                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, ZUKAL?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed 
to see SCALES win a fight and gain 17 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, ARDSHEAL beat 
GLINDORA and GLINDORA lost 13 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And it's out with 
the old, in with the new, as BLUE FUNK 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, ZUKAL?   
     My mother always told me, 'If you don't have anything nice to say, start 
talking.' I loved that woman.  SERPENTS HOLD 3, 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 DEVIATION avoided them the most this turn.  What a pack of would be 
losers, if you ask me.  Hmph.  Ooh, I'm frightfully impressed, FANG 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.  Consider FREDDIE gone, and QUEEN 
unfeeling, letting the bloodfeud for his death go unrevenged.  We're all going to die 
in the end, so why worry if the fate catches up with you sooner that later?   
     There's got to be a better place in ZUKAL to get a drink than The Blue Boar Inn! 
Any suggestions?  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
