                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, friends and fiends, welcome to your friendly neighborhood spyreport.  
I doubt STORMCROWE will ever be the same.  And let's see, WALRUS fought RAGGEDY ANN 
and gained 23 points and contributed to NORTHERN LIGHTS' 3-1-0.  RAGGEDY ANN has lost 
to WALRUS, falling 15 points, while helping make DARQUE FORCES a 4-1-0 turn.  The 
attempts to dethrone the Duelmaster have failed, and HOT LIPS remains STORMCROWE's 
top warrior for another turn.  By the way, was that our Duelmaster that I saw last 
night, cramped under the table at The Shadow's Fountain?   
     Oriental wise man once say, 'Hiding behind shields prevents proper sun tanning.' 
Inscrutable, but true.   
     The Dark Arena is for those who cannot win, not who cannot lose with grace.  
Dignity in life or death is the warrior's creed.  This is not good to see.  Why pray 
tell has CRUNCH been sent to the Dark Arena by A DEAL'S A DEAL?  And why with a 2-0-0 
record??  Is it really true that STORMCROWE 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.  Well, I'm burning daylight here in STORMCROWE and I've a long road ahead 
of me.  Happy Trails.  Until you see my quill in STORMCROWE again, farewell-- Alarond 
the Scribe

Hot Lips -- Those scorching kisses just melt me away. -- Frostflare

Aunty Macassar -- (indignantly)  What was that for?  I don't use greasy kid stuff! --
Walrus

The Bride -- Listen, you can't get a man that way!  Not even Frank Stein!  You've got
to be softer and more welcoming, at least till you catch one. -- Frostbite

Crunch -- Don't worry, dear boy.  ALL men are confused when they see me. -- Lady
Winter
P.S.  Besides, just because you're Shewish doesn't mean you HAVE to be dumb.  Down
with stereotypes, eh?

Celestial Rose -- Is that like a compass rose? -- Ghost of Blizzard Bill
P.S.  If I had to go, at least it was at the hands of a beautiful woman.

Hot Lips -- Congratulations. -- All of us at Northern Lights

All -- I support Vendetta Cartel's observation of The Dark Knights!  If war is
declared on V.C. by The Dark Knights, then war is also declared on The Dark Knights
of the Desolate Empire by The Avengers of Light!  We have been quietly awaiting such
a chance to expose ourselves (all interested parties contact me c/o The Barbarians:
DM 31, Attn: Timothias)!  Come, Vendetta Cartel, let us show these broke-down
"Knights" what true warriors are! -- Gemini Goldphoenix, Overlord of The Avengers of
Light
