                                      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 DEANO win a fight and gain 20 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, DEANO 
beat HONEYSUCKLE and HONEYSUCKLE lost 14 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  Going 
for broke or broken, our Duelmaster POT OF GOLD challenged this turn.  And it's out 
with the old, in with the new, as POT OF GOLD takes the Title and last week's bar tab 
from the old Duelmaster.  Heh, heh.  Drake's Barbecue, humph!  I've tasted better ale 
at mortuaries.  Where do they get this stuff?  From MALCORN's trash dumps?   
     My mother always told me, 'If you don't have anything nice to say, start 
talking.' I loved that woman.  RAINBOW CONNECTION, 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 it looks like TERMINUS avoided them the most this turn.  What a pack of would be 
losers, if you ask me.  Hmph.  POT OF GOLD was challenged more times this turn than 
the Duelmaster.  Now was the DM insulted or feared?  Heh, heh.  And we have QUASIL in 
a challenge, going down 15 points for the fight.  Guess what?  I thought QUASIL 
showed great skill and promise when he subdued SOURWOOD.  All right, so I slept 
through it!  Big deal!   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for MALCORN's 
morgue.  More variety.  Bye bye, warrior, bye bye...  IN THE DARK, a glorious 7-11-0 
fighter, has passed away.  Gee, too bad RAINBOW CONNECTION.  Titanium shields and 
bamboo daggers, guess what brave team is developing these kinds of weapons?   
     There's got to be a better place in MALCORN to get a drink than Drake's 
Barbecue!  Any suggestions?  Phlllt!  Just had to do that before I leave the fine 
city of MALCORN.  I feel much better now.  I see the crowds are getting restless, I 
must leave now-- Snide Clemens

Looks like Terminus is all over the front page, good!  Better them than us. -- the
Greenwardens

Quasil -- It sure looked like incompetence from my side. -- Sourwood

Morgue -- Might be a good plan.  It might even improve your perforance to clean it
out, more oxygen to the muscles and all. -- Honeysuckle

Quasil -- In the unlikely event that I can get Jorja to listen, I think I need a
special stragety just for fights with you.  Either that, or amphetamines.  Or...
hmm... let me think about this a little longer.  I don't want to get involved with
Dark Root if it won't help. -- Sourwood

Sourwood -- You don't want to get involved with Dark Root at all. -- Jorja

Jorja -- Then how about a strat change? -- Sourwood

Sourwood -- No. -- Jorja

Morgue -- Wow, at least it was fast.  You're getting dangerous there. -- Silver Ghost
In the Dark -- Well, that's the thing with a good flower like the honeysuckle.  You
can tell where it is even in the dark.  Or maybe it's that I could tell where YOU
were? -- Honeysuckle

Steve -- I hope you get cat-scratch fever. -- Bobcat

A Convicted Thief?  That hardly got me warmed up. -- Sundog
