                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, in CLIFFHOME a quiet thief gets rich, but a quiet spymaster gets poor. 
So bring me ale and harken to my tidbits of news.  The BASH BROS CHILDREN guild has 
had a 4-1-1 turn and deserves to be watched in the future.  You never know where this 
kind of thing can lead.  And let's see, TALKS NONSTOP fought ASH and gained 23 points 
and contributed to BASH BROS CHILDREN's 4-1-1.  ASH has lost to TALKS NONSTOP, 
falling 22 points, while helping make SOUL WARRIORS a 2-3-1 turn.  Defending hers 
title for another turn, KALI kept JINDA-BAN's warrior, KOVORLIN SIRRO, from claiming 
the throne.  Can someone confirm a rumor for me?  I hear the top team makes their 
losing fighters do dishes at The Choking Ogre until they win.  Maybe?   
     He who challenges well, fights well.  He who avoids without cause, shall lose 
for good reasons.  My mama told me that one.   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  I guess it was coming sooner or later, JINDA-BAN has lost KOVORLIN SIRRO, 
and CLIFFHOME is bound to miss him.  For a little while, at least.  SOUL WARRIORS, 
with any luck JINDA-BAN will successfully bloodfeud KALI for killing such a warrior 
as KOVORLIN SIRRO.  Have a little decency, will ya?  Is it really true that CLIFFHOME 
has more dishwashers per capita that fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...   
     Remember, blood on the purple robe does not change it from a purple robe.  Dare 
to fight bravely.  It's been nice chatting with you, until we meet again, keep your 
swords sharp and your hammers heavy.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets to 
paper-- Alarond the Scribe
