                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail TRICORUS!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed for your 
deeds.  It seems the training can make the difference, as QUESTIONS is pushed out of 
top team by VENTURE BROS., who came from 2nd with a 4-0-0 this turn.  And let's see, 
QUIZBOY fought I DRANK WHAT? and gained 17 points and contributed to VENTURE BROS.'s 
4-0-0.  I DRANK WHAT? has lost to QUIZBOY, falling 9 points, while helping make 
QUESTIONS a 3-2-0 turn.  And all eyes were on TACK TACK this turn as it ascended to 
the throne of Duelmaster.  TRICORUS has a new victor!  By the way, was that our 
Duelmaster that I saw last night, cramped under the table at The Silver Chalice?   
     I tell you, a green quarterstaff lasts longer than a seasoned sapling.  A basher 
friend of mine assures me this is true.   
     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.  Always good to rest in TRICORUS, but never good to wear out my welcome.  
Look for me in future turns.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets to paper-- 
Alarond the Scribe

Answer of the week:  It's in the mail.  Really!

Who... cares, now?  Fare well, and I hope never to see you again. -- Jubhal

Why -- Because... I overslept?  Over-indulged the night before, too.  Oogh. --
Marganad

What -- If you can't figure that out, I'm not going to tell you. -- Galdor O'Hare

Brock -- Ah... a case of something ventured, something gained, I guess?  Though not
for me.  Well, one skill, but that hardly seems to count. -- Windsong, spoiled by
better learning opportunities

Sgt. Hatred -- Has anyone mentioned that you really aren't a nice man?  And yet, I'm
sure you could do "nice" if you put your mind to it. -- Before Sunrise
