                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, friends and fiends, welcome to your friendly neighborhood spyreport.  
I doubt ERINIKA will ever be the same.  It seems the training can make the 
difference, as SUPER STARS is pushed out of top team by SUE'S BOYS, who came from 3rd 
with a 4-0-0 this turn.  Now keep the taverns open late tonight, for there are 
sorrows to drown for KNIGHT OF THE ABYSS, whose 0-0-0 this turn dropped them by 5 
into 17th.  FIRST DATE stable has parlayed this turn's 1-0-0 into a 4 space move up 
the rankings.  This brings them up to 12th place.  Good work, guys!  The SUE'S BOYS 
guild has had a 4-0-0 turn and deserves to be watched in the future.  You never know 
where this kind of thing can lead.  And let's see, SUN TZU fought PANAMA OATS and 
gained 18 points and contributed to SUPER STARS' 1-0-0.  ULTOR TAK has lost to BRAD 
PAISLEY, falling 13 points, while helping make MIDDLE WAY 18 a 1-4-0 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.  Tell me, is nothing sacred?  I have heard from unimpeachable sources that 
The Warty Toad uses trolls in their stew.  Talk about gristle!   
     I tell you, a green quarterstaff lasts longer than a seasoned sapling.  A basher 
friend of mine assures me this is true.  BLACKMAIL has cause to stand tall, as they 
were ERINIKA's most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a team to beat.  And 
avoiding BLACKMAIL more than any other team we find SUE'S BOYS.  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?  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 the sun next rises and my pen sets to paper-- Alarond the 
Scribe

held at the Embassy Suites Hotel in Tempe, Arizona (480-894-7444), the same hotel as 
last year by popular request.  Room rates are $129.00 per night, 1-2 occupancy, which

airport shuttle, free parking and free high speed internet.  There's a fitness center, 
jacuzzi, and pool.  The rooms are blocked--please make your reservation by December 22

it and that we will see you there!
