                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, NIANIA?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed 
to see BIG BIRD win a fight and gain 15 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, UETHINRIA beat 
GNU RECRUIT and GNU RECRUIT lost 6 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And if variety 
is the spice of life, NIANIA may be getting bland, as CHARLIE HORSE stays top dog in 
the city.  Jim's Tap Room, humph!  I've tasted better ale at mortuaries.  Where do 
they get this stuff?  From NIANIA's trash dumps?   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.  
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 THE FUNNY FARM 
avoided them the most this turn.  What a pack of would be losers, if you ask me.  
Hmph.   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  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 NIANIA to get a drink than Jim's Tap Room!  
Any suggestions?  Phlllt!  Just had to do that before I leave the fine city of 
NIANIA.  I feel much better now.  Glad to see the back of this place-- Snide Clemens

Skidmark Bug -- Didn't you study the food chain?  Birds eat bugs! -- Big Bird

     Which may explain why birds are weird.

Gnu Recruit -- I don't have my bionic implants in yet. -- Robot Chicken

Novgorodny Vir, a humble servant?  As if!

Four more Dark Arena deaths.  This town is getting fierce!  Or at least some of the
arena managers are, the town was always fierce.  Go, Niania!

Serpent2 -- Ask me if I care?  Since I'm leaving, what do I need with wins?  Good
luck to you, and all that kind of stuff. -- Fredililla
P.S.  Actually, I'm not going to the Isle, I'd just be one second-rater among
thousands.  But I'm also not going to stay here in this damned swamp.  I think...
Jhans, maybe.  I'll start a restaurant.  Y'all are invited, but that doesn't mean a
free meal.  Maybe a one-time discount.

Fang -- I suppose it's the "graduation syndrome" thing.  Win, lose, die, it doesn't
matter to me today, so I slack off.  Which is not to belittle your effort, mind. --
Lorinda, who plans on buying shares in a winery near Cliffhome and selling to Fredi's
restaurant

Gnu I Knew -- The fans have made their allegiance clear:  they like me better than
you, even though you won.  I give them a better show, not to mention a free beer now
and then. -- Harkranz

Stupid Guns -- And luck is ALL it was, trust me on this. -- Kinthira
P.S.  And watch out my fans don't mug you in a dark alley.

Fighting a Convicted Thief is kind of low, but at least *I* won my fight. --
Uethinria
