                                      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, BLOODGAMES fought KOGAN 
DJIAN and gained 13 points and contributed to I HATE TOURNEYS' 2-0-0.  KOGAN DJIAN 
has lost to BLOODGAMES, falling 12 points, while helping make SAND DANCERS a 1-4-0 
turn.  The attempts to dethrone the Duelmaster have failed, and TAX MAIL-IN remains 
DAYLA KIV's top warrior for another turn.  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?   
     I tell you, a green quarterstaff lasts longer than a seasoned sapling.  A basher 
friend of mine assures me this is true.  I also notice that the MOB BOSSES stable was 
the most avoided team this turn.  Come on DAYLA KIV, what are you afraid of?  And 
avoiding MOB BOSSES more than any other team we find GAMES CRIP PLAYS.  DAYLA KIV, 
are we going to accept, or respect this sort of thing?  The most challenged warrior 
this turn was SAND DANCERS' warrior RUVAN TEN ZHALEN.  More fighters challenged him 
than challenged the Duelmaster!  Well now, what do you expect when someone like TERRY 
SEYMOUR from MEDAL OF HONOR challenges down 17 points to fight RUVAN TEN ZHALEN of 
SAND DANCERS?  Well, will you look at this, TERRY SEYMOUR was defeated by RUVAN TEN 
ZHALEN, and MEDAL OF HONOR will have to explain why they made such a challenge in the 
first place.  In a brave attempt, CIVILIZATION from GAMES CRIP PLAYS challenged up 23 
points to fight ERNEST R. KOUMA from the MEDAL OF HONOR stable.  CIVILIZATION perhaps 
got its just desserts, seeing as it was subdued by ERNEST R. KOUMA and ended up with 
37 recognition points.   
     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...   
     I like this place, DAYLA KIV, the taverns have old wine, and young serving 
girls.  Who could ask for more?  Well, I'm burning daylight here in DAYLA KIV and 
I've a long road ahead of me.  Happy Trails.  Until the sun next rises and my pen 
sets to paper-- Alarond the Scribe
