                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, in LYRATILAN a quiet thief gets rich, but a quiet spymaster gets poor. 
So bring me ale and harken to my tidbits of news.  It seems the training can make the 
difference, as SHEWISH BUFFET is pushed out of top team by WHEEL OF TIME, who came 
from 3rd with a 4-1-0 this turn.  And let's see, THE STAND fought BLOODY MARY and 
gained 14 points and contributed to ARCANE BOOKSHELF's 2-0-0.  BLOODY MARY has lost 
to THE STAND, falling 12 points, while helping make SAY MY NAME a 1-3-0 turn.  
Defending his title for another turn, HURIN kept THE MIDDLE WAY 4's warrior, GASPAR 
HUELCO, from claiming the throne.  Tell me, is nothing sacred?  I have heard from 
unimpeachable sources that The Piper's Rest uses trolls in their stew.  Talk about 
gristle!   
     The crowd's roar, the smell of iron and leather, mixed with sweat, what more 
could a warrior ask of life?  Well, besides that.   
     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.  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, LYRATILAN, the taverns have old wine, and young serving 
girls.  Who could ask for more?  Always good to rest in LYRATILAN, but never good to 
wear out my welcome.  Look for me in future turns.  Until you see my quill in 
LYRATILAN again, farewell-- Alarond the Scribe

something like that. -- Gaspar Huelco
