                                      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.  It seems the training can 
make the difference, as HORSE LAKERS is pushed out of top team by MIDDLE WAY 10, who 
came from 4th with a 5-0-0 this turn.  MIDDLE WAY 10 stable has parlayed this turn's 
5-0-0 into a 3 space move up the rankings.  This brings them up to 1st place.  Good 
work, guys!  And let's see, NEEVAN POVAR fought AMBITIOUS GUARD and gained 15 points 
and contributed to MIDDLE WAY 10's 5-0-0.  TREMOR has lost to GILFMET IVERS, falling 
4 points, while helping make DISASTERS a 1-3-0 turn.  The attempts to dethrone the 
Duelmaster have failed, and INFERNO remains VALAMANTIS' 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 Wasteland Bar until they win.  Maybe?   
     The crowd's roar, the smell of iron and leather, mixed with sweat, what more 
could a warrior ask of life?  Well, besides that.  I also notice that the MIDDLE WAY 
10 stable was the most avoided team this turn.  Come on VALAMANTIS, what are you 
afraid of?  And avoiding MIDDLE WAY 10 more than any other team we find DISASTERS.  
VALAMANTIS, are we going to accept, or respect this sort of thing?   
     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.   
     Thought for the day, a new sword shines bright, but the notched sword sings the 
sweetest.  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

Inferno -- Just what I needed, a fight with the incoming duelmaster.  Oh, well, good
fight and all that.  Glad to have been of assistance. -- Gilfmet Ivers

A Fratsfa Slave?  Bah. -- Gilbern Juss

losing. -- Neevan Povar

The Ambitious Guards keep trying, I'll say that for 'em. -- Imrom Llews

If that is a true Osksi Noble, I say we stroll over and conquer the city some
afternoon when we're bored, because it'll be EASY. -- Kolbert Moon
