                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
TALCAMA brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  If this keeps up, THUNDR + LITENING, 
you'll have to shine swords instead of use them.  A drop of 4 in the rankings?  
WIZARDGUARD turned their 4-1-0 turn into a 4th place rank in the listings this turn.  
Any better than this, and you get put on hit lists.  Of course, we're all terribly 
impressed to see DECK APE win a fight and gain 23 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, DECK 
APE beat VILAN and VILAN lost 13 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  Looks like 
TALCAMA has some guts at least, MICHAEL JORDAN the Duelmaster was this turn's 
most-challenged warrior.  MIDNIGHT challenged TALCAMA's Duelmaster for a shot at the 
throne.  And it's out with the old, in with the new, as MIDNIGHT takes the Title and 
last week's bar tab from the old Duelmaster.  Heh, heh.  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, 
TALCAMA?   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.  
TALCAMA, I am losing what little hope I had in you.  THUNDR + LITENING the most 
avoided team?  What insult will suffice, I cannot say.  And it looks like SEA DOGS 
avoided them the most this turn.  What a pack of would be losers, if you ask me.  
Hmph.  And we have SPARE ANCHOR in a challenge, going down 8 points for the fight.  
Guess what?  I thought SPARE ANCHOR showed great skill and promise when he subdued 
BOOGERMAN.  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.  A big yahoo goes out to SHEWISH CORSAIR this turn, 
for revenging SEA DOGS' bloodfeud against CENTER FOR OLDS' warrior FROO-FROO.  Heh, 
heh, heh.  Titanium shields and bamboo daggers, guess what brave team is developing 
these kinds of weapons?   
     What does the TALCAMA arena have in common with the inns?  It's just as 
comfortable to sleep in either place.  Ha ha ha ha!  Phlllt!  Just had to do that 
before I leave the fine city of TALCAMA.  I feel much better now.  Paste this one in 
your scrapbooks, you'll need the kindling come this winter-- Snide Clemens
