                                      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.  And let's see, MANNY LEHMAN fought 
MARGANAD and gained 21 points and contributed to PANSY DIVISION's 1-4-0.  MARGANAD 
has lost to MANNY LEHMAN, falling 19 points, while helping make DARK HORSEMEN a 3-2-0 
turn.  Defending his title for another turn, WHO kept DARK HORSEMEN's warrior, 
JUBHAL, from claiming the throne.  Can someone confirm a rumor for me?  I hear the 
top team makes their losing fighters do dishes at The Blue Dolphin Inn until they 
win.  Maybe?   
     The crowd's roar, the smell of iron and leather, mixed with sweat, what more 
could a warrior ask of life?  Well, besides that.  I also notice that the QUESTIONS 
stable was the most avoided team this turn.  Come on TRICORUS, what are you afraid 
of?  And guess who avoided QUESTIONS stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was 
VENTURE BROS..  Anyone surprised?   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  The manager of VENTURE BROS. will not be pleased to learn that RUSTY, a 
3-0-0 fighter, has been killed at the hands of SERPENTS HOLD 2's TACK TACK.  SERPENTS 
HOLD 2, with any luck VENTURE BROS. will successfully bloodfeud TACK TACK for killing 
such a warrior as RUSTY.  Have a little decency, will ya?  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, TRICORUS, the taverns have old wine, and young serving girls. 
Who could ask for more?  Well, I'm burning daylight here in TRICORUS and I've a long 
road ahead of me.  Happy Trails.  Until you see my quill in TRICORUS again, 
farewell-- Alarond the Scribe

Answer of the week:  How should I know?

Who -- Indeed, how should I know? -- Jubhal

Tack Tack -- Better tacks than ticks. -- Galdor O'Hare

So much, and not much, for the Fratsfa Slave. -- Marganad

Sgt. Hatred -- Blew you away today, didn't I?  I suppose that will change if you come
back for a rematch, but so it goes. -- Windsong

Rusty -- Maybe that'll teach me not to go to bed so late. -- Before Sunrise
P.S.  But probably not.
