                                      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, GREENWARDENS, since THE 
GRAIL KNIGHTS took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  Of course, 
we're all terribly impressed to see PHOENIX win a fight and gain 13 points, terribly. 
Tsk, tsk, THE USEROUS MERCHANT beat BLUE RAM and BLUE RAM lost 5 points.  You're 
breakin' my heart.  And if variety is the spice of life, MALCORN may be getting 
bland, as SIR TOO DUMB stays top dog in the city.  Kickbacks and bribes, kickbacks 
and bribes, how else do you think some of these guys win their fights?  Skill?  Ha!   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.  What's 
the big D?  GREENWARDENS was the most avoided team?  Bunch of lily livered... 
grumble... mumble... curse...  And who led the way in this mass act of cowardice?  
Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It was THE GRAIL KNIGHTS.  Ha ha ha ha!  Ooh, I'm 
frightfully impressed, WINTERGREEN was this turn's most challenged warrior.  Watch 
that ego swell, sports fans.  And we have VITAE in a challenge, going down 10 points 
for the fight.  Guess what?  I thought VITAE showed great skill and promise when he 
subdued WINTERGREEN.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     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?   
     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.  Glad to see the back of 
this place-- Snide Clemens
