                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, in DAL SHANG 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 TIL DEATH DO US PART is pushed out of top team by CASTAWAYS, who came 
from 3rd with a 3-2-0 this turn.  And let's see, *HAPPY PHANTOM* fought ICECLAW and 
gained 20 points and contributed to LITTLE EARTHQUAKES' 2-0-0.  ICECLAW has lost to 
*HAPPY PHANTOM*, falling 15 points, while helping make CASTAWAYS a 3-2-0 turn.  We 
should ask LUISENYA about the thrill of victory, and what being the new Duelmaster 
does for a warrior, he's now the one to ask.  By the way, was that our Duelmaster 
that I saw last night, cramped under the table at The Blazing Unicorn?   
     Oriental wise man once say, 'Hiding behind shields prevents proper sun tanning.' 
Inscrutable, but true.   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  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.  Always good to rest in DAL SHANG, but never good to wear out my welcome.  
Look for me in future turns.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets to paper-- 
Alarond the Scribe

Fsstis Kacieu -- I suspect that a really strict editor wouldn't allow your name to be
printed, it's bound to be a bad word.  Either that, or a joke--it sounds like someone
being sick, you know?  Spit-and-sneeze.  Uh... you don't really look like a dwarf.
Hairy, yes, but... do dwarves have tails? -- Luisenya

Flitchak -- I think that next time we meet, I'm going to throw a fish at you. --
Chaego Sarildan
P.S.  It just seems like the thing to do.

Standbys, they say we've gotta love 'em, but I don't see why. -- Sorrelishe

Iceclaw -- I was cold already, dammit. -- Loeker Smith

Razia -- Ah, no tail, no whiskers, good to see a human face.  Let me buy dinner for
you--and eat mine in your presence at the same time, of course. -- Garno ten Korl
P.S.  It may be that I haven't seen anything yet, but I am eager to.  Let us find a
private place and embark on it!

Chiana -- With such an incentive, how can I fail? -- Chaego

Our congratulations to what's-his-name, the duelmaster who's graduating. -- Jorja and
the Sand Dancers
