                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, TRANSEL?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  MEDAL OF HONOR Y2 turned their 2-2-1 
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 BIG BILL 
BROONZY win a fight and gain 11 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, BIG BILL BROONZY beat 
DOOPHUS and DOOPHUS lost 12 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And if variety is the 
spice of life, TRANSEL may be getting bland, as JOE WILLIAMS 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.   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  Titanium shields and bamboo daggers, guess what brave 
team is developing these kinds of weapons?   
     What does the TRANSEL arena have in common with the inns?  It's just as 
comfortable to sleep in either place.  Ha ha ha ha!  Just wait 'till next time I show 
up here, I won't be so nice!  So nyaaah!  Paste this one in your scrapbooks, you'll 
need the kindling come this winter-- Snide Clemens
