                                      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, PYTHON fought ERRIS LEONA and 
gained 16 points and contributed to SERPENTS HOLD's 2-0-0.  ERRIS LEONA has lost to 
PYTHON, falling 11 points, while helping make MIDDLE WAY 15 a 3-2-0 turn.  Due to its 
absence and inability to defend the throne, BLOODY KINK has lost the title of 
Duelmaster.  We should ask LYNNIS NALL about the thrill of victory, and what being 
the new Duelmaster does for a warrior, she's now the one to ask.  Can someone confirm 
a rumor for me?  I hear the top team makes their losing fighters do dishes at The 
Victory Tavern until they win.  Maybe?   
     He who challenges well, fights well.  He who avoids without cause, shall lose 
for good reasons.  My mama told me that one.   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  Is it really true that SOLVEN 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 you see my quill in SOLVEN again, 
farewell-- Alarond the Scribe
