                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, in STORMCROWE a quiet thief gets rich, but a quiet spymaster gets 
poor.  So bring me ale and harken to my tidbits of news.  And let's see, GLITRINA 
fought PULLED ORC and gained 14 points and contributed to NORTHERN LIGHTS' 2-3-0.  
PULLED ORC has lost to GLITRINA, falling 12 points, while helping make SHEWISH BUFFET 
a 2-2-0 turn.  Defending hers title for another turn, LAPUR BISQUE kept NORTHERN 
LIGHTS' warrior, ERMINE, from claiming the throne.  By the way, was that our 
Duelmaster that I saw last night, cramped under the table at The Shadow's Fountain?   
     He who challenges well, fights well.  He who avoids without cause, shall lose 
for good reasons.  My mama told me that one.   
     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.  Is it really true that STORMCROWE 
has more dishwashers per capita that fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...   
     Remember, blood on the purple robe does not change it from a purple robe.  Dare 
to fight bravely.  Always good to rest in STORMCROWE, but never good to wear out my 
welcome.  Look for me in future turns.  Until you see my quill in STORMCROWE again, 
farewell-- Alarond the Scribe
