                                      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.  It seems the training can make the difference, as 
KISS ME is pushed out of top team by MIDDLE WAY 15, who came from 2nd with a 4-1-0 
this turn.  And let's see, MEDAN QUIZZAR fought SHOUT IT OUT LOUD and gained 10 
points and contributed to MIDDLE WAY 15's 4-1-0.  CROSSTOWN TRAFFIC has lost to 
FARLIN MEEKS, falling 4 points, while helping make ARE YOU ? a 2-2-0 turn.  Our 
Duelmaster has lost, folks, lost to M. CHARDINEE, BUT BORT is still the Duelmaster 
because he has the most recognition points!  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?   
     Oriental wise man once say, 'Hiding behind shields prevents proper sun tanning.' 
Inscrutable, but true.  100,000 YEARS of KISS ME had better have a good reason for 
challenging down 8 points in a challenge which it won.  I thought 100,000 YEARS 
showed great skill and promise when it overcame IYAN KENNIS.  All right, so I slept 
through it!  Big deal!   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  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?  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
