                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
TRANSEL brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Later days, WINGED LEGION, since HI 
ROLLERS took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  HI ROLLERS turned 
their 4-0-1 turn into a 1st 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 
DOMINO win a fight and gain 17 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, DOMINO beat FORLORN and 
FORLORN lost 15 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  Looks like TRANSEL has some guts 
at least, HOFFA the Duelmaster was this turn's most-challenged warrior.  And if 
variety is the spice of life, TRANSEL may be getting bland, as HOFFA 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?   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.  
What's the big D?  KREWE OF DRUID was the most avoided team?  Bunch of lily 
livered... grumble... mumble... curse...  And it looks like DARK PANTHEON avoided 
them the most this turn.  What a pack of would be losers, if you ask me.  Hmph.   
     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.  Honor is like a chainmail shirt, it only 
shines through use.  Certain nameless cowards will doubtless rebuke me on this one.   
     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.  Just wait 'till next time I show up 
here, I won't be so nice!  So nyaaah!  Glad to see the back of this place-- Snide

personal ad so you know there is at least someone out here playing. -- Doc Steele

     I know, but sometimes all the blank space on my screen gets me down.  That and
