                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail VEASTIAN!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed for your 
deeds.  And let's see, MGR HATES SL'ERS fought MARTINE and gained 12 points and 
contributed to IT IS KNOWN's 1-0-0.  MARTINE has lost to MGR HATES SL'ERS, falling 5 
points, while helping make THE FAMILY a 2-3-0 turn.  This turn LYRICAL DRUGGIST 
challenged BLACK ZANJO in what was VEASTIAN's Title bout.  And not without some 
honor, BLACK ZANJO now claims the title and throne of Duelmaster of VEASTIAN.  Tell 
me, is nothing sacred?  I have heard from unimpeachable sources that The Dripping 
Blade 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.  BATTLE FROGS 12-15 has cause to stand 
tall, as they were VEASTIAN's most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a 
team to beat.  And avoiding BATTLE FROGS 12-15 more than any other team we find ORL 
2013K.  VEASTIAN, are we going to accept, or respect this sort of thing?  Well, 
sports fans, take notice that BLACK ZANJO from THE FAMILY was VEASTIAN's most 
challenged warrior this turn.   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  Is it really true that VEASTIAN has more dishwashers per capita that 
fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...   
     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

Two-three, with the wins being over standbys.  How totally unsurprising.  Better than
no wins at all, though.  And, even though we've got snow on the ground still, it's
warming up.  Spring IS coming.  There were weeks when I didn't believe that. -- Zilla
