                                      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.  The VENTURE BROS. guild has had a 
5-0-0 turn and deserves to be watched in the future.  You never know where this kind 
of thing can lead.  And let's see, QUIZBOY fought EMBEZZLING SCRIBE and gained 21 
points and contributed to VENTURE BROS.'s 5-0-0.  WHY has lost to TACK TACK, falling 
10 points, while helping make QUESTIONS a 2-3-0 turn.  The attempts to dethrone the 
Duelmaster have failed, and WHO remains TRICORUS' top warrior for another turn.  Tell 
me, is nothing sacred?  I have heard from unimpeachable sources that The Blue Dolphin 
Inn uses trolls in their stew.  Talk about gristle!   
     Oriental wise man once say, 'Hiding behind shields prevents proper sun tanning.' 
Inscrutable, but true.   
     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.  Will SERPENTS HOLD 2 get away with 
TACK TACK having killed RUSTY of VENTURE BROS.?  One more turn, and the bloodfeud's 
over, at least officially.  Is it really true that TRICORUS 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.  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
