                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
ARVAT brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Gee, I'm impressed, a 4-1-0 is nice, 
but don't get cocky, SECRET SQUIRRELS, the Fates teach humility, and the Fates are 
proud.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed to see CPT OBVIOUS win a fight and 
gain 22 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, CPT OBVIOUS beat RAGGUS IRONHEAD and RAGGUS 
IRONHEAD lost 17 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And if variety is the spice of 
life, ARVAT may be getting bland, as SPUTO 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!   
     My mother always told me, 'If you don't have anything nice to say, start 
talking.' I loved that woman.  BIG LAKE NOMADS, 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 
who led the way in this mass act of cowardice?  Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It 
was BIG LAKE NOMADS.  Ha ha ha ha!  Ooh, I'm frightfully impressed, TUTTOFARE was 
this turn's most challenged warrior.  Watch that ego swell, sports fans.  I guess I 
can give a little credit to INTAIL ANNALYST of SECRET SQUIRRELS for challenging up by 
19 to MONKEY WRENCH.  INTAIL ANNALYST lost to get 41 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.  And sending TUTTOFARE to the Dark Arena was supposed 
to be one of your better ideas, IL MALVAGIO?  Titanium shields and bamboo daggers, 
guess what brave team is developing these kinds of weapons?   
     What does the ARVAT arena have in common with the inns?  It's just as 
comfortable to sleep in either place.  Ha ha ha ha!  Just wait 'till next time I show 
up here, I won't be so nice!  So nyaaah!  Paste this one in your scrapbooks, you'll 
need the kindling come this winter-- Snide Clemens

Giant Killers / Cort -- See, that's how you fill out a challenge.  If you just write 
'Me challenge sum guy' in the challenge slot it doesn't really work!  At least you got 
that out of your system.  Thanks for the skills and sorry for the kills. -- Bea Hemoth

Congratulations on turn 800, Arvat.  If we'd been paying attention we could have 
thrown a party.  Tell you what.  Turn 805 will be 700 turns of the Devil Advocates in 
Arvat.  Maybe we'll come up with a party...  Actually, we have a contest coming up!  
If we ever finish getting the rules ironed out and getting approval from RSI... -- the 
Devils

Little Hope -- Aptly named... -- Tim P. Torr

Lefty Morales -- Please bring me more skills again.  I may even let you have my 
library card so you can study... you know, in case the fighting thing doesn't work 
out. -- MAJ Snafu

German Pilsener -- Was really hoping you would teach better.... :-( sad face. -- CPT 
Obvious

B London -- Don't lose your head dude.... era dudette.... :-D -- Intail Annalyst
