                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail VALAMANTIS!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed for 
your deeds.  And let's see, VENOM fought HOMELESS and gained 16 points and 
contributed to MOB RULE's 1-0-0.  HOMELESS has lost to VENOM, falling 13 points, 
while helping make PUBLIC NUISANCES a 0-2-0 turn.  The attempts to dethrone the 
Duelmaster have failed, and XI AQUILAE remains VALAMANTIS' top warrior for another 
turn.  By the way, was that our Duelmaster that I saw last night, cramped under the 
table at Drunkard's Guild?   
     The crowd's roar, the smell of iron and leather, mixed with sweat, what more 
could a warrior ask of life?  Well, besides that.   
     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...   
     Thought for the day, a new sword shines bright, but the notched sword sings the 
sweetest.  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
