                                      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, SERGEANT 1 
fought PERSISTANT BEGGAR and gained 15 points and contributed to MEDAL OF HONOR Z2's 
5-0-0.  MANDI COBRA has lost to SERGEANT 4, falling 5 points, while helping make SAND 
DANCERS a 0-5-0 turn.  We should ask GENERAL 2 about the thrill of victory, and what 
being the new Duelmaster does for a warrior, he's now the one to ask.  Tell me, is 
nothing sacred?  I have heard from unimpeachable sources that The Lost Hope Inn uses 
trolls in their stew.  Talk about gristle!   
     The crowd's roar, the smell of iron and leather, mixed with sweat, what more 
could a warrior ask of life?  Well, besides that.   
     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.   
     Thought for the day, a new sword shines bright, but the notched sword sings the 
sweetest.  Always good to rest in LIN TIRIAN, but never good to wear out my welcome.  
Look for me in future turns.  Until you see my quill in LIN TIRIAN again, farewell-- 
Alarond the Scribe

Seven fights again, but one was in the Dark Arena, and three of the others involved
standbys.  It's probably the weather.  Everyone's staying home and huddling over the
fire.  I wouldn't mind staying home and huddling over a fire myself, and sometimes I

wonder why I ever consented to move to this godsforsaken northern outpost.  Then I
remember that it was this or the headsman's block. -- the Mongoose
P.S.  Two-three this time, and that's an IMPROVEMENT.
