                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, MORDANT?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed 
to see ALICE SAMUELS win a fight and gain 19 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, LITTLE BEAR 
beat BRITTLE and BRITTLE lost 15 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  BALL PEIN Dark 
Arena Challenged STONE GOLEM for MORDANT's Title this turn, and guess what happened?  
The crowds were amazed this turn, as STONE GOLEM killed the Duelmaster, BALL PEIN, 
leaving MANNEQUIN'S BEST in mourning.  This incredible death has allowed, I might 
add, BLACK from FULL SPECTRUM to ascend to the throne of Duelmaster, and I hear DARK 
ARENA is not happy.  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.  
CHINA BULL was challenged more times this turn than the Duelmaster.  Now was the DM 
insulted or feared?  Heh, heh.   
     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.  Titanium shields and bamboo daggers, guess 
what brave team is developing these kinds of weapons?   
     What does the MORDANT arena have in common with the inns?  It's just as 
comfortable to sleep in either place.  Ha ha ha ha!  Well, I've had enough of this 
drivel, and I'm sure you have too.  Off like a dirty shirt of padded leather.  Glad 
to see the back of this place-- Snide Clemens

Ball Pein -- Damn, that fender's not just bent, it's crashed, crumpled, and
irretrievable.  I hate it when that happens. -- Ghost of Fender Bender

Crater Face -- What I wonder sometimes is, What was the lab experimenter trying to do
in the first place? -- China Bull
P.S.  Were you supposed to be the, ah, test medium in a search for the cure for acne?

Iosio -- A true philanthropist would have taught me more than one skill, but... what
can one expect from a golem?  Truly, you're worthless creations for most purposes. --
Random Maniac
P.S.  Although you do make good targets for wild killing sprees.  And a wild killing
spree now and then keeps the arteries clear.

Mclovin -- The Oaf was speechless.  Imagine any comments that suit you, and let it go
at that. -- China Bull

Our congratulations to Ball Pein. -- Jorja and the Homicidal Maniacs

9 February 10
All -- I know you all thought the old Wiz that is Fiz went off to die somewhere.
Well, I didn't.  Now I'm back to befuddle and frustrate you with my senseless
ramblings.  I look forward to reconnecting with all my old friends and enemies alike.
