                                      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.  CARDS turned their 3-1-0 turn into a 
4th place rank in the listings this turn.  Any better than this, and you get put on 
hit lists.  Now let's all watch SWEET MAGIC's heads swell from their 3-1-0 this turn. 
Haa ha ha ha!  Big shots, big talk, big deal.  Of course, we're all terribly 
impressed to see NANDI KENNA win a fight and gain 22 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, 
NANDI KENNA beat BLACK JACK and BLACK JACK lost 21 points.  You're breakin' my heart. 
And it's out with the old, in with the new, as CRITIAS takes the Title and last 
week's bar tab from the old Duelmaster.  Heh, heh.  The Swinging Aardvark, humph!  
I've tasted better ale at mortuaries.  Where do they get this stuff?  From RIZTAB's 
trash dumps?   
     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.  GUESSING GAME the most avoided 
team?  What insult will suffice, I cannot say.  And it looks like ALL HALLOW'S EVE 
avoided them the most this turn.  What a pack of would be losers, if you ask me.  
Hmph.   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for RIZTAB's 
morgue.  More variety.  Honor is like a chainmail shirt, it only shines through use.  
Certain nameless cowards will doubtless rebuke me on this one.   
     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.  Just wait 'till next time I show up 
here, I won't be so nice!  So nyaaah!  Paste this one in your scrapbooks, you'll need 
the kindling come this winter-- Snide Clemens

Twisted Clown -- And there it is, you won the title fair and, in a manner of
speaking, square, though the square was twisted more than a little.  Fair and curly?
I could make you twisted and curled and ruffled ribbon candy, if you like. --
Lorimera

Decomposed Cop -- You're disgusting.  I will pelt you with Fluffy Wuffy Squashy Washy
Coconut Marshmallow Puffs, than which few fates are less pleasing to the palate. --
Oriola, prefering an austere chocolate cookie with white frosting

Black Charge -- Everyone wants licorice!  What's up with that?  The stuff is fairly
yucky. -- Lirodencra

Chained Up Devil -- Drat, I didn't realize someone had raided the Yule supplies and
used paper chains on you! -- Nandi Kenna

Leatherface -- Sorry but I only have nightmares when I eat anchovy and pineapple
pizza right before bed, washing it down with hot cocoa.  And I didn't do that.  Of
course, I didn't WIN, either, but that's the way it goes.  I don't think I'm supposed
to win. -- Koko Leah
