                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail JURINE!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed for your 
deeds.  It seems the training can make the difference, as MIDDLE WAY 16 is pushed out 
of top team by DOCTORS, who came from 3rd with a 4-1-0 this turn.  And let's see, 
COLIN BAKER fought AMBITIOUS GUARD and gained 14 points and contributed to DOCTORS' 
4-1-0.  VONNER WESS has lost to COUNTER OFFER, falling 11 points, while helping make 
MIDDLE WAY 16 a 1-4-0 turn.  Due to his absence and inability to defend the throne, 
DRAGON HARVEST has lost the title of Duelmaster.  And all eyes were on CHAM DUGAN 
this turn as he ascended to the throne of Duelmaster.  JURINE has a new victor!  Can 
someone confirm a rumor for me?  I hear the top team makes their losing fighters do 
dishes at The Welcome Wench until they win.  Maybe?   
     Oriental wise man once say, 'Hiding behind shields prevents proper sun tanning.' 
Inscrutable, but true.  I also notice that the BLACK PEARL stable was the most 
avoided team this turn.  Come on JURINE, what are you afraid of?  And guess who 
avoided BLACK PEARL stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was VIKING LINGO.  Anyone 
surprised?   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  Is it really true that JURINE has more dishwashers per capita that 
fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...   
     Remember, blood on the purple robe does not change it from a purple robe.  Dare 
to fight bravely.  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

Counter Offer -- But what if I don't want a counter? -- Wallis Yent, being willfully
obtuse

Wallis -- So, counter the offer with a captured orc.  I'll goe halfs with you on it.
