                                      SPY REPORT

     Busy, busy, busy, lots of things happening in KYR'TERR this turn, and let's 
start with a look at some of the teams.  SECOND CHANCES stable has parlayed this 
turn's 1-0-0 into a 3 space move up the rankings.  This brings them up to 6th place.  
Good work, guys!  And let's see, MAT CAUTHON fought DAGGER and gained 20 points and 
contributed to AL-GHAZIS' 3-1-1.  DAGGER has lost to MAT CAUTHON, falling 18 points, 
while helping make NIGHTHAWKS a 2-3-0 turn.  And all eyes were on SHAVED MONKEY this 
turn as he ascended to the throne of Duelmaster.  KYR'TERR has a new victor!  Tell 
me, is nothing sacred?  I have heard from unimpeachable sources that The Swinging 
Aardvark uses trolls in their stew.  Talk about gristle!   
     The crowd's roar, the smell of iron and leather, mixed with sweat, what more 
could a warrior ask of life?  Well, besides that.  NIGHTHAWKS has cause to stand 
tall, as they were KYR'TERR's most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a 
team to beat.  And avoiding NIGHTHAWKS more than any other team we find SECOND 
CHANCES.  KYR'TERR, are we going to accept, or respect this sort of thing?   
     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.  Well, I'm burning daylight here in KYR'TERR and I've a long road ahead of 
me.  Happy Trails.  Until you see my quill in KYR'TERR again, farewell-- Alarond the 
Scribe

30 December 2005
Just a reminder to all you online type people.  It is much appreciated if you send
your personals in PLAIN TEXT, rather than HTML or formatted text.  HAL, in his
infinite wisdom, doesn't DO formatting, which means having to unsnarl your personal
ads from bunches of extraneous...stuff.  So, if your e-mailer has a plain text
option, let it be your friend. -- Ed.
P.S.  Sometimes it's the formatted text which makes ads go astray.  Not often, but
sometimes.
