                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, TALCAMA?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Later days, SHEPHERDS, since CENTER FOR 
OLDS took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  Gee, I'm impressed, a 
5-0-0 is nice, but don't get cocky, RYAN'S HENCHMEN, the Fates teach humility, and 
the Fates are proud.  JAMESON challenged TALCAMA's Duelmaster for a shot at the 
throne.  And it's out with the old, in with the new, as JAMESON 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!   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.  
TALCAMA, I am losing what little hope I had in you.  SHEPHERDS the most avoided team? 
What insult will suffice, I cannot say.  And it looks like CENTER FOR OLDS avoided 
them the most this turn.  What a pack of would be losers, if you ask me.  Hmph.  Ooh, 
I'm frightfully impressed, A'S SPECIAL BLEND was this turn's most challenged warrior. 
Watch that ego swell, sports fans.  Now look at this.  A'S SPECIAL BLEND challenged 
down 23 against RYAN'S HENCHMEN's DERRY DARLIN.  What a weasel!  Ha ha aha ha aha 
ha!!!  A'S SPECIAL BLEND was was bested by by RYAN'S HENCHMEN's warrior!  Thank the 
gods for big favors!  ha!  I guess I can give a little credit to BARNEY of SHEPHERDS 
for challenging up by 20 to CHATROOMMATE.  BARNEY lost to get 55 points of 
recognition.  And we have GURGLES in a challenge, going down 9 points for the fight.  
Guess what?  I thought GURGLES showed great skill and promise when she killed SARAH.  
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.  Nipped in the bud, you might say, was 
SARAH of SHEPHERDS this turn.  Course, I wouldn't say that, so much as have a belly 
laugh.  Heh heh.  And what a stunning loss we have here, boys and girls, DOC TURTLE 
of CENTER FOR OLDS has added the final loss to hers 3-5-0.  Tee hee!  I can't say as 
I'm proud to find out that SEA DOGS' BABY ON BOARD has killed DOC TURTLE from CENTER 
FOR OLDS.  I can say I wish CENTER FOR OLDS good luck in their bloodfeud.  Honor is 
like a chainmail shirt, it only shines through use.  Certain nameless cowards will 
doubtless rebuke me on this one.   
     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!  Just wait 'till next time I show 
up here, I won't be so nice!  So nyaaah!  Glad to see the back of this place-- Snide 
Clemens
