                                      SPY REPORT

     Busy, busy, busy, lots of things happening in ARADI this turn, and let's start 
with a look at some of the teams.  The UNNAMEABLES guild has had a 3-0-0 turn and 
deserves to be watched in the future.  You never know where this kind of thing can 
lead.  And let's see, CHILMAN ELSE fought VIRGINAL GIGOLO and gained 21 points and 
contributed to MIDDLE WAY 25's 1-2-0.  SLIPPERS has lost to POTATO BUG, falling 15 
points, while helping make RED DOG GANG a 1-4-0 turn.  And not without some honor, 
COCO NUTS now claims the title and throne of Duelmaster of ARADI.  By the way, was 
that our Duelmaster that I saw last night, cramped under the table at The Victory 
Tavern?   
     Oriental wise man once say, 'Hiding behind shields prevents proper sun tanning.' 
Inscrutable, but true.   
     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, ARADI, 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 the sun next rises and my pen sets 
to paper-- Alarond the Scribe
