                                      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, JADE fought ARLENE and gained 14 
points and contributed to THIRSTY THUGS' 1-0-0.  ARLENE has lost to JADE, falling 7 
points, while helping make RED DOG GANG a 1-3-0 turn.  And all eyes were on TICK ... 
TOCK this turn as he ascended to the throne of Duelmaster.  ARADI has a new victor!  
By the way, was that our Duelmaster that I saw last night, cramped under the table at 
The Victory Tavern?   
     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...   
     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

What did I ever do to the Ambitious Guard?  Those weren't HIS boots, were they?  I
