                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail VEASTIAN!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed for your 
deeds.  And let's see, SHADOW FROGGY fought ZILLA KHIRNAJ and gained 22 points and 
contributed to BATTLE FROGS 12-15's 1-2-0.  LORD TOADMYRE has lost to MORDANT 
DESERTER, falling 12 points, while helping make BATTLE FROGS 12-15 a 1-2-0 turn.  
Defending his title for another turn, BLACK ZANJO kept ORL 2013K's warrior, LYRICAL 
DRUGGIST, from claiming the throne.  Tell me, is nothing sacred?  I have heard from 
unimpeachable sources that The Swinging Aardvark uses trolls in their stew.  Talk 
about gristle!   
     Oriental wise man once say, 'Hiding behind shields prevents proper sun tanning.' 
Inscrutable, but true.  The most challenged warrior this turn was THE FAMILY's 
warrior ZILLA KHIRNAJ.  More fighters challenged her than challenged the Duelmaster!  
     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?  Always good to rest in VEASTIAN, but never good to wear out 
my welcome.  Look for me in future turns.  Until you see my quill in VEASTIAN again, 
farewell-- Alarond the Scribe

Can we declare a Snow Day and just not show up?  I tried to practice and my hand
froze to the sword.  Fine while fighting, maybe, but awkward after.  Three-two-one
for us, with the deader being a Convicted Thief.  Could be worse! -- Black Zanjo,
