                                      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.  BIG SHOTS turned their 2-2-0 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 PULPER win a fight 
and gain 14 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, PULPER beat CRYING FIRE and CRYING FIRE lost 
7 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  Due to absence, and inability to defend the 
throne, BIRGITTE has lost the Title of Duelmaster.  Start setting that alarm earlier! 
And it's out with the old, in with the new, as BLACK DEATH 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?   
     My mother always told me, 'If you don't have anything nice to say, start 
talking.' I loved that woman.  BIG SHOTS, 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 HISTORICAL KOLACT avoided them the most this turn.  What a pack of would 
be losers, if you ask me.  Hmph.  SKUNK CREEK was challenged more times this turn 
than the Duelmaster.  Now was the DM insulted or feared?  Heh, heh.  Now here's guts 
and stupidity all rolled into one, RON SANTO challenged up 28 to take on GOODY 
TWOSHOES of HISTORICAL KOLACT.  Not that I'm surprised or anything, but RON SANTO was 
subdued by GOODY TWOSHOES, leaving the latter lower for recognition points.   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  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.  Phlllt!  Just had to do that before 
I leave the fine city of KALTOS.  I feel much better now.  Glad to see the back of 
this place-- Snide Clemens

One-four.  Damn.  And the only win is that... PERSON, Ugly Walt, over a standby!
Where have we gone wrong? -- Oswald Quorn
P.S.  Okay, one good place to start looking for "that was a bad move" is: when we
decided to become gladiators.  But it's a bad job market, and any job that pays
enough to live on is a good job, by definition.
