                                      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.  SWEET MAGIC turned their 4-1-0 turn 
into a 3rd 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 GAZZA win a fight 
and gain 29 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, HELIODORUS beat SKELETON and SKELETON lost 
13 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And if variety is the spice of life, RIZTAB 
may be getting bland, as AESARA 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.   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  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 Warty Toad!  
Any suggestions?  Phlllt!  Just had to do that before I leave the fine city of 
RIZTAB.  I feel much better now.  Glad to see the back of this place-- Snide Clemens
