                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, in LIN TIRIAN a quiet thief gets rich, but a quiet spymaster gets 
poor.  So bring me ale and harken to my tidbits of news.  And let's see, REVEREND 
GRIMM fought ONE-EYE TEO and gained 8 points and contributed to NOTORIOUS BASTARDS' 
4-1-0.  NATALIA NECROANGEL has lost to KHALHUMS DWARF, falling 9 points, while 
helping make NOTORIOUS BASTARDS a 4-1-0 turn.  Defending hers title for another turn, 
KARA HELLBLADE kept LIN TIRIAN's warrior, CONVICTED ASSASSIN, from claiming the 
throne.  By the way, was that our Duelmaster that I saw last night, cramped under the 
table at The Lost Hope Inn?   
     Oriental wise man once say, 'Hiding behind shields prevents proper sun tanning.' 
Inscrutable, but true.  TREE PEOPLE has cause to stand tall, as they were LIN 
TIRIAN's most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a team to beat.  And guess 
who avoided TREE PEOPLE stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was NOTORIOUS 
BASTARDS.  Anyone surprised?   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  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

Baby Split -- You're one tough broad!  Just leap right out and stick your thumb in a
man's only eye, now that's mean.  Brutal, too.  Just because you're an inch taller
than me?  Or is it that you're one of those Orc-haters that I meet now and then?  I
get tired of that. -- One-Eye Teo

Five + Five -- Uh...this is a trick question, right?  The answer is NOT four?  Give
me a few more minutes and it'll come to me.  It WILL, honest. -- Irlon, who has
perhaps been hit on the head one too many times since he entered the arena

Boxwood -- I thought boxes were made out of, you know, pine.  Except when they're
paper.  And people should stay away from them because of people being dead around
them.  I wouldn't want to be killed by, like, some box, you know. -- Blonde Billie

Mr. Metallic -- That's an awful thing to say about your mother!  I am totally
shocked! -- Jayne the Ripper

Kara Hellblade -- And what a hell-cat you are, madam.  It must be your golemness
showing, as most women find me irresistible. -- Villisian t'Ko, Veteran Mercenary
P.S.  You could at least have been polite.
