                                      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.  Of course, we're all terribly 
impressed to see CAFFREY win a fight and gain 21 points, terribly.  And it's out with 
the old, in with the new, as ADAMANT 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?   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.  
What's the big D?  RYAN'S HENCHMEN 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!  Ooh, I'm 
frightfully impressed, KILL KITTEN was this turn's most challenged warrior.  Watch 
that ego swell, sports fans.   
     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.   
     There's got to be a better place in TALCAMA to get a drink than The Original 
Arthur's Last Stand!  Any suggestions?  Just wait 'till next time I show up here, I 
won't be so nice!  So nyaaah!  I see the crowds are getting restless, I must leave 
now-- Snide Clemens

Ruth -- A different weapon?  I'm using my fist, what more could you want?  (It just
so happens my fist is wrapped around the hilt of an axe or a hammer). -- Slippery
Mickey

Aaron -- Considering the rankings, it looks like it's me and you for the next 10-20
fights.  Hopefully I'll get an invite by then.  For what it's worth, I'm trying
something different if you get through my avoid. -- Cockeyed Umbrella

Assur -- If you were trying to MS-MS your way into easy bloodfeuds, where's your
fifth warrior?  Surely he can either be deathbait or something good. -- Suave

Kill Kitten -- I'm not sure what's preventing your graduation, but feel free to take
off anytime.  Until then, you're one of the few options I have to challenge. --
Gurgles 

The countdown ends today!  Congrats or Condolences for a special project that was
started long, long ago. -- Assur

Slippery Mickey -- No clue what that was about.  A's Special Blend is not as good as
Ruth, yet you've beaten Ruth once and made her sweat in the 2nd fight. -- Assur

Cockeyed Umbrella -- Assur says it is going to be best of 5 (or possibly much much
more if you continue to teach me as you do). -- Aaron

Gurgles -- Congrats on the throne.  Hopefully you'll be out of here momentarily! --
Assur
