                                      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.  The THE MIDDLE WAY guild has had a 4-1-0 
turn and deserves to be watched in the future.  You never know where this kind of 
thing can lead.  And let's see, SAML TYNE fought ASQUITH and gained 26 points and 
contributed to THE MIDDLE WAY's 4-1-0.  ASQUITH has lost to SAML TYNE, falling 23 
points, while helping make KIWI CONNECTION a 3-2-0 turn.  We should ask XYOKOR YAHL 
about the thrill of victory, and what being the new Duelmaster does for a warrior, 
he's now the one to ask.  Can someone confirm a rumor for me?  I hear the top team 
makes their losing fighters do dishes at The Swinging Aardvark until they win.  
Maybe?   
     I tell you, a green quarterstaff lasts longer than a seasoned sapling.  A basher 
friend of mine assures me this is true.   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  Is it really true that XOCHITHLAN has more dishwashers per capita 
that fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...   
     Thought for the day, a new sword shines bright, but the notched sword sings the 
sweetest.  Well, I'm burning daylight here in XOCHITHLAN and I've a long road ahead 
of me.  Happy Trails.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets to paper-- Alarond 
the Scribe

Some days, I wonder why we bother to show up.  Variety is not exactly the middle name
of Xochithlan's arena.  Oh, well....

Asquith -- Well, you know how it goes.  You needed a loss, I had one I could spare,
it was a no-brainer. -- Xyokor Yahl

Rata -- You aren't laughing?  Why not?  Is it some kind of elvish thing, instead of
laughing, you just snicker behind my back or something?  I'd rather you laughed right
out. -- Timor Unred

If the Rirorni hadn't tried to match us at OUR game, which is gladiating, they might
have done a lot better in the war.  It's a sure thing we couldn't have matched THEIR
game any better. -- Saml Tyne

The Rirorni Looter is awfully eager to make excuses for his behavior.  Says it
doesn't count as looting if you're the enemy looking for booty.  I figure looting is
looting. -- Fallon Grimm

Rirorni Deserter.  Okay.  I suppose he wanted a chance to take hot baths and all. --
Quita Rosala

Our congratulations to Collingwood. -- Jorja and the Middle Way
