                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, in ROCANIS a quiet thief gets rich, but a quiet spymaster gets poor.  
So bring me ale and harken to my tidbits of news.  On their very first turn, 
PUNCH-OUT! had a 4-1-2, and with this kind of luck or skill, should do well.  Welcome 
to ROCANIS.  And let's see, BITTER VETCH fought ROCANI TURNCOAT and gained 16 points 
and contributed to BAD APPLES' 2-3-0.  LARGE DOG has lost to NARROW FOAL, falling 9 
points, while helping make BAD APPLES a 2-3-0 turn.  The attempts to dethrone the 
Duelmaster have failed, and JAVELINO remains ROCANIS' top warrior for another turn.  
By the way, was that our Duelmaster that I saw last night, cramped under the table at 
The Grub & Rub Bar and Bistro?   
     Oriental wise man once say, 'Hiding behind shields prevents proper sun tanning.' 
Inscrutable, but true.   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  Is it really true that ROCANIS has more dishwashers per capita that 
fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...   
     Remember, blood on the purple robe does not change it from a purple robe.  Dare 
to fight bravely.  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

Javelino -- Oh, yeah?  I bet you WERE laughing, and (sigh) with cause.  That was very
poorly done of me.  Are you going to write a column? -- Deadfall

Priest of Mytori -- Foul fiend!  Take that!  Helpless without your dirty magic,
aren't you?  Ha!  Take some MORE of that!  You wimp!  You bloody-handed wretch!  I
hope Mytori gets disgusted with you and eats your liver!  Take that again! --
Applemint, perhaps a trifle over-excited

This is Hedgehog, hear her roar...and what she's roaring is "I hurt!"  A prickly
nature will not protect against a sword in someone else's hand. -- Bitter Vetch

Ambitious Guard -- You think because you're tall and well-set up, because you look
good in armor, you should be more than a guard?  Wrong!  Those characteristics suite
you to being a guard, but if you want more, you have to use your brains.  If you have
any, which is debatable. -- Candy Apple

Rirorni Archer -- But...you're Convincian?  How strange.  Hmm.  A Convincian who is
studying the Rirorni way of horse archery?  Needing a little extra money to live on
while you study?  Bad choice of day job! -- Large Dog
