                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, RIZTAB?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Later days, HIGH JINKS, since THE UNDEAD 
took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  Of course, we're all 
terribly impressed to see BLAZE win a fight and gain 19 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, 
BLAZE beat MADAM Y and MADAM Y lost 14 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And it's 
out with the old, in with the new, as KRANKYKARL 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.  
RIZTAB, I am losing what little hope I had in you.  THE UNDEAD the most avoided team? 
What insult will suffice, I cannot say.  And it looks like CULTS-R-US avoided them 
the most this turn.  What a pack of would be losers, if you ask me.  Hmph.  MANGY 
POLECAT was challenged more times this turn than the Duelmaster.  Now was the DM 
insulted or feared?  Heh, heh.  I guess I can give a little credit to BULLHOG of 
STEEL THUNDER for challenging up by 22 to WINTER SHADOWS.  BULLHOG lost to get 45 
points of recognition.   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for RIZTAB's 
morgue.  More variety.  Not that I'll be buying the drinks, but I'll be glad to see 
IRONSTORM and STEEL THUNDER at The Swinging Aardvark tonight celebrating their 
bloodfeud victory over MANGY POLECAT.  Honor is like a chainmail shirt, it only 
shines through use.  Certain nameless cowards will doubtless rebuke me on this one.   
     There's got to be a better place in RIZTAB to get a drink than The Swinging 
Aardvark!  Any suggestions?  Just wait 'till next time I show up here, I won't be so 
nice!  So nyaaah!  Glad to see the back of this place-- Snide Clemens

Sweet Betsey -- Sweeeeet Betsey.  Win or lose I always hang around fer honors.
Soooo?  Which-a-dya-say...fancy lay-day?  Only time will tell. -- Missy Mossy

Ironstorm -- You see?  There's more to the ole Polecat n' any-bodies could have
foreseen. -- Mangy
P.S.  ...Tyger would'a laughed.

Hume -- That was as short a term as anyone's held top ranking in a while.  Hopefully
I got my message out.  Not mess-age, like what my girlfriend likes me to do to her
feet <esssh> but message, like I'm great, my father is great, my grandfather is
great.  He's a great grandfather.  That sort of thing. -- Krankykarl

Hurricane -- I came to the right place to learn about dishing out and taking
punishments.  You were a tad more on the receiving end than my humble self, but we're
all the better a teacher for it. -- Dexter

Madam Y -- Oh, well, I couldn't expect to defeat someone sophisticated and
knowledgeable like you, could I?  What with me just being a simple golem girl.  You
know, I don't get that golem thing.  I swear my mother never mentioned it!  What does
it MEAN, anyway?  Mom and Dad are both Shews, so I should be Shewish, too, right?  It
just doesn't make sense. -- Tariliss the confused Shewish golem

Missy Mossy -- Wow, GREAT skills for me!  Thanks a lot. -- Sweet Betsey
P.S.  I can see that you really are a golem.  Wood, it looks like, with moss on?
The...distribution pattern?  The way you wear your mosses is very pleasing to the
eye.

Kool-Aid Drinker -- YUCK-O!  And it was even "sugar free," which is MUCH worse.  Ack.
I know the janitors are going to be annoyed with me for spilling so much of it into
the sand--I guess it's like chewing gum as it "dries," and very hard to get rid of--
but I just couldn't stop myself.  I see kool-aid in any form (including "embodied,"

so to speak), and I just have to strike out. -- Winter Shadows
P.S.  Actually, Jorja gave us a minimum for our personals, and I had to think of
SOMETHING to spin it out.  But I really don't care for kool-aid.  Too sweet.

Democritus -- Wow, was it all YOUR fault?  I can see that it was a neat dream, but do
you think it's WORKING? -- Tiannary
P.S.  Oh, heck, the minimum.  Uh...maybe you dwarves are more rational and can make
it work?
P.P.S.  Or are you the one about everything being made of and breakable into little
tiny pieces?  I can never keep you guys straight.  Well, okay, I haven't TRIED much.

Sister Q -- Ah, but I'm trying to start a new trend, and I'm even willing to move to
the south pole for half the year to do it.  Ever winter! -- Winter Shadows

The Berserker -- You think you can make fun of me for being a short Shew?  Think
again. -- Khazrho the Zukali
P.S.  I'm taller than I look.

Ranfnagud -- Damn.  I thought somebody with a funny name would be easy.  My mistake.
-- Zagga the Claw
