                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, in JURINE 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, ARKAN BARNES fought 
M. CHARDINEE and gained 20 points and contributed to MIDDLE WAY 16's 2-3-0.  PADME' 
AMIDALA has lost to ASSUR, falling 5 points, while helping make STAR WARS a 4-1-1 
turn.  The attempts to dethrone the Duelmaster have failed, and HORSE D'OEUVRE 
remains JURINE's top warrior for another turn.  Tell me, is nothing sacred?  I have 
heard from unimpeachable sources that The Welcome Wench uses trolls in their stew.  
Talk about gristle!   
     The crowd's roar, the smell of iron and leather, mixed with sweat, what more 
could a warrior ask of life?  Well, besides that.   
     The Dark Arena is for those who cannot win, not who cannot lose with grace.  
Dignity in life or death is the warrior's creed.  It's a dark day for MIDDLE WAY 16, 
seeing how HORSE D'OEUVRE from SHEWISH BUFFET has not been revenged for killing 
BARTON DAWES.  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?  Well, I'm burning daylight here in JURINE and I've a long 
road ahead of me.  Happy Trails.  Until you see my quill in JURINE again, farewell-- 
Alarond the Scribe

Padme' Amidala -- From the look of you, you haven't beaten a lasagna in your life.
Let's get some meat on those bones! -- Zensu Lasagna

Horse D'Oeuvre -- Somehow, that didn't surprise me.  I suppose I should be proud that
the fight wasn't called "one-sided," but mainly I'm just glad I survived it. -- Vinda
Yarro
P.S.  I have a lot of food allergies, you see.

Graham Cracker -- Crusty little devil, aren't you? -- Deemer Eppt

A Userous Merchant?  Bah. -- Arkan Barnes

Yoda -- You're a Star?  I'd never have guessed.  You look more like something in the
root cellar. -- Chuck Endern
