     I wonder how we did in the tourney.

Hull Scrubber

                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, friends and fiends, welcome to your friendly neighborhood spyreport.  
I doubt NIATOLI ISLAND will ever be the same.  And let's see, BULLRUSH fought 
BEDAZZLER and gained 17 points and contributed to UGA COLLEGE RADIO's 1-4-0.  
HASSIMOR SHOMUR has lost to CONVICTED ASSASSIN, falling 10 points, while helping make 
THE SEWING CIRCLE a 1-4-0 turn.  Defending his title for another turn, HULL SCRUBBER 
kept THE SEWING CIRCLE's warrior, KARINIRINA, from claiming the throne.  Can someone 
confirm a rumor for me?  I hear the top team makes their losing fighters do dishes at 
The Don't Drop Inn until they win.  Maybe?   
     I tell you, a green quarterstaff lasts longer than a seasoned sapling.  A basher 
friend of mine assures me this is true.   
     The Dark Arena is for those who cannot win, not who cannot lose with grace.  
Dignity in life or death is the warrior's creed.  Is it really true that NIATOLI 
ISLAND has more dishwashers per capita that fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...   
     I like this place, NIATOLI ISLAND, the taverns have old wine, and young serving 
girls.  Who could ask for more?  Always good to rest in NIATOLI ISLAND, but never 
good to wear out my welcome.  Look for me in future turns.  Until you see my quill in 
NIATOLI ISLAND again, farewell-- Alarond the Scribe
