                                      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, BAIBAR fought JONAS 
SWITCHBLADE and gained 23 points and contributed to THE FAMILY's 5-0-0.  JEREMIAH 
BROADBLADE has lost to KIRVINJ, falling 10 points, while helping make WARRIORS OF 
STEEL a 1-3-0 turn.  We should ask VAISTINIE about the thrill of victory, and what 
being the new Duelmaster does for a warrior, she's now the one to ask.  Tell me, is 
nothing sacred?  I have heard from unimpeachable sources that The Welcome Wench uses 
trolls in their stew.  Talk about gristle!   
     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.  A brave warrior does not carry a red shield, he has nothing to cover or 
hide when the fight is over.  Consider well.   
     I like this place, VEASTIAN, the taverns have old wine, and young serving girls. 
Who could ask for more?  It's been nice chatting with you, until we meet again, keep 
your swords sharp and your hammers heavy.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets 
to paper-- Alarond the Scribe
