                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail TROCAR!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed for your 
deeds.  It seems the training can make the difference, as TRADERS OF TROCAR is pushed 
out of top team by ASIAN INVASION, who came from 2nd with a 3-2-1 this turn.  And 
let's see, WORZEEL fought QIONG YING and gained 26 points and contributed to TRADERS 
OF TROCAR's 3-2-0.  ALINE TARAS has lost to TONG PAK FU, falling 13 points, while 
helping make TRADERS OF TROCAR a 3-2-0 turn.  We should ask ALBERT about the thrill 
of victory, and what being the new Duelmaster does for a warrior, he's now the one to 
ask.  Can someone confirm a rumor for me?  I hear the top team makes their losing 
fighters do dishes at The Dripping Blade until they win.  Maybe?   
     I tell you, a green quarterstaff lasts longer than a seasoned sapling.  A basher 
friend of mine assures me this is true.   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  KIWI CONNECTION II has lost TROUT to the arena in the sky, but they 
don't seem to be worried.  What do you expect from 7-6-0?  A brave warrior does not 
carry a red shield, he has nothing to cover or hide when the fight is over.  Consider 
well.   
     I like this place, TROCAR, 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 you see my quill in TROCAR again, 
farewell-- Alarond the Scribe

Tian Hu -- Whew!  I was worried I might win, so I surrendered the first chance I got.
Don't want to write a "column." -- Allerdae Chan

Qiong Ying -- Surely such savagery was unnecessary? -- Worzeel, hurting a lot

Tong Pak Fu -- That's one of those kung-fu variants, isn't it?  I considered signing
up for something of the sort, but... nah, it isn't "me." -- Harazim Koreh

Of course I was vicious with Pretty Lerona.  He's totally objectionable. -- Aline
Taras

The Mage's Apprentice is just your basic beginning ass.  But I'm sure he can become a
seriously developed ass if he works at it. -- Levandar
