                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, friends and fiends, welcome to your friendly neighborhood spyreport.  
I doubt ARADI will ever be the same.  And let's see, ERIC GAGN'EH fought HOPE AND 
CHANGE and gained 17 points and contributed to INGRATE WHITE NORTH's 5-0-1.  DIRTY 
DAWG has lost to 1% BURGER, falling 9 points, while helping make RED DOG GANG a 0-4-0 
turn.  Defending his title for another turn, TICK ... TOCK kept VILLAINOUS LEGION's 
warrior, HANS GRUBER, from claiming the throne.  By the way, was that our Duelmaster 
that I saw last night, cramped under the table at The Blind Cyclops Inn?   
     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.  We'd like to remind certain teams not to rob the graves of their enemies.  
You know who you are; and it's considered rude.   
     Thought for the day, a new sword shines bright, but the notched sword sings the 
sweetest.  Well, I'm burning daylight here in ARADI and I've a long road ahead of me. 
Happy Trails.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets to paper-- Alarond the Scribe

Our congratulations to Q Mark. -- Spot and the Red Dog Gang

I know you humans think that we Dogs howl at the moon, and some of you scorn us for
that, because the moon can't answer, and we couldn't get it no matter how hard we
tried.  You misunderstand.  The moon is just the, ah, nominal target.  We howl to
contact each other, actually.  To set up a conversation.  And when there's no
response, well, we get tired of it after a while.  Like now and here. -- Spot
