                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, friends and fiends, welcome to your friendly neighborhood spyreport.  
I doubt DAYLA KIV will ever be the same.  And let's see, KALEN TEN KORU fought MAKAR 
TEL SORIAN and gained 16 points and contributed to SAND DANCERS' 4-1-0.  BLUE WAFFLES 
has lost to KHARHOVAN TEN SIU, falling 4 points, while helping make BUBBA'S DINER a 
0-1-0 turn.  Due to its absence and inability to defend the throne, TUNA SALAD has 
lost the title of Duelmaster.  And not without some honor, SPIDERPIG now claims the 
title and throne of Duelmaster of DAYLA KIV.  Tell me, is nothing sacred?  I have 
heard from unimpeachable sources that The Crystal Wheel 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.   
     The Dark Arena is for those who cannot win, not who cannot lose with grace.  
Dignity in life or death is the warrior's creed.  Is it really true that DAYLA KIV 
has more dishwashers per capita that fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...   
     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
