                                      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, GHOUL fought CULT MEMBER and 
gained 12 points and contributed to ZOMBIE SQUAD's 2-2-0.  HENDRED INGLE has lost to 
WALKER, falling 5 points, while helping make MIDDLE WAY 10 a 2-3-0 turn.  Defending 
his title for another turn, MOOSEHEAD kept MIDDLE WAY 10's warrior, KOLBERT MOON, 
from claiming the throne.  Tell me, is nothing sacred?  I have heard from 
unimpeachable sources that The Aradi Alyia 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.   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  Is it really true that VALAMANTIS has more dishwashers per capita that 
fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...   
     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 the sun next rises and my pen sets to paper-- 
Alarond the Scribe
