                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, friends and fiends, welcome to your friendly neighborhood spyreport.  
I doubt VEASTIAN will ever be the same.  And let's see, ELOWAN fought PRINCE CONNOR 
and gained 18 points and contributed to OBSCURE LORE's 1-1-0.  PRINCE JACKSON has 
lost to BITT BETRO, falling 12 points, while helping make LUROCIAN ROYALTY a 2-3-1 
turn.  The attempts to dethrone the Duelmaster have failed, and PRINCESS EMILY 
remains VEASTIAN's top warrior for another turn.  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?   
     He who challenges well, fights well.  He who avoids without cause, shall lose 
for good reasons.  My mama told me that one.  I also notice that the MEDAL OF HONOR 
F1 stable was the most avoided team this turn.  Come on VEASTIAN, what are you afraid 
of?  And avoiding MEDAL OF HONOR F1 more than any other team we find PUD POWER.  
VEASTIAN, are we going to accept, or respect this sort of thing?   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  I guess it was coming sooner or later, OBSCURE LORE has lost MECHAN, and 
VEASTIAN is bound to miss it.  For a little while, at least.  Seriously now, is it 
really honorable for PRINCESS EMILY from LUROCIAN ROYALTY to kill MECHAN and give 
OBSCURE LORE the chance to bloodfeud?  Mmmm, could be.  Congratulations go out to PUD 
POWER, with CARVED IVORY revenging a bloodfeud against UMBAR CONN III of 
PHILANTHROPISTS.  Is it really true that VEASTIAN has more dishwashers per capita 
that fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...   
     I like this place, VEASTIAN, the taverns have old wine, and young serving girls. 
Who could ask for more?  Well, I'm burning daylight here in VEASTIAN and I've a long 
road ahead of me.  Happy Trails.  Until you see my quill in VEASTIAN again, 
farewell-- Alarond the Scribe
