                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, friends and fiends, welcome to your friendly neighborhood spyreport.  
I doubt DAYLA KIV will ever be the same.  It seems the training can make the 
difference, as SAND DANCERS is pushed out of top team by I HATE TOURNEYS, who came 
from 2nd with a 2-0-0 this turn.  The THE FUNKENSTEINS guild has had a 3-1-0 turn and 
deserves to be watched in the future.  You never know where this kind of thing can 
lead.  And let's see, REGINALD FUNKENSTEIN fought RUVAN TEN ZHALEN and gained 19 
points and contributed to THE FUNKENSTEINS' 3-1-0.  RUVAN TEN ZHALEN has lost to 
REGINALD FUNKENSTEIN, falling 17 points, while helping make SAND DANCERS a 2-3-0 
turn.  This week's Duelmaster bout was between KORBIN TEN BARAN and our Duelmaster 
TAX MAIL-IN, making a challenge.  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?   
     Oriental wise man once say, 'Hiding behind shields prevents proper sun tanning.' 
Inscrutable, but true.  MEDAL OF HONOR 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 avoiding 
MEDAL OF HONOR more than any other team we find I HATE TOURNEYS.  DAYLA KIV, are we 
going to accept, or respect this sort of thing?  The most challenged warrior this 
turn was HOMER'S PETS' warrior SNOWBALL II.  More fighters challenged it than 
challenged the Duelmaster!   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  A brave warrior does not carry a red shield, he has nothing to cover or 
hide when the fight is over.  Consider well.   
     Thought for the day, a new sword shines bright, but the notched sword sings the 
sweetest.  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

Two-three-one.  A win at the price of a kill was not in our planning, as it gets
Jorja (a notorious killer in her day) all stirred up.  We regret, we won't dodge a
bloodfeud, but there it is:  Jack challenged Ruvan and died of it. -- Korbin ten
