                                      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.  And let's see, MELANJI fought TORN CLOTH and 
gained 14 points and contributed to THE FAMILY's 2-3-0.  TORN CLOTH has lost to 
MELANJI, falling 12 points, while helping make IS THAT A CLUE? a 2-3-0 turn.  And all 
eyes were on DANIEL SILVERLOCK this turn as he ascended to the throne of Duelmaster.  
VEASTIAN has a new victor!  Tell me, is nothing sacred?  I have heard from 
unimpeachable sources that The Warty Toad 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.   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  A brave warrior does not carry a red shield, he has nothing to cover 
or hide when the fight is over.  Consider well.   
     Remember, blood on the purple robe does not change it from a purple robe.  Dare 
to fight bravely.  Always good to rest in VEASTIAN, 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
