                                      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, SSG 8 fought MAG 
PRIAR and gained 22 points and contributed to MEDAL OF HONOR 104's 3-1-1.  MAG PRIAR 
has lost to SSG 8, falling 16 points, while helping make MIDDLE WAY 15 a 3-2-0 turn.  
Defending his title for another turn, FARLIN MEEKS kept ARE YOU ?'s warrior, 
CROSSTOWN TRAFFIC, from claiming the throne.  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.  The most challenged warrior this turn was 
MIDDLE WAY 15's warrior NYSSA RYE.  More fighters challenged her than challenged the 
Duelmaster!   
     The Dark Arena is for those who cannot win, not who cannot lose with grace.  
Dignity in life or death is the warrior's creed.  ARE YOU ? has lost LOVE OR 
CONFUSION to the arena in the sky, but they don't seem to be worried.  What do you 
expect from 6-28-0?  A brave warrior does not carry a red shield, he has nothing to 
cover or hide when the fight is over.  Consider well.   
     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

Our congratulations to Monty Python and Kinky McKink, tourney victors. -- Jorja and
the Middle Way

Four-one?  This is amazing!  And me the duelmaster, which I did not expect,
especially, I didn't expect to "savagely defeat" Crosstown Traffic.  I cussed the
traffic often enough, but it never occurred to me that I could DO something about it.
