                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
MORDANT brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Of course, we're all terribly 
impressed to see HARD TIMES win a fight and gain 10 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, HARD 
TIMES beat BLACK BONKER and BLACK BONKER lost 8 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  
And if variety is the spice of life, MORDANT may be getting bland, as NAEGLING stays 
top dog in the city.  Conan's Place, humph!  I've tasted better ale at mortuaries.  
Where do they get this stuff?  From MORDANT's trash dumps?   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.  What's 
the big D?  THE MOTHERSHIP 4 was the most avoided team?  Bunch of lily livered... 
grumble... mumble... curse...  And who led the way in this mass act of cowardice?  
Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It was SWEORDMASTERS.  Ha ha ha ha!  Ooh, I'm 
frightfully impressed, RANDOM MANIAC was this turn's most challenged warrior.  Watch 
that ego swell, sports fans.  And we have BRANDY in a challenge, going down 11 points 
for the fight.  Guess what?  I thought BRANDY showed great skill and promise when she 
subdued RANDOM MANIAC.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for MORDANT's 
morgue.  More variety.  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!  Glad to see the back of this place-- Snide

     Thirteen to the Dark Arena last time?  We'll have to put in for extra pay. --
     Arenamaster Kakar

Big-Headed Kat -- Know, foul motherless beast, that for you I have provided
*infected* cereal.  It's got *weevils* in it, and they have the dreaded Rodeki
Spotted Fever.  Take that, you wide-mouthed creature! -- Cereal Killer

Lord Byron -- How is it that you defeated me, you wretched degenerate?  There are
hidden forces at work here!  Conscienceless minions!  Lackeys of the power structure,
too, most likely.  You may have defeated me *now*, but I will not rest until I have
found the secret of your power and cut you off from it. -- Masked Murderer

Brandy -- That was ever my downfall. -- Random Maniac

Hard Times -- I'll *get* you for that!  No one makes that kind of move on my daughter
and just gets *ignored*!  As soon as I clean the mud out of these barrels.... --
Shotgun Daddy

Grunesh the Orc -- I would say that you are a loathesome creature, which is prefectly
true.  But so many others today have merited that description that it loses force. 
Perhaps I will have thought of some other term by next time, or perhaps there won't
be as many *other* loathesome creatures around next time. -- Black Bonker
