                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, in NIATOLI ISLAND a quiet thief gets rich, but a quiet spymaster gets 
poor.  So bring me ale and harken to my tidbits of news.  HALLOWIENERS stable has 
parlayed this turn's 1-0-0 into a 3 space move up the rankings.  This brings them up 
to 8th place.  Good work, guys!  The OBSIDIAN HALL 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, DIGITALIS fought PIEHOLDEN SWEET and gained 23 points and 
contributed to OBSIDIAN HALL's 4-1-0.  PIEHOLDEN SWEET has lost to DIGITALIS, falling 
16 points, while helping make SUMMERTEETH a 1-2-0 turn.  Due to hers absence and 
inability to defend the throne, FLOUR CHILD has lost the title of Duelmaster.  We 
should ask DIGITALIS about the thrill of victory, and what being the new Duelmaster 
does for a warrior, she's now the one to ask.  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?   
     He who challenges well, fights well.  He who avoids without cause, shall lose 
for good reasons.  My mama told me that one.  I also notice that the OBSIDIAN HALL 
stable was the most avoided team this turn.  Come on NIATOLI ISLAND, what are you 
afraid of?  And guess who avoided OBSIDIAN HALL stable the most?  Believe it or not, 
it was BIG LAKE BANDITS.  Anyone surprised?  Well, sports fans, take notice that 
DIGITALIS from OBSIDIAN HALL was NIATOLI ISLAND's most challenged warrior this turn.  
     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.  SUMMERTEETH has lost DA2 to the 
arena in the sky, but they don't seem to be worried.  What do you expect from 
19-14-1?  The bigger they are, as they say.  And what I say is that TORG THUNDERCLAP 
had better watch out for SUMMERTEETH, seeing as DA2 felled he this turn.  
Congratulations go out to OBSIDIAN HALL, with PANDORA revenging a bloodfeud against 
INIGO MONTOYA of BIG LAKE BANDITS.  Is it really true that NIATOLI ISLAND has more 
dishwashers per capita that fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...   
     Thought for the day, a new sword shines bright, but the notched sword sings the 
sweetest.  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

going to do now that you are out of the revenge business?  Run and hide? -- Ghost of

DD

Congratulations Knights of Legend!  Current Top Team and Team on the Move!  Nice
return for you, Zorsea! -- DD

     Can I take "Zorsea" as a manager name there?  There isn't one in my database.

All -- Pandora leaves the island and is headed for the retirement home, hopefully
with a 19-19-3 record after a successful bloodfeud.  Her vitals, for any interested,
12(1)-10-6-15-17-10-15 with MOD/LOW rhythm, SS, and favors the Dodge tactic. -- DD
