                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, in SNOWBOUND 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, REFUSE fought 
PERSISTENT BEGGAR and gained 15 points and contributed to THE HEAP's 3-2-0.  AL 
CAPONE has lost to 4-H, falling 5 points, while helping make CRIMINAL MINDS a 1-3-0 
turn.  Defending hers title for another turn, MRS. VAUGHN kept MIDDLE WAY 6's 
warrior, CASS DOLAN, from claiming the throne.  Tell me, is nothing sacred?  I have 
heard from unimpeachable sources that The Victory Tavern 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.  I also notice that the DARQUE FORCES II 
stable was the most avoided team this turn.  Come on SNOWBOUND, what are you afraid 
of?  And guess who avoided DARQUE FORCES II stable the most?  Believe it or not, it 
was LIFE IMPACTS.  Anyone surprised?   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  Is it really true that SNOWBOUND 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.  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

Special note to those of you who didn't know, the Life Impacts were originated in
DM81 some time ago, and moved here after a successful show there.  The current
Consortium team there is Capital Cartel. -- Life Impact Publicist

to fall asleep during the fight, but sometimes it just happens. -- Petra Quord

Of course the Khalhums Dwarf doesn't like hospitals.  They make him shave. --
Inglemort Juls

Lorraine Bobbitt -- I don't know what Cass was going on about last month, but I think
you look FINE.  So, what's a pretty little thing like you doing in a place like this?
-- Gobert Hinny

Whistin' Dixie -- That was a fine warrior you sent to the Bone Yard way too early.
You might of even liked her as I did.  With an expert in init. she wasn't bad for a
slasher (11-9-10-11-11-15-17). -- Sire Blackguard

Gobert -- Mr Hiny, we will see each other again.  My treat next time. -- Lorraine
Bobbitt

Oh my, Sir Blackguard has put his trust in me by sending me of all people to the
