                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, friends and fiends, welcome to your friendly neighborhood spyreport.  
I doubt TRICORUS will ever be the same.  It seems the training can make the 
difference, as DARK HORSEMEN is pushed out of top team by QUESTIONS, who came from 
2nd with a 5-0-0 this turn.  And let's see, BROCK fought WINDSONG and gained 23 
points and contributed to VENTURE BROS.'s 2-2-0.  WINDSONG has lost to BROCK, falling 
19 points, while helping make DARK HORSEMEN a 0-5-0 turn.  Defending his title for 
another turn, WHO kept DARK HORSEMEN's warrior, JUBHAL, 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.  I also notice that the DARK HORSEMEN stable was the most 
avoided team this turn.  Come on TRICORUS, what are you afraid of?  And avoiding DARK 
HORSEMEN more than any other team we find VENTURE BROS..  TRICORUS, are we going to 
accept, or respect this sort of thing?   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  It's a dark day for VENTURE BROS., seeing how TACK TACK from 
SERPENTS HOLD 2 has not been revenged for killing RUSTY.  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.  It's been nice chatting with you, until we meet again, keep your 
swords sharp and your hammers heavy.  Until you see my quill in TRICORUS again, 
farewell-- Alarond the Scribe

Answer of the week:  Not till you're sixty-six.

We salute the tourney participants. -- Jorja and the Dark Horsemen

Who -- If the only thing that would stop us from fighting every two weeks was a
graduation, I'm glad I'm the one who gets to graduate. -- Jubhal
P.S.  And glad it didn't turn out to be a death that stepped between us, because I'd
probably have gotten to do that, too.  And I'll pass on that for a while yet.

Likewise for the Fratsfa Slave. -- Windsong
