                                      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, MIDDLE WAY, since 82ND 
ILLINOIS took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  Now keep the 
taverns open late tonight, for there are sorrows to drown for MIDDLE WAY, whose 0-5-0 
this turn dropped them by 4 into 5th.  Ha!  82ND ILLINOIS turned their 4-1-0 turn 
into a 1st place rank in the listings this turn.  Any better than this, and you get 
put on hit lists.  And it's out with the old, in with the new, as BOROMIR takes the 
Title and last week's bar tab from the old Duelmaster.  Heh, heh.  The Vile Vizier, 
humph!  I've tasted better ale at mortuaries.  Where do they get this stuff?  From 
ALJAFIR's trash dumps?   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.  82ND 
ILLINOIS, 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 DUEL REALITY.  Ha ha ha ha!  Ooh, 
I'm frightfully impressed, LT. OLSEN was this turn's most challenged warrior.  Watch 
that ego swell, sports fans.  I guess I can give a little credit to CAPT KIRCHNER of 
82ND ILLINOIS for challenging up by 22 to CALEB DOOR.  CAPT KIRCHNER won to get 81 
points of recognition.   
     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?   
     There's got to be a better place in ALJAFIR to get a drink than The Vile Vizier! 
Any suggestions?  Just wait 'till next time I show up here, I won't be so nice!  So 
nyaaah!  Paste this one in your scrapbooks, you'll need the kindling come this 
winter-- Snide Clemens

Our congratulations to Zombie. -- Jorja and the Middle Way

Marx -- Didn't we just do this?  Still, if this gets you moving, it will be a good
idea.  What do you need yet?  Just two more fights, or do you need skills?  I've got
some I'm not using. -- Senlum Nosh

Boromir -- I'm not surprised.  You came with a reputation for self-serving violence.
-- Barnum Chells

Ah!  To defeat the Khalhums Dwarf is no small thing, even though HE is.  But I feel
sure it will lead to worse encounters. -- Caleb Door
P.S.  You'd think I could've picked up a skill or two, wouldn't you?

Lt Sporre -- Ah... welcome to the arena?  I didn't need this in my life, this loss,
but then again, what else is there for a mediocre gladiator who isn't being actively
managed, hmm? -- Morris Ormran

Lt Kafka -- With a record like that, you should be one of us. -- Fenster Golly
