                                      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.  And let's see, N'KAI fought THE 
HAND OF DOG and gained 15 points and contributed to THE PLAGUE's 3-2-0.  THE HAND OF 
DOG has lost to N'KAI, falling 12 points, while helping make DA DOG POWNDAZ a 3-2-0 
turn.  Defending his title for another turn, THE WAIT kept WANDERERS' warrior, GRIMM 
LURCHER, 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?   
     He who challenges well, fights well.  He who avoids without cause, shall lose 
for good reasons.  My mama told me that one.  THE STORM FRONT has cause to stand 
tall, as they were KATI-TEI's most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a 
team to beat.  And avoiding THE STORM FRONT more than any other team we find THE 
PLAGUE.  KATI-TEI, are we going to accept, or respect this sort of thing?  Well, 
sports fans, take notice that BALIN CHANE from WANDERERS was KATI-TEI's most 
challenged warrior this turn.  In a brave attempt, OLD YELLER from DA DOG POWNDAZ 
challenged up 19 points to fight MARLIN REEVE from the WANDERERS stable.  OLD YELLER 
perhaps got his just desserts, seeing as he was beat by MARLIN REEVE and ended up 
with 60 recognition points.  DEVIL DOG of DA DOG POWNDAZ had better have a good 
reason for challenging down 13 points in a challenge which he won.  I thought DEVIL 
DOG showed great skill and promise when he subdued BALIN CHANE.  All right, so I 
slept through it!  Big deal!   
     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 KATI-TEI has more dishwashers per capita that 
fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...   
     Remember, blood on the purple robe does not change it from a purple robe.  Dare 
to fight bravely.  Always good to rest in KATI-TEI, but never good to wear out my 
welcome.  Look for me in future turns.  Until you see my quill in KATI-TEI again, 
farewell-- Alarond the Scribe

Tore Naydo -- Well, damn.  I always heard you-all were dangerous.  But really, I may
have been grossly misunderstood, but I was never a bull, and red capes don't stir me
up all that much. -- Ghost of Stray CATcher
P.S.  Maybe I can reincarnate in my proper persona as a Stray Cat.  Lot of them
around here.
P.P.S.  Just as a matter of curiosity, were you TRYING to kill me (all those shots to
the vitals), or was it just a case of your deadly style?

Devil Dog -- You ARE a devil, you dog!  I don't have an intact slipper left. -- Balin
Chane

Red Tentacle -- Aha!  I spent WEEKS studying knots with the Boy Scouts (and studying
other things in between), and it finally paid off--I was able to tie YOU in a knot.
Just a granny, because as I was about to do the second cross-and-loop thingie, you
squirmed the other way.  A nuisance, but there it is. -- Samara

The Wait -- I never did care much for waiting around.  I suppose it was the "scum
sympathy vote" that got me Popularity Leader. -- Grimm Lurcher

Old Yeller -- Have you considered peroxide?  It might brighten your color, make it
less, ah, dish-washy. -- Marlin Reeve
