                                      SPY REPORT

     Busy, busy, busy, lots of things happening in SOLVEN this turn, and let's start 
with a look at some of the teams.  And let's see, CRANKY OLD ROOSTER fought BALISONG 
and gained 19 points and contributed to HENPCS' 2-3-0.  CHICKEN GUARD has lost to 
FEDORA LINDE, falling 19 points, while helping make HENPCS a 2-3-0 turn.  Due to its 
absence and inability to defend the throne, ASP has lost the title of Duelmaster.  
And all eyes were on THOME this turn as it ascended to the throne of Duelmaster.  
SOLVEN has a new victor!  By the way, was that our Duelmaster that I saw last night, 
cramped under the table at The Victory Tavern?   
     I tell you, a green quarterstaff lasts longer than a seasoned sapling.  A basher 
friend of mine assures me this is true.   
     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.   
     I like this place, SOLVEN, the taverns have old wine, and young serving girls.  
Who could ask for more?  Well, I'm burning daylight here in SOLVEN and I've a long 
road ahead of me.  Happy Trails.  Until you see my quill in SOLVEN again, farewell-- 
Alarond the Scribe
