                                      SPY REPORT

     Busy, busy, busy, lots of things happening in TRICORUS this turn, and let's 
start with a look at some of the teams.  It seems the training can make the 
difference, as DARK HORSEMEN is pushed out of top team by VAN DUEL, who came from 4th 
with a 3-0-0 this turn.  VAN DUEL stable has parlayed this turn's 3-0-0 into a 3 
space move up the rankings.  This brings them up to 1st place.  Good work, guys!  And 
let's see, PUMA fought SKALVORD and gained 19 points and contributed to WILDCATS' 
2-3-0.  HARGERD has lost to ATOMIC PUNK, falling 10 points, while helping make DARK 
HORSEMEN a 2-3-0 turn.  The attempts to dethrone the Duelmaster have failed, and DR. 
ORPHEUS remains TRICORUS' top warrior for another turn.  By the way, was that our 
Duelmaster that I saw last night, cramped under the table at The Blue Dolphin Inn?   
     The crowd's roar, the smell of iron and leather, mixed with sweat, what more 
could a warrior ask of life?  Well, besides that.  WILDCATS 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 WILDCATS stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was 
VENTURE BROS..  Anyone surprised?  Well, sports fans, take notice that HARGERD from 
DARK HORSEMEN was TRICORUS' most challenged warrior this turn.   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  Is it really true that TRICORUS has more dishwashers per capita that 
fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...   
     I like this place, TRICORUS, the taverns have old wine, and young serving girls. 
Who could ask for more?  It's been nice chatting with you, until we meet again, keep 
your swords sharp and your hammers heavy.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets 
to paper-- Alarond the Scribe
