                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, in ERINIKA a quiet thief gets rich, but a quiet spymaster gets poor.  
So bring me ale and harken to my tidbits of news.  THE BEGINNING stable has parlayed 
this turn's 1-0-0 into a 5 space move up the rankings.  This brings them up to 5th 
place.  Good work, guys!  And let's see, STINK fought THE POISON ANGER and gained 19 
points and contributed to DUDS' 3-0-0.  THE POISON ANGER has lost to STINK, falling 
16 points, while helping make DARQUE WATERS a 3-2-0 turn.  And not without some 
honor, ENDU ENDU now claims the title and throne of Duelmaster of ERINIKA.  By the 
way, was that our Duelmaster that I saw last night, cramped under the table at The 
Welcome Wench?   
     Oriental wise man once say, 'Hiding behind shields prevents proper sun tanning.' 
Inscrutable, but true.  I also notice that the THE BEGINNING stable was the most 
avoided team this turn.  Come on ERINIKA, what are you afraid of?  And avoiding THE 
BEGINNING more than any other team we find DUDS.  ERINIKA, are we going to accept, or 
respect this sort of thing?  Well, sports fans, take notice that RAEMOND PURR from 
MIDDLE WAY 18 was ERINIKA's most challenged warrior this turn.  THE BIG BANG of THE 
BEGINNING had better have a good reason for challenging down 9 points in a challenge 
which he won.  I thought THE BIG BANG showed great skill and promise when he won 
victory over RAEMOND PURR.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  Will DARQUE WATERS get away with NEPTUNE SCREAM having killed ENGLISH 
LEATHER of WORLDWIDE GORE?  One more turn, and the bloodfeud's over, at least 
officially.  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.  Always good to rest in ERINIKA, but never good to wear out my welcome.  
Look for me in future turns.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets to paper-- 
Alarond the Scribe

We salute the tourney participants, with a special, though distant and reluctant,
wave for Stink, tourney victor. -- Jorja and those who walk the Middle Way

One-four, with the win over a standby.  Disappointing.  We've had better days, and no
doubt we will again.  Soon. -- Raemond Purr
