                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, in ILLIS a quiet thief gets rich, but a quiet spymaster gets poor.  So 
bring me ale and harken to my tidbits of news.  Now keep the taverns open late 
tonight, for there are sorrows to drown for YOUNG GUNS, whose 1-2-0 this turn dropped 
them by 4 into 6th.  And let's see, FEARLESS INVENTORY fought NAZARETH and gained 33 
points and contributed to BASHAHOLICS ANON's 2-3-0.  BOA has lost to IRISH FLAG, 
falling 17 points, while helping make SERPENTS HOLD a 0-1-0 turn.  We should ask LONG 
ISLAND about the thrill of victory, and what being the new Duelmaster does for a 
warrior, it's now the one to ask.  By the way, was that our Duelmaster that I saw 
last night, cramped under the table at The Welcome Wench?   
     The crowd's roar, the smell of iron and leather, mixed with sweat, what more 
could a warrior ask of life?  Well, besides that.  ISLANDERS has cause to stand tall, 
as they were ILLIS' most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a team to beat. 
And avoiding ISLANDERS more than any other team we find BEATRICE.  ILLIS, are we 
going to accept, or respect this sort of thing?  Well, sports fans, take notice that 
BILLY THE KID from YOUNG GUNS was ILLIS' most challenged warrior this turn.   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  Is it really true that ILLIS has more dishwashers per capita that fighters? 
Just thought I'd ask...   
     Thought for the day, a new sword shines bright, but the notched sword sings the 
sweetest.  Always good to rest in ILLIS, but never good to wear out my welcome.  Look 
for me in future turns.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets to paper-- Alarond 
the Scribe

Heath Bar was a 9-12-11-21-10-10-11 ST, ambi, lucky in endurance and Init.  He 
overachieved with an Apprentices runner-up and it was all downhill since.  I thought 
he might be able to pull off a number of Dark Arena kills, but Stone Golem stopped him 
before he had even gotten started. -- One Armed Bandit, mgr of Shewish Munchies
