                                      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.  Later days, THE CLUB, since 
ABOMINATION took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  If this keeps 
up, THE CLUB, you'll have to shine swords instead of use them.  A drop of 4 in the 
rankings?  EVERYDAY PEOPLE turned their 2-1-0 turn into a 4th 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 ANN OREXIA win a fight and gain 16 points, 
terribly.  Tsk, tsk, ANN OREXIA beat ADDAI and ADDAI lost 12 points.  You're breakin' 
my heart.  Due to absence, and inability to defend the throne, SCARFACE has lost the 
Title of Duelmaster.  Start setting that alarm earlier!  And it's out with the old, 
in with the new, as WILD THINGS takes the Title and last week's bar tab from the old 
Duelmaster.  Heh, heh.  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.  
KOLACT, I am losing what little hope I had in you.  THE CLUB the most avoided team?  
What insult will suffice, I cannot say.  And it looks like EVERYDAY PEOPLE avoided 
them the most this turn.  What a pack of would be losers, if you ask me.  Hmph.   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  We're all going to die in the end, so why worry if 
the fate catches up with you sooner that later?   
     I was about to buy a new quill pen the other day, but some fighter took it for 
an epee.  Forgive me for writing with a dagger.  Phlllt!  Just had to do that before 
I leave the fine city of KOLACT.  I feel much better now.  Paste this one in your 
scrapbooks, you'll need the kindling come this winter-- Snide Clemens
