                                      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.  It seems the training can make the 
difference, as SHEWISH BUFFET is pushed out of top team by MIDDLE WAY 16, who came 
from 3rd with a 4-1-0 this turn.  And let's see, ZENSU LASAGNA fought YODA and gained 
24 points and contributed to SHEWISH BUFFET's 1-1-0.  YODA has lost to ZENSU LASAGNA, 
falling 14 points, while helping make STAR WARS a 3-2-0 turn.  The attempts to 
dethrone the Duelmaster have failed, and ARKAN BARNES remains JURINE's top warrior 
for another turn.  Can someone confirm a rumor for me?  I hear the top team makes 
their losing fighters do dishes at The Dripping Blade until they win.  Maybe?   
     He who challenges well, fights well.  He who avoids without cause, shall lose 
for good reasons.  My mama told me that one.   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  A brave warrior does not carry a red shield, he has nothing to cover or 
hide when the fight is over.  Consider well.   
     Remember, blood on the purple robe does not change it from a purple robe.  Dare 
to fight bravely.  Always good to rest in JURINE, but never good to wear out my 
welcome.  Look for me in future turns.  Until you see my quill in JURINE again, 
farewell-- Alarond the Scribe

I'm not writing a Duelmaster's Column, okay?  It hardly seems like I deserve it,
since I only got the title because Horse D'Oeuvre went inactive.  For the tourney, I
guess.  And Darth Vadar wasn't much of challenge. -- Arkan Barnes

Girl Scout Cookies are good, if they're fresh. -- Vinda Yarro

Yoda has big ears. -- Chuck Endern

Zensu Lasagna -- What is IN that?  I mean, I thought ricotta was MILD. -- Fifine
