Hail Lyratilan!

     Can you believe it!  I am headed to the Isle!  It has been a great run here and
I could not have done it without the help of my good friends Loial and Thom.  Thanks
for all the help and I hope to see you two follow me soon.  Now I am off to visit old
teammates Mat Cauthon and Ingtar.  Cheers Lyratilan!

Lord Protector Hurin

                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, LYRATILAN?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed 
to see THE KILL RIFF win a fight and gain 25 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, ARIZONA 
BATES beat THE STAND and THE STAND lost 12 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And if 
variety is the spice of life, LYRATILAN may be getting bland, as HURIN stays top dog 
in the city.  Kickbacks and bribes, kickbacks and bribes, how else do you think some 
of these guys win their fights?  Skill?  Ha!   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.  
What's the big D?  WHEEL OF TIME was the most avoided team?  Bunch of lily livered... 
grumble... mumble... curse...  And who led the way in this mass act of cowardice?  
Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It was ARCANE BOOKSHELF.  Ha ha ha ha!  Ooh, I'm 
frightfully impressed, SIMON was this turn's most challenged warrior.  Watch that ego 
swell, sports fans.   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  It's about time LERON MARSH got beat for picking on 
warriors like AAN'ALLEIN.  Bravo, WHEEL OF TIME.  See you at The Piper's Rest.  
Titanium shields and bamboo daggers, guess what brave team is developing these kinds 
of weapons?   
     I was about to buy a new quill pen the other day, but some fighter took it for 
an epee.  Forgive me for writing with a dagger.  Just wait 'till next time I show up 
here, I won't be so nice!  So nyaaah!  I see the crowds are getting restless, I must 
leave now-- Snide Clemens

Indiana James -- My thanks!  I am out of Stillgards doghouse now. -- Jain

Bloody Mary -- I swear I did not say your name three times.  Cheater! -- Aan'allein

All -- I am a bit surprised at Hurin's success here.  He is my 2nd PS to ADM here is
what he looks like.  15-11-11-13(+3)-17-9-11.  Favs, LO, VL, MOD, learns Riposte.  He
is headed to Home Guard and semi-retirement. -- Stillgard

Our congratulations to Hurin. -- Jorja and those who walk the Middle Way

Padre -- Good!  I enjoy your company. -- Jorja

Oh-fer this time.  Bummer.  Mind you, as fights go, they were all good ones even
though we lost.  We salute all the bad-tempered, um, people who defeated us, and if
we aren't saluting happily, at least the respect is genuine. -- Keokuk Moon
