                                      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.  SWEORDMASTERS turned their 4-0-0 
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 S... MC win a 
fight and gain 19 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, S... MC beat MUTANT BLOWBY and MUTANT 
BLOWBY lost 17 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And it's out with the old, in with 
the new, as RUN'S HOUSE 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, MORDANT?   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.  Ooh, 
I'm frightfully impressed, DOMESTIC DERVISH was this turn's most challenged warrior.  
Watch that ego swell, sports fans.   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for MORDANT's 
morgue.  More variety.  We're all going to die in the end, so why worry if the fate 
catches up with you sooner that later?   
     There's got to be a better place in MORDANT to get a drink than Conan's Place!  
Any suggestions?  Phlllt!  Just had to do that before I leave the fine city of 
MORDANT.  I feel much better now.  Glad to see the back of this place-- Snide Clemens

Mordant -- Void will be disappearing for some time now that our last warrior has
completed timing.  Good luck on the sands! -- DD

Another day, another random victim bonked in an alley.  Things have been much better
that way since the Random Maniac left.  But now... I have to leave, too.  Or so They
say.  Actually, all They MEAN is that I have to stop fighting in the arena.  The
alleys remain mine. -- Black Bonker
P.S.  Two-three for the Homicidal Maniacs, oh-four to the Low Road, and one of those
losses was to a standby.  The heart has gone out of those low-lying wimps.
