                                      SPY REPORT

     Busy, busy, busy, lots of things happening in ARADI this turn, and let's start 
with a look at some of the teams.  It seems the training can make the difference, as 
THE ELITE is pushed out of top team by RED DOG GANG, who came from 4th with a 4-1-0 
this turn.  RED DOG GANG stable has parlayed this turn's 4-1-0 into a 3 space move up 
the rankings.  This brings them up to 1st place.  Good work, guys!  And let's see, 
THE BLUNDERDOG fought VIRGINAL GIGOLO and gained 17 points and contributed to RED DOG 
GANG's 4-1-0.  NUKKELS has lost to CATABOK, falling 8 points, while helping make THE 
ELITE a 0-5-0 turn.  The attempts to dethrone the Duelmaster have failed, and STAR 
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 Blind Cyclops Inn?   
     Oriental wise man once say, 'Hiding behind shields prevents proper sun tanning.' 
Inscrutable, but true.  I also notice that the SHEWISH BANQUET stable was the most 
avoided team this turn.  Come on ARADI, what are you afraid of?  And avoiding SHEWISH 
BANQUET more than any other team we find THE ELITE.  ARADI, are we going to accept, 
or respect this sort of thing?  Well, sports fans, take notice that DUCKETT from RED 
DOG GANG was ARADI's most challenged warrior this turn.  In a brave attempt, ZOLO 
from THE ELITE challenged up 24 points to fight DUCKETT from the RED DOG GANG stable. 
ZOLO perhaps got his just desserts, seeing as he was bested by DUCKETT and ended up 
with 28 recognition points.   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  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?  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

Three-two, and the new Hound says he lost because his name was spelled wrong, his
race was wrong, and he "wasn't ready."  Puh-LEESE!  Dogs are always ready to eat
crackers.  Or anything else except grapefruit (in which they show their good sense).
