                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
KALTOS brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Later days, THE MIDDLE WAY 5, since 
EVEREST LLP took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  Now let's all 
watch EVEREST LLP's heads swell from their 5-0-0 this turn.  Haa ha ha ha!  Big 
shots, big talk, big deal.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed to see ANGUS win 
a fight and gain 22 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, ANGUS beat INGOLD KERR and INGOLD 
KERR lost 5 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  Due to absence, and inability to 
defend the throne, FAST FORWARD has lost the Title of Duelmaster.  Start setting that 
alarm earlier!  And it's out with the old, in with the new, as THE IMPECCABLE PIG 
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, KALTOS?   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.  
PARTY ANIMALS, I suppose you'll be glad to know you were this turn's most avoided 
team.  Care to know who is the most afraid of you?  And it looks like JUST DON'T CARE 
avoided them the most this turn.  What a pack of would be losers, if you ask me.  
Hmph.  Ooh, I'm frightfully impressed, HOFFA 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.  Bye bye, warrior, bye bye...  FERGHAN HOHL, a 
glorious 9-21-0 fighter, has passed away.  Gee, too bad THE MIDDLE WAY 5.  Titanium 
shields and bamboo daggers, guess what brave team is developing these kinds of 
weapons?   
     There's got to be a better place in KALTOS to get a drink than The Victory 
Tavern!  Any suggestions?  Just wait 'till next time I show up here, I won't be so 
nice!  So nyaaah!  I see the crowds are getting restless, I must leave now-- Snide

Electric Sheep -- It's too HOT for electric blankets today. -- Ferghan Hohl

Kung-Fu Master -- Damn, I thought I had you with those cutting parries of mine, and
then you up and did, I dunno, some kind of weird stuff with your ki, and down I went.
-- Chester Egg

It seems strange to see a cat (the Ambitious Guard is Aruaki) trying to bash.  I
suppose it's no wonder he did badly at it. -- Ingold Kerr

I've got to protest the actions of the arena orderlies.  I had the Userous Merchant
DOWN, by my own efforts, and they rushed out before I could go through his pockets.
They probably wanted to check his pockets THEMSELVES, even though THEY didn't do the
work. -- Erloi Gill

What would I want with an orc? -- Norle Parth

ATTENTION ALL YOU ALLIANCE-TYPE PEOPLE:
For the purposes of tourney newsletter alliance listings (when I am able to do them),
you may only be listed in ONE alliance.  In other words, you have to choose!  If you
are a part of Englebert's Alliance and Englebert's Alliance is "part" of Ruthrauf's
Alliance, I will list you EITHER as part of Englebert's Alliance OR as part of
Ruthrauf's Alliance, NOT both.  The default would be the top-level alliance,
Ruthrauf's, in this example.  If you'd rather be listed separately, let me know and I
will do so, but that will be the only listing you get. -- The Saint, keeper of ever-
more-complicated lists
