                                      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, LADY LOVE fought BLEAK 
and gained 15 points and contributed to CLASSIC CHARACTERS' 4-0-1.  BENJYN BLAYDE has 
lost to PIEHOLDEN SWEET, falling 7 points, while helping make OBSIDIAN HALL a 1-2-0 
turn.  The attempts to dethrone the Duelmaster have failed, and LADY KALDRA remains 
NIATOLI ISLAND's top warrior for another turn.  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.  BIG LAKE BANDITS 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 guess who avoided BIG LAKE BANDITS stable the most?  Believe it 
or not, it was DEMONSPAWN.  Anyone surprised?  The most challenged warrior this turn 
was SUMMERTEETH's warrior PIEHOLDEN SWEET.  More fighters challenged him than 
challenged the Duelmaster!  I don't know about you, but WEIRDO challenging down 18 
points to BIG LAKE BANDITS' HUGE SHAWN, is not really worthy of CLASSIC CHARACTERS.  
It pains me to see warriors take advantage of the system like this.  WEIRDO beat HUGE 
SHAWN, as if it surprises anyone.  BYL BONESNAPPER of BIG LAKE BANDITS had better 
have a good reason for challenging down 13 points in a challenge which he won.  I 
thought BYL BONESNAPPER showed great skill and promise when he bested VIXEN.  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?  The grave that CLASSIC CHARACTERS had dug for PIMP POLITICIAN may 
yet be filled with the body of BLACK ORC.  Seldom are the likes of this to be seen.  
PIMP POLITICIAN lives still!  A brave warrior does not carry a red shield, he has 
nothing to cover or hide when the fight is over.  Consider well.   
     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 the sun next rises 
and my pen sets to paper-- Alarond the Scribe
