                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, ALJAFIR?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Later days, STEEL WOLVES, since FIELDS 
OF ELYSIUM took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  Of course, we're 
all terribly impressed to see DROGBA win a fight and gain 27 points, terribly.  Tsk, 
tsk, DROGBA beat AIM SEDUCE HAMMER and AIM SEDUCE HAMMER lost 19 points.  You're 
breakin' my heart.  And if variety is the spice of life, ALJAFIR may be getting 
bland, as ATTILA THE HUN 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, 
ALJAFIR?   
     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?  STEEL WOLVES 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 FIELDS OF 
ELYSIUM.  Ha ha ha ha!  MAXA SMASHU was challenged more times this turn than the 
Duelmaster.  Now was the DM insulted or feared?  Heh, heh.  And we have NOVELLUS in a 
TV challenge, going down 12 points for the fight.  Guess what?  I thought NOVELLUS 
showed great skill and promise when he overcame ROONEY.  All right, so I slept 
through it!  Big deal!   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  And now a passing thought on a warrior dying young 
(LAMPARD of HEROESANDFOUNDONES):  You had your chance and now you're dead.  Oh 
well...  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 ALJAFIR to get a drink than The Vile Vizier! 
Any suggestions?  Well, I've had enough of this drivel, and I'm sure you have too.  
Off like a dirty shirt of padded leather.  Glad to see the back of this place-- Snide 
Clemens

Novellus -- You're new, huh?  And kinda nasty for a guy who hangs out in the flowers.
Oh, well, that's the way it goes. -- Grishort Hurm
P.S.  Jorja says I'm all wet about the flowers, but I know what I'm talking about.
My mother grew 'em.  Sweet Elysiums.  Little white ones.  Not fields of 'em, just in
a little pot, but still, it's the same stuff.

Mayhem -- No, him may not, but her may.  What can I say, it's been that kind of day
all along. -- Vinn Wulf
P.S.  Try not to parry with your face.  I know you short guys can't always help it, I
mean, there's your face right at sword level, but you could duck, couldn't you?

Aim Reduce Hammer -- (bursts into tears)  I knew it!  You think I'm too fat! --
Stelra Tirins

Lampard -- Well, no WONDER you won that fight.  I was so SHOCKED to discover that I'm
a dwarf!  My mother never breathed a WORD about it. -- Xaviora Yohl
P.S.  I can't be a dwarf, I have a high charisma!  That's undwarven.  Of course, I'm
only averagely attractive...do you think it's my beard?  Maybe I should have it
curled.

Trevisa Dinara -- Sorry, I got carried away.  My elven nature is fighting with my
appointed style.  I'm supposed to be subtle, and Jorja says, um, "Drat subtle, go out
there and do damage."  So un-elven.  I may have over-compensated for my reluctance.
-- Tamarin Mellirn
