                                      SPY REPORT

     Busy, busy, busy, lots of things happening in VEASTIAN this turn, and let's 
start with a look at some of the teams.  The THE BRETHREN guild has had a 4-1-0 turn 
and deserves to be watched in the future.  You never know where this kind of thing 
can lead.  And let's see, SENJIRO fought FELSTAVA and gained 22 points and 
contributed to THE FAMILY's 1-4-0.  FELSTAVA has lost to SENJIRO, falling 17 points, 
while helping make THE BRETHREN a 4-1-0 turn.  Defending hers title for another turn, 
ELOWAN kept LUROCIAN ROYALTY's warrior, KING COREY, from claiming the throne.  Can 
someone confirm a rumor for me?  I hear the top team makes their losing fighters do 
dishes at The Swinging Aardvark 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.   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  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.   
     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 the sun next rises and my pen sets to paper-- 
Alarond the Scribe

managed to create an empire, don't you? -- Senjiro

Well, yes.  They're even supposed to have done it by CONQUERING, if you can imagine
that! -- Kirjenz

Even an Ambitious Guard could hold them off. -- Vaistinie

Our congratulations to Elowan. -- Jorja and the Family
