                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, friends and fiends, welcome to your friendly neighborhood spyreport.  
I doubt TRICORUS will ever be the same.  And let's see, SKALVORD fought CONVICTED 
ASSASSIN and gained 9 points and contributed to DARK HORSEMEN's 3-2-0.  MOONDARK has 
lost to KUNG FU MASTER, falling 12 points, while helping make DARK HORSEMEN a 3-2-0 
turn.  Due to its absence and inability to defend the throne, HELPER has lost the 
title of Duelmaster.  And not without some honor, SKALVORD now claims the title and 
throne of Duelmaster of TRICORUS.  Tell me, is nothing sacred?  I have heard from 
unimpeachable sources that The Silver Chalice uses trolls in their stew.  Talk about 
gristle!   
     I tell you, a green quarterstaff lasts longer than a seasoned sapling.  A basher 
friend of mine assures me this is 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 
guess who avoided DARK HORSEMEN stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was AMAZON 
ELITE.  Anyone surprised?   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  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.   
     Remember, blood on the purple robe does not change it from a purple robe.  Dare 
to fight bravely.  Always good to rest in TRICORUS, but never good to wear out my 
welcome.  Look for me in future turns.  Until you see my quill in TRICORUS again, 
farewell-- Alarond the Scribe
