                                      SPY REPORT

     Busy, busy, busy, lots of things happening in ARVAT this turn, and let's start 
with a look at some of the teams.  It seems the training can make the difference, as 
LUROCIAN GUARD is pushed out of top team by DEVIL ADVOCATES, 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 LUROCIAN GUARD, whose 1-3-0 this turn dropped them by 4 into 5th.  BIG LAKE 
NOMADS stable has parlayed this turn's 3-2-1 into a 8 space move up the rankings.  
This brings them up to 3rd place.  Good work, guys!  And let's see, KARLRAK fought 
KHALHUMS DWARF and gained 22 points and contributed to RILL'S GCSC2's 2-2-1.  RONALTO 
VON RON has lost to GREATER VRULL, falling 18 points, while helping make LUROCIAN 
GUARD a 1-3-0 turn.  TED ICKENS challenged for the Duelmastership this turn, 
attempting to dethrone RILL'S GCSC2's warrior.  And not without some honor, TED 
ICKENS now claims the title and throne of Duelmaster of ARVAT.  Tell me, is nothing 
sacred?  I have heard from unimpeachable sources that The Welcome Wench uses trolls 
in their stew.  Talk about gristle!   
     I tell you, a green quarterstaff lasts longer than a seasoned sapling.  A basher 
friend of mine assures me this is true.  I also notice that the BIG LAKE NOMADS 
stable was the most avoided team this turn.  Come on ARVAT, what are you afraid of?  
And guess who avoided BIG LAKE NOMADS stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was 
DEVIL ADVOCATES.  Anyone surprised?  Well, sports fans, take notice that HERON from 
FISHERMAN'S WHARF was ARVAT's most challenged warrior this turn.  BELLE ZEYBUL of 
DEVIL ADVOCATES had better have a good reason for challenging down 15 points in a 
challenge which she won.  I thought BELLE ZEYBUL showed great skill and promise when 
she defeated HERON.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  The grave that RILL'S GCSC2 had dug for GELEN may yet be filled with the 
body of HIGH ELF.  Seldom are the likes of this to be seen.  GELEN lives still!  Is 
it really true that ARVAT has more dishwashers per capita that fighters?  Just 
thought I'd ask...   
     Remember, blood on the purple robe does not change it from a purple robe.  Dare 
to fight bravely.  Well, I'm burning daylight here in ARVAT 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

Heron -- Interesting.  Apparently our manager is attempting to determine some details
about the nature of decisiveness skills and tactics from our fights.  Which makes us
his guinea pigs....  Not sure I like that, but he's the boss, I guess. -- Belle Z

ROLAND!!!  ROLAND!!!  ROLAND!!!

Rumor of the Week -- Word has it that miners south of town uncovered an artifact from
the Chaos Wars.  Apparently representatives from the Grey Tower have been dispatched
to inspect it.

Belle Zeybul -- (scandalized recoil)  You can't fish my way, you're too short!  And
besides, your perfume is too strong.  (sneezes)  Very few fish are attracted to the
scent of sulfur, you know. -- Heron

Ted Ickens -- You're an icky one, but you learn well.  I like that in an opponent.
It makes them want repeat matches, which makes them less likely to kill me out of
hand.  I'd hate to be killed out of hand. -- Peter Piquin

Karlrak -- Seriously, why should I laugh?  You're skilled and bold.  This can be
good, so long as you also have judgment. -- Sarlow

Lara -- That was wonderfully restful.  I bet if we tried, we could drag it out even
longer! -- Fillis Bouy

Ezk Eyejabber -- Yep, I knew it!  Someone is afraid of me and is out to get me!  But
I'll find out who.  Not you, mind, you're just a catspaw.  But I'll find out, and
then somebody will be feeding the fishes. -- Killer Minnow
P.S.  How can you be a nomad on a lake?  Canoes?
