                                      SPY REPORT

     Busy, busy, busy, lots of things happening in ERINIKA this turn, and let's start 
with a look at some of the teams.  Now keep the taverns open late tonight, for there 
are sorrows to drown for SUE'S BIG BOYS, whose 0-2-0 this turn dropped them by 7 into 
17th.  POOR COMBINATIONS stable has parlayed this turn's 1-0-0 into a 6 space move up 
the rankings.  This brings them up to 10th place.  Good work, guys!  The MONGOL HORDE 
guild has had a 3-0-0 turn and deserves to be watched in the future.  You never know 
where this kind of thing can lead.  And let's see, SUN RAY fought VETERAN MERCENARY 
and gained 15 points and contributed to SUPER STARS' 3-1-0.  SUN TZU has lost to 
CAPTURED ORC, falling 10 points, while helping make SUPER STARS a 3-1-0 turn.  Well 
done, ERINIKA, the Duelmaster was this turn's most challenged warrior.  Perhaps DEATH 
SUCKS is not as thrilled, being challenged 2 times.  Defending his title for another 
turn, DEATH SUCKS kept SUE'S BIG BOYS' warrior, KENNY CHESNEY, from claiming the 
throne.  Can someone confirm a rumor for me?  I hear the top team makes their losing 
fighters do dishes at The Warty Toad until they win.  Maybe?   
     I tell you, a green quarterstaff lasts longer than a seasoned sapling.  A basher 
friend of mine assures me this is true.  I also notice that the BLACKMAIL stable was 
the most avoided team this turn.  Come on ERINIKA, what are you afraid of?  And 
avoiding BLACKMAIL more than any other team we find SUPER STARS.  ERINIKA, 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?  Congratulations go out to SUE'S BOYS, with HINES WARD revenging a 
bloodfeud against ULTOR TAK of MIDDLE WAY 18.  Is it really true that ERINIKA has 
more dishwashers per capita that fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...   
     Thought for the day, a new sword shines bright, but the notched sword sings the 
sweetest.  Well, I'm burning daylight here in ERINIKA and I've a long road ahead of 
me.  Happy Trails.  Until you see my quill in ERINIKA again, farewell-- Alarond the 
Scribe

P.S.  Oh, shuckins, I didn't realize I'd killed you till I got into the team

Note -- We are still looking for additional teams in Arvat, DM 32.  I still have a
number of good team rollups available FREE for whoever wants one.
     Contact the Devil Advocates ASAP to join the fun!  You can either reach me by
diplo or on the RSI site.
     Also, whoever sent me the diplo with no name on it requesting a rollup /
information on how to get into Arvat, I'm embarassed to admit that the diplo slipped
out of my folder and was lost.  Please just send me another one with your mailing
address and I'll get a rollup to you ASAP.  Sorry about that!
