                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, friends and fiends, welcome to your friendly neighborhood spyreport.  
I doubt KYR'TERR will ever be the same.  Now keep the taverns open late tonight, for 
there are sorrows to drown for HAZAARDS OF CLONING, whose 0-0-0 this turn dropped 
them by 7 into 11th.  DOGS OF WAR stable has parlayed this turn's 3-2-0 into a 7 
space move up the rankings.  This brings them up to 4th place.  Good work, guys!  And 
let's see, DORINE EAGEL fought MESSY MONGREL and gained 15 points and contributed to 
THE ZOO's 1-3-0.  WITCH has lost to CONVICTED ASSASSIN, falling 7 points, while 
helping make DOGS OF WAR a 3-2-0 turn.  Defending his title for another turn, 
TRYPTOPHAN kept THE ZOO's warrior, BENITO CHATTE, from claiming the throne.  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.  HAZAARDS OF CLONING 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 guess who avoided HAZAARDS OF CLONING stable the most?  Believe 
it or not, it was SUPERIOR FORCES ZC.  Anyone surprised?   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  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.   
     Remember, blood on the purple robe does not change it from a purple robe.  Dare 
to fight bravely.  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

Ah, the pre-tourney warm-up kicks in and fills out the ranks a little.

Albuquerque -- I don't want to go there, thanks anyway. -- Benito Chatte

Danny Heatley -- Just like a politician, attack without warning, utter threats, sling
the injuries around, hog all the skills, and walk away smiling.  Gah. -- Dorine Eagel

I of the Nee Dull -- Thank the gods you're a golem and won't breed! -- Kully Lamm

Rick Monday -- Wow, you weren't kidding about being a "heart breaker"! -- Ghost of
Halda Impola

Barrie -- You're off course by a lot, guy. -- Faizun Gote
