                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, LAPUR?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Later days, CARDOW HUNTERS, since THE 
TAKEN took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  Of course, we're all 
terribly impressed to see BAK SHIELDBORN win a fight and gain 19 points, terribly.  
Tsk, tsk, NEKODA beat DANCES WITH RAIN and DANCES WITH RAIN lost 10 points.  You're 
breakin' my heart.  And if variety is the spice of life, LAPUR may be getting bland, 
as MILEY VIRUS 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.  
What's the big D?  BLACK SAMURAI was the most avoided team?  Bunch of lily livered... 
grumble... mumble... curse...  And who led the way in this mass act of cowardice?  
Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It was PERFECT TIMING.  Ha ha ha ha!  Ooh, I'm 
frightfully impressed, MAUL RAT was this turn's most challenged warrior.  Watch that 
ego swell, sports fans.  I guess I can give a little credit to ITADAKI of BLACK 
SAMURAI for challenging up by 21 to DEPRAVATION.  ITADAKI lost to get 2 points of 
recognition.   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  We're all going to die in the end, so why worry if 
the fate catches up with you sooner that later?   
     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.  Paste 
this one in your scrapbooks, you'll need the kindling come this winter-- Snide 
Clemens
