                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, friends and fiends, welcome to your friendly neighborhood spyreport.  
I doubt ZUWAYZA will ever be the same.  It seems the training can make the 
difference, as VISIONS V2 is pushed out of top team by THE MAGNIFICENT MAGS, who came 
from 2nd with a 3-2-0 this turn.  We should ask PUTRID DEFILER 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 Drunken Ox?   
     He who challenges well, fights well.  He who avoids without cause, shall lose 
for good reasons.  My mama told me that one.  I also notice that the MAN OR BEAST? 
stable was the most avoided team this turn.  Come on ZUWAYZA, what are you afraid of? 
And guess who avoided MAN OR BEAST? stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was MAN 
OR BEAST?.  Anyone surprised?  Well, sports fans, take notice that HOUSE BEAUTIFUL 
from THE MAGNIFICENT MAGS was ZUWAYZA's most challenged warrior this turn.  In a fit 
of brilliance or of stupidity (hard to say sometimes), TREME challenged MOTHER GHEA 
NEWS today, facing a 28 difference in recognition.  But when the dust settled, TREME 
had lost to MOTHER GHEA NEWS, and VISIONS V2 left TREME doing chores when they went 
to the tavern.  Better luck next time.  In a brave attempt, ZYANE from VISIONS V2 
challenged up 18 points to fight HOUSE BEAUTIFUL from the THE MAGNIFICENT MAGS 
stable.  ZYANE perhaps got his just desserts, seeing as he bested HOUSE BEAUTIFUL and 
ended up with 98 recognition points.   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  Is it really true that ZUWAYZA has more dishwashers per capita that 
fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...   
     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

Four-one!  That's a great turn-around, but can we maintain it?  Time will tell. --
Mother Ghea News

     But never in advance.

How strange that Man or Beast? has been avoiding itself.

Warm Breeze -- You're too wimpy for me. -- Hammer Review

Treme -- You simply don't understand decorating. -- House Beautiful
P.S.  I was all set to make some REALLY CUTTING remarks, but then I remembered that
beauty starts within, and I didn't want to mess myself up with that.  With courtesy
and five skills headed your way, I don't feel you have anything to complain about.

Zyane -- Dear boy, you need to give more thought to your footprint.  It's HUGE.  That
is not good. -- Mother Ghea News
P.S.  Foot-binding, perhaps?

SURELY I can't be expected to plan a wedding for a SLAVE? -- Everybride

Open Arms -- Ah, yes, that chain of well-known hostelries (hostilities?) across
Alastari.  I'd give you a rating of... three stars.  Not entirely your fault, except
as building on the bank of a river that sometimes rises could be called your fault.
All that muddy water in the basement can really degrade an environment. -- Travel
Weekly

Travel -- Don't be narrow-minded.  It is proper that the rivers shall rise in their
seasons, bringing moisture and new fertility to the land. -- Mother Ghea News

Mom -- But NOT into the basements and ground floors of buildings.  That's unhealthy.
-- Travel
