                                      SPY REPORT

     Busy, busy, busy, lots of things happening in COLLUSION COVE this turn, and 
let's start with a look at some of the teams.  It seems the training can make the 
difference, as THE BROTHERHOOD is pushed out of top team by RED DOG GANG, who came 
from 3rd with a 3-2-0 this turn.  On their very first turn, TWILIGHT BRIGADE had a 
5-0-1, and with this kind of luck or skill, should do well.  Welcome to COLLUSION 
COVE.  And let's see, DAWNBLADE fought TRUSTWORTHY SCRIBE and gained 16 points and 
contributed to TWILIGHT BRIGADE's 5-0-1.  BB BULLY BOY has lost to VIRGINAL GIGOLO, 
falling 4 points, while helping make RED DOG GANG a 3-2-0 turn.  Due to his absence 
and inability to defend the throne, MANAGER has lost the title of Duelmaster.  And 
all eyes were on LASSIE this turn as she ascended to the throne of Duelmaster.  
COLLUSION COVE has a new victor!  Tell me, is nothing sacred?  I have heard from 
unimpeachable sources that The Blind Cyclops Inn 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.   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  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, COLLUSION COVE, the taverns have old wine, and young serving 
girls.  Who could ask for more?  Always good to rest in COLLUSION COVE, but never 
good to wear out my welcome.  Look for me in future turns.  Until you see my quill in 
COLLUSION COVE again, farewell-- Alarond the Scribe
