                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
NIANIA brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Of course, we're all terribly 
impressed to see AMBEERDEXTROUS win a fight and gain 38 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, 
CHOCOLATE COW beat LORINDA and LORINDA lost 8 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And 
if variety is the spice of life, NIANIA may be getting bland, as HEMLOCK 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, NIANIA?   
     My mother always told me, 'If you don't have anything nice to say, start 
talking.' I loved that woman.  NIANIA, I am losing what little hope I had in you.  
SERPENTS HOLD the most avoided team?  What insult will suffice, I cannot say.  And it 
looks like 042909A avoided them the most this turn.  What a pack of would be losers, 
if you ask me.  Hmph.  LORINDA was challenged more times this turn than the 
Duelmaster.  Now was the DM insulted or feared?  Heh, heh.   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for NIANIA's 
morgue.  More variety.  Let's see, 17-7-1.  Pretty good record for a living warrior.  
A sad one though, for a dead one.  Such is the case for HELENADERE of THE GOLDEN 
FISH.  Tsk.  Bye bye, warrior, bye bye...  EARTHWORM JIM, a glorious 9-9-0 fighter, 
has passed away.  Gee, too bad THE FUNNY FARM.  Titanium shields and bamboo daggers, 
guess what brave team is developing these kinds of weapons?   
     There's got to be a better place in NIANIA to get a drink than Jim's Tap Room!  
Any suggestions?  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 Clemens

Hemlock -- Oh, cheese.  I suppose it's an honor to fight the duelmaster, but I'm not
in your class.  As I demonstrated. -- Lorinda

Ghandi -- There comes a point beyond which training stats doesn't do you much good.
Go for the skills, man! -- Harkranz
P.S.  Assuming you haven't burned them all.

Enrko Fermi -- I suppose Harkranz has a point, but why should we CARE if you Wusses
get better or not?  It's about time we met with some easy wins, after all. --
Helenadere

Desmond Tutu -- Toe-ups?  I suppose they make sense to you, but in the middle of a
fight?  Better not. -- Fredililla

Jean Paul Satre -- Eat cold steel, you Wuss! -- Tarimez
P.S.  At this time of year, cold is the only way steel comes, unless you're a smith.
