                                      SPY REPORT

     Busy, busy, busy, lots of things happening in VALAMANTIS this turn, and let's 
start with a look at some of the teams.  And let's see, INFERNO fought PERSISTENT 
BEGGAR and gained 16 points and contributed to DISASTERS' 2-1-1.  JERANS LA'ROC has 
lost to SAND STORM, falling 11 points, while helping make MIDDLE WAY 10 a 2-3-0 turn. 
Defending his title for another turn, SALTY DOG kept VALAMANTIS' warrior, M. 
CHARDINEE, from claiming the throne.  By the way, was that our Duelmaster that I saw 
last night, cramped under the table at Drunkard's Guild?   
     He who challenges well, fights well.  He who avoids without cause, shall lose 
for good reasons.  My mama told me that one.  The most challenged warrior this turn 
was MIDDLE WAY 10's warrior JERANS LA'ROC.  More fighters challenged him than 
challenged the Duelmaster!   
     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.   
     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 the sun next rises and 
my pen sets to paper-- Alarond the Scribe

Sandstorm -- Preparation may not be all, but it's a lot, and I was prepared for you.
Actually, I was prepared for quite a different problem, but since the preparations
are much the same, it worked okay. -- Jearans La'roc

Sad to see what enslavement by the Fratsfans can do to an elf. -- Ferris Hale

Oho!  The Captured Orc is getting restive. -- Hobban Jepp

Let Ferris pity the Fratsfa Slave if he wants, I just have a job to do here, and
besides, *I* am not an elf, so there. -- Fargo Hail

And a Mordant Deserter to top off the day.  A piffling sort. -- JimEmma Loca

Our congratulations to Salty Dog. -- Jorja and the Middle Way
