                                      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 keep the taverns open late tonight, 
for there are sorrows to drown for THE MENTORS, whose 0-0-0 this turn dropped them by 
9 into 15th.  Ha!  Now let's all watch GHAELIE SIDHE's heads swell from their 3-1-1 
this turn.  Haa ha ha ha!  Big shots, big talk, big deal.  Of course, we're all 
terribly impressed to see SUSHI HANGOVER win a fight and gain 27 points, terribly.  
Tsk, tsk, SUSHI HANGOVER beat EDDY and EDDY lost 26 points.  You're breakin' my 
heart.  Due to absence, and inability to defend the throne, ABCESS has lost the Title 
of Duelmaster.  Start setting that alarm earlier!  And it's out with the old, in with 
the new, as DIZZ SCHUIER takes the Title and last week's bar tab from the old 
Duelmaster.  Heh, heh.  The Original Arthur's Last Stand, humph!  I've tasted better 
ale at mortuaries.  Where do they get this stuff?  From TALCAMA's trash dumps?   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.  
TALCAMA, I am losing what little hope I had in you.  STREET PIZZA the most avoided 
team?  What insult will suffice, I cannot say.  And it looks like GHAELIE SIDHE 
avoided them the most this turn.  What a pack of would be losers, if you ask me.  
Hmph.  HOLY GUACAMOLE was challenged more times this turn than the Duelmaster.  Now 
was the DM insulted or feared?  Heh, heh.   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  And sending DRIFTWOOD to the Dark Arena was supposed 
to be one of your better ideas, SEA DOGS?  Now hey, I like to see a death as much as 
the next guy, but hey SEA DOGS, whyja send CHUM to the Dark Arena, look at his 
record, huh?  We're all going to die in the end, so why worry if the fate catches up 
with you sooner that later?   
     There's got to be a better place in TALCAMA to get a drink than The Original 
Arthur's Last Stand!  Any suggestions?  Phlllt!  Just had to do that before I leave 
the fine city of TALCAMA.  I feel much better now.  I see the crowds are getting 
restless, I must leave now-- Snide Clemens

Common -- lmao -- My stable manager couldn't stop laughing at you. -- Goon2

Talcama -- It's been a while, but we are now home.  Eddy will be working his way
towards graduation.  Third Wind and Rogue Wave will be prepping for the upcoming
mail-in tournament.  Chum and Driftwood will be making room for some new warriors.
The arena seems strangely busy and disturbingly quiet all at the same time.
Hopefully we can change that last part a little bit. -- One Armed Bandit and the Sea
Dogs
