                                      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, DIRK DIGGLER fought KHARIJANH 
and gained 21 points and contributed to BOOGIE NIGHTS' 1-0-0.  KHARIJANH has lost to 
DIRK DIGGLER, falling 9 points, while helping make THE FAMILY a 2-3-0 turn.  
Defending his title for another turn, ARCHERS OF LOAF kept THE FAMILY's warrior, 
LOLITA MARIA, from claiming the throne.  By the way, was that our Duelmaster that I 
saw last night, cramped under the table at The Dripping Blade?   
     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.  Is it really true that VEASTIAN has more dishwashers per capita that 
fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...   
     Thought for the day, a new sword shines bright, but the notched sword sings the 
sweetest.  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

Archers of Loaf -- Tricky, using your bowstave as a quarterstaff!  I'd avoid you if
it was a workable option. -- Lolita Maria
P.S.  The arena's too small, though.

Stupid Mercenary.  Probably comes with all that hair.  Trying to pass as a dwarf!
Ha.  He'd better shrink some, then. -- Kharijanh

Dirk Diggler -- That was devastatingly embarrassing. -- Marco the Knife
P.S.  Yeah, I know, I'm not a dwarf, either.  But it didn't seem worth the paperwork
to change it.

Franklin St. -- Well, *I* didn't know you were a ONE-WAY street! -- Black Zanjo

And a Userous Merchant.  Bah. -- Zilla Khirnaj

ALL -- MERRY CHRISTMAS, HAPPY HOLIDAYS AND A HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL IN ALASTARI!!!
May your year end in peace and the new year hold great things for you and your
families. -- Gentleben (Sunset-21, Morya-28, Arvat-32 and Talahya-100)
