                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
ARKERS brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Later days, PEASANT REBELLION, since 
STEEL PROPHETS took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  Of course, 
we're all terribly impressed to see PORT-A-FORTRESS win a fight and gain 18 points, 
terribly.  Tsk, tsk, PORT-A-FORTRESS beat PENNY and PENNY lost 13 points.  You're 
breakin' my heart.  And if variety is the spice of life, ARKERS may be getting bland, 
as IMA SLAYER stays top dog in the city.  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, ARKERS?   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.  ARKERS, 
I am losing what little hope I had in you.  STAR HUNTER the most avoided team?  What 
insult will suffice, I cannot say.  And it looks like THE CHOSEN avoided them the 
most this turn.  What a pack of would be losers, if you ask me.  Hmph.  ORVILLE ROUSE 
was challenged more times this turn than the Duelmaster.  Now was the DM insulted or 
feared?  Heh, heh.   
     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.   
     What does the ARKERS arena have in common with the inns?  It's just as 
comfortable to sleep in either place.  Ha ha ha ha!  Well, I've had enough of this 
drivel, and I'm sure you have too.  Off like a dirty shirt of padded leather.  I see 
the crowds are getting restless, I must leave now-- Snide Clemens

Dingo McGee -- You won!! I will beat you, one day.  I need to be smarter. -- Crusher

Orville Rouse -- You and me love to fight each other.  I won five, you won zero.
Let's you and me team up and go to the top? -- Shield

Ocean Size -- Farts?  Yes, that is right and the different thing I said.  You and I
have the same point.  Race you up to the top? -- Silent One

Thor Warrior -- How's it feel to be "Dumed"?  Bwaaahahahahaha! -- HoD

Shikari -- Actually, I was having a bad day and I was imitating a gladiator, poorly.
the next time it won't be so easy -- HoD

Crusher -- And what did you learn?  Kind regards, Dingo.
P.S.  Boom!

Ocean Size -- Oh, you are just horrible.  Are you proud of yourself?  Do your parents
know what you do? -- Blue Flak

Bladehunter -- What was that?  I mean seriously, what WAS that? -- T.V.

Ria the Caresser -- Bad luck!  Like the song says, "I'm sorry it went down like this,
but someone had to lose." -- Pain Magnet

Sweet Revenge -- That's funny, you didn't look like a defensive style.  You were my
second choice anyway. -- Shikari

Penny -- Nice move.  You know.  The way you gave the title to one of your team mates.
I call shenanigans.  I guess Ima Slayer is my new target. -- Port-A-Fortress

Ima Slayer -- Gee, I wish I could fight an NPC.  And get the title no less!  No, it
isn't a cheap shot.  I am sick of fighting the Middle Way every turn! -- Lionik

Imerta Loel -- Well, you've gotten faster.  Fortunately, those repeat shots to the
forehead woke me up and reminded me that I am a fighter. -- Lionik

All -- We're running late (what else is new?), so no personals from us this month,
sorry. -- those who walk the Middle Way
P.S.  Besides, 1-3 is nothing to talk about.
