                                      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.  CUNNING RUNTS turned their 2-2-0 
turn into a 4th place rank in the listings this turn.  Any better than this, and you 
get put on hit lists.  Now let's all watch THE MAGNIFICENT MAGS' heads swell from 
their 4-1-0 this turn.  Haa ha ha ha!  Big shots, big talk, big deal.  Of course, 
we're all terribly impressed to see MODERN SCENE win a fight and gain 8 points, 
terribly.  Tsk, tsk, JEWEL beat TRASH COLLECTOR and TRASH COLLECTOR lost 4 points.  
You're breakin' my heart.  And if variety is the spice of life, ZUWAYZA may be 
getting bland, as ARCHIPPUS 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!   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.  
ZUWAYZA, I am losing what little hope I had in you.  IDES OF MARCH 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 TROUBLED WATERS.  Ha ha ha ha!  
AQUILA was challenged more times this turn than the Duelmaster.  Now was the DM 
insulted or feared?  Heh, heh.  Now here's guts and stupidity all rolled into one, 
STEWIE GRIFFIN challenged up 28 to take on AQUILA of TROUBLED WATERS.  Well, ok, the 
upstart knave (where've I heard that before?) won this match and gained 20 points to 
boot!  Ha ha ha, AQUILA.   
     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.  Titanium shields and bamboo daggers, guess 
what brave team is developing these kinds of weapons?   
     What does the ZUWAYZA 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!  Paste this one in your scrapbooks, you'll 
need the kindling come this winter-- Snide Clemens
