                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, in LAPUR 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 VENUSIANS is pushed out of top team by BOHICA, who came from 3rd with 
a 4-0-1 this turn.  CLAN CROW stable has parlayed this turn's 4-1-0 into a 5 space 
move up the rankings.  This brings them up to 8th place.  Good work, guys!  The FORCE 
OF NATURE guild has had a 3-0-0 turn and deserves to be watched in the future.  You 
never know where this kind of thing can lead.  And let's see, SALAMANDER fought MAD 
DOG and gained 25 points and contributed to TRAIL OF TEARS' 3-2-0.  SCORPIO has lost 
to FEELIP O'BOOBAGAN, falling 12 points, while helping make ZODIAC a 1-4-0 turn.  
This week's Duelmaster bout was between STONE GOLEM and our Duelmaster RED HOT CHILI, 
making a Dark Arena Challenge.  Defending hers title for another turn, RED HOT CHILI 
kept DARK ARENA's warrior, STONE GOLEM, from claiming the throne.  By the way, was 
that our Duelmaster that I saw last night, cramped under the table at The Burning 
Tree?   
     The crowd's roar, the smell of iron and leather, mixed with sweat, what more 
could a warrior ask of life?  Well, besides that.  CREATURE FEATURE has cause to 
stand tall, as they were LAPUR's most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a 
team to beat.  And guess who avoided CREATURE FEATURE stable the most?  Believe it or 
not, it was WILL DUEL 4 MEAD.  Anyone surprised?  Well, sports fans, take notice that 
RINDEL from MID EARTH was LAPUR's most challenged warrior this turn.  LIME of WILL 
DUEL 4 MEAD had better have a good reason for challenging down 10 points in a 
challenge which she won.  I thought LIME showed great skill and promise when she 
defeated COPPER COMPACTER.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  Had I not seen it, it would be hard to believe.  RED HOT CHILI was 
sent to the Dark Arena and lived to tell about it!  Makes you think, no?  Is it 
really true that LAPUR has more dishwashers per capita that fighters?  Just thought 
I'd ask...   
     Thought for the day, a new sword shines bright, but the notched sword sings the 
sweetest.  Well, I'm burning daylight here in LAPUR and I've a long road ahead of me. 
Happy Trails.  Until you see my quill in LAPUR again, farewell-- Alarond the Scribe

All -- We just want you all to know that we have gone to and completed marriage
counselling and we love each other. -- Ora

Aye, I be lovin' the old bag again. -- Oremaster

Congrats and adios to Red Hot Chili Pepper of Bend Over Here It Comes Again. -- The
borgs of Metal Mincers

Way to go Necroma!  Who would have thought reverse-summoning of oneself would work?!
Kudos! -- Ora
P.S.  One can see Necroma perform in DM106 as Necromancer.

We did not understand that last Duelmaster Spot.  It seemed to be nothing. -- Ora and
Oremaster

Hey, Street Walkers, what is Bimbo Slice?  A female golfer?  What, then, would you
name a male golfer? -- Ora

"LUNA was dealt death by STONE GOLEM in a crowd pleasing 3 minute Dark Arena fight."
Humpfh!!!  We did NOT think it was crowd pleasing! -- Ora and Oremaster

     Crowds.  There's no understanding them.

Maybe ole Luna will do better inna last episode o' Harry?  Aye. -- Oremaster

Akumu -- I feel like I was blackened! -- Chrome Cutter

Horn Rock -- Perhaps you would do better with a string instrument and some mellow
classic? -- Copper Compacter

We love Brett Favre!  Go Vikings! -- Ora and Oremaster

Takachi -- You shouldn't have made fun of Riker's well groomed beard, he's a little
touchy about it. -- Deep Thought

Brown Beaver -- I bet you would taste good seared and smothered in Kplak sauce. --
Lieutenant Worf

Libra -- Your axe may have been bigger than mine, but logically, the last chop will
come from the winner. -- Mr. Spock

Lucky Eireann -- Thank you...for the skills.  I love getting...2 ratings in one turn.
Bring on the next Bloodfeuder...KKKKAAAAHHHHNNNN!!! -- Captain Kirk

Lapur -- No info on Liternius.  He was an experiment that basically did not work,
started with a 17 in will and a 15 in deftness.  You figure out where I put the 14
points.  Anyway he finished with a 19 will and 18 deftness, had a total of 10 stat
bumps.  Started out as a lunger, no idea what he finished as.  Doing this blew a lot
of learns.  Probably will not try something this extreme again.

Waterstone -- Why do you ask that? -- Encolpius

Mad Dog -- Do not know if Vindocomus is a Gaul or not but he appears as graffito on
the wasll of the Colosseum, he was a retiarius who died there. -- Spartacus

inablity to make contact with your weapon? -- Vindocomus

Cancer -- Nice up challenge, congrats on your win. -- Encolpius

Smack O'Malley -- I've never cared for crows. -- Cloudshadow

Copper Compacter -- Fine, go compact some copper.  See if I care. -- Horn Rock

Deathwind Forge -- Odd name.  What's the significance?  Do you come from a place
where death-winds are forged? -- Waterstone

The Blob -- You make it hard to fly. -- Butterfly

Illyria -- I thought that was, um, someplace over near Thrace? -- Mad Dog, not a
geographer

Our congratulations to Red Hot Chile, the finest kind. -- Jorja and the Cardow
