                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, TALCAMA?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  If this keeps up, ERRATA, you'll have to 
shine swords instead of use them.  A drop of 4 in the rankings?  ARROGANCE turned 
their 1-2-0 turn into a 9th place rank in the listings this turn.  Any better than 
this, and you get put on hit lists.  Now let's all watch SEA DOGS' heads swell from 
their 3-1-0 this turn.  Haa ha ha ha!  Big shots, big talk, big deal.  Of course, 
we're all terribly impressed to see OAKLAND FU win a fight and gain 21 points, 
terribly.  Tsk, tsk, OAKLAND FU beat DARTH SION and DARTH SION lost 24 points.  
You're breakin' my heart.  And if variety is the spice of life, TALCAMA may be 
getting bland, as PROGIDY, DAMMIT! stays top dog in the city.  The Original Arthur's 
Last Stand, humph!  I've tasted better ale at mortuaries.  Where do they get this 
stuff?  From TALCAMA's trash dumps?   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.  
WIZARDGUARD, 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 CENTER FOR OLDS.  Ha ha ha ha!  
Ooh, I'm frightfully impressed, HOFFA was this turn's most challenged warrior.  Watch 
that ego swell, sports fans.  I guess I can give a little credit to TOE PUPPET of 
CENTER FOR OLDS for challenging up by 18 to WARG HANDLER.  TOE PUPPET lost to get 43 
points of recognition.  And we have FROO-FROO in a challenge, going down 14 points 
for the fight.  Guess what?  I thought FROO-FROO showed great skill and promise when 
she bested NULN.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     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?   
     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.  Phlllt!  Just had to do that before 
I leave the fine city of TALCAMA.  I feel much better now.  Glad to see the back of 
this place-- Snide Clemens
