                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, MORDANT?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Later days, ROMAN EMPIRE, since SEA DOGS 
took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  If this keeps up, JGW 
PERISHABLE, you'll have to shine swords instead of use them.  A drop of 7 in the 
rankings?  SHE'S CRAFTY turned their 3-2-1 turn into a 2nd place rank in the listings 
this turn.  Any better than this, and you get put on hit lists.  Of course, we're all 
terribly impressed to see HORTATOR win a fight and gain 16 points, terribly.  Tsk, 
tsk, HORTATOR beat POCKET ROCKET and POCKET ROCKET lost 13 points.  You're breakin' 
my heart.  Looks like MORDANT has some guts at least, BELY MEDVED the Duelmaster was 
this turn's most-challenged warrior.  WINDREAVER challenged MORDANT's Duelmaster for 
a shot at the throne.  And if variety is the spice of life, MORDANT may be getting 
bland, as BELY MEDVED 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, MORDANT?   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.  What's 
the big D?  SWEORDMASTERS was the most avoided team?  Bunch of lily livered... 
grumble... mumble... curse...  And it looks like SHE'S CRAFTY avoided them the most 
this turn.  What a pack of would be losers, if you ask me.  Hmph.  And we have VANE 
in a challenge, going down 10 points for the fight.  Guess what?  I thought VANE 
showed great skill and promise when he subdued TANKERBELL.  All right, so I slept 
through it!  Big deal!   
     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.  It's about time IRON got beat for picking 
on warriors like HEIDI?.  Bravo, LAB EXPERIMENTS.  See you at Conan's Place.  
Titanium shields and bamboo daggers, guess what brave team is developing these kinds 
of weapons?   
     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.  Just wait 'till next time I show up 
here, I won't be so nice!  So nyaaah!  I see the crowds are getting restless, I must 
leave now-- Snide Clemens

I have not been receiving my physical turns in a reliable manner lately.  If there
are diplos with the turns that go missing, they're gone for good.  So if you send me
a diplo and do not see an acknowledgement of receipt in the personals, know that I
have not gotten it (yet).  If you have email, contact me at Livia AT reality DOT com.
If you don't have email, keep trying with the diplos.  We are working on this
problem. -- the Scribe/Jorja/Leeta
