                                      SPY REPORT

     Busy, busy, busy, lots of things happening in DAL SHANG this turn, and let's 
start with a look at some of the teams.  And let's see, NOCALLLISTEXEMPTION fought 
KORKA THE HAIRY and gained 10 points and contributed to BASH BROS EVANGELIST's 1-1-0. 
GORBAN TEN SKORA has lost to CAUSEY, falling 4 points, while helping make SAND 
DANCERS a 4-1-0 turn.  The attempts to dethrone the Duelmaster have failed, and THE 
BLUE PILL remains DAL SHANG's top warrior for another turn.  Tell me, is nothing 
sacred?  I have heard from unimpeachable sources that The Blazing Unicorn uses trolls 
in their stew.  Talk about gristle!   
     Oriental wise man once say, 'Hiding behind shields prevents proper sun tanning.' 
Inscrutable, but true.  I also notice that the SAND DANCERS stable was the most 
avoided team this turn.  Come on DAL SHANG, what are you afraid of?  And avoiding 
SAND DANCERS more than any other team we find SCRABBLE.  DAL SHANG, are we going to 
accept, or respect this sort of thing?  Well, sports fans, take notice that NORVAN 
TEN KOGAN from SAND DANCERS was DAL SHANG's most challenged warrior this turn.   
     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 DAL SHANG 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 DAL SHANG and I've a long road 
ahead of me.  Happy Trails.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets to paper--

Norvan Ten Kogan -- Did you not get the script I sent over to you?  The fight was
supposed to go:
     You look all flashy on the sands, put on a good show for the crowd, then
collapse from exhaustion after 2-5 minutes.  Don't worry, I'll give you another
chance. -- Driving a Rolls

Assur -- This is a lousy climate for anyone except ducks.  Water everywhere, falling
out of the sky, lying around on the ground, coming through the roof... everywhere! --
