                                      SPY REPORT

     Busy, busy, busy, lots of things happening in TALCAMA this turn, and let's start 
with a look at some of the teams.  It seems the training can make the difference, as 
THE GRATEFUL UNDEAD is pushed out of top team by CENTER FOR OLDS, who came from 2nd 
with a 4-1-1 this turn.  LUROCIAN PRIDE stable has parlayed this turn's 2-2-0 into a 
5 space move up the rankings.  This brings them up to 5th place.  Good work, guys!  
The CENTER FOR OLDS guild has had a 4-1-1 turn and deserves to be watched in the 
future.  You never know where this kind of thing can lead.  And let's see, DELION 
fought BOATSWAIN and gained 25 points and contributed to OF WOLF AND MAN II's 4-0-1.  
SUSHI has lost to MEOUSA, falling 19 points, while helping make SUPERIOR FORCES 6N a 
1-2-1 turn.  Well done, TALCAMA, the Duelmaster was this turn's most challenged 
warrior.  Perhaps ANONYMISSUS is not as thrilled, being challenged 2 times.  The 
attempts to dethrone the Duelmaster have failed, and ANONYMISSUS remains TALCAMA's 
top warrior for another turn.  Tell me, is nothing sacred?  I have heard from 
unimpeachable sources that The Original Arthur's Last Stand uses trolls in their 
stew.  Talk about gristle!   
     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 OF WOLF AND MAN II 
stable was the most avoided team this turn.  Come on TALCAMA, what are you afraid of? 
And avoiding OF WOLF AND MAN II more than any other team we find CENTER FOR OLDS.  
TALCAMA, are we going to accept, or respect this sort of thing?   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  LUROCIAN PRIDE made what looks to be a tough decision this turn, as 
they sent TIALIS, with a record of 5-7-0, to TIALIS death.  Farewell, his.  You gotta 
do what you gotta do.  OF WOLF AND MAN 9 has sent ROYCE to the Dark Arena.  The deed 
is done.  Lift the ale, and toast the memory.  Had I not seen it, it would be hard to 
believe.  SLICE was sent to the Dark Arena and lived to tell about it!  Makes you 
think, no?  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.   
     I like this place, TALCAMA, the taverns have old wine, and young serving girls.  
Who could ask for more?  Always good to rest in TALCAMA, but never good to wear out 
my welcome.  Look for me in future turns.  Until you see my quill in TALCAMA again, 
farewell-- Alarond the Scribe
