                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, friends and fiends, welcome to your friendly neighborhood spyreport.  
I doubt LYRATILAN will ever be the same.  And let's see, HARMONY fought PUPPET and 
gained 25 points and contributed to MADTOWN's 3-2-0.  PUPPET has lost to HARMONY, 
falling 16 points, while helping make ERRATA a 2-1-0 turn.  The attempts to dethrone 
the Duelmaster have failed, and SYMPATHY remains LYRATILAN's top warrior for another 
turn.  By the way, was that our Duelmaster that I saw last night, cramped under the 
table at The Mourngrym Inn and Tavern?   
     The crowd's roar, the smell of iron and leather, mixed with sweat, what more 
could a warrior ask of life?  Well, besides that.  MADTOWN has cause to stand tall, 
as they were LYRATILAN's most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a team to 
beat.  And avoiding MADTOWN more than any other team we find ERRATA.  LYRATILAN, are 
we going to accept, or respect this sort of thing?   
     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.   
     Remember, blood on the purple robe does not change it from a purple robe.  Dare 
to fight bravely.  Always good to rest in LYRATILAN, but never good to wear out my 
welcome.  Look for me in future turns.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets to 
paper-- Alarond the Scribe

Hippolyta -- The more I think about it, the more it seems to me that whoever named

you meant to be subtly insulting.  Suggesting that you aren't much to look at, you
know:  horse-faced, as the saying goes.  You ought to go beat up your manager. --
Trellin Xiss, font of good intentions

Jifi -- What is this?  Nobody ever told me that Shews don't have blood!  I go to take
a friendly little nip, and first it's like biting an old boot, and one that hasn't
been cleaned recently, either, and then...ptui!  What IS that stuff? -- X. Rolph Tupp
the annoyed

Maelstrom -- We attacked simultaneously?  I thought we were supposed to take turns.
At least when we DID start taking turns, you let me go first.  I'm really thrilled to
have my first win, too.  Let me buy you a drink!  Let me buy you several drinks! --
Feder Jornis

Mason Dixon -- Drat.  It bugs me when people go drawing LINES in the sand.  I don't
see the point, you know?  Lines, lines, lines, pah!  And no instructions, either.  Do
I toe the line, walk the line, tear along the line, what?  Give me a clue here. --
Foirene Ilmer

Stan Dauff -- Well!  I suppose that rude and inconsiderate behavior is all I can
EXPECT from a mangy werewolf. -- Elindor Imarda
P.S.  You were very FREE with your hands.
