                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, in KATI-TEI a quiet thief gets rich, but a quiet spymaster gets poor.  
So bring me ale and harken to my tidbits of news.  It seems the training can make the 
difference, as CULT OF THE SUN is pushed out of top team by WANDERERS, who came from 
3rd with a 4-1-0 this turn.  And let's see, VALGARD fought JAMES DOOLITTLE and gained 
25 points and contributed to WANDERERS' 4-1-0.  JAMES DOOLITTLE has lost to VALGARD, 
falling 19 points, while helping make MEDAL OF HONOR 26 a 1-2-0 turn.  Defending his 
title for another turn, WILLIAM CRAWFORD kept WANDERERS' warrior, FORANDIN, 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?   
     The crowd's roar, the smell of iron and leather, mixed with sweat, what more 
could a warrior ask of life?  Well, besides that.  I also notice that the WANDERERS 
stable was the most avoided team this turn.  Come on KATI-TEI, what are you afraid 
of?  And avoiding WANDERERS more than any other team we find THE PLAGUE.  KATI-TEI, 
are we going to accept, or respect this sort of thing?   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  The Welcome Wench declares a free round for EYES THAT BURN and all 
of THE PLAGUE, for having revenged MEDAL OF HONOR 26's GRUNT 3 for killing one of 
their comrades.  We'd like to remind certain teams not to rob the graves of their 
enemies.  You know who you are; and it's considered rude.   
     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
