                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, in MURSKA a quiet thief gets rich, but a quiet spymaster gets poor.  
So bring me ale and harken to my tidbits of news.  It seems the training can make the 
difference, as CHILDREN OF LLYR is pushed out of top team by FLIPPERS ARCADE, who 
came from 2nd with a 3-0-0 this turn.  And let's see, COMMODUS fought FLASH and 
gained 18 points and contributed to THE GODS ARE ANGRY's 1-4-0.  FLASH has lost to 
COMMODUS, falling 9 points, while helping make THE BEARS a 0-4-0 turn.  The attempts 
to dethrone the Duelmaster have failed, and Q*BERT remains MURSKA'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 Howling Wolf until they win.  Maybe?   
     The crowd's roar, the smell of iron and leather, mixed with sweat, what more 
could a warrior ask of life?  Well, besides that.  I also notice that the CHILDREN OF 
LLYR stable was the most avoided team this turn.  Come on MURSKA, what are you afraid 
of?  And guess who avoided CHILDREN OF LLYR stable the most?  Believe it or not, it 
was THE GODS ARE ANGRY.  Anyone surprised?   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  A brave warrior does not carry a red shield, he has nothing to cover 
or hide when the fight is over.  Consider well.   
     Thought for the day, a new sword shines bright, but the notched sword sings the 
sweetest.  It's been nice chatting with you, until we meet again, keep your swords 
sharp and your hammers heavy.  Until you see my quill in MURSKA again, farewell-- 
Alarond the Scribe

Q*bert -- You go, man.  Hang onto that title!  I don't want it.  I've got, ah, other
rabbits to catch. -- Balin
P.S.  I've got a date to walk in the graveyard tonight.  Very romantical places,
graveyards.

Pitfall Harry -- Way to go!  You may get a winning record yet. -- Culann Coontz

Tourney Scum -- Who's got the energy for that stuff? -- Bildis
P.S.  Yeah, yeah, I know, Jorja says more B vitamins.  Sounds second-class to me.
What about A?

Kabob -- Given our respective records, maybe we should switch teams. -- Aidan O'Kai

The Russian -- I never thought of you as being a WHITE bear.  How odd. -- Brenna
