                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, RIZTAB?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  If this keeps up, ALL HALLOW'S EVE, 
you'll have to shine swords instead of use them.  A drop of 5 in the rankings?  ARENA 
FELINES turned their 4-1-1 turn into a 2nd 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 TOM win a fight and gain 18 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, TOM beat 
LUCKY and LUCKY lost 15 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And if variety is the 
spice of life, RIZTAB may be getting bland, as CRITIAS 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!   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.  
LUCKY was challenged more times this turn than the Duelmaster.  Now was the DM 
insulted or feared?  Heh, heh.   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  It's about time THE MONK got beat for picking on 
warriors like ORIOLA.  Bravo, SWEET MAGIC.  See you at The Welcome Wench.  Titanium 
shields and bamboo daggers, guess what brave team is developing these kinds of 
weapons?   
     What does the RIZTAB 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

Garfield!  Good to see you again.  I knew we needed some arena felines around here,
the mice are getting too bold. -- Jorja, Sweet Magic

Lucky -- Well, of course I was unable to cope with chaos.  Why do you think I arrange
my cookies in neat layers?  Got keep the universe in line. -- Oriola

Catfish Hunter -- Fish?  No.  Our "thing" is sweets.  Sure, I've heard that at some
time someone on this team made gyros for some of the Dreamers, but basically, sweets.
Cookies, cakes, candies, sometimes ice cream.  Not meat, usually, and not FISH.
Euwh.  But... we might get in some catnip.  We do use herbs and spices. -- Lirodencra

Blinkeralwayson -- I hope someone spills hot chocolate in your lap. -- Koko Leah

Tom -- You're... a GOLEM?  How can that be?  You should be a large, handsome cat (NOT
neutered, good gods!), maybe tiger-striped. -- Taffy

Herbie Hancock -- Blue?  No, probably not.  We don't actually see much blue in our
ingredients, you know.  Maybe blueberries, but who wants to cook with blueberries? --
Teresianna
