                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail STORMCROWE!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed for 
your deeds.  MIRACLE WORKSHOP stable has parlayed this turn's 2-1-1 into a 3 space 
move up the rankings.  This brings them up to 3rd place.  Good work, guys!  And let's 
see, SPEAKS IN TONGUES fought WOLFSBANE HAMMER and gained 21 points and contributed 
to MIRACLE WORKSHOP's 2-1-1.  DICE has lost to PAYNE, falling 8 points, while helping 
make SRETSAMLEUD II a 1-1-0 turn.  We should ask HALF about the thrill of victory, 
and what being the new Duelmaster does for a warrior, he's now the one to ask.  By 
the way, was that our Duelmaster that I saw last night, cramped under the table at 
The Shadow's Fountain?   
     The crowd's roar, the smell of iron and leather, mixed with sweat, what more 
could a warrior ask of life?  Well, besides that.  MUTANT HAMMERZ has cause to stand 
tall, as they were STORMCROWE's most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a 
team to beat.  And guess who avoided MUTANT HAMMERZ stable the most?  Believe it or 
not, it was DARQUE FORCES.  Anyone surprised?   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  WOLFSBANE HAMMER has departed STORMCROWE, leaving MUTANT HAMMERZ without 
their 7-10-0 warrior.  Question, just what was hers team doing at the taverns last 
night?  We'd like to remind certain teams not to rob the graves of their enemies.  
You know who you are; and it's considered rude.   
     I like this place, STORMCROWE, 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 you see my quill in 
STORMCROWE again, farewell-- Alarond the Scribe

     all don't catch it.  Well, actually, if you could catch it and KILL it, that
