                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, in VALAMANTIS 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, MONOLITH II 
fought IMROM LLEWS and gained 16 points and contributed to HILLTOP GURUS' 3-1-0.  
IMROM LLEWS has lost to MONOLITH II, falling 9 points, while helping make MIDDLE WAY 
10 a 1-2-0 turn.  Due to his absence and inability to defend the throne, THE PLAGUE 
has lost the title of Duelmaster.  And all eyes were on WHITE WIZARD this turn as he 
ascended to the throne of Duelmaster.  VALAMANTIS has a new victor!  Tell me, is 
nothing sacred?  I have heard from unimpeachable sources that Drake's Lodge uses 
trolls in their stew.  Talk about gristle!   
     He who challenges well, fights well.  He who avoids without cause, shall lose 
for good reasons.  My mama told me that one.  DISASTERS has cause to stand tall, as 
they were VALAMANTIS' most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a team to 
beat.  And avoiding DISASTERS more than any other team we find HILLTOP GURUS.  
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?  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.   
     Remember, blood on the purple robe does not change it from a purple robe.  Dare 
to fight bravely.  Well, I'm burning daylight here in VALAMANTIS and I've a long road 
ahead of me.  Happy Trails.  Until you see my quill in VALAMANTIS again, farewell-- 
Alarond the Scribe

Training Buddha -- I dunno if you're training to be a buddha, or your trying to train
ME to be a buddha, but I don't think it's working.  Something about the gladiatorial
life appears to be in conflict with your basic goal.  Or it might be because of the
missing standbys, of course. -- Giflmet Ivers

There's no doubt about the Dangerous Criminal being genuine.  Hmm, and he's Fratsfan,
do you suppose this is the Fratsfa Slave, escaped and turned to a life of crime?
Makes more sense than him having been sucked through some weird dimensional doorway,
if you ask me. -- Imrom Llews

Stanly Millgram -- Why are you out of control?  Dammit, man, get a grip! -- Gilbern
Juss

William James -- Dammit, I KNEW shouldn't have followed Giflmet out to the ruins that
night, OR gone anywhere NEAR that door.  This is what comes of it.  Dead on the
sands.  It's a plot. -- Ghost of Lark Norry
P.S.  But at least it isn't MY plot any longer.
