                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, friends and fiends, welcome to your friendly neighborhood spyreport.  
I doubt SHADOWSPIRE will ever be the same.  Now, what did these guys have for 
breakfast this morning?  ALE HOUSE MERCS has turned a 4-1-0 into 3rd place from 18th. 
Give me the recipe!  The HOUSE OF HEARTS 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, DECIMUS fought J.G. BALLARD and gained 27 points and contributed to 
WARMASTERS' 2-3-1.  RUPERT IRONFIST has lost to ALANNA WYRMCLAW, falling 21 points, 
while helping make CLAN IRONFIST a 0-5-0 turn.  E.E. CUMMINGS challenged for the 
Duelmastership this turn, attempting to dethrone DARQUE AGES' warrior.  The attempts 
to dethrone the Duelmaster have failed, and DA VINCI remains SHADOWSPIRE's top 
warrior for another turn.  Tell me, is nothing sacred?  I have heard from 
unimpeachable sources that The Welcome Wench uses trolls in their stew.  Talk about 
gristle!   
     I tell you, a green quarterstaff lasts longer than a seasoned sapling.  A basher 
friend of mine assures me this is true.  KELLUMBO'S KIDS has cause to stand tall, as 
they were SHADOWSPIRE's most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a team to 
beat.  And guess who avoided KELLUMBO'S KIDS stable the most?  Believe it or not, it 
was WARMASTERS.  Anyone surprised?  The most challenged warrior this turn was THE 
DRAUGS' warrior ANGRENDRAUG.  More fighters challenged him than challenged the 
Duelmaster!  Well now, what do you expect when someone like DEANA from KELLUMBO'S 
KIDS challenges down 45 points to fight SPONGE BATH of AARP?  I thought challenges 
were for warriors, not cowards looking for easy wins.  DEANA bested SPONGE BATH, is 
nothing sacred?  Tsk, tsk, tsk.  TYRA, does your manager know you're challenging down 
17 points to fight COOL BREEZE from ELECTRIC KOOL-AID?  It pains me to see warriors 
take advantage of the system like this.  TYRA beat COOL BREEZE, as if it surprises 
anyone.  Building dreams on hope, MIA HAMM challenged up 26 points this turn to take 
on BAD LASS from KATHOUSE stable.  And now nobody knows where BAD LASS is right now, 
after giving MIA HAMM 31 points worth of recognition.  As quiet chuckles rise behind 
me.  In a brave attempt, '69 CAMARO Z28 from AMERICAN MUSCLE challenged up 21 points 
to fight PLASMA CUTTER from the WOODY'S WORKSHOP stable.  '69 CAMARO Z28 perhaps got 
his just desserts, seeing as he was defeated by PLASMA CUTTER and ended up with 5 
recognition points.   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  BIG LAKE OUTCASTS has lost HARM HEELHACKER to the arena in the sky, 
but they don't seem to be worried.  What do you expect from 10-16-0?  I guess it was 
coming sooner or later, KATHOUSE has lost WHLOTTA ROSIE, and SHADOWSPIRE is bound to 
miss her.  For a little while, at least.  J.G. BALLARD has departed SHADOWSPIRE, 
leaving LITERATE LOONS without their 15-16-0 warrior.  Question, just what was his 
team doing at the taverns last night?  KATHOUSE has lost BAD LASS to the arena in the 
sky, but they don't seem to be worried.  What do you expect from 9-7-1?  Seriously 
now, is it really honorable for ANGRENDRAUG from THE DRAUGS to kill HARM HEELHACKER 
and give BIG LAKE OUTCASTS the chance to bloodfeud?  Mmmm, could be.  This is the 
stuff legends are made of.  MIA HAMM has killed BAD LASS, a 9-7-1 warrior of 
KATHOUSE.  I hear CAROLINA BLUE welcomes a bloodfeud challenge.  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.   
     I like this place, SHADOWSPIRE, the taverns have old wine, and young serving 
girls.  Who could ask for more?  Well, I'm burning daylight here in SHADOWSPIRE and 
I've a long road ahead of me.  Happy Trails.  Until you see my quill in SHADOWSPIRE 
again, farewell-- Alarond the Scribe

J.G. Ballard -- No, no.  There are no spies in our midst.  Master Darque just suffers
from mild lysdexia at times and sometimes transposes numbers, sometimes names, and
sometimes he just plain screws up with no excuse.  Whatever it may be, we warriors
are usually the ones that pay for his mistakes. -- Gutenberg

All -- For those interested in such things:  Da Vinci was a Striker designed as 11-9-
9-17-9-16-13.  50 skills learned in 31 fights for a 1.61 skills per fight average.
Numbers like that would get you killed on any of my other teams, but since this is no
tourney it is passable.  According to the Commission, he likes the LO and the Lunge
tactic, as well as a HI offensive effort and LO activity level.  He is off to
retirement until such time the Commission deems it profitable to open a no-tourney
ADM arena. -- Master Darque

Ugly!  What can I say?  I feel like a horse shot 4 meters from the finish line.... --
Le Pentarque

Grats to the Warmasters though, for this is their day!

Well, Powder Hound and Djaimz both had their revenge...too bad it was on this
particular turn.... -- The Small Cat and Import-Export, missing the last steps

Gigi Divine is Bovine. -- Alice

Baron Stonewall -- It's gonna take a while to pound the dents out of that armor.  I
should have won, you really hung in there. -- Hunter

Rupert -- Nice win.  I can't believe I lost that one. -- Hardrada

Hunter -- A close call, but it did come out the way I had hoped. -- Baron Stonewall

Tyra and the other Kids -- I got a challenge through!?  I didn't expect to actually
get through.  It was nice to see that I could contribute to trying to hold you back
from 100 wins.  It may not be enough for the Guild to catch you, but the race is
alive for one more turn! -- Alanna Wyrmclaw

Hade's Angel -- Huh.  I would not have thought that I had the advantage in that
match-up.  That was nice.  Sometimes it is possible to win despite the match-up. --
Balliol Blackmoon

Welcome to Geographica and congratulations to the grads! -- Nomad and the Dragonbane
Guild

Joan of Arc -- The gods saw fit for you to sink my boat this time. -- Krek

Angrendraug -- I would rather be lucky than good any day. -- Borne

J.G. Ballard -- What!  How!  Arggghh -- LLud

Laith -- I wasn't staring at your chest.  I had a crick in my neck that kept me from
looking any higher. -- Angus

'69 Charger and American Muscle -- Tally another one up for the inept infirmary
staff.  My condolences. -- Slim

All -- Krek is the 1st from Clan Longbeard to get their invite and the first to
announce his retirement.  11(1)-9-16-17(1)-17(1)-7-11(1)  Lunger, his fav's are
Shortsword, High/High, Attack skills.

Natty Light -- I was extremely lucky to have survived your onslaught. -- Borne

Djohey Djr -- I said "give up", not beat me up. -- Llud

Orc Chops -- You have improved since we last met.  Well done. -- Angus

'70 Superbird -- You avenged your fallen comrade with honor.  I salute you and will
offer a toast in his memory.  Once I get out of the infirmary of course. -- Slim

Kiri Facade -- More proof that I have made the right choice in retiring. -- Krek

Gron Da Caveman -- Either I am improving or I just got lucky. -- Borne

Flor -- So much for that weapon choice. -- Llud

Cyrus Ironfist -- Three crit damage hits.  What are you made of, stone? -- Angus

Sponge Bath -- A Golem named sponge bath, that is a scary thought. -- Slim
