                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, friends and fiends, welcome to your friendly neighborhood spyreport.  
I doubt JHANS will ever be the same.  And let's see, FRONTLINE fought HOLLY and 
gained 20 points and contributed to ENGINES 'O' DEATH's 2-2-0.  HOLLY has lost to 
FRONTLINE, falling 17 points, while helping make BABES a 2-2-0 turn.  The attempts to 
dethrone the Duelmaster have failed, and PUSS N BOOTS remains JHANS' top warrior for 
another turn.  Tell me, is nothing sacred?  I have heard from unimpeachable sources 
that Lucas Lounge uses trolls in their stew.  Talk about gristle!   
     Oriental wise man once say, 'Hiding behind shields prevents proper sun tanning.' 
Inscrutable, but true.  I also notice that the ENGINES 'O' DEATH stable was the most 
avoided team this turn.  Come on JHANS, what are you afraid of?  And guess who 
avoided ENGINES 'O' DEATH stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was HELL'S KITCHEN. 
Anyone surprised?  The most challenged warrior this turn was ENGINES 'O' DEATH's 
warrior IRON MAN.  More fighters challenged him than challenged the Duelmaster!   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  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, JHANS, the taverns have old wine, and young serving girls.  
Who could ask for more?  It's been nice chatting with you, until we meet again, keep 
your swords sharp and your hammers heavy.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets 
to paper-- Alarond the Scribe
