubt ALJAFIR will ever be the same.  It seems the training can make the 
difference, as MIDDLE WAY is pushed out of top team by 82ND ILLINOIS, who came from 
3rd with a 2-0-0 this turn.  And let's see, DEBRA ELSITH fought EMBEZZLING SCRIBE and 
gained 14 points and contributed to MIDDLE WAY's 4-1-0.  This week's Duelmaster bout 
was between SENLUM NOSH and our Duelmaster LT. OLSEN, making a challenge.  The 
attempts to dethrone the Duelmaster have failed, and LT. OLSEN remains ALJAFIR's top 
warrior for another turn.  Tell me, is nothing sacred?  I have heard from 
unimpeachable sources that The Vile Vizier uses trolls in their stew.  Talk about 
gristle!   
     He who challenges well, fights well.  He who avoids without cause, shall lose 
for good reasons.  My mama told me that one.   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  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.  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
