                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, ZUWAYZA?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Later days, THE MAGNIFICENT MAGS, since 
JOURNEY took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  Of course, we're 
all terribly impressed to see ESCAPE win a fight and gain 10 points, terribly.  Tsk, 
tsk, ONLY THE YOUNG beat HARBINGER and HARBINGER lost 6 points.  You're breakin' my 
heart.  MAD DOG RUSSO challenged HOUSE BEAUTIFUL for ZUWAYZA's Title this turn, and 
guess what happened?  And if variety is the spice of life, ZUWAYZA may be getting 
bland, as MAD DOG RUSSO 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?   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.  
JOURNEY, 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 who led the way in this mass act of 
cowardice?  Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It was MAN OR BEAST?.  Ha ha ha ha!  Ooh, 
I'm frightfully impressed, LONELY HEARTS 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 ZUWAYZA arena have in common with the inns?  It's just as 
comfortable to sleep in either place.  Ha ha ha ha!  Well, I've had enough of this 
drivel, and I'm sure you have too.  Off like a dirty shirt of padded leather.  Glad 
to see the back of this place-- Snide Clemens

Lights -- Omen's weakness:  spankings and women... well, I suppose we can't fault him
there.  Do be a love and kill the poor fool next time you meet, if he loses. --
Octavia

Open Arms -- I have to say, naked cat women are quite the delicious distraction, you
naughty minx.  We should play together again soon.  *wink* *blows kiss* -- Malice

Escape -- Lesson's over. -- Harbinger

Can Do -- Again those dastardly commentators are attempting to color me a murderess!
I am *not* Malice!  I hope I didn't hurt you too bad... here. *hands you a lolli* --
Perumbra

     Maybe we should get up a committe to mug them in an alley?

Perumbra -- Hey now!  Stop telling on me! -- Malice

Penumbra -- The commentators are a bloodthirsty lot.  Probably in the pay of
morticians or something even darker. -- Space Monthly
P.S.  They remind of a certain group on the third moon of Alpha Capsicum Five.
Terrible creatures.

Two-three.  Well, okay, I can see two-three.  Not happily, but I can see it.  I got
bitten by a Mad Dog (and the rabies shots are a serious pain, let me tell you!),
Space got bitten by a snake, probably from the Hidden Planet Herpeto, Hammer (ha,

this is good!) got hammered by an unarmed standby!  Lonely Hearts refused to work
with a Cult Member, for which I don't blame her, weird people, Cult Members.  And
Travel said Only The Young can't afford his services. -- House Beautiful
