                                      SPY REPORT

     Busy, busy, busy, lots of things happening in JHANS this turn, and let's start 
with a look at some of the teams.  FRIENDLY FIRE stable has parlayed this turn's 
3-2-0 into a 5 space move up the rankings.  This brings them up to 2nd place.  Good 
work, guys!  And let's see, NURSE JHAN HAMMER fought THE MISSION and gained 19 points 
and contributed to AARDVARK HAMMERZ's 1-0-0.  SOLOMON GRUNDY has lost to HELL'S EDGE, 
falling 13 points, while helping make ENGINES 'O' DEATH a 3-2-0 turn.  Due to hers 
absence and inability to defend the throne, ROSIE has lost the title of Duelmaster.  
And all eyes were on KILLER INSTINCT this turn as he ascended to the throne of 
Duelmaster.  JHANS has a new victor!  By the way, was that our Duelmaster that I saw 
last night, cramped under the table at Lucas Lounge?   
     I tell you, a green quarterstaff lasts longer than a seasoned sapling.  A basher 
friend of mine assures me this is true.  ENGINES 'O' DEATH has cause to stand tall, 
as they were JHANS' most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a team to beat. 
And avoiding ENGINES 'O' DEATH more than any other team we find FRIENDLY FIRE.  
JHANS, are we going to accept, or respect this sort of thing?  The most challenged 
warrior this turn was ERRATA's warrior AFTER.  More fighters challenged him than 
challenged the Duelmaster!  CAO CAO of DYNASTY WARRIORS had better have a good reason 
for challenging down 8 points in a challenge which he won.  I thought CAO CAO showed 
great skill and promise when he won victory over THE PACIFIST.  All right, so I slept 
through it!  Big deal!   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  Is it really true that JHANS has more dishwashers per capita that fighters? 
Just thought I'd ask...   
     Remember, blood on the purple robe does not change it from a purple robe.  Dare 
to fight bravely.  Always good to rest in JHANS, but never good to wear out my 
welcome.  Look for me in future turns.  Until you see my quill in JHANS again, 
farewell-- Alarond the Scribe
