                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, in TRICORUS a quiet thief gets rich, but a quiet spymaster gets poor.  
So bring me ale and harken to my tidbits of news.  It seems the training can make the 
difference, as RONIN is pushed out of top team by DARK HORSEMEN, who came from 2nd 
with a 2-1-0 this turn.  And let's see, MARGALH fought THE USEROUS MERCHANT and 
gained 21 points and contributed to DARK HORSEMEN's 2-1-0.  GRAPE has lost to 
VENEMOUS CONCUBINE, falling 4 points, while helping make FRUITS a 0-1-0 turn.  This 
turn WILLIE MCGEE challenged DELANGE in what was TRICORUS' Title bout.  Defending his 
title for another turn, WILLIE MCGEE kept DARK HORSEMEN's warrior, DELANGE, from 
claiming the throne.  By the way, was that our Duelmaster that I saw last night, 
cramped under the table at The Blue Dolphin Inn?   
     Oriental wise man once say, 'Hiding behind shields prevents proper sun tanning.' 
Inscrutable, but true.  RONIN has cause to stand tall, as they were TRICORUS' most 
avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a team to beat.  And guess who avoided 
RONIN stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was FRUITS.  Anyone surprised?  Well, 
sports fans, take notice that DELANGE from DARK HORSEMEN was TRICORUS' most 
challenged warrior this turn.  Well now, what do you expect when someone like MARK 
MESSIER from ALL-UGLY TEAM challenges down 20 points to fight ZALGEI of DARK 
HORSEMEN?  Well, will you look at this, MARK MESSIER was beat by ZALGEI, and ALL-UGLY 
TEAM will have to explain why they made such a challenge in the first place.   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  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.   
     Thought for the day, a new sword shines bright, but the notched sword sings the 
sweetest.  Well, I'm burning daylight here in TRICORUS and I've a long road ahead of 
me.  Happy Trails.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets to paper-- Alarond the 
Scribe

Willie McGee -- We tried to get away with just one personal for all three fights this
week (and where are our teammates?), but no luck.  So, good bloodfeud, even if it was
unintentional.  You going to write a word from the top? -- Delange

Mark Messier -- You are SOOO ugly, I just couldn't stand to be out there with you. --
Zalgei

Seijuro -- I should hope so, considering the difference in your experience! --
