                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
KOLACT brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Gee, I'm impressed, a 4-1-1 is nice, 
but don't get cocky, SPRINGBORN, the Fates teach humility, and the Fates are proud.  
Of course, we're all terribly impressed to see WANDA win a fight and gain 20 points, 
terribly.  Tsk, tsk, KHALHUMS DWARF beat SIR ENDER and SIR ENDER lost 10 points.  
You're breakin' my heart.  And if variety is the spice of life, KOLACT may be getting 
bland, as QUO VADIS stays top dog in the city.  Kickbacks and bribes, kickbacks and 
bribes, how else do you think some of these guys win their fights?  Skill?  Ha!   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.   
     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.  Whoa!  I'll even buy SADIE a drink 
tonight!  Anyone who can come back from the Dark Arena, I want to be on hers good 
side!  And what a stunning loss we have here, boys and girls, MOONDAY of THE MOONDOGS 
has added the final loss to his 10-20-0.  Tee hee!  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 KOLACT to get a drink than Don Corleone's!  
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

All -- Just not my naturally gabby self this cycle.  But I'm getting over it. --
Still

Quasimodo -- You're ugly and not NORMAL, and this is BAD.  And then you defeated me,
and this is REALLY BAD.  Damn. -- Actaon

Sir Cophagus -- No!  I'm not ready for one of those. -- Estrella
P.S.  Besides, if--and that's a big IF--I ever DO need one, I want something really
CLASSY.  Marble, at least, not a crummy old hollowed-out log.

Wald- -- HA-O!  I-o got-o it back-o from yu! -- Mnoday-O

     This vowel napping certainly does confuse things, doesn't it? -- Ed.

Sir Cumference -- If you're making a crack about my waist, you can FORGET it.  I
never waste anything. -- Cynica

Laughter -- Bwa-ha-ha! -- Callisto

To those involved, no, I have not abandoned your stories.  But I've been letting them
drift, and that has to stop, so I am taking the time to make sure that I know where
they are going, more than just "what happens next" dreamed up on the fly, before
resuming work on them.  No new stories will be started until at least one of the old
ones has concluded, for the same reason:  quantity can't substitute for quality.
Your patience in this matter is appreciated. -- the Scribe
