                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
MALCORN brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Later days, DR. SEUSS, since 
TERMINUS took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  Of course, we're 
all terribly impressed to see STOLEYOURSPOT win a fight and gain 22 points, terribly. 
Tsk, tsk, MIYAMOTO beat MOSSROCK and MOSSROCK lost 15 points.  You're breakin' my 
heart.  SOMNAMBULANT challenged STRADA for MALCORN's Title this turn, and guess what 
happened?  And it's out with the old, in with the new, as STRADA takes the Title and 
last week's bar tab from the old Duelmaster.  Heh, heh.  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, 
MALCORN?   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.  
MALCORN, I am losing what little hope I had in you.  STARBASE 5 the most avoided 
team?  What insult will suffice, I cannot say.  And who led the way in this mass act 
of cowardice?  Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It was TERMINUS.  Ha ha ha ha!  
MOSSROCK 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.  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.  Phlllt!  Just had to do that before 
I leave the fine city of MALCORN.  I feel much better now.  Paste this one in your 
scrapbooks, you'll need the kindling come this winter-- Snide Clemens

ISITWALENGCENGCE -- Glad that's over with.  Vorn's widow and my manager are both
satisfied. -- Avery

The Sentinel -- About time Miyamoto won against your team. -- Carick

Bet Twice -- You go from one of the least popular warriors in Malcorn to this week's
favorite after fighting me.  I think the fans in this city really have it out for me.
-- Quasil

What's with all the Embezzling Scribes this week?  Three in one week?  Is Lord
Malcorn's Court completely corrupt? -- Varick & Alryn

Yertle the Turtle -- You may not realize it yet, but you were lucky!  I was all set
to make turtle soup, and then you turned out to be a golem.  Not my kind of soup
beginning. -- Mossrock
P.S.  Although I do secretly admire your perfect gears.

Lutherax -- You try to nail me to a door, and I will have a certified FIT, I warn
you! -- Redbird

Simulacrum -- Darned Rirorni!  I knew we shouldn't have let you guys into the arena
system.  Drat. -- Stump

Avengelina -- Clever name, but a poor game.  As my mama used to say, "What if your
face freezes like that?"  You get stuck in an avenging mode, you'll miss a lot of the
fun stuff out of life. -- Wind Rider, prepared to show you some fun stuff even if you
do have a beard

Varpulis Rukh -- There's rukhs, and then there's... Rock Maple

Avery -- Always glad to oblige. -- Wind Rider

Quasil -- This could be a good plan. -- Rock Maple
