                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail DAL SHANG!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed for 
your deeds.  And let's see, JINX fought NOCALLLISTEXEMPTION and gained 20 points and 
contributed to SCRABBLE's 4-0-0.  NOCALLLISTEXEMPTION has lost to JINX, falling 17 
points, while helping make BASH BROS EVANGELIST a 0-2-0 turn.  This turn XYLOID 
challenged KALDAN TEN KARAN in what was DAL SHANG's Title bout.  The attempts to 
dethrone the Duelmaster have failed, and XYLOID remains DAL SHANG's top warrior for 
another turn.  By the way, was that our Duelmaster that I saw last night, cramped 
under the table at The Blazing Unicorn?   
     I tell you, a green quarterstaff lasts longer than a seasoned sapling.  A basher 
friend of mine assures me this is true.  SCRABBLE has cause to stand tall, as they 
were DAL SHANG's most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a team to beat.  
And guess who avoided SCRABBLE stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was BASH BROS 
EVANGELIST.  Anyone surprised?  The most challenged warrior this turn was SAND 
DANCERS' warrior LORAND TEN SORN.  More fighters challenged him than challenged the 
Duelmaster!  In a brave attempt, DRIVING A ROLLS from BASH BROS EVANGELIST challenged 
up 18 points to fight LORAND TEN SORN from the SAND DANCERS stable.  DRIVING A ROLLS 
perhaps got his just desserts, seeing as he lost to LORAND TEN SORN and ended up with 
72 recognition points.   
     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...   
     I like this place, DAL SHANG, the taverns have old wine, and young serving 
girls.  Who could ask for more?  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-- Alarond the Scribe

Assur -- I'm fairly sure that political points are not holding them back.  More
likely it's lack of skills.  If I can persuade the Commission to send me miniovers, I
may confirm that. -- Jorja

Driving a Rolls -- I was RUN DOWN by an unlicensed chariot! -- Kaldan ten Karan

Xyloid -- Think how many more points you could garner by changing your name to
Xyloquid! -- Lorand ten Sorn
