                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, friends and fiends, welcome to your friendly neighborhood spyreport.  
I doubt ZENSU will ever be the same.  WAR-C-KERS stable has parlayed this turn's 
0-0-0 into a 3 space move up the rankings.  This brings them up to 5th place.  Good 
work, guys!  And let's see, CRAZY TRAIN fought EMBEZZLING SCRIBE and gained 12 points 
and contributed to PHILANTHROPISTS' 4-1-0.  CHRISTOPHER LEE has lost to PARANOID, 
falling 8 points, while helping make MEN OF 1,000 FACES a 0-2-0 turn.  The attempts 
to dethrone the Duelmaster have failed, and TRIANGLE MAN remains ZENSU's top warrior 
for another turn.  Can someone confirm a rumor for me?  I hear the top team makes 
their losing fighters do dishes at The Victory Tavern until they win.  Maybe?   
     Oriental wise man once say, 'Hiding behind shields prevents proper sun tanning.' 
Inscrutable, but true.  Well, sports fans, take notice that BLOOD BATH from 
PHILANTHROPISTS was ZENSU's most challenged warrior this turn.   
     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 ZENSU has more dishwashers per capita that 
fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...   
     I like this place, ZENSU, the taverns have old wine, and young serving girls.  
Who could ask for more?  Always good to rest in ZENSU, but never good to wear out my 
welcome.  Look for me in future turns.  Until you see my quill in ZENSU again, 
farewell-- Alarond the Scribe

Spirited -- Yes, I remember hearing that you guys are always like this, back to the
well over and over again, until the pitcher breaks.  Oh, well, the tourney will be
soon, and then we won't see you again for a couple of months.  I can stand that. --
O. Poste

M. Chardinee wasn't supposed to DO that! -- Blonde Grenade
P.S.  I mean, he was supposed to just, like, stand there!

Grilled Grizzly -- You're a tough cut of meat, aren't you? -- Jenipher

ATTENTION ALL YOU ALLIANCE-TYPE PEOPLE:
For the purposes of tourney newsletter alliance listings (when I am able to do them),
you may only be listed in ONE alliance.  In other words, you have to choose!  If you
are a part of Englebert's Alliance and Englebert's Alliance is "part" of Ruthrauf's
Alliance, I will list you EITHER as part of Englebert's Alliance OR as part of
Ruthrauf's Alliance, NOT both.  The default would be the top-level alliance,
Ruthrauf's, in this example.  If you'd rather be listed separately, let me know and I
will do so, but that will be the only listing you get. -- The Saint, keeper of ever-
more-complicated lists

The Company of Brothers (TCB) welcomes two new members to our alliance...Liam the
Goth and Buddy Lee.  We have no doubt that they will prove to be assets to our
alliance and the general dueling community. -- Baphomet, co-founder, T.C.B.
