                                      SPY REPORT

     Busy, busy, busy, lots of things happening in IAYE this turn, and let's start 
with a look at some of the teams.  It seems the training can make the difference, as 
ALL JACKED UP is pushed out of top team by WRATHMEN, who came from 2nd with a 3-1-0 
this turn.  Now keep the taverns open late tonight, for there are sorrows to drown 
for HER BEST ASSETS, whose 1-2-1 this turn dropped them by 4 into 13th.  WEIRD 
STUDENTS stable has parlayed this turn's 1-3-0 into a 6 space move up the rankings.  
This brings them up to 8th place.  Good work, guys!  The DELTA BLUES guild has had a 
3-1-0 turn and deserves to be watched in the future.  You never know where this kind 
of thing can lead.  BOUNCY BOTTOM has lost to LENNOX, falling 10 points, while 
helping make HER BEST ASSETS a 1-2-1 turn.  BABA O'RILEY challenged for the 
Duelmastership this turn, attempting to dethrone ALL JACKED UP's warrior.  We should 
ask BABA O'RILEY about the thrill of victory, and what being the new Duelmaster does 
for a warrior, he's now the one to ask.  By the way, was that our Duelmaster that I 
saw last night, cramped under the table at The Rat Nest?   
     Oriental wise man once say, 'Hiding behind shields prevents proper sun tanning.' 
Inscrutable, but true.  I also notice that the LENPROS stable was the most avoided 
team this turn.  Come on IAYE, what are you afraid of?  And guess who avoided LENPROS 
stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was WRATHMEN.  Anyone surprised?  Well, 
sports fans, take notice that RED ROVER from RED DOG GANG was IAYE's most challenged 
warrior this turn.  Building dreams on hope, THE THINKING MIND challenged up 29 
points this turn to take on ELMYDR from WRATHMEN stable.  And whaddya know, THE 
THINKING MIND beat ELMYDR, and the fighters of NATURE MADE were last seen lifting 
frothy pints of ale in honor of THE THINKING MIND's 27 point gain.  In a brave 
attempt, THE GOBI from NATURE MADE challenged up 19 points to fight DEMENTED DAN from 
the WEIRD STUDENTS stable.  THE GOBI perhaps got his just desserts, seeing as he 
defeated DEMENTED DAN and ended up with 55 recognition points.   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  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.   
     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 the sun next rises and my pen sets to paper-- Alarond the Scribe
