                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, MALCORN?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Later days, GREENWARDENS, since 
BLOODSWORN took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  Now keep the 
taverns open late tonight, for there are sorrows to drown for GREENWARDENS, whose 
0-5-0 this turn dropped them by 4 into 5th.  Ha!  GONE OFF THAT turned their 2-2-0 
turn into a 3rd place rank in the listings this turn.  Any better than this, and you 
get put on hit lists.  Now let's all watch BLOODSWORN's heads swell from their 4-1-0 
this turn.  Haa ha ha ha!  Big shots, big talk, big deal.  Of course, we're all 
terribly impressed to see HUNGRY PEASANT win a fight and gain 14 points, terribly.  
Tsk, tsk, HUNGRY PEASANT beat WINTERGREEN and WINTERGREEN lost 11 points.  You're 
breakin' my heart.  And if variety is the spice of life, MALCORN may be getting 
bland, as GROOVY SIR GRIMM stays top dog in the city.  I'm not in a very good mood 
today, but why am I telling you this?  You want to know what's new, don't you, 
MALCORN?   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for MALCORN's 
morgue.  More variety.  We're all going to die in the end, so why worry if the fate 
catches up with you sooner that later?   
     What does the MALCORN arena have in common with the inns?  It's just as 
comfortable to sleep in either place.  Ha ha ha ha!  Well, I've had enough of this 
drivel, and I'm sure you have too.  Off like a dirty shirt of padded leather.  Glad 
to see the back of this place-- Snide Clemens
