                                      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.  It seems the training can make the 
difference, as VAN DUEL is pushed out of top team by CHUCK'S PINUPS, who came from 
7th with a 5-0-0 this turn.  CHUCK'S PINUPS stable has parlayed this turn's 5-0-0 
into a 5 space move up the rankings.  This brings them up to 2nd place.  Good work, 
guys!  And let's see, NOG fought WACHICHU and gained 26 points and contributed to THE 
FINAL FRONTIER's 4-0-0.  Due to his absence and inability to defend the throne, ICE 
CREAM MAN has lost the title of Duelmaster.  And all eyes were on NOG this turn as he 
ascended to the throne of Duelmaster.  TRICORUS has a new victor!  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.  I also notice that the WORLD BLADES 13 stable was the most 
avoided team this turn.  Come on TRICORUS, what are you afraid of?  And guess who 
avoided WORLD BLADES 13 stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was WILDCATS.  Anyone 
surprised?  The most challenged warrior this turn was DARK HORSEMEN's warrior ONE EYE 
DARK.  More fighters challenged him than challenged the Duelmaster!  In a fit of 
brilliance or of stupidity (hard to say sometimes), MILEY CYRUS challenged ONE EYE 
DARK today, facing a 26 difference in recognition.  And whaddya know, MILEY CYRUS 
beat ONE EYE DARK, and the fighters of WILDCATS were last seen lifting frothy pints 
of ale in honor of MILEY CYRUS' 24 point gain.  In a brave attempt, TERRI NUNN from 
CHUCK'S PINUPS challenged up 21 points to fight KLARALLA from the DARK HORSEMEN 
stable.  TERRI NUNN perhaps got hers just desserts, seeing as she overcame KLARALLA 
and ended up with 88 recognition points.   
     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 you see my quill in TRICORUS again, farewell-- 
Alarond the Scribe

Van Duel -- Congrats on winning all those free turns!  "Free is good." =) -- Alfredo,
mgr. of Chuck's Pinups

Klaralla et al -- After a brief hiatus... we're back!  In the interest of his
continuing effort to find a "perfect" candidate to use his potion(s) on (me, me,
ME!!), Alfredo is activating every team that has a suitable AB (me, me, ME!!)...
until such time that his quest is completed.  Now my dear... the reason I mention
this directly to you is that YOU CAN HELP! =)  All I ask is that you and the rest of
your team... don't quit on us! ;)  I will be challenging you practically every chance
I get.  Not that I think you're an "easy target:" heck... you trashed me quite easily
when we fought last time.  BUT... you didn't kill me!  You have 32 whole fights
without a kill... and I like those odds.  So my dear... you should be seeing me A LOT
over the turns to come!  Let's just try to make sure it doesn't get too awful bloody.
;> -- Terri Nunn 

Ice Cream Man -- And speaking for myself and my female teammates, we are thrilled by
your dedication, even though it isn't QUITE the season for ice cream. -- Klaralla

Not that ever stopped any of us from indulging in ice cream. -- Morning Dew

Cabo Wabo -- If it's a warm beach, I'd be glad to give it a try. -- One Eye Dark

Panama -- What? -- Triskadel

We salute the tourney participants, with a special nod for Jack Daniels and Molotov,
tourney victors. -- Jorja and the Dark Horsemen

Three-two, and Garsteil drew a standby.  I have to wonder about that, how he managed
it, I mean.  Tricorus is, after all, a hotbed of petty crime. -- Klaralla
P.S.  And not-petty crime, but that is not at issue here.

Ice Cream Man -- At least it was a SLIM victory.  A fattening one would be going too
far. -- Klaralla

Drop Dead Legs -- It's a problem when your opponent is female, isn't it? -- Morning
Dew

Panama -- That wink wasn't, ah, inuendo.  It was a speck of something in my eye. --
One Eye Dark

Miley Cyrus -- You're a cat?  It doesn't show. -- Triskadel

And a Cult Member.  Whew. -- Garsteil
P.S.  No, I did NOT bribe anyone for this match.  I'm just naturally lucky some days.
