                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, KOLACT?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed 
to see CHICKEN WING win a fight and gain 18 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, CHICKEN WING 
beat MUGSY and MUGSY lost 15 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  Looks like KOLACT 
has some guts at least, CENSORSHIP the Duelmaster was this turn's most-challenged 
warrior.  SCARFACE challenged KOLACT's Duelmaster for a shot at the throne.  And if 
variety is the spice of life, KOLACT may be getting bland, as CENSORSHIP 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!   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.  
ABOMINATION, 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 who led the way in this mass act of 
cowardice?  Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It was THE CLUB.  Ha ha ha ha!   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for KOLACT's 
morgue.  More variety.  And what a stunning loss we have here, boys and girls, ANIMAL 
HOUSE of BACON MAKIN' has added the final loss to hers 12-15-0.  Tee hee!  Titanium 
shields and bamboo daggers, guess what brave team is developing these kinds of 
weapons?   
     What does the KOLACT 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!  I see the crowds are getting restless, I 
must leave now-- Snide Clemens

P.S.  Since I didn't quite finish, would you like to go into it, so to speak, in a
private setting?
