                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, MALCORN?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Later days, CRUCIAL TAUNT, since 
GREENWARDENS took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  Gee, I'm 
impressed, a 3-1-0 is nice, but don't get cocky, BLIND MELON, the Fates teach 
humility, and the Fates are proud.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed to see 
KILLER win a fight and gain 18 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, KILLER beat WREN and WREN 
lost 15 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  Looks like MALCORN has some guts at 
least, SABBATH the Duelmaster was this turn's most-challenged warrior.  STOLEYOURSPOT 
challenged MALCORN's Duelmaster for a shot at the throne.  And if variety is the 
spice of life, MALCORN may be getting bland, as SABBATH 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, MALCORN?   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.  What's 
the big D?  CRUCIAL TAUNT was the most avoided team?  Bunch of lily livered... 
grumble... mumble... curse...  And it looks like THE GRAIL KNIGHTS avoided them the 
most this turn.  What a pack of would be losers, if you ask me.  Hmph.   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  We're all going to die in the end, so why worry if 
the fate catches up with you sooner that later?   
     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.  Paste 
this one in your scrapbooks, you'll need the kindling come this winter-- Snide 
Clemens

Ha!  Popularity Leader!  It just goes to SHOW that there are a lot of people out
there who WISH they had the nerve to bite people who annoy them. -- Little Biter

For the rest, two-three.  Eric won his bloodfeud over Treeshadow, which was a good
thing, even if it was a loss for us.  Wren stopped Killer from living up to his name.
Badger couldn't dig a safe hole because there was No Rain.  Little Biter chewed up
Sleepy House (that'll wake him up!), and Change caused Snowfoot to melt around the
edges.  Just a typical week in summer. -- the Greenwardens
