                                      SPY REPORT

     Busy, busy, busy, lots of things happening in CLIFFHOME this turn, and let's 
start with a look at some of the teams.  And let's see, LUM BUSBY fought AMBITIOUS 
GUARD and gained 13 points and contributed to JINDA-BAN's 1-4-0.  WHEELIE JUNE has 
lost to AMBITIOUS GUARD, falling 3 points, while helping make JINDA-BAN a 1-4-0 turn. 
The attempts to dethrone the Duelmaster have failed, and AVERAGE JOE remains 
CLIFFHOME's top warrior for another turn.  By the way, was that our Duelmaster that I 
saw last night, cramped under the table at The Choking Ogre?   
     The crowd's roar, the smell of iron and leather, mixed with sweat, what more 
could a warrior ask of life?  Well, besides that.   
     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.   
     Thought for the day, a new sword shines bright, but the notched sword sings the 
sweetest.  Always good to rest in CLIFFHOME, but never good to wear out my welcome.  
Look for me in future turns.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets to paper-- 
Alarond the Scribe

Torchlight Kid -- Damn, that fender will never be the same. -- Bent Fender

Average Joe -- Do NOT tell me you were "just doing your job."  I hate it when a date
says that. -- Redd Corvait

Runna Damill -- Talk about misnomers! -- Kartikaya

The Dangerous Criminal stole my bike! -- Wheelie June
P.S.  But he'd better watch out, because the minute he turns his back on it, that
bike will kick him into next week.
P.P.S.  You didn't think I'd ride and ORDINARY bike, did you?

Somehow, running down a Captured Orc wasn't much of a thrill. -- Lum Busby

Average Joe -- But THIS time, you probably WILL get a standby. -- Redd

     If there were supposed to be more personals here, our apologies.  Hal spent a
     night on the tiles, and we're still trying to catch up with the mail.  They
     should, well, they might appear next time.
