     You, see, Musgrave?  What you SHOULD be doing is perpetrating a ritual somewhere.  You could call it the Musgrave Ritual.

                                      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.  The DEATH PENALTY guild has 
had a 4-1-0 turn and deserves to be watched in the future.  You never know where this 
kind of thing can lead.  And let's see, ANONYMOUS fought PERSIPHONE and gained 21 
points and contributed to SAND DANCERS' 3-2-0.  PERSIPHONE has lost to ANONYMOUS, 
falling 18 points, while helping make MISCREANTZ a 0-1-0 turn.  And not without some 
honor, BUTCHERS HOOK now claims the title and throne of Duelmaster of LIN TIRIAN.  By 
the way, was that our Duelmaster that I saw last night, cramped under the table at 
The Lost Hope Inn?   
     The crowd's roar, the smell of iron and leather, mixed with sweat, what more 
could a warrior ask of life?  Well, besides that.   
     The Dark Arena is for those who cannot win, not who cannot lose with grace.  
Dignity in life or death is the warrior's creed.  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.  Well, I'm burning daylight here in LIN TIRIAN 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

At least Arnell and I defeated OUR standbys. -- Anonymous

And here also we see the Wrathmen returning.  Glad to have you guys here, even though 
you have anger management issues. -- Jorja and the Sand Dancers
