                                      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 WINTERGREEN win a fight and gain 7 points, terribly.  And it's out 
with the old, in with the new, as CHANGE takes the Title and last week's bar tab from 
the old Duelmaster.  Heh, heh.  Kickbacks and bribes, kickbacks and bribes, how else 
do you think some of these guys win their fights?  Skill?  Ha!   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.  
What's the big D?  BLIND MELON 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.  BADGER was 
challenged more times this turn than the Duelmaster.  Now was the DM insulted or 
feared?  Heh, heh.  Now here's guts and stupidity all rolled into one, SIR BUBBA THE 
BOLD challenged up 44 to take on BADGER of GREENWARDENS.  My sides still hurt from 
laughing about BADGER losing and giving SIR BUBBA THE BOLD 26 points of recognition.  
Ha ha ha ha!!   
     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.  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 The Victory 
Tavern!  Any suggestions?  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

Morning star, moderate/very low?  I'd never have guessed. -- Wren

Howlin' Wolf and Sleepy House -- Please accept our most sincere apologies.  It's
never fun to have a good warrior killed, and one who's been around that long is a
special wrench. -- Jorja and Badger

Four-one-one.  Two of the wins were over stnadbys, and so it goes.  Taught seven,
learned four.  More balanced this time.
