                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, TALCAMA?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed 
to see CARBONATED MILK win a fight and gain 12 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, 
CARBONATED MILK beat MEOUSA and MEOUSA lost 9 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  Our 
last turn's Duelmaster has lost, folks, lost to KHALHUMS DWARF, and CHATROOMMATE has 
made the way for a new Duelmaster!  With CHATROOMMATE clearing the throne, CENTER FOR 
OLDS of BEDDER takes a proud seat as TALCAMA's new Duelmaster, by virtue of 
recognition points.  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.  What's 
the big D?  CENTER FOR OLDS 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 SHEPHERDS.  Ha ha ha ha!  DOC TURTLE was 
challenged more times this turn than the Duelmaster.  Now was the DM insulted or 
feared?  Heh, heh.  Now look at this.  A'S SPECIAL BLEND challenged down 20 against 
CENTER FOR OLDS' DOC TURTLE.  What a weasel!  Question now is, will TALCAMA accept 
this sort of tacky behavior?  A'S SPECIAL BLEND beating DOC TURTLE.  The insult, 
the....yech!   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  Honor is like a chainmail shirt, it only shines 
through use.  Certain nameless cowards will doubtless rebuke me on this one.   
     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.  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

Hi Suave -- I would never have guessed that Talcama would one day feature you and I
battling it out on the sands alone! -- Assur

Gurgles -- Great fight.  So close, but in the end you win! -- Sarah

Carbonated Milk -- Not very close, and I win. *- Barney

Doc Turtle -- Unfortunately for you, this game is not going to be a fun one, because
my manager is currently paying more attention than yours.  But even if that changes,
the game goes like this:  I challenge you, C. Milk challenges me.  You avoid me and
I avoid C. Milk.  The commission meets behind closed doors and makes some kind
of arbitrary decision for who gets the easy win each turn. -- A's Special Blend
