                                      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 BOHICA is pushed out of top team by CARDOW HUNTERS, who came from 4th 
with a 3-2-0 this turn.  Now keep the taverns open late tonight, for there are 
sorrows to drown for THE TAKEN, whose 0-0-0 this turn dropped them by 4 into 6th.  
CARDOW HUNTERS stable has parlayed this turn's 3-2-0 into a 3 space move up the 
rankings.  This brings them up to 1st place.  Good work, guys!  On their very first 
turn, SHADOWMIST had a 3-1-1, and with this kind of luck or skill, should do well.  
Welcome to LAPUR.  And let's see, SERENA fought STORMRUNNER and gained 16 points and 
contributed to SHADOWMIST's 3-1-1.  The attempts to dethrone the Duelmaster have 
failed, and THE CLEAR remains LAPUR's top warrior for another turn.  By the way, was 
that our Duelmaster that I saw last night, cramped under the table at The Warty Toad? 
     Oriental wise man once say, 'Hiding behind shields prevents proper sun tanning.' 
Inscrutable, but true.  THE TAKEN 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 
THE TAKEN stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was BLACK SAMURAI.  Anyone 
surprised?  The most challenged warrior this turn was ARCANE PHARMACY's warrior 
HEAVENLY BLUE.  More fighters challenged her than challenged the Duelmaster!  In a 
brave attempt, AVOX from BOHICA challenged up 19 points to fight HEAVENLY BLUE from 
the ARCANE PHARMACY stable.  AVOX perhaps got hers just desserts, seeing as she won 
victory over HEAVENLY BLUE and ended up with 48 recognition points.   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  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.  It's been nice chatting with you, until we meet again, keep your swords 
sharp and your hammers heavy.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets to paper-- 
Alarond the Scribe

Snowflake -- Looks like I'm too slippery for you! -- Butterface

Windflower --  I'm so sorry.  As you can see by my team's low kill ratio (3 kills in
250 fights, and 1 of those was in the Dark Arena), we do not actively seek the death
of our opponents.  Although it came on my challenge, your death was purely
accidental, I was skill hunting, and apparently I need them badly as I didn't hit you
once in the area in which I aimed.  Please accept my sincerest apology. -- Deadman 5

Deadmaus -- This is the whole "live by the sword, die by the sword" thing, isn't it?
Oh, well. -- Ghost of Windflower, blown away
P.S.  Congratulations on having the TV to use, and using it.
P.P.S.  And know for truth, I will NEVER AGAIN teach you four skills in one fight.

Divergent -- Obviously, this is going to be one of THOSE days.  I should have guessed
when Monday morning's snow didn't even last an hour. -- Snowflake

Buzzard -- Ah, where were you taken?  Where do you take?  So many questions! --
Wintersong

I don't much like Beggars, but at least they lose to me. -- Stormrunner

Shamrock Shamus -- Here, now!  Vicious?  Brutal?  For why? -- Dancing Cat
