                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, OSKSI?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed 
to see BLACK MAGIC win a fight and gain 53 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, SHARAN KHOR 
beat SOLDIER #1 and SOLDIER #1 lost 16 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  The 
Elefont, humph!  I've tasted better ale at mortuaries.  Where do they get this stuff? 
From OSKSI's trash dumps?   
     My mother always told me, 'If you don't have anything nice to say, start 
talking.' I loved that woman.  OSKSI, I am losing what little hope I had in you.  
SORCERY COVENANT 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 FRAT PARTY BLOWOUT.  Ha ha ha ha!  Ooh, I'm frightfully impressed, YATZEE was 
this turn's most challenged warrior.  Watch that ego swell, sports fans.  ALFJAR was 
challenged by one of SORCERY COVENANT's warriors this turn, with ULDI SHOON having a 
lead of 26 points going into the fight.  And golly gee, ULDI SHOON subdued ALFJAR.  
Aren't we all surprised and impressed?  And we have FLAGPOLE PANTIES in a challenge, 
going down 15 points for the fight.  Guess what?  I thought FLAGPOLE PANTIES showed 
great skill and promise when he overcame YATZEE.  All right, so I slept through it!  
Big deal!   
     Ah, now we come to my favorite part, where we see all the guys who are dead and 
gone, and get to see if their team cared.  And what a stunning loss we have here, 
boys and girls, MUMBLEDY PEG of GAMES LIBRARY has added the final loss to hers 
10-11-0.  Tee hee!  We're all going to die in the end, so why worry if the fate 
catches up with you sooner that later?   
     I was about to buy a new quill pen the other day, but some fighter took it for 
an epee.  Forgive me for writing with a dagger.  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

Venomous Concubine -- Wow, you really are easy. -- Elwerth

Mitochondriac -- Shortest Golem I have ever seen; well done. -- Cirrus

Soldier #2 -- Keep practicing. -- Kloabr

Farewell, Osksi. -- Notthur

Buri -- Yeah, eight years, more or less. -- Visionist

Happy Apple -- I don't "get" your name, dear.  Can you explain it to me, or would it
be to embarrassing?  I know that when you boys party, sometimes there are things you
wouldn't tell an old aunt. -- Hearts

Flagpole Panties -- You just give me a whole different idea of dwarves.  Before
meeting you, I would never, ever have expected, well, you know.  It just seems so
frivolous, and I always thought dwarves were such serious types.  Glad to know I was
wrong on that. -- Mumbledy Peg, always glad to meet a party boy

Soldier #3 -- And what's behind door number TWO, eh? -- Sharan Khor

Yatzee -- Listen, when I roll the dice for you to go down, you're supposed to do it.
Don't make me hit you more. -- Yatzee

Otis -- (pie-eyed look)  Somehow I expected you to be an owl.  Can you hoot? --
Domino Joe

Mitochondriac -- That's okay.  I don't much like to play dominoes, either.  It's just
a name. -- Domino Joe

Kung-Fu Redneck -- Actually, it's a li-BERRY.  A kind of bush with dry, tasteless
berries. -- Domino Joe

Alfjar -- Yes, dear, but they all say that. -- Hearts

Elwerth -- This is true.  Had I been less lucky, I might have ended up being the son
of an elf, which would never do. -- Felkan the Tall, Khalhums Dwarf
P.S.  But be careful how you speak of my mother.

Notthur -- Bedrest is always good.  I try to get some every night. -- Lo, Master of
Kung-Fu

5 November 2005
It is with a proud heart that I announce the newest member of the Desolate Empire

Desolate Empire.  May he be blessed with victory and courage.  May his enemies' blood
flow freely! -- The Dark Knights Wasby and Toker
