                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail ZENSU!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed for your 
deeds.  It seems the training can make the difference, as CSU COLLEGE RADIO is pushed 
out of top team by BEYOND THE PALE, who came from 2nd with a 2-3-0 this turn.  And 
let's see, JON STONE fought EMBEZZLING SCRIBE and gained 10 points and contributed to 
BEYOND THE PALE's 2-3-0.  NINA STENN has lost to DANGEROUS CRIMINAL, falling 10 
points, while helping make BEYOND THE PALE a 2-3-0 turn.  Due to his absence and 
inability to defend the throne, MORK CALLING ORSON has lost the title of Duelmaster.  
And all eyes were on KORVIN ROSS this turn as he ascended to the throne of 
Duelmaster.  ZENSU has a new victor!  By the way, was that our Duelmaster that I saw 
last night, cramped under the table at The Victory Tavern?   
     I tell you, a green quarterstaff lasts longer than a seasoned sapling.  A basher 
friend of mine assures me this is true.  I also notice that the BEYOND THE PALE 
stable was the most avoided team this turn.  Come on ZENSU, what are you afraid of?  
And guess who avoided BEYOND THE PALE stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was 
GRIZZLED VETERANS.  Anyone surprised?  The most challenged warrior this turn was 
BEYOND THE PALE's warrior EBBUTT MARSH.  More fighters challenged him than challenged 
the Duelmaster!   
     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...   
     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 you see my quill in ZENSU again, farewell-- 
Alarond the Scribe

And today, we went one-five.  *I* defeated a Soldier, but everyone else lost:  to the
Seas of Floyd, the Adventurers, and the Radio people.  No standbys!  Rather a
surprise, though I suppose other people may have fought them.  I didn't notice.  *I*
was paying attention to *my* fight. -- Nina Stenn
