                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
TRANSEL brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Of course, we're all terribly 
impressed to see PRIVATE LIFE win a fight and gain 14 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, 
WEGERIN GREATBLADE beat LOVELIGHT and LOVELIGHT lost 15 points.  You're breakin' my 
heart.  And if variety is the spice of life, TRANSEL may be getting bland, as BIG 
BOSS MAN stays top dog in the city.  Kickbacks and bribes, kickbacks and bribes, how 
else do you think some of these guys win their fights?  Skill?  Ha!   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.  
BLOODHAMMER CLAN, I suppose you'll be glad to know you were this turn's most avoided 
team.  Care to know who is the most afraid of you?  And it looks like OINGO BOINGO 
avoided them the most this turn.  What a pack of would be losers, if you ask me.  
Hmph.  COCO BLANCO was challenged more times this turn than the Duelmaster.  Now was 
the DM insulted or feared?  Heh, heh.   
     Ah, now we come to my favorite part, where we see all the guys who are dead and 
gone, and get to see if their team cared.  Titanium shields and bamboo daggers, guess 
what brave team is developing these kinds of weapons?   
     I was about to buy a new quill pen the other day, but some fighter took it for 
an epee.  Forgive me for writing with a dagger.  Well, I've had enough of this 
drivel, and I'm sure you have too.  Off like a dirty shirt of padded leather.  I see 
the crowds are getting restless, I must leave now-- Snide Clemens
