                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, friends and fiends, welcome to your friendly neighborhood spyreport.  
I doubt FRATSFA will ever be the same.  CAUSTIC CROCUS challenged for the 
Duelmastership this turn, attempting to dethrone DRAGONS GUARD II's warrior.  
Defending its title for another turn, CONFLICT kept FLOWER GIRLS' warrior, CAUSTIC 
CROCUS, from claiming the throne.  By the way, was that our Duelmaster that I saw 
last night, cramped under the table at The Victory Tavern?   
     Oriental wise man once say, 'Hiding behind shields prevents proper sun tanning.' 
Inscrutable, but true.  WAH CHING has cause to stand tall, as they were FRATSFA's 
most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a team to beat.  And guess who 
avoided WAH CHING stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was FLOWER GIRLS.  Anyone 
surprised?  The most challenged warrior this turn was WAH CHING's warrior HU YAN 
ZHUO.  More fighters challenged him than challenged the Duelmaster!  In a brave 
attempt, VELVET ROSE from JADE WARRIORS challenged up 22 points to fight HU YAN ZHUO 
from the WAH CHING stable.  VELVET ROSE perhaps got hers just desserts, seeing as she 
beat HU YAN ZHUO and ended up with 87 recognition points.   
     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.   
     I like this place, FRATSFA, the taverns have old wine, and young serving girls.  
Who could ask for more?  Well, I'm burning daylight here in FRATSFA and I've a long 
road ahead of me.  Happy Trails.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets to paper-- 
Alarond the Scribe

Liam -- You think you can just waltz in here after all this time and things are
'normal"?  Humpf!  Well, you and your team will surely be great customers for The
Flower Shoppe, so maybe....  Welcome, Hon.  You should get a Grave Dancer diplo in
DM50 with some info on it that may be useful, or may amuse you.  As to the manager in
DM50--it is certainly old backwoods hillbilly, Smitty.  Sometimes Consortium managers
take time off and other managers fill in.  Perhaps that happened?  (Or, what probably
happened is the Master Boss just got confused.  I didn't say that!)  I do know that
the Life Impacts team started in DM81 and was transferred to 50.  Good luck.  And see
you soon at TheFlower Shoppe. -- Lady Fern

     Actually, it was probably me that got confused when making out the regional
     news.  I'd be glad to stop doing that.

Conflict -- How mean of you and how sad that I lost the Duelmaster throne.  One more
and I would have graduated.  Now... I guess I will just labor away making a fortune
at The Flower Shoppe. -- Gloating Gardenia (hardly gloating at all)

Noble Assassin -- How noble of you, Studmuffin!  You launched me off to Lord
Protectorship and retirement on The Isle.  Once you recover from your wounds and the
loss, come on over to The Flower Shop for a freebie.  I will let you win.  XOXO --
Cautious Crocus

All -- If you are interested, prior to that Noble Assassin fight, Crocus looked like
this:  12(+2)-21(+2)-12-11(+1)-20(+3)-9-9(+2).  She may have acquired that last parry
for an adex, but that is it.  I will miss her. -- Lady Fern

Dargon -- You must have wanted me badly.  I love that in a man.  Did you have a good
time having your way with me? (wink) -- Hateful Hasta

Shiftyeyed Volunteer -- Hah!  Those eyes did not shift one bit!  They were
concentrated on my significant headlights the whole time!  You were easy!  Come on
over to The Flower Shoppe later and see the lights uncovered.  You will be glad you
did. -- Haughty Holly

I handled Khalhums Dwarf?  Who would have thought it?  I think he liked it! --
Petulant Pansy (thrilled with her climactic win)

All -- "Enjoy Life; there is plenty of time to be dead." (by Hans Christian Anderson)
-- Lady Fern (not at all an ugly duckling)

Ursila Rilvar -- That is the problem with moving up the ranks too fast.  Eventually,
you will find someone that can give you the old smack down. -- Hidden (revealed)

Wah Ching -- More like cha-ching.  Thanks for the skills! -- Unreadable and Graffiti

Our congratulations to Caustic Crocus. -- Jorja and those who walk the Middle Way

Hidden -- When I can't see the signs, I just drive straight ahead.  You don't want to
get hit, don't get in front of me, okay? -- Ursila Rilvar, who experienced deeply
perverse road signage in the Four Corners

Hu Yan Zhuo -- Oh, darn.  You guys are really anti-orc, aren't you?  Jealous of our
good figures, I guess. -- Salina Rees

Leia -- I wasn't going to hurt your dragon!  Why would I do a thing like that? --
Ellis Tate
