                                      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.  MEN OF ILL-REPUTE2 stable has 
parlayed this turn's 4-1-2 into a 4 space move up the rankings.  This brings them up 
to 2nd place.  Good work, guys!  And let's see, LEAN MAC fought CONVICTED THIEF and 
gained 14 points and contributed to MEN OF ILL-REPUTE2's 4-1-2.  NEWLIN OHM has lost 
to CRUSHING BELIAL, falling 8 points, while helping make MIDDLE WAY 6 a 3-2-0 turn.  
The attempts to dethrone the Duelmaster have failed, and KINGU remains SNOWBOUND's 
top warrior for another turn.  By the way, was that our Duelmaster that I saw last 
night, cramped under the table at The Victory Tavern?   
     I tell you, a green quarterstaff lasts longer than a seasoned sapling.  A basher 
friend of mine assures me this is true.  I also notice that the PUBLIC ENEMY stable 
was the most avoided team this turn.  Come on SNOWBOUND, what are you afraid of?  And 
guess who avoided PUBLIC ENEMY stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was 
MESOPOTAMIA.  Anyone surprised?  Well, sports fans, take notice that GARUTH HOLM from 
MIDDLE WAY 6 was SNOWBOUND's most challenged warrior this turn.   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  You gotta do what you gotta do.  OPEN SESAME has sent HAIRY MONSTER to the 
Dark Arena.  The deed is done.  Lift the ale, and toast the memory.  This is not good 
to see.  Why pray tell has HAIRY MONSTER been sent to the Dark Arena by OPEN SESAME?  
And why with a 13-6-0 record??  The grave that BASH BROS HOCKEY had dug for OWN GOAL 
may yet be filled with the body of ICE TRAPPER.  Seldom are the likes of this to be 
seen.  OWN GOAL lives still!  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, SNOWBOUND, the taverns have old wine, and young serving 
girls.  Who could ask for more?  Well, I'm burning daylight here in SNOWBOUND and 
I've a long road ahead of me.  Happy Trails.  Until you see my quill in SNOWBOUND 
again, farewell-- Alarond the Scribe

Turn 333, is that significant of something?  Like, sorta bad news, but not REALLY
bad?

Bert & Ernie -- Oh, I bet we can find worse duelmasters if we try. -- Jorja

Smitty -- Anybody can do it once, which includes us.  Keeping up that rate of gain is
harder. -- Jorja

There were standbys OUT there, "fighting" on the sands of Snowbound, but did WE get
any?  No!  Talk about a kick when we're down.  An oh-fer.  Darn. -- Jenna Kuul

Our congratulations to Kingu and Hairy Monster. -- Jorja and those who walk the
Middle Way
