                                      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.  It seems the training can make the 
difference, as SOUL WARRIORS is pushed out of top team by TMM KNOCKOFFS, who came 
from 2nd with a 3-2-0 this turn.  And let's see, FOREVER PORCH fought BAD IDEAS and 
gained 24 points and contributed to TMM KNOCKOFFS' 3-2-0.  BAD IDEAS has lost to 
FOREVER PORCH, falling 20 points, while helping make ONE TOO MANY a 2-3-0 turn.  We 
should ask TACOS about the thrill of victory, and what being the new Duelmaster does 
for a warrior, he's now the one to ask.  Tell me, is nothing sacred?  I have heard 
from unimpeachable sources that The Choking Ogre uses trolls in their stew.  Talk 
about gristle!   
     He who challenges well, fights well.  He who avoids without cause, shall lose 
for good reasons.  My mama told me that one.  SOUL WARRIORS 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 SOUL WARRIORS more than any other team we find BOOK OF THE 
FALLEN.  CLIFFHOME, are we going to accept, or respect this sort of thing?  Well, 
sports fans, take notice that FLUKY FRINDING from TMM KNOCKOFFS was CLIFFHOME's most 
challenged warrior this turn.   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  SOUL WARRIORS has some questions to answer.  Like 'why did you kill your 
fighter, TOBLERONE, who had a record of 3-0-0?' We'd like to remind certain teams not 
to rob the graves of their enemies.  You know who you are; and it's considered rude.  
     I like this place, CLIFFHOME, the taverns have old wine, and young serving 
girls.  Who could ask for more?  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
