                                      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, THE MAGNIFICENT MAGS, 
since MAN OR BEAST? took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  MAN OR 
BEAST? turned their 5-0-1 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 LARRY BIRD win a fight and gain 17 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, 
VENOMOUS CONCUBINE beat HEMLOCK and HEMLOCK lost 12 points.  You're breakin' my 
heart.  MALKAI challenged ZUWAYZA's Duelmaster for a shot at the throne.  And if 
variety is the spice of life, ZUWAYZA may be getting bland, as SHORTLINE stays top 
dog in the city.  The Drunken Ox, humph!  I've tasted better ale at mortuaries.  
Where do they get this stuff?  From ZUWAYZA's trash dumps?   
     My mother always told me, 'If you don't have anything nice to say, start 
talking.' I loved that woman.  ZUWAYZA, I am losing what little hope I had in you.  
DRAGON JUNKIES the most avoided team?  What insult will suffice, I cannot say.  And 
it looks like MAN OR BEAST? avoided them the most this turn.  What a pack of would be 
losers, if you ask me.  Hmph.  Ooh, I'm frightfully impressed, MAGIC TODAY was this 
turn's most challenged warrior.  Watch that ego swell, sports fans.  Now here's guts 
and stupidity all rolled into one, BEAR GRYLLS challenged up 28 to take on MAGIC 
TODAY of THE MAGNIFICENT MAGS.  And The Drunken Ox has banned MAGIC TODAY from 
service until next turn for losing to BEAR GRYLLS and giving him 27 points in the 
process!  Ha!  I guess I can give a little credit to YOTHLOTHIEL of FROM THE SHADOW 
for challenging up by 25 to BLACK MAIDEN.  YOTHLOTHIEL won to get 27 points of 
recognition.   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for ZUWAYZA's 
morgue.  More variety.  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!  Paste this one in your scrapbooks, you'll need 
the kindling come this winter-- Snide Clemens
