                                      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.  It seems the training can make the difference, as 
SERPENTS HOLD is pushed out of top team by MIDDLE WAY 17, who came from 2nd with a 
4-1-0 this turn.  The MIDDLE WAY 17 guild has had a 4-1-0 turn and deserves to be 
watched in the future.  You never know where this kind of thing can lead.  And let's 
see, ORVAL PAYNE fought AMBITIOUS GUARD and gained 18 points and contributed to 
MIDDLE WAY 17's 4-1-0.  ETHER has lost to HILDRETH LAMONT, falling 13 points, while 
helping make STILLMATIC a 0-2-0 turn.  Due to his absence and inability to defend the 
throne, VIPER has lost the title of Duelmaster.  And all eyes were on SIDEWINDER this 
turn as he ascended to the throne of Duelmaster.  JHANS has a new victor!  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?   
     Oriental wise man once say, 'Hiding behind shields prevents proper sun tanning.' 
Inscrutable, but true.   
     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.   
     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

Not a good turn for us, but Jorja insists on personals, so...

Sidewinder -- Cheese louise!  Maybe I should change over from being a stem-winder
myself.  Side-winding sure works for you. -- Chester Grell
P.S.  Nothing personally personal, but the idea of "grappling" with a golem gives me
a grue.

Venom -- Drat. -- Orval Payne

Ether -- Of course you subdued me.  That's what ether does, is it not? -- Hildreth
Lamont

Why are the Rirorni spying on us? -- Goran Koblinz

Should I be glad to have gotten a win, or embarrassed that it took eight minutes? --
Jonz Klee
