                                      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 HAPPY FUN TIME is pushed out of top team by CHILDREN OF LLYR, who came 
from 3rd with a 5-0-1 this turn.  And let's see, URCHIN fought TIMBRE and gained 20 
points and contributed to SEA DOGS' 2-3-0.  PRIVATEER has lost to JOCK MACBEAGH, 
falling 13 points, while helping make SEA DOGS a 2-3-0 turn.  Due to its absence and 
inability to defend the throne, FREE CHEESE!! has lost the title of Duelmaster.  We 
should ask SAVAGE BEATING about the thrill of victory, and what being the new 
Duelmaster does for a warrior, it's now the one to ask.  By the way, was that our 
Duelmaster that I saw last night, cramped under the table at The Victory Tavern?   
     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 CHILDREN OF LLYR 
stable was the most avoided team this turn.  Come on MURSKA, what are you afraid of?  
And avoiding CHILDREN OF LLYR more than any other team we find SOUND.  MURSKA, are we 
going to accept, or respect this sort of thing?  The most challenged warrior this 
turn was CHILDREN OF LLYR's warrior DEIRDRIE.  More fighters challenged her than 
challenged the Duelmaster!   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  We'd like to remind certain teams not to rob the graves of their 
enemies.  You know who you are; and it's considered rude.   
     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 MURSKA and I've a long road 
ahead of me.  Happy Trails.  Until you see my quill in MURSKA again, farewell-- 
Alarond the Scribe

Deirdrie -- Sorry about Hum being a little rough, but you shouldn't make those
inflamatory comments. -- Trim

Sean Ap Kormak -- You're a good teacher.  Best lesson was to hold onto my weapon.  It
really wasn't my fault you dropped yours after my first hit.  Maybe you were thinking
of the Dentist ... hummm.  You really had no reason to fight dirty afterwards though.
You almost hit me with the three "round houses" you threw!  My advice is that you
pull a backup weapon in the future. -- Timbre

Danny Boy -- I do NOT apologize for all the dents I put in your armor.  Yes, you won,
but you didn't even swing once!  Grrrr! -- Tap

Red -- You good fighter!  We almost same height ... me like that.  We should fight
again. -- Dorsum

One-four?  It's a good thing Madon left, he'd be annoyed with us.  Seriously annoyed.
Isn't it amazing how simply graduating can turn an ordinary, tolerant loser into such
a pig of a prigg?  He did plenty of "dumb losing" in his day! -- Finn mac Karmek
