                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, warriors of JHELUM!  Once again I've been called out of retirement 
for my abilities and insights into Spyreporting.  Woof!  ARENA FELINES were a bunch 
of dogs after DOGS OF WAR got through with 'em!  3rd ain't so sweet as 1st!  Some 
people say I ramble too much, I don't say anything relevant.  I repeat myself.  I 
ramble.  Well FORCE OF FIVE moved up 1, to 5th.  What's with LEGALASS?  He actually 
beat JHELUM's VETERAN MERCENARY, and walked away with 19 more points from the fight.  
Laughs were big at FORCE OF FIVE while they watched SUPER JACOB clobber HOWARD.  He 
lost 16 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  ARENA FELINES' 
hatred of THE SHALLOWSHIP surfaced again as ALL LICKERED UP challenged JHELUM's top 
dog.  I can barely restrain my enthusiam for ARENA FELINES' outstanding member, 
Duelmaster ALL LICKERED UP.  Advice to fighters with a 1 will--give up fighting!   
     If at first you don't succeed, avoid.  That'll get you in the Spyreports.  The 
most avoided team was DOGS OF WAR.  Management must be dealin', as the boys at F 
BALLS ain't reelin'!  DOGS OF WAR's mad!  How well I know the feeling of being the 
most challenged warrior, JIMMY CUSTER!  Don't make idle boasts, they may come back to 
haunt you.   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  Is it my imagination, or are fighters getting 
younger every day?  To die so young, so gloriously!   
     Many other cities have retirement homes for aged warriors.  Any plans here?  
JHELUM is a nice place to live, but I don't like to live in nice places.  I don't 
want to overstay my welcome...-- Olaf Modeen

Fork Ball -- Listen, I know you dwarves are weird, but a ball of forks?  Like a sort
of...a mechanical hedgehog type of thing?  Or a giant caltrop to toss into the mouths
of monsters?  I'm just not getting this "fork ball" business. -- Jimmy Custer

Aragant -- I was going to say that you are a fool, and then laugh heartlessly, but I
just didn't have the heart to do it.  You probably ARE a fool, so would I be to
gladiate except that I'm a golem and it's what I was made for.  But you're stuck with
it, and what's the point of laughing? -- Howard

Legalass -- Oh.  I thought, well, suspenders.  Good things, suspenders, BUT, if you
get a cut in the wrong place, your pants could fall down.  Always wear both. --
Epimonidas

Persistent Beggar?  Bah!  I'd like to see HIM on an elephant! -- Hannibal

Fast Ball -- Ah...right.  Fast.  Yes, I noticed that.  I didn't see the "ball" part,
but the fast, yes.  Definitely. -- Challon
