                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail DAYLA KIV!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed for 
your deeds.  And let's see, KULVAR TEN KOGAN fought LALVO OF THE PEN and gained 15 
points and contributed to SAND DANCERS' 2-3-0.  KOGAN DJIAN has lost to TESSIE, 
falling 4 points, while helping make SAND DANCERS a 2-3-0 turn.  Defending his title 
for another turn, HOGSHEAD kept TOLBINS LADIES' warrior, BOOMER, from claiming the 
throne.  Can someone confirm a rumor for me?  I hear the top team makes their losing 
fighters do dishes at The Crystal Wheel until they win.  Maybe?   
     He who challenges well, fights well.  He who avoids without cause, shall lose 
for good reasons.  My mama told me that one.  Well, sports fans, take notice that 
GREELO DUFFUS from SAND DANCERS was DAYLA KIV's most challenged warrior this turn.  I 
don't know about you, but ERNEST R. KOUMA challenging down 16 points to SAND DANCERS' 
RUVAN TEN ZHALEN, is not really worthy of MEDAL OF HONOR.  We're not surprised to 
hear that ERNEST R. KOUMA bested RUVAN TEN ZHALEN, but I bet it would be interesting 
to hear why MEDAL OF HONOR made such a challenge.   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  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.  Always good to rest in DAYLA KIV, 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

One-three, because our new guy didn't show up.  If this is Goran's "coping," I'll
take a plate of hash. -- Kogan Djian
P.S.  And no, Goran and I aren't brothers.  "Djian" is an epithet, not a surname.
"Kogan the Dark," just because some people think I have a dark complexion.  I should
go around calling everyone "So-and-so the Fair," or something.
