                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
ZUWAYZA brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Later days, WALI'S FINEST, since 
FUNKY FOLK took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  FUNKY FOLK 
turned their 3-1-0 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 FLIGHT JOURNAL win a fight and gain 22 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, NIFTY NICKEL 
beat CARAMEL and CARAMEL lost 9 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And if variety is 
the spice of life, ZUWAYZA may be getting bland, as CARY YON stays top dog in the 
city.  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, ZUWAYZA?   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.  
ZUWAYZA, I am losing what little hope I had in you.  TEAM CHAOS the most avoided 
team?  What insult will suffice, I cannot say.  And who led the way in this mass act 
of cowardice?  Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It was JAGUAR WARRIORS.  Ha ha ha ha!  
Ooh, I'm frightfully impressed, VED BUENS ENDE was this turn's most challenged 
warrior.  Watch that ego swell, sports fans.   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for ZUWAYZA's 
morgue.  More variety.  And what a stunning loss we have here, boys and girls, 
STRATUS of TEAM CHAOS has added the final loss to hers 6-10-0.  Tee hee!  I can't say 
as I'm proud to find out that JAGUAR WARRIORS' HIDEKI HAO has killed STRATUS from 
TEAM CHAOS.  I can say I wish TEAM CHAOS good luck in their bloodfeud.  Titanium 
shields and bamboo daggers, guess what brave team is developing these kinds of 
weapons?   
     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!  I see the crowds are getting restless, I must 
leave now-- Snide Clemens

Jewel -- (scowling fiercely)  There is no reason for this!  It is, in fact, totally
unacceptable behavior.  I hope you are suitably ashamed of yourself! -- Blood Sports

Caramel -- Ah, yes, splendid stuff.  Something as the air on a calm day, but subtle.
Something to treasure.  Easy to carry in the pocket of one's jacket for those moments
when a little pick-me-up may keep you from needing more serious assistance. -- Flight
Journal

White Chocolate -- No, I'm sorry, this is NOT the season for white.  Too much of that
around already.  Not that I'll stop you from placing an ad, mind, every nickel is a
good one with me, but you might as well be selling ice cream.  People want color
today!  Red!  Blue!  Sunny yellow!  And, let's face it, those subtle characteristics
which make DARK chocolate so much more "the thing." -- Nifty Nickel

     That and the fact that dark chocolate tastes good and white chocolate is pretty
     bland. -- Ed.

Solar -- A chaotic sun would be a scary thought, something worthy of headlines in the
largest type.  Fortunately, it's only a spurious forecast.  Everyone knows that the
end of the world is not approaching, as it is well documented as having happened six
years ago next Monday. -- Times

Venenoso -- What are you?  A poisonous bear?  Don't need one.  Bears are just no good
in carriages.  Too heavy, and too restless.  Messes up the balance, and the
suspension, too, and everyone knows that balance and suspension are critical. -- Hot
Rod

Ah, warrior listings on the front page again.  Have to do something about that.... --
Jorja

Ved Buens Ende -- Congratulations! -- all of us at The Magnificent Mags

Topo Gigio -- You might want to look into the "self-cleaning swords" thing.  I
believe Nifty Nickel has some ads for those. -- Hot Rod

Stratus -- An albatross somehow became entangled with one of my ailerons.  Very
strange.  Quite the freak accident.  I trust it shall not happen again. -- Flight
