                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, TRANSEL?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Later days, MEDAL OF HONOR B6, since 
MACHINES OF WAR took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  Now let's 
all watch KREWE OF DRUID's heads swell from their 4-1-2 this turn.  Haa ha ha ha!  
Big shots, big talk, big deal.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed to see 
RASCALS win a fight and gain 23 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, SATURN beat GRUNT 29 and 
GRUNT 29 lost 16 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  FORLORN challenged TRANSEL's 
Duelmaster for a shot at the throne.  And if variety is the spice of life, TRANSEL 
may be getting bland, as GEN. JACKSON stays top dog in the city.  The Victory Tavern, 
humph!  I've tasted better ale at mortuaries.  Where do they get this stuff?  From 
TRANSEL's trash dumps?   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.  What's 
the big D?  KREWE OF DRUID 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 BALTO.  Ha ha ha ha!  Ooh, I'm frightfully 
impressed, HOFFA was this turn's most challenged warrior.  Watch that ego swell, 
sports fans.   
     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.  Nipped in the bud, you might say, was 
HAROLD MOON of MEDAL OF HONOR B6 this turn.  Course, I wouldn't say that, so much as 
have a belly laugh.  Heh heh.  Honor is like a chainmail shirt, it only shines 
through use.  Certain nameless cowards will doubtless rebuke me on this one.   
     There's got to be a better place in TRANSEL to get a drink than The Victory 
Tavern!  Any suggestions?  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
