                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, TROCAR?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Later days, CHEEZY GOODNESS, since 
KILLER B'S took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  Of course, we're 
all terribly impressed to see POWERLESS AMP win a fight and gain 23 points, terribly. 
Tsk, tsk, POWERLESS AMP beat CHEOPA and CHEOPA lost 18 points.  You're breakin' my 
heart.  Due to absence, and inability to defend the throne, FOGGED UP MIRROR has lost 
the Title of Duelmaster.  Start setting that alarm earlier!  And it's out with the 
old, in with the new, as YAHOO WAHOO takes the Title and last week's bar tab from the 
old Duelmaster.  Heh, heh.  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, TROCAR?   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.  CHEEZY 
GOODNESS, 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 KILLER B'S avoided 
them the most this turn.  What a pack of would be losers, if you ask me.  Hmph.  Ooh, 
I'm frightfully impressed, YAHOO WAHOO was this turn's most challenged warrior.  
Watch that ego swell, sports fans.   
     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.  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.  Phlllt!  Just had to do that before 
I leave the fine city of TROCAR.  I feel much better now.  Glad to see the back of 
this place-- Snide Clemens

Sun Zoo -- I actually rarely look at those statements, but they refer only to the 
starting skill levels of your warrior.  The first one (usually referred to as activity 
statement) is simply of the starting Initiative skills, plus the starting Riposte 
skills.  So, "relatively slow and inactive" usually indicates Init + Rip is between 7 
and 15 (though it might be lower, like 7-11).  I have an incomplete table that I can 
try to send you, but it is not particularly well made (or user friendly).  You can 
diplo me if you want them, and I can either forward via diplo or by postal mail.  The 
second statement refers to the starting defence skills of the character, and the 
indented statement that may or may not appear after that reflects the starting parry 
skills of the character.  So in the case you mention, the Initiative and Riposte 
levels are low, but the Defence levels are high.  In your case, Incredibly quick and 
elusive on his feet starts with 7 or more defence skills.  With no sub-statement to 
that, the starting parry level is between 1 and 5 I think.  There is nothing on the 
character overview which anyone has found that correlates to favourite learns/weapons/ 
rhythms. -- Crip, mgr or Useless Tools (and formerly Sparf!) and teams in every slow
