                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, friends and fiends, welcome to your friendly neighborhood spyreport.  
I doubt XOCHITHLAN will ever be the same.  And let's see, RATA fought SAML TYNE and 
gained 16 points and contributed to KIWI CONNECTION's 3-2-0.  SAML TYNE has lost to 
RATA, falling 14 points, while helping make THE MIDDLE WAY a 2-3-0 turn.  Defending 
his title for another turn, WHAKAPAPA kept THE MIDDLE WAY's warrior, XYOKOR YAHL, 
from claiming the throne.  Can someone confirm a rumor for me?  I hear the top team 
makes their losing fighters do dishes at The Welcome Wench until they win.  Maybe?   
     Oriental wise man once say, 'Hiding behind shields prevents proper sun tanning.' 
Inscrutable, but true.   
     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.   
     Thought for the day, a new sword shines bright, but the notched sword sings the 
sweetest.  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

Whakapapap -- There are too many "a"s in your name.  I'm glad you're graduating. --
Xyokor Yahl

Asquith -- Unlucky for you, and darned lucky for me that I survived to win.
Actually, I like 'em like that--short and victorious. -- Saml Tyne

Rata -- Drat.  You went rata-tata-tat on my bones, bruising my flesh on the way to
said bones.  Or something like that. -- Quita Rosala
P.S.  You could graduate, too, I wouldn't mind.
P.P.S.  Of course, that wouldn't leave much in the way of opponents....

It seems odd, even suspicious, that the Captured Nomad is actually a golem.  I feel
there must be some dark hidden significance in this. -- Timor Unred

     Yep, it's a plot.  An evil, dark plot.

Massey -- What are you doing here?  Why not stay home with your partner Fergusson and
make tractors? -- Fallon Grimm

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