                                      SPY REPORT

     Busy, busy, busy, lots of things happening in XOCHITHLAN this turn, and let's 
start with a look at some of the teams.  And let's see, IPSWICH fought XYOKOR YAHL 
and gained 17 points and contributed to KIWI CONNECTION's 5-0-0.  TIMOR UNRED has 
lost to HIDDEN ARCHER, falling 7 points, while helping make THE MIDDLE WAY a 1-4-0 
turn.  The attempts to dethrone the Duelmaster have failed, and COLLINGWOOD remains 
XOCHITHLAN's top warrior for another turn.  Tell me, is nothing sacred?  I have heard 
from unimpeachable sources that The Dripping Blade 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.   
     The Dark Arena is for those who cannot win, not who cannot lose with grace.  
Dignity in life or death is the warrior's creed.  Is it really true that XOCHITHLAN 
has more dishwashers per capita that fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...   
     I like this place, XOCHITHLAN, the taverns have old wine, and young serving 
girls.  Who could ask for more?  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
