                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, in TROCAR a quiet thief gets rich, but a quiet spymaster gets poor.  
So bring me ale and harken to my tidbits of news.  The KIWI CONNECTION II guild has 
had a 3-1-1 turn and deserves to be watched in the future.  You never know where this 
kind of thing can lead.  And let's see, ZHUGE LIANG fought LEVANDAR and gained 20 
points and contributed to ASIAN INVASION's 2-3-0.  ALINE TARAS has lost to TONG PAK 
FU, falling 9 points, while helping make TRADERS OF TROCAR a 2-2-1 turn.  Defending 
his title for another turn, ALBERT kept ASIAN INVASION's warrior, QIONG YING, from 
claiming the throne.  Tell me, is nothing sacred?  I have heard from unimpeachable 
sources that The Welcome Wench uses trolls in their stew.  Talk about gristle!   
     The crowd's roar, the smell of iron and leather, mixed with sweat, what more 
could a warrior ask of life?  Well, besides that.   
     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.  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

Whatever tourney that was, late or mislabeled, we salute the participants. -- Jorja
and the Traders of Trocar

Qiong Ying -- Experience does count, and I had more.  Although I'm surprised at how
the skill-learns were distributed. -- Allerdae Chan

Tong Pak Fu -- They've got me packing dog-sleds now, is that insane, or what?  Looks
like I need to work on my teaching, but... on a dog-sled?  The camel would've been
better. -- Worzeel

Zui Bei -- I suppose you realize your manager is homicidally insane?  We realize that
if you're going to challenge, you're going to be limited to people present and
active, but still.  You might've gotten a low-ranked standby, otherwise.  Not that I
mind the win, but I'd hate to kill off some future competition. -- Levandar

Zhuge Liang -- What Levandar said.  Bad style match for you, too.  Good thing we
aren't gung-ho killers here at the Traders. -- Harazim Koreh

And a Cult Member.  I do like carving them up.  It satisfies some deep inner need for
me. -- Aline Taras

From:       The Office of Accurate Census Reporting, Gladiatorial Commission
To:         All Managers

In the interest of preserving our natural resources and preventing managerial writer's 
cramp, census forms will be provided for warriors by request only, effective 
immediately.  Managers may register their warriors' races and/or favorite sayings by 
simply writing them on a separate piece of paper and submitting them to the Commission.  
For any questions, please contact the Gladiatorial Commission.
