                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, friends and fiends, welcome to your friendly neighborhood spyreport.  
I doubt AMEN-TEI will ever be the same.  It seems the training can make the 
difference, as STARSHIP TROOPERS is pushed out of top team by NUTS!, who came from 
2nd with a 4-0-0 this turn.  The NUTS! guild has had a 4-0-0 turn and deserves to be 
watched in the future.  You never know where this kind of thing can lead.  And let's 
see, RASCZAK fought POLITE BEGGAR and gained 15 points and contributed to STARSHIP 
TROOPERS' 3-2-0.  FAT DIAMOND has lost to JOHNNY RICO, falling 3 points, while 
helping make BOMBS OVER BAGHDAD a 1-3-0 turn.  Well done, AMEN-TEI, the Duelmaster 
was this turn's most challenged warrior.  Perhaps CASHEW is not as thrilled, being 
challenged 2 times.  SHUCKS challenged for the Duelmastership this turn, attempting 
to dethrone NUTS!'s warrior.  Defending its title for another turn, CASHEW kept 
EXCLAMATION!'s warrior, SHUCKS, from claiming the throne.  By the way, was that our 
Duelmaster that I saw last night, cramped under the table at The Warty Toad?   
     The crowd's roar, the smell of iron and leather, mixed with sweat, what more 
could a warrior ask of life?  Well, besides that.  BOMBS OVER BAGHDAD has cause to 
stand tall, as they were AMEN-TEI's most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is 
a team to beat.  And avoiding BOMBS OVER BAGHDAD more than any other team we find 
STARSHIP TROOPERS.  AMEN-TEI, 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.  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.   
     I like this place, AMEN-TEI, 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 you see my quill in AMEN-TEI again, 
farewell-- Alarond the Scribe
