                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, in ARADI a quiet thief gets rich, but a quiet spymaster gets poor.  So 
bring me ale and harken to my tidbits of news.  It seems the training can make the 
difference, as SUPERIOR FORCES 60 is pushed out of top team by RED DOG GANG, who came 
from 2nd with a 4-1-0 this turn.  The RED DOG GANG guild has had a 4-1-0 turn and 
deserves to be watched in the future.  You never know where this kind of thing can 
lead.  And let's see, KOTTER fought THE HONEST MERCHANT and gained 13 points and 
contributed to RED DOG GANG's 4-1-0.  POTATO BUG has lost to CHIQUITA CHIWAWA, 
falling 6 points, while helping make BUGS, SLUGS & THUGS a 0-2-0 turn.  Due to his 
absence and inability to defend the throne, EVENING STAR has lost the title of 
Duelmaster.  And not without some honor, CHIQUITA CHIWAWA now claims the title and 
throne of Duelmaster of ARADI.  Can someone confirm a rumor for me?  I hear the top 
team makes their losing fighters do dishes at The Blind Cyclops Inn until they win.  
Maybe?   
     I tell you, a green quarterstaff lasts longer than a seasoned sapling.  A basher 
friend of mine assures me this is true.   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  Is it really true that ARADI has more dishwashers per capita that fighters? 
Just thought I'd ask...   
     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 you see my quill in ARADI again, 
farewell-- Alarond the Scribe
