                                      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 PEANUT win a fight and gain 20 points, terribly.  And if variety is 
the spice of life, MALCORN may be getting bland, as SIR TOO DUMB 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?   
     My mother always told me, 'If you don't have anything nice to say, start 
talking.' I loved that woman.  What's the big D?  BLOODSWORN 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.  WHITE RABBIT was challenged more times this turn than the 
Duelmaster.  Now was the DM insulted or feared?  Heh, heh.  Now look at this.  VITAE 
challenged down 24 against GREENWARDENS' WINTERGREEN.  What a weasel!  And golly gee, 
VITAE subdued WINTERGREEN.  Aren't we all surprised and impressed?  I guess I can 
give a little credit to THIRD COURSE of SHEWISH DELICACIES for challenging up by 21 
to WHITE RABBIT.  THIRD COURSE won to get 25 points of recognition.   
     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.  I see 
the crowds are getting restless, I must leave now-- Snide Clemens

Kreysus -- That was too close! -- Third Course

One-four, and it's hot and humid enough to steam the wrinkles out of a linen shirt.
And let me tell, you that is SERIOUSLY hot and humid.  I'd hoped we were going to get
away with "Summer Lite," but no see-gar.  Oh, well. -- Badger, for the Greenwardens
