                                      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 RED DOG GANG is pushed out of top team by UNNAMEABLES, who came from 
2nd with a 2-2-0 this turn.  And let's see, NIGHT TRUST OXSIDE fought DAISY DAWG and 
gained 17 points and contributed to UNNAMEABLES' 2-2-0.  BIG DOG has lost to VETERAN 
MERCENARY, falling 17 points, while helping make RED DOG GANG a 3-2-0 turn.  The 
attempts to dethrone the Duelmaster have failed, and CHOPPED RABBIT remains ARADI's 
top warrior for another turn.  By the way, was that our Duelmaster that I saw last 
night, cramped under the table at The Victory Tavern?   
     The crowd's roar, the smell of iron and leather, mixed with sweat, what more 
could a warrior ask of life?  Well, besides that.   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  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?  Always good to rest in ARADI, but never good to wear out my 
welcome.  Look for me in future turns.  Until you see my quill in ARADI again, 
farewell-- Alarond the Scribe

Ack!  Awgh!  Wauk!  What did they put IN that Chopped Rabbit?  I've never tasted a
rabbit like that, and I was SOOO sick for two days after....  Ack! -- Big Dog

And for the rest, well, it was actually an oh-fer turn, even though two of the
opponents were standbys.  Big Dog's illness unnerved us all. -- the rest of the Red
