                                      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.  Later days, BLUE NOTE, since TORTURED 
took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  TORTURED turned their 2-0-0 
turn into a 1st 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 TATUM win a 
fight and gain 16 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, AESARA beat CHARLENE and CHARLENE lost 
6 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And if variety is the spice of life, RIZTAB may 
be getting bland, as ELEVENTH stays top dog in the city.  The Dripping Blade, humph!  
I've tasted better ale at mortuaries.  Where do they get this stuff?  From RIZTAB's 
trash dumps?   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.  What's 
the big D?  SWEET MAGIC was the most avoided team?  Bunch of lily livered... 
grumble... mumble... curse...  And who led the way in this mass act of cowardice?  
Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It was TORTURED.  Ha ha ha ha!   
     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?   
     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
