                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, in SOLVEN a quiet thief gets rich, but a quiet spymaster gets poor.  
So bring me ale and harken to my tidbits of news.  And let's see, HILLILI NAKAL 
fought POLITE BEGGAR and gained 15 points and contributed to MIDDLE WAY 15's 1-4-0.  
MEDAN QUIZZAR has lost to VISITING ORC, falling 20 points, while helping make MIDDLE 
WAY 15 a 1-4-0 turn.  The attempts to dethrone the Duelmaster have failed, and ROMO 
remains SOLVEN's top warrior for another turn.  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?   
     The crowd's roar, the smell of iron and leather, mixed with sweat, what more 
could a warrior ask of life?  Well, besides that.  I also notice that the SERPENTS 
HOLD stable was the most avoided team this turn.  Come on SOLVEN, what are you afraid 
of?  And guess who avoided SERPENTS HOLD stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was 
WRATHMEN.  Anyone surprised?   
     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.   
     Thought for the day, a new sword shines bright, but the notched sword sings the 
sweetest.  Always good to rest in SOLVEN, but never good to wear out my welcome.  
Look for me in future turns.  Until you see my quill in SOLVEN again, farewell-- 
Alarond the Scribe

Kharona -- Who else is there? -- Lulu Orlene

Romo -- I can't say I'm surprised.  But I can say I'm relieved to be done with all
this. -- Gilly Manderson

Kharadmon -- Just a note about my general policy:  I will almost always provide
graduation details on request, but seldom otherwise (because I'm lazy).  Ask, and all
will be revealed. -- Jorja

Aha!  The Kung-Fu Master, he who spurns weapons, eats cold steel at my hands!  Take
that! -- Holm Joubert

I have to wonder about these Ambitious Guards and the way they keep coming.  You'd
think they would NOTICE what happens, wouldn't you? -- Medan Quizzar

Kharona -- And here we are again. -- Lulu Orlene

Snakes.  There should be a rule against snakes. -- Farlin Meeks, considering a case
