                                      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, TESSIE fought TRAVELING 
TINKER and gained 22 points and contributed to TOLBINS LADIES' 4-1-0.  RUVAN TEN 
ZHALEN has lost to IACKE, falling 10 points, while helping make SAND DANCERS a 0-5-0 
turn.  And all eyes were on HOGSHEAD this turn as he ascended to the throne of 
Duelmaster.  DAYLA KIV has a new victor!  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?   
     Oriental wise man once say, 'Hiding behind shields prevents proper sun tanning.' 
Inscrutable, but true.  COUNTRY PIE has cause to stand tall, as they were DAYLA KIV's 
most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a team to beat.  And guess who 
avoided COUNTRY PIE stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was GRIZZLED VETERANS.  
Anyone surprised?  The most challenged warrior this turn was SAND DANCERS' warrior 
RUVAN TEN ZHALEN.  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?  This is not good to see.  Why pray tell has BIG WHITE GOOSE been 
sent to the Dark Arena by COUNTRY PIE?  And why with a 4-0-0 record??  We'd like to 
remind certain teams not to rob the graves of their enemies.  You know who you are; 
and it's considered rude.   
     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

Three-two for us this time, and I don't see why the steward called our wins "lucky"
and "unbelievable."  Prejudice, that's what it is.  Also, I want to make it clear
that *I* did not say Sasha was "melon-like."  That was the dumb spy reporter.  You
could tell he was dumb, because he was trying to do a report with a bag over his
head.  I said that Sasha was a peach.  NOT a melon. -- Kogan Djian
