                                      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, BLOOD ON THE TRACKS, since 
GOLDEN GLADIATORS took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  Of 
course, we're all terribly impressed to see FLY BYE win a fight and gain 17 points, 
terribly.  Tsk, tsk, BLACK INDEKKER beat JACK OF HEARTS and JACK OF HEARTS lost 7 
points.  You're breakin' my heart.  Looks like WILLAF has some guts at least, 56TH 
AND WABASHA the Duelmaster was this turn's most-challenged warrior.  GOLDEN GIRL 
challenged WILLAF's Duelmaster for a shot at the throne.  And it's out with the old, 
in with the new, as GOLDEN GIRL 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!   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.  WILLAF, 
I am losing what little hope I had in you.  BLOOD ON THE TRACKS the most avoided 
team?  What insult will suffice, I cannot say.  And it looks like GOLDEN GLADIATORS 
avoided them the most this turn.  What a pack of would be losers, if you ask me.  
Hmph.   
     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.  Honor is like a chainmail shirt, it only 
shines through use.  Certain nameless cowards will doubtless rebuke me on this one.   
     There's got to be a better place in WILLAF to get a drink than The Warty Toad!  
Any suggestions?  Just wait 'till next time I show up here, I won't be so nice!  So 
nyaaah!  Glad to see the back of this place-- Snide Clemens

Congrats to Duelmaster 56th & Wabash.  Could you leave a little less blood on the
tracks, though? -- Midas, Golden Gladiators

Oski Noble -- Oops!  I knew I hit hard, but death?  So sorry. -- Golden Gloves

Hori Bull -- I apologize for being so horrible to you.  Sorta. -- Golden Girl

Black Indekker -- Too quick and fast for you, eh? -- Golden Flash

Health.  Humility.  Honor.  Gold.  Happy Valentine's Day. -- Midas

Gold Miner -- Who, me? -- Siefinn Rhuvar, Creative Financial Clerk

Oops!  If we don't appear in "teams on the move," and said listing includes some
teams that aren't moving at all, this is probably a sign that we're headed down.
*Really* good thing that Jorja doesn't do the Dark Arena! -- Black Indekker
P.S.  The blood made the tracks slippery.

Golden Flash -- You most-challenged me?  What for?  I'm not about to share a cargo of
skills with YOU, Flash-in-the-pan. -- Black Indekker

Debby Tonte -- Why should I want you to talk about a loss of mine?  Be a good girl
and sweep it under the rug. -- Black Indekker

Golden Girl -- You elfish types just DO IT for me. -- Hori Bull
P.S.  For you, this time only, skills.  You can thank me tonight.

Ashton -- How tedious of you.  Good fight. -- Hazel Nutte

Jack of Hearts -- Excuse me?  I'd only do THAT with you if you were female. -- Whip
Sawyer

Aaron -- Unless I misread the newsletter, you have just wrapped up an oh-fer turn for
us.  I would rather have had the sole win or something, you know?  Let's try it that
way next time. -- Sofa'yam
