                                      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.  Later days, CHUCK'S PINUPS, since 
SWEORDMASTERS took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  SWEORDMASTERS 
turned their 4-0-1 turn into a 1st 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 ROT GUT win a fight and gain 30 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, ROT GUT beat FIANNA 
QUINN and FIANNA QUINN lost 25 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  Due to absence, 
and inability to defend the throne, RUN'S HOUSE has lost the Title of Duelmaster.  
Start setting that alarm earlier!  And it's out with the old, in with the new, as 
WYRTHA 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?   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.  
What's the big D?  RUN DMC was the most avoided team?  Bunch of lily livered... 
grumble... mumble... curse...  And it looks like CHUCK'S PINUPS avoided them the most 
this turn.  What a pack of would be losers, if you ask me.  Hmph.  I notice TOBY WING 
challenging down 24 points to fight MASKED MURDERER II, CHUCK'S PINUPS doubtless has 
some rotten excuse for such an insult to honor.  And golly gee, TOBY WING defeated 
MASKED MURDERER II.  Aren't we all surprised and impressed?  MARY MARY was challenged 
by one of CHUCK'S PINUPS' warriors this turn, with SANDRA DEE having a lead of 23 
points going into the fight.  And sorry to say, SANDRA DEE beat MARY MARY, leaving a 
bad feeling with the crowd.  I think exploitive snob is the term I'm looking for.   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  SWEORDMASTERS has cause to pause today, as 
GRASSCUTTER was sent to the Dark Arena, and came back--though not in the best of 
moods, I'll wager.  Honor is like a chainmail shirt, it only shines through use.  
Certain nameless cowards will doubtless rebuke me on this one.   
     There's got to be a better place in MORDANT to get a drink than Conan's Place!  
Any suggestions?  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

Novgorodny Vir -- Not to butt in on things that don't concern my team, but... if
someone had TRULY seen Grasscutter with the shakes, there'd be a lot of finely
chopped grass around.  Since there isn't, I have to judge that a base cannard (is
there any other kind of cannard?). -- Schoolbus Driver

Our congratulations to Grasscutter, who was obviously not in some kind of distress
and probably not even in the tavern. -- Jorja and the Homicidal Maniacs and Low
Roaders

Ah!  I am most popular, most challenged, everything a gladiator could want to be--

(except most winning, dummy)

--and I bask in it.  Obviously, the people of Mordant understand the importance of my
quest for the BLOODTHIRSTY VILLAIN who is my target.  With their help in FINDING this
cunning rogue, I WILL bring an end to his reign of infamy! -- Masked Murderer

We had three fights against Black Devin?  How odd.  Catty and I won, and Handy, true
to his innate ineptitude, lost.  The fights against managed gladiators were, of
course, also lost. -- Schoolbus Driver

One-two for the Low Roaders.  Ha.  And one of those losses was against a standby! --
