                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
STORMCROWE brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Later days, SHEWISH BUFFET, since 
MAX'S MIRACLE took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  Of course, 
we're all terribly impressed to see THE KING win a fight and gain 15 points, 
terribly.  Tsk, tsk, SNAEGH beat SLOPPY JOE and SLOPPY JOE lost 3 points.  You're 
breakin' my heart.  THE MAN IN BLACK challenged STORMCROWE's Duelmaster for a shot at 
the throne.  And if variety is the spice of life, STORMCROWE may be getting bland, as 
ANGEL CAKE 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.  
STORMCROWE, I am losing what little hope I had in you.  MEN OF ILL REPUTE the most 
avoided team?  What insult will suffice, I cannot say.  And it looks like AVID FANS 
avoided them the most this turn.  What a pack of would be losers, if you ask me.  
Hmph.  BUTTERCUP was challenged more times this turn than the Duelmaster.  Now was 
the DM insulted or feared?  Heh, heh.  Looks like time for laurels or hemlock, 
BUTTERCUP was challenged by NOK GORKA, who was ranked 31 points below her.  And sure, 
NOK GORKA lost alright, but gained 7 recognition for his pains.  And pains they may 
indeed be!   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  Titanium shields and bamboo daggers, guess what brave 
team is developing these kinds of weapons?   
     There's got to be a better place in STORMCROWE to get a drink than The Shadow's 
Fountain!  Any suggestions?  Phlllt!  Just had to do that before I leave the fine 
city of STORMCROWE.  I feel much better now.  Glad to see the back of this place--

             ATTENTION:  ALL MANAGERS WHO ARE ATTENDING THE FACE-TO-FACE

If you plan to attend the Winter Face-to-Face in Phoenix, please let Customer Service 
know.  We will hold your turns for the few days preceding the tourney, starting with 
anything that would mail out on the previous Saturday.  (This means that games due on 
Thursday the 9th (which would mail on Friday) would probably mail to you, but games 
due on the 10th and thereafter will be held and delivered to you at the tournament.  
This way, you won't have to worry about not receiving a critical turn before you 
depart for Newark, and you also don't have to worry about whether you can get a 
reprint before the first turn of the tournament is due.  

See you there!
