                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, in DAYLA KIV a quiet thief gets rich, but a quiet spymaster gets poor. 
So bring me ale and harken to my tidbits of news.  And let's see, TACTICAL NUKE 
fought 111 and gained 22 points and contributed to HEAVY HITTERS' 1-0-0.  111 has 
lost to TACTICAL NUKE, falling 15 points, while helping make NUMB-ERS a 2-3-0 turn.  
Defending his title for another turn, ALEXANDROS kept SAND DANCERS' warrior, MARDEL 
TEN VAREN, from claiming the throne.  By the way, was that our Duelmaster that I saw 
last night, cramped under the table at The Crystal Wheel?   
     He who challenges well, fights well.  He who avoids without cause, shall lose 
for good reasons.  My mama told me that one.  The most challenged warrior this turn 
was SAND DANCERS' warrior GORBLE.  More fighters challenged him than challenged the 
Duelmaster!   
     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 DAYLA KIV 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.  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
