                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, WILLAF?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Later days, PUNNY AMINALS, since 
SHADOWMONGERS took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  Of course, 
we're all terribly impressed to see EVEBRINGER win a fight and gain 21 points, 
terribly.  Tsk, tsk, MOONSINGER beat HORI BULL and HORI BULL lost 2 points.  You're 
breakin' my heart.  And if variety is the spice of life, WILLAF may be getting bland, 
as GOLDPLATED 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, WILLAF?   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.  PUNNY 
AMINALS, 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 who led the way in this mass act of 
cowardice?  Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It was GOLDEN GLADIATORS.  Ha ha ha ha!  
Ooh, I'm frightfully impressed, WELL DON was this turn's most challenged warrior.  
Watch that ego swell, sports fans.   
     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

A salute to you, Goldplated.  I appreciate the contribution to our golden coffers
that a Duelmaster Title makes.  Kudos. -- Midas

Dee Nile -- Good luck in The Big Time.  I was glad to be your final fight.  I liked
the results a lot.  See you soon on The Isle. -- Goldplated

Kung-Fu Master -- You surprised me with that big yell of yours!  I thought you
screached "gold devalued."  Scared me!  You Bum! -- Gold Dubloon

Whip Sawyer -- You may have whipped, but I whitewashed. -- Golden Flash

Everbringer -- I tried, but you were just plain too good.  Salute. -- Golden Globe
(thinking Les Miserables got screwed)

Shadowmongers -- Well done.  Great point gain!  Top 'o the heap. -- Midas

Well Don, what a fine record you have.  That places a target on your back.  Can you
take the heat?  Or are you a sandbagger who will fade out of the arena without the
TRUE test? -- Midas

Health.  Humility.  Honor. -- Midas
P.S.  Gold helps.

Midas -- Thank you.  If you'd be so good as to drop by our place and turn a few
pebbles into gold, that would be appreciated. -- Dee Nile

Hipy Hippy Shake -- Oh... I thought you were a SNAKE!  Definitely slim, though. --
Hori Bull
P.S.  Well, you WERE slim, now you're more... flat.

Goldplated -- Damn, I can't believe you did that.  I DENY you did that. -- Dee Nile
P.S.  Good fight, I guess.

Golden Flash -- That was blinding. -- Whip Sawyer

Bruno Ponce Jones -- Nothing unbelievable about that!  I was on my form, or
something. -- Black Indekker

56th and Wabasha -- Damn, you got me on a style advantage!  Couldn't have been
anything else... could it? -- Sofa'yam
