                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail DAL SHANG!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed for 
your deeds.  It seems the training can make the difference, as TOLBIN'S GEMS is 
pushed out of top team by MEDAL OF HONOR C11, who came from 2nd with a 2-3-0 this 
turn.  Now keep the taverns open late tonight, for there are sorrows to drown for 
TOLBIN'S GEMS, whose 0-0-0 this turn dropped them by 4 into 5th.  POSSE stable has 
parlayed this turn's 3-1-1 into a 4 space move up the rankings.  This brings them up 
to 2nd place.  Good work, guys!  And let's see, GUNSLINGER fought SERGEANT 2 and 
gained 19 points and contributed to POSSE's 3-1-1.  SERGEANT 2 has lost to 
GUNSLINGER, falling 16 points, while helping make MEDAL OF HONOR C11 a 2-3-0 turn.  
Defending his title for another turn, SERGEANT 7 kept SAND DANCERS' warrior, GORBAN 
TEN SKORA, from claiming the throne.  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.   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  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.   
     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

Damn, one-four.  Not going to make Jorja happy.  But maybe she won't notice.  And it
isn't like we got any standbys to fight, which would've helped.  After all, SOMEBODY
has to keep the standbys in their places!  Why not us?  We're the ones who are always
here.  We're the ones who have to LISTEN to them all the time in the taverns.
Anybody would want to beat them up. -- Gorban ten Skora
