                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, friends and fiends, welcome to your friendly neighborhood spyreport.  
I doubt ALJAFIR will ever be the same.  And let's see, HURRICANE FLOYD fought BUNDY 
and gained 16 points and contributed to ALL THINGS FLOYD's 3-1-0.  BUNDY has lost to 
HURRICANE FLOYD, falling 13 points, while helping make ENFORCERS a 2-2-0 turn.  
Defending his title for another turn, LIMB BIZKIT kept ALJAFIR's warrior, VETERAN 
MERCENARY, from claiming the throne.  Can someone confirm a rumor for me?  I hear the 
top team makes their losing fighters do dishes at The Vile Vizier until they win.  
Maybe?   
     Oriental wise man once say, 'Hiding behind shields prevents proper sun tanning.' 
Inscrutable, but true.  Well, sports fans, take notice that KENNY CHESTNEY from BODY 
OF MUSIC was ALJAFIR's most challenged warrior this turn.   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  We'd like to remind certain teams not to rob the graves of their 
enemies.  You know who you are; and it's considered rude.   
     Thought for the day, a new sword shines bright, but the notched sword sings the 
sweetest.  Always good to rest in ALJAFIR, 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

Padre -- Definitely privacy.  I have an hypothesis that all those minds crammed into
the density of a city, all thinking at once, causes mental static proportionate to
the population density, and impairs creativity. -- Jorja

One-four, and we're doing BETTER?  You can't imagine how glad we are that Jorja
doesn't do the Dark Arena.  Of course, if she did pay that much attention, maybe we
could get STRATEGY changes. -- Gidjit Hayes
