                                      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, LIRVENZ fought 
VETERAN MERCENARY and gained 15 points and contributed to THE FAMILY's 3-1-0.  
PRINCESS EMILY II has lost to VAISTINIE, falling 4 points, while helping make 
LUROCIAN ROYALTY a 1-1-0 turn.  The attempts to dethrone the Duelmaster have failed, 
and PRINCE CONNOR 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 Swinging Aardvark until they win.  Maybe?   
     Oriental wise man once say, 'Hiding behind shields prevents proper sun tanning.' 
Inscrutable, but true.   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  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 you see my quill in VEASTIAN again, 
farewell-- Alarond the Scribe

slow down a bit for my next fight and see what happens. -- Marius
