                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, friends and fiends, welcome to your friendly neighborhood spyreport.  
I doubt TROCAR will ever be the same.  It seems the training can make the difference, 
as STREET-SOLDIERS is pushed out of top team by TRADERS OF TROCAR, who came from 2nd 
with a 4-1-0 this turn.  ALLERDAE CHAN has lost to GURTARGAN MONK, falling 10 points, 
while helping make TRADERS OF TROCAR a 4-1-0 turn.  Defending his title for another 
turn, VARDIN ABEQ kept TROCAR's warrior, WARRIOR-MAGE, from claiming the throne.  Can 
someone confirm a rumor for me?  I hear the top team makes their losing fighters do 
dishes at The Swinging Aardvark until they win.  Maybe?   
     He who challenges well, fights well.  He who avoids without cause, shall lose 
for good reasons.  My mama told me that one.  FELIX of WARRIORS had better have a 
good reason for challenging down 10 points in a challenge which he was slain.  I 
thought FELIX showed great skill and promise when he was killed by JOKER.  All right, 
so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  A brave warrior does not carry a red shield, he has nothing to cover or 
hide when the fight is over.  Consider well.   
     Thought for the day, a new sword shines bright, but the notched sword sings the 
sweetest.  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
