                                      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.  Later days, STREET PIZZA, since 
GHAELIE SIDHE took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  If this keeps 
up, STREET PIZZA, you'll have to shine swords instead of use them.  A drop of 4 in 
the rankings?  GHAELIE SIDHE turned their 3-2-0 turn into a 1st 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 SUPERIOR SNOTLING win a fight and gain 28 points, 
terribly.  Tsk, tsk, SUPERIOR SNOTLING beat HAMMER FINGER and HAMMER FINGER lost 21 
points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And if variety is the spice of life, TALCAMA may 
be getting bland, as ABCESS stays top dog in the city.  Kickbacks and bribes, 
kickbacks and bribes, how else do you think some of these guys win their fights?  
Skill?  Ha!   
     My mother always told me, 'If you don't have anything nice to say, start 
talking.' I loved that woman.  STREET PIZZA, I suppose you'll be glad to know you 
were this turn's most avoided team.  Care to know who is the most afraid of you?  And 
it looks like THE MENTORS avoided them the most this turn.  What a pack of would be 
losers, if you ask me.  Hmph.  Ooh, I'm frightfully impressed, YIPE! 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.  We're all going to die in the end, so why worry if 
the fate catches up with you sooner that later?   
     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.  Glad to see the 
back of this place-- Snide Clemens
