                                      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.  Of course, we're all terribly 
impressed to see AVERY win a fight and gain 19 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, AVERY 
beat SIMULACRUM and SIMULACRUM lost 11 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And if 
variety is the spice of life, MALCORN may be getting bland, as QUASIL stays top dog 
in the city.  The Victory Tavern, humph!  I've tasted better ale at mortuaries.  
Where do they get this stuff?  From MALCORN's trash dumps?   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.  
STARBASE 5, I suppose you'll be glad to know you were this turn's most avoided team.  
Care to know who is the most afraid of you?  And who led the way in this mass act of 
cowardice?  Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It was TERMINUS.  Ha ha ha ha!  THE 
WITCH-KING was challenged more times this turn than the Duelmaster.  Now was the DM 
insulted or feared?  Heh, heh.  I guess I can give a little credit to WENDIGO of DARK 
CREATION for challenging up by 25 to THE WITCH-KING.  WENDIGO lost to get 68 points 
of recognition.   
     Ah, now we come to my favorite part, where we see all the guys who are dead and 
gone, and get to see if their team cared.  And what a stunning loss we have here, 
boys and girls, THISTLEDOWN of GREENWARDENS has added the final loss to his 4-8-0.  
Tee hee!  We're all going to die in the end, so why worry if the fate catches up with 
you sooner that later?   
     There's got to be a better place in MALCORN to get a drink than The Victory 
Tavern!  Any suggestions?  Well, I've had enough of this drivel, and I'm sure you 
have too.  Off like a dirty shirt of padded leather.  I see the crowds are getting 
restless, I must leave now-- Snide Clemens

Avery -- (confused frown)  I thought you made labels! -- Wind Rider

Quasil -- Drat.  I was hoping I could bore you to the point where YOU would fall
asleep first. -- Mossrock

Varpulis Rukh -- I never did care for dragons, dammit. -- Thistledown

Boss -- Ha. -- Stump

Yeah!  I defeated a Mordant Deserter, and his fans called HIM a stupid idiot! --
Redthorn

Quasil -- I didn't say it!  They put those words in my mouth, honest. -- Mossrock
P.S.  If it had been a subtle reverse-psychology tactic, would it have worked?

Morgue -- You can probably get somebody to fix it.  There are some good smiths
around. -- Stump

Varick -- Probably some officious busybody on the Commission staff. -- Arenamaster
Landon
P.S.  Which is to say, I have no idea.  I don't handle the paperwork.

Mossrock -- Ask and you shall receive.  Apparently I'm a pretty good teacher. --
Quasil

Wind Rider -- I think you're the first opponent that I've brought to the ground! --
Avery

Pie Eyed Piper -- You really made me look pretty inept out there. -- Varick
