                                      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.  It seems the training can make the 
difference, as JINDA-BAN is pushed out of top team by ZOMBIE SQUAD, who came from 3rd 
with a 3-1-0 this turn.  And let's see, WALKER fought TROKRESSA SALM and gained 19 
points and contributed to ZOMBIE SQUAD's 3-1-0.  TROKRESSA SALM has lost to WALKER, 
falling 17 points, while helping make JINDA-BAN a 2-3-0 turn.  And all eyes were on 
THE COWS AFOOT this turn as he ascended to the throne of Duelmaster.  CLIFFHOME has a 
new victor!  Tell me, is nothing sacred?  I have heard from unimpeachable sources 
that The Choking Ogre uses trolls in their stew.  Talk about gristle!   
     The crowd's roar, the smell of iron and leather, mixed with sweat, what more 
could a warrior ask of life?  Well, besides that.  JINDA-BAN has cause to stand tall, 
as they were CLIFFHOME's most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a team to 
beat.  And avoiding JINDA-BAN more than any other team we find BASH BROS PARK.  
CLIFFHOME, are we going to accept, or respect this sort of thing?   
     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.   
     Remember, blood on the purple robe does not change it from a purple robe.  Dare 
to fight bravely.  Always good to rest in CLIFFHOME, but never good to wear out my 
welcome.  Look for me in future turns.  Until you see my quill in CLIFFHOME again, 
farewell-- Alarond the Scribe
