                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail VEASTIAN!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed for your 
deeds.  It seems the training can make the difference, as THE FAMILY is pushed out of 
top team by EPIC RAP, who came from 2nd with a 3-1-1 this turn.  And let's see, 
MOUNTAIN ROLL fought BLACK ZANJO and gained 21 points and contributed to SHEWISH 
BANQUET's 2-3-0.  ZILLA KHIRNAJ has lost to HALFTIME, falling 14 points, while 
helping make THE FAMILY a 2-3-0 turn.  The attempts to dethrone the Duelmaster have 
failed, and ARCHERS OF LOAF remains VEASTIAN's top warrior for another turn.  Tell 
me, is nothing sacred?  I have heard from unimpeachable sources that The Warty Toad 
uses trolls in their stew.  Talk about gristle!   
     Oriental wise man once say, 'Hiding behind shields prevents proper sun tanning.' 
Inscrutable, but true.   
     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

Hmm, three-two again.  Loss to the duelmaster, no shame there.  Anybody might lose to
a duelmaster, although it would be a kindness, I feel, to provide him with a loss to
balance his record.  The rest... two wins over standbys, a win and a loss to less
prominent managed warriors.  This works well enough. -- the Family
