                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
RIZTAB brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Now keep the taverns open late 
tonight, for there are sorrows to drown for ICE AGE, whose 0-2-0 this turn dropped 
them by 4 into 8th.  Ha!  Of course, we're all terribly impressed to see BACARDI 
LIMON win a fight and gain 23 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, BACARDI LIMON beat BIG 
SHRIMP and BIG SHRIMP lost 22 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  HUME Dark Arena 
Challenged SPYMASTER TORRIC for RIZTAB's Title this turn, and guess what happened?  
And if variety is the spice of life, RIZTAB may be getting bland, as HUME stays top 
dog in the city.  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, RIZTAB?   
     My mother always told me, 'If you don't have anything nice to say, start 
talking.' I loved that woman.  THE UNDEAD, 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 STEEL THUNDER avoided them the most this turn.  What a pack of would be 
losers, if you ask me.  Hmph.  Ooh, I'm frightfully impressed, KRANKYKARL was this 
turn's most challenged warrior.  Watch that ego swell, sports fans.   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for RIZTAB's 
morgue.  More variety.  DREAMERS has cause to pause today, as HUME was sent to the 
Dark Arena, and came back--though not in the best of moods, I'll wager.  Whoa!  I'll 
even buy LEIBNIZ a drink tonight!  Anyone who can come back from the Dark Arena, I 
want to be on his good side!  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.  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 Clemens

Boneyard -- There seems to be more to you than just strewn bones.  Oh well, so much
for the record...but then perfection isn't all it's cracked-up to be.  Just ask Dex.
Ha! -- Missy Mossy

Big Shrimp -- Gaaaaaa, I've been "Cold Shrimped" by Mr. Big. -- Dexter

Hume -- We keep trading off the top prize like this, somebody's going to graduate. --
Krankykarl

The portcullis went up, the drawbridge came down, and boldly Sir George strode forth.
Eh, sometimes you get the dragon and sometimes the dragon gets you.

Brother Zen -- You're a cultist?  Very strange. -- Sweet Betsey
P.S.  And no, I did NOT appreciate your attempts to strangle me with three pounds of
flax.

Egros -- Actually, you did NOT beg well.  I don't think you even tried.  Which is
fine, because I don't like beggars. -- Winter Shadows
P.S.  But if you want me to come lay a cool hand on your brow in the Infirmary, I
could probably manage that.

Jasper -- Hmm.  I have always rather liked jasper as a stone.  As a competitor...no.
I'll pass on another match. -- Tariliss

Parmenides?  That's a new one on us.  We'll have to look it up.  Good try, though,
and thanks for the win, I was beginning to wonder what one of those felt like. --
Tiannary

The Bezerker -- That's a new one, too.  Betsey says you must be someone who slams
stones into bezels (she had some vague point about ells and arrs being "almost twins"
which I didn't understand at all) and heck with whether they shatter or not, but
Tariliss claims you're a specialist in hitting people on the beezer.  Which is it? --
Corianelle
P.S.  And Jorja says your name is a typo and you'll probably pop your cork at our
speculations.

Our congratulations to Hume and Leibniz. -- Jorja and Sweet Magic

Big Joe's Big Toe -- I hate it when that happens. -- Sibata the Thief

I have not been receiving my physical turns in a reliable manner lately.  If there
are diplos with the turns that go missing, they're gone for good.  So if you send me
a diplo and do not see an acknowledgement of receipt in the personals, know that I
have not gotten it (yet).  If you have email, contact me at Livia AT reality DOT com.
If you don't have email, keep trying with the diplos.  We are working on this
problem. -- the Scribe/Jorja/Leeta
P.S.  If you email me, put "Re DM" on the subject line.
