                                      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.  And let's see, DENMON fought GORAN KOBLINZ and 
gained 24 points and contributed to PHILANTHROPISTS 2's 1-0-0.  ORVAL PAYNE has lost 
to RIRORNI SPY, falling 9 points, while helping make MIDDLE WAY 17 a 1-4-0 turn.  And 
not without some honor, CHESTER GRELL now claims the title and throne of Duelmaster 
of JHANS.  Tell me, is nothing sacred?  I have heard from unimpeachable sources that 
Lucas Lounge uses trolls in their stew.  Talk about gristle!   
     I tell you, a green quarterstaff lasts longer than a seasoned sapling.  A basher 
friend of mine assures me this is true.   
     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

Hmm, three-two, with the three wins over standbys and the two losses to managed
warriors.  Why is this not a surprise?  Chester and Hildreth, both of whom lost,
decline to write personal personals out of embarrassment.  Even allowing for the
probability that their opponents have tourney fights, they are RIGHT to be
embarrassed.  Still, they did show up, that counts for something.  Not MUCH, but
something. -- Jorja
