                                      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.  And let's see, SERGEANT 5 fought 
ARLENE and gained 11 points and contributed to MEDAL OF HONOR B11's 2-1-0.  THE 
BLUNDERDOG has lost to THE HONEST MERCHANT, falling 5 points, while helping make RED 
DOG GANG a 2-3-0 turn.  And not without some honor, DAISY DAWG 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?   
     He who challenges well, fights well.  He who avoids without cause, shall lose 
for good reasons.  My mama told me that one.   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  A farewell moment, if you please, SLOUGH of UNNAMEABLES has been 
sent to the Dark Arena, and was carried out on his shield.  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 you see my quill in ARADI again, 
farewell-- Alarond the Scribe

One-four, and only the Blunderdog won.  We can't let HIM do The Personal, he has no
conversation.  He just howls.  Refreshingly simple, sometimes, but with the moon
nearing full, not someone we want to stand up in front of a bunch of humans and begin
to comment. -- Daisy Dawg
