                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail NIATOLI ISLAND!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed 
for your deeds.  The STEEL PATH 2 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.  This 
week's Duelmaster bout was between SUCCOTASH and our Duelmaster DEMONICHELLION, 
making a challenge.  Defending his title for another turn, DEMONICHELLION kept 
VEGGIES' warrior, SUCCOTASH, from claiming the throne.  By the way, was that our 
Duelmaster that I saw last night, cramped under the table at The Don't Drop Inn?   
     I tell you, a green quarterstaff lasts longer than a seasoned sapling.  A basher 
friend of mine assures me this is true.  VEGGIES has cause to stand tall, as they 
were NIATOLI ISLAND's most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a team to 
beat.  And avoiding VEGGIES more than any other team we find ELITE SOLDIERS.  NIATOLI 
ISLAND, are we going to accept, or respect this sort of thing?  Well, sports fans, 
take notice that IRINKESTA from THE SEWING CIRCLE was NIATOLI ISLAND's most 
challenged warrior this turn.  In a fit of brilliance or of stupidity (hard to say 
sometimes), DEUS challenged IRINKESTA today, facing a 30 difference in recognition.  
And now nobody knows where IRINKESTA is right now, after giving DEUS 26 points worth 
of recognition.  As quiet chuckles rise behind me.  In a brave attempt, SQUASH from 
VEGGIES challenged up 20 points to fight TYLER from the THE SEWING CIRCLE stable.  
SQUASH perhaps got his just desserts, seeing as he dispatched TYLER and ended up with 
25 recognition points.  DIABOLICFIEND of CHAOTICDISORDER had better have a good 
reason for challenging down 8 points in a challenge which he won.  I thought 
DIABOLICFIEND showed great skill and promise when he overcame TATHARLI.  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?  TYLER has departed NIATOLI ISLAND, leaving THE SEWING CIRCLE without 
their 5-7-0 warrior.  Question, just what was hers team doing at the taverns last 
night?  Is it really true that NIATOLI ISLAND 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 NIATOLI ISLAND and I've a long 
road ahead of me.  Happy Trails.  Until you see my quill in NIATOLI ISLAND again, 
farewell-- Alarond the Scribe

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

alliance and the general dueling community. -- Baphomet, co-founder, T.C.B.
