                                      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, DREAMERS, since SWEET MAGIC 
took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  Gee, I'm impressed, a 3-1-0 
is nice, but don't get cocky, BLUE NOTE, the Fates teach humility, and the Fates are 
proud.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed to see HERBIE HANCOCK win a fight and 
gain 14 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, HERBIE HANCOCK beat HERMIAS and HERMIAS lost 10 
points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And it's out with the old, in with the new, as 
MAC THE SPOON 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!   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.  What's 
the big D?  THE SYNDICATE was the most avoided team?  Bunch of lily livered... 
grumble... mumble... curse...  And it looks like KAOS FROGS 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.  Titanium shields and bamboo daggers, guess what brave team is 
developing these kinds of weapons?   
     There's got to be a better place in RIZTAB to get a drink than The Swinging 
Aardvark!  Any suggestions?  Phlllt!  Just had to do that before I leave the fine 
city of RIZTAB.  I feel much better now.  Paste this one in your scrapbooks, you'll 
need the kindling come this winter-- Snide Clemens

Oriola -- Good battle, may you find your way to the Isle.  Oh, if you have an itch,
do not hesitate to scratch it. -- Itchy Froggy

Koko -- Naturally, the way I fight I think I have mud in each eye; thus, the two
muds. -- Mud Mud Frog

Taffy -- Why you, I expected to spin and twist and dance, not get stuck in Taffy. --
Mud Mud

All -- So who wishes a shot at the mighty Itchy? -- Your DM, Itchy Froggy

Itchy Froggy -- Listen, this is IMPORTANT:  I am NOT A MELON! -- Oriola the Indignant

Mud Mud Frog -- Wow, it worked!  They told me if I used this thickener stuff, it
would SET your mud and make it firm.  I didn't really think it would, but what did I
have to lose, huh?  So I tried it, and it WORKED.  Wow. -- Taffy
P.S.  It's supposed to wear off in an hour or so, which I figure means you'll be
okay.

Zagga the Claw is a slave to his stomach.  Easy to beguile. -- Nelli Politana

P.S.  I even made it with blue ribbons.
