                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, in IAYE 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 GAMEHENDGE is pushed out of top team by THE BRIGADE, who came from 5th 
with a 4-1-0 this turn.  Now keep the taverns open late tonight, for there are 
sorrows to drown for GAMEHENDGE, whose 0-3-0 this turn dropped them by 5 into 6th.  
LENPROS stable has parlayed this turn's 4-1-0 into a 5 space move up the rankings.  
This brings them up to 5th place.  Good work, guys!  The THE BRIGADE guild has had a 
4-1-0 turn and deserves to be watched in the future.  You never know where this kind 
of thing can lead.  And let's see, H. HATRACK fought VIRGINAL CONCUBINE and gained 23 
points and contributed to THE WARLOCKS' 3-0-0.  WROTE THE BOOK has lost to OLGA, 
falling 9 points, while helping make GAMEHENDGE a 0-3-0 turn.  This week's Duelmaster 
bout was between GISSANNIAH and our Duelmaster JET'E, making a challenge.  We should 
ask GISSANNIAH about the thrill of victory, and what being the new Duelmaster does 
for a warrior, she's now the one to ask.  By the way, was that our Duelmaster that I 
saw last night, cramped under the table at The Dragon's Blood Inn?   
     I tell you, a green quarterstaff lasts longer than a seasoned sapling.  A basher 
friend of mine assures me this is true.  RED DOG GANG has cause to stand tall, as 
they were IAYE's most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a team to beat.  
And guess who avoided RED DOG GANG stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was 
LENPROS.  Anyone surprised?  The most challenged warrior this turn was CRYSTAL 
PALACE's warrior ENCHANTED.  More fighters challenged it than challenged the 
Duelmaster!   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  A brave warrior does not carry a red shield, he has nothing to cover 
or hide when the fight is over.  Consider well.   
     Thought for the day, a new sword shines bright, but the notched sword sings the 
sweetest.  Well, I'm burning daylight here in IAYE and I've a long road ahead of me.  
Happy Trails.  Until you see my quill in IAYE again, farewell-- Alarond the Scribe

All -- O.K. the Lenpros are back again in full to make this all more interesting. --
Lenpro

Stinger -- Thanks for the challenge, Candy Striper.  I needed an easy win. -- Dr.
Rosenzweig

Dr. Rosenzweig -- The haughtiness and antagonism are not necessary.  Health!
Humility!  Honor! -- Lenpro

Sierra -- Well fought.  You certainly deserved the win.  Salute. -- Admiral Iso

Jet'e -- Oh, FOUR skills for me?  WELL done!  I thank you, sir. -- Freeda

Socko, er, I mean, Xoxoxo -- This is what happens when you go rushing in where even
the boldest cats hesitate. -- Perrojo

Double-D -- What's the deal with that?  It sounds like stuttering. -- Bigfoots

Crazy Fingers -- You need to wear iron gloves for a while to tame those wild and
woolly fingers.  They'll get you into trouble otherwise. -- Gissanniah

Bald Zebra -- If you hadn't had your stripes tattooed on, I would have taken you for
a suede horse. -- Rishteke
P.S.  YOU know, the kind of horses they grow down in Xochithlan.  Cream suede, so
that the horse-gear shows off well.

ATTENTION ALL YOU ALLIANCE-TYPE PEOPLE:
For the purposes of tourney newsletter alliance listings (when I am able to do them),
you may only be listed in ONE alliance.  In other words, you have to choose!  If you
are a part of Englebert's Alliance and Englebert's Alliance is "part" of Ruthrauf's
Alliance, I will list you EITHER as part of Englebert's Alliance OR as part of
Ruthrauf's Alliance, NOT both.  The default would be the top-level alliance,
Ruthrauf's, in this example.  If you'd rather be listed separately, let me know and I
will do so, but that will be the only listing you get. -- The Saint, keeper of ever-
more-complicated lists

The Company of Brothers (TCB) welcomes two new members to our alliance...Liam the
Goth and Buddy Lee.  We have no doubt that they will prove to be assets to our
