                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail VALAMANTIS!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed for 
your deeds.  It seems the training can make the difference, as MITHRAL HALO is pushed 
out of top team by SRETSAMLEUD, who came from 2nd with a 1-4-0 this turn.  And let's 
see, TRAIN WRECK fought BUS and gained 21 points and contributed to THE BEARS' 2-1-0. 
BUS has lost to TRAIN WRECK, falling 11 points, while helping make PUBLIC TRANSIT a 
0-2-0 turn.  Due to his absence and inability to defend the throne, AKLAR has lost 
the title of Duelmaster.  Can someone confirm a rumor for me?  I hear the top team 
makes their losing fighters do dishes at Drake's Lodge until they win.  Maybe?   
     I tell you, a green quarterstaff lasts longer than a seasoned sapling.  A basher 
friend of mine assures me this is true.  I also notice that the MITHRAL HALO stable 
was the most avoided team this turn.  Come on VALAMANTIS, what are you afraid of?  
And avoiding MITHRAL HALO more than any other team we find SRETSAMLEUD.  VALAMANTIS, 
are we going to accept, or respect this sort of thing?   
     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 VALAMANTIS has more dishwashers per capita 
that fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...   
     I like this place, VALAMANTIS, 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 
VALAMANTIS again, farewell-- Alarond the Scribe
