                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, friends and fiends, welcome to your friendly neighborhood spyreport.  
I doubt TALCAMA will ever be the same.  It seems the training can make the 
difference, as CENTER FOR OLDS is pushed out of top team by SHEPHERDS, who came from 
4th with a 3-1-0 this turn.  Now keep the taverns open late tonight, for there are 
sorrows to drown for OF WOLF AND MAN II, whose 0-0-0 this turn dropped them by 6 into 
8th.  DEVIL'S DEN stable has parlayed this turn's 3-2-0 into a 6 space move up the 
rankings.  This brings them up to 5th place.  Good work, guys!  The GET OUTTA MY WAY 
guild has had a 3-1-0 turn and deserves to be watched in the future.  You never know 
where this kind of thing can lead.  And let's see, CHATROOMMATE fought KOOL HERC and 
gained 25 points and contributed to CENTER FOR OLDS' 2-2-0.  KOOL HERC has lost to 
CHATROOMMATE, falling 16 points, while helping make HIP HOP HEROES a 0-5-0 turn.  Due 
to his absence and inability to defend the throne, SUSHI has lost the title of 
Duelmaster.  We should ask MESHACH about the thrill of victory, and what being the 
new Duelmaster does for a warrior, he's now the one to ask.  By the way, was that our 
Duelmaster that I saw last night, cramped under the table at The Original Arthur's 
Last Stand?   
     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 CENTER FOR OLDS 
stable was the most avoided team this turn.  Come on TALCAMA, what are you afraid of? 
And guess who avoided CENTER FOR OLDS stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was 
SHEPHERDS.  Anyone surprised?  Well, sports fans, take notice that FREE PORN from GET 
OUTTA MY WAY was TALCAMA's most challenged warrior this turn.  MESHACH of SHEPHERDS 
had better have a good reason for challenging down 10 points in a challenge which he 
won.  I thought MESHACH showed great skill and promise when he beat FREE PORN.  All 
right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  Kudos go out to DESTITUTE NOBLE this turn, for revenging GET OUTTA 
MY WAY's bloodfeud against CENTER FOR OLDS' warrior CARBONATED MILK.  Well done.  A 
brave warrior does not carry a red shield, he has nothing to cover or hide when the 
fight is over.  Consider well.   
     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
