                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, in VEASTIAN 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, REGRET fought 
EMBEZZLING SCRIBE and gained 21 points and contributed to HELL'S PAWNS' 2-3-1.  
KELROTH has lost to DURCIEF, falling 8 points, while helping make THE FAMILY a 4-1-0 
turn.  We should ask TIRO COCOCO about the thrill of victory, and what being the new 
Duelmaster does for a warrior, he's now the one to ask.  Tell me, is nothing sacred?  
I have heard from unimpeachable sources that The Dripping Blade uses trolls in their 
stew.  Talk about gristle!   
     He who challenges well, fights well.  He who avoids without cause, shall lose 
for good reasons.  My mama told me that one.  In a brave attempt, DISMAY from HELL'S 
PAWNS challenged up 20 points to fight STILTZ from the THE FAMILY stable.  DISMAY 
perhaps got hers just desserts, seeing as she lost to STILTZ and ended up with 56 
recognition points.   
     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 VEASTIAN 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.  Always good to rest in VEASTIAN, but never good to wear out my welcome.  
Look for me in future turns.  Until you see my quill in VEASTIAN again, farewell-- 
Alarond the Scribe

Dismay -- I felt that, but then I said to myself, "Self, you can do this!"  And by
the gods of golems, I could!  I like that.  It makes me feel all warm and fuzzy
inside.  Hmm, probably need some more oil.... -- Tiro Cococo
P.S.  I'm not your secret admirer, though I have no doubt that I could work up some
fine admiration for you if that appeals.  But only if you want it.  I'm not one to
push in where I won't be appreciated.

Ribsplitter -- Darn, and those were my favorite ribs, too!  I had plans for those
ribs. -- Stiltz

Vargas Tarn, Veteran Mercenary -- I had supposed, sir, that a man of your great
experience would have something worthwhile to teach me.  Why is this not so?  Are you
one of those benighted people who don't think women should know how to fight?  Or has
your "experienced veteran" status been inflated beyond the facts? -- Tiro Cuckoo

Where do these wretched Orcs come from?  We no sooner capture and subdue one than
there's another on the doorstep!  It seems to me that some kind of decisive action is
called for to end this pollution of our fair land with Orcs and other racial
rabble...such as Shews, Karragit, Dwarves, Elves.... -- Vahnzur, eyes shining
fanatically

I never thought I'd agree with Vahnzur about something, but this IS the outside
limit!  Dwarves begging?  It's got to be some kind of plot, because EVERYBODY knows
that all Dwarves are rich. -- Kelroth

Azereth has returned!  I am the manager for Scarlet Blades in DM 25.  I was a member
of the Crimson Alliance and the Crimson Brotherhood (which was composed of former CA
members).  I've been out of the game for many (at least 5) years.  I would like to
hear from anyone who remembers me, as well as any Alliance that is seeking to add
experienced managers to their roster.  Contact me at:
