                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, TALCAMA?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Now let's all watch THE GRATEFUL 
UNDEAD's heads swell from their 4-1-0 this turn.  Haa ha ha ha!  Big shots, big talk, 
big deal.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed to see CRISIS win a fight and gain 
24 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, CRISIS beat LUCIFER and LUCIFER lost 22 points.  
You're breakin' my heart.  Due to absence, and inability to defend the throne, LITTLE 
MOKELE 2 has lost the Title of Duelmaster.  Start setting that alarm earlier!  And 
it's out with the old, in with the new, as BIG PIMPIN' IMP 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.  What's 
the big D?  THE GRATEFUL UNDEAD 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 CENTER FOR OLDS.  Ha ha ha ha!  Ooh, I'm 
frightfully impressed, KRUSK was this turn's most challenged warrior.  Watch that ego 
swell, sports fans.  And we have ANONYMISSUS in a challenge, going down 10 points for 
the fight.  Guess what?  I thought ANONYMISSUS showed great skill and promise when 
she beat LOCAR.  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.  We're all going to die in the end, so why 
worry if the fate catches up with you sooner that later?   
     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.  Well, I've had enough of this 
drivel, and I'm sure you have too.  Off like a dirty shirt of padded leather.  I see 
the crowds are getting restless, I must leave now-- Snide Clemens
