                                      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.  THE GOLDEN FISH turned their 3-2-0 
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 JORMP JUMPER 
win a fight and gain 14 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, GENERAL PATTERN beat ONE LEG 
LEAP and ONE LEG LEAP lost 1 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And it's out with 
the old, in with the new, as ANSWER PACK takes the Title and last week's bar tab from 
the old Duelmaster.  Heh, heh.  Jim's Tap Room, humph!  I've tasted better ale at 
mortuaries.  Where do they get this stuff?  From NIANIA's trash dumps?   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.  NIANIA, 
I am losing what little hope I had in you.  RUMBLE FROGS the most avoided team?  What 
insult will suffice, I cannot say.  And who led the way in this mass act of 
cowardice?  Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It was THE RUNAROUND.  Ha ha ha ha!  Ooh, 
I'm frightfully impressed, ARCHED EYELID was this turn's most challenged warrior.  
Watch that ego swell, sports fans.   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  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
