     "So this is what you must do," says the very tall human, "find shelter in the
old stable over there."  The mysterious human pointed to an old vacant stable.
"You're to find and get well acquainted with each weapon and begin practice
immediately!"
     The other two individuals, what appeared to be a humanoid canine figure bearing
a dark hooded cloak to attempt to stay dry from the constant rain, and a hulking
golem of a figure, also wrapped in a similar cloak listen intenly to the human.
     "What is your name?" asked the canine, also known as Lord Bane.  "He won't tell
us," said Grievous eyeing the human with tactical precision.  "He just expects us to
follow the simple order of moving to the stable, getting good, and showing these
imbeciles what we're about," said Grievous.  "So I say let's do it."
     "What will we be called," asked Bane, "for it looks like other 
stables have team of five."
     "Well, you will be called by the CODE you are bound to and honor, Law of Twos,"
says the human wiping rain drops from his face.  "No need for five, you two get good,
and in 6 months time, I'll have you two show the world your skills."
     "Law of Twos it is," said Bane, eyeing General Grievous.
     The two heavily cloaked figures walk off through the slashing rain to their new
stable.
     "Just like old time," whispers the tall human.  "We'll see how they adapt to
this style of confrontation."
     Then the tall human is seen no more...

                                      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, VENOM DECAY fought 
HARVESTER and gained 18 points and contributed to TOWER OF SNAKES' 3-2-0.  LORD BANE 
has lost to SERGEANT 11, falling 9 points, while helping make LAW OF TWO'S a 0-2-0 
turn.  Defending his title for another turn, THE HAMILTONS kept WRECKING CREW's 
warrior, HAMMERJACK, from claiming the throne.  Can someone confirm a rumor for me?  
I hear the top team makes their losing fighters do dishes at The Warty Toad until 
they win.  Maybe?   
     Oriental wise man once say, 'Hiding behind shields prevents proper sun tanning.' 
Inscrutable, but true.  The most challenged warrior this turn was WRECKING CREW's 
warrior ENRAGE.  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 KATI-TEI has more dishwashers per capita that 
fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...   
     I like this place, KATI-TEI, the taverns have old wine, and young serving girls. 
Who could ask for more?  Always good to rest in KATI-TEI, but never good to wear out 
my welcome.  Look for me in future turns.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets 
to paper-- Alarond the Scribe

One-four.  I *despair* of us!  The Dutchman even lost to a Veteran Mercenary.  I
would hang my head in shame if I had done that, but *I* had the win, over a managed
gladiator whose name is unknown, but his acronym is NEPTR.  I can't help wondering
what mouthful of embarrassment he's hiding behind that acronym. -- Walking the Dog,
