                                      SPY REPORT

     Busy, busy, busy, lots of things happening in JURINE this turn, and let's start 
with a look at some of the teams.  CLAN GHOST BEARS stable has parlayed this turn's 
5-0-1 into a 3 space move up the rankings.  This brings them up to 2nd place.  Good 
work, guys!  And let's see, HALLY BIRD fought EMBEZZLING SCRIBE and gained 21 points 
and contributed to CLAN GHOST BEARS' 5-0-1.  DECAY has lost to LADY THORNE, falling 
16 points, while helping make AUTUMN SAGA a 0-4-0 turn.  Defending his title for 
another turn, CITIZEN CAPET kept BLADE AND BLOOD's warrior, MIKAI ABADOS, from 
claiming the throne.  By the way, was that our Duelmaster that I saw last night, 
cramped under the table at The Dripping Blade?   
     Oriental wise man once say, 'Hiding behind shields prevents proper sun tanning.' 
Inscrutable, but true.  Well, sports fans, take notice that DECAY from AUTUMN SAGA 
was JURINE's most challenged warrior this turn.   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  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.   
     I like this place, JURINE, 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 JURINE again, 
farewell-- Alarond the Scribe

Fairuza -- It's time for you to hibernate.  Go now, the caves are filling up fast. --
Zoe Alden

Fall Princess -- Ma'am, while your attention was elsewhere, the year slid around to
time for Winter Kings.  Maybe you should sit out until the next fall? -- Cham Dugan

Marcus -- I guess I made a poor career choice, hmm? -- Ghost of Rolequia Sims

Cowl Skirling -- Wow, the sound the wind makes around that cowl you've got is awesome
and really, really unpleasant. -- Takole Urm

Heading South -- An idea with merit. -- Xavan Yole

Hmm, a complete team turnover in the past five turns?  Maybe there's a message in
this.  Maybe it's time to go inactive here for a while.  Hmm. -- Jorja, the Middle
Way
P.S.  Okay, not a complete turnover, we've got one holdout who's been going for
(gasp) ten turns!  Still, five deaths in five turns is enough.
