                                      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, VENOM fought VALAKOTH and gained 
22 points and contributed to SERPENTS HOLD's 4-0-1.  VALAKOTH has lost to VENOM, 
falling 15 points, while helping make TEMPLE OF STEEL a 2-3-0 turn.  Defending his 
title for another turn, RHAKARAS kept MIDDLE WAY 17's warrior, CHESTER GRELL, from 
claiming the throne.  Can someone confirm a rumor for me?  I hear the top team makes 
their losing fighters do dishes at Lucas Lounge until they win.  Maybe?   
     I tell you, a green quarterstaff lasts longer than a seasoned sapling.  A basher 
friend of mine assures me this is true.  TEMPLE OF STEEL has cause to stand tall, as 
they were JHANS' most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a team to beat.  
And guess who avoided TEMPLE OF STEEL stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was 
DEVIATION.  Anyone surprised?  Well, sports fans, take notice that HILDRETH LAMONT 
from MIDDLE WAY 17 was JHANS' most challenged warrior this turn.   
     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?  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

Rhakaras -- Serpents Hold is run by Khisanth. -- Jorja

We salute the tourney participants, with a special cheer for Sidewinder, tourney
victor in the Apprentices. -- Jorja and the Middle Way

Valkhan -- That was devastatingly unpleasant.  Good work on your part. -- Jonz Klee

Megatron -- The humiliation was worse than the broken ribs.  I hope that never
happens again. -- Hildreth LamontP.S.  But it probably will.

Feeling Minnesota -- Oh, yeah, I see the writing on the wall for THIS turn.  Oh-fer,
betcha.  Good thing Jorja doesn't do the Dark Arena bit, or we might all be gone. --
Goran Koblinz, Feeling New Madrid Earthquake, and if that isn't "disoriented," you
can fry me like a potato

Valcanis -- I'd call that performance "volcanic."  Is that your theme song, perhaps?
-- Mandarno Ness

Rhakaras -- And so your desire come to pass.  Ouch.  Actually, it was interesting.  I
wish I could've learned more from it, though. -- Chester Grell
