                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, JHELUM?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Later days, DOGS OF WAR, since HARMONY 
took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  F BALLS turned their 2-1-0 
turn into a 5th place rank in the listings this turn.  Any better than this, and you 
get put on hit lists.  Gee, I'm impressed, a 4-1-0 is nice, but don't get cocky, 
HARMONY, the Fates teach humility, and the Fates are proud.  Of course, we're all 
terribly impressed to see FORK BALL win a fight and gain 13 points, terribly.  Tsk, 
tsk, FORK BALL beat TRILL and TRILL lost 8 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  Going 
for broke or broken, our Duelmaster VANGUARD challenged this turn.  And it's out with 
the old, in with the new, as VANGUARD 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, JHELUM?   
     My mother always told me, 'If you don't have anything nice to say, start 
talking.' I loved that woman.  What's the big D?  F BALLS was the most avoided team?  
Bunch of lily livered... grumble... mumble... curse...  And who led the way in this 
mass act of cowardice?  Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It was DREAMERS.  Ha ha ha 
ha!  VANGUARD was challenged more times this turn than the Duelmaster.  Now was the 
DM insulted or feared?  Heh, heh.   
     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.  Consider TAZ gone, and FURY'S EDGE 
unfeeling, letting the bloodfeud for his death go unrevenged.  Titanium shields and 
bamboo daggers, guess what brave team is developing these kinds of weapons?   
     There's got to be a better place in JHELUM to get a drink than The Dripping 
Blade!  Any suggestions?  Phlllt!  Just had to do that before I leave the fine city 
of JHELUM.  I feel much better now.  Paste this one in your scrapbooks, you'll need 
the kindling come this winter-- Snide Clemens
