                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, SUNSET?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Later days, BLACKEST PRIDE, since AGE OF 
EMPIRE took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  If this keeps up, 
SWORD OPERA, you'll have to shine swords instead of use them.  A drop of 6 in the 
rankings?  THE NATURALS XI turned their 2-3-1 turn into a 6th place rank in the 
listings this turn.  Any better than this, and you get put on hit lists.  Now let's 
all watch AGE OF EMPIRE's heads swell from their 4-1-1 this turn.  Haa ha ha ha!  Big 
shots, big talk, big deal.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed to see LILLIAN 
LUST win a fight and gain 25 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, ASHANDAR beat VOLLEYBALL 
and VOLLEYBALL lost 12 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  BAUMGARTEN Dark Arena 
Challenged WURM KIN for SUNSET's Title this turn, and guess what happened?  And if 
variety is the spice of life, SUNSET may be getting bland, as BAUMGARTEN stays top 
dog in the city.  Cagliostro's Castle, humph!  I've tasted better ale at mortuaries.  
Where do they get this stuff?  From SUNSET's trash dumps?   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.  SUNSET, 
I am losing what little hope I had in you.  THE NATURALS XI the most avoided team?  
What insult will suffice, I cannot say.  And it looks like BLACKEST PRIDE avoided 
them the most this turn.  What a pack of would be losers, if you ask me.  Hmph.  ACE 
was challenged more times this turn than the Duelmaster.  Now was the DM insulted or 
feared?  Heh, heh.  And we have SWIMMING in a challenge, going down 12 points for the 
fight.  Guess what?  I thought SWIMMING showed great skill and promise when it bested 
DRUNK MOOSE.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  Whoa!  I'll even buy BAUMGARTEN a drink tonight!  
Anyone who can come back from the Dark Arena, I want to be on hers good side!  AGE OF 
EMPIRE has cause to pause today, as KHORAG was sent to the Dark Arena, and came 
back--though not in the best of moods, I'll wager.  Ya gotta go sometime, and ICON's 
time was this time.  Hmmm, not a bad fighter, had he lived... (what?  me pity?).  And 
what a stunning loss we have here, boys and girls, DEUCE of SWORD OPERA has added the 
final loss to his 3-7-0.  Tee hee!  A big yahoo goes out to BURM N'HAMM this turn, 
for revenging MAGIC CITY MAFIA's bloodfeud against SONS OF SATAN's warrior XAPHAN.  
Heh, heh, heh.  We're all going to die in the end, so why worry if the fate catches 
up with you sooner that later?   
     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

Alamar -- What could be more lasting than lands?  I'll tell you what, have the
Commission give me six potions of favorites and I'll forget about land....  Deal? :)
-- Horns

Bonedust-- What makes you think you'll be better than me someday?  Because you're
big?  Please....  Are you even able to match my basic record thus far?  Last I looked
you are an init, hell, I'll probably be TVing Freshman or ADM while you are lumbering
through adepts with a 15-18 record....  Nothing personal, just genetics; you have
Stik for a manager and I have Ultraist. -- Evolution Theory

Baumgarten -- I hope you at least have the decency to write a Duelmasters column.
With your graduation at long last, I imagine that will be the end of your Andorian
swine manager's stay here in Sunset?  We all know Street Legal has courage issues....
-- Asylum

Stik -- Damion was referring to Bit Bucket fighting with Bonedust's strategy; because
your of poor penmanship RSI misinterpreted the ID#'s (Bitbucket 698 and Bonedust
6098). -- Ultraist

A Blitzkrieg team in Sunset?  You lads must be lost, remedial warrior training is
held in Jhans....

Azrael -- You could at least wait until I left before reclaiming the name 'Azrael'.
The nerve of some people! -- Azrael, SOS

Stik -- Bit Bucket 698 fights.  Bonedust 6098 sits.  It's all about the '0'.  I still
blame your penmanship.  And sometimes I can rouse myself to say something but it sure
gets tougher as I get older. -- Damion

All right, who forgot to spike the Moose's drinks?  Come'on, fess up!  He sure wasn't
tipsy when he was cleaving his axe through my jaw.  And not a single pick up line!
Some drunk he was. -- Lillian Lust

MCM -- Seems we can't miss each other down here in the ranks.  I'm a little bit
tougher when not dealing with a 29 point downchallenge. -- Shalbriri

MCM -- Ooops, wrong challenge, Jasper!  Sword, head, splat. Now Blackest Pride is
going to be mad at you for making their quest for kills a touch harder. -- Zaphan

Mac -- Outknifed you!  You only brought one and I had three! -- The Suppurating One

Stik -- While I definitely tend to skew the stats, I cannot claim responsibility for
all the bashers.  And my time here is coming to a close.  I'm prepping Volleyball and
Swimming for next summer.  Not because they're such awesome specimens that I expect
to WOW the DM community, but because they're among the best I have.  I am currently
planning to attend next summer's face to face, but that is still a long way off.  But
that is my current plan.  After this turn, Volleyball will be at 19FE and Swimming at
18FE, so you can figure out from there what I'll be doing.... -- Assurnasirbanipal

Sunset -- Better watch out, because if things go the way I hope, you're gonna have a
basher on the throne next turn!  And a young one at that!  MUHAHAHAHA. -- Assur

Baltimore Hayseed -- I was not expecting that.  But then, when does one ever expect
to get their ass kicked?!?? -- Tusk

Pelham -- That was...disappointing.  The Old Man was not pleased with me.  He cut off
the beer! -- Bonedust

Rajerek -- Nice challenge, glad I was able to provide an easy win for you.  Some of
my teammates may not be so easy, however. -- Moon Dance

Welcome to Sunset, Ill City Pimps and Hate Breed; stay a while, spill some blood and
enjoy the hospitality!! -- Stik and Grim Fandango

Hacker's, Inc. -- If that was just an input error, that sucks.  Got me all worked up
and nostalgic! -- Stik

Ultraist -- Well, I was more bored than usual if nothing else.  Nice website the Iron
Council has there, by the way.  Still under construction, I take it?  Where's the
"Saga?" -- Stik

Lord Protector Baumgarten -- Congrats on your successful escape to immortality!  Is
Street going to get you to write us a farewell column?  I hope it's not the end of I
Magi here! -- Stik

Tusk -- I am so persistent that I killed a monster in the Dark Arena and Doc just
sent me back there again!?!  What does a warrior have to do to make the team around
here!  Good luck with the rest of your career. -- Khorag

Tusk -- I try to scan the ads when there is time to see if anyone is talking to me.
And if it is not some Andorian whining about a down challenge or head shot I might
even answer.  I'm pleased to see that there are some arenas left where having me
around is considered a good thing.  Do I know your manager? -- Doc Steele

Volleyball -- You're not supposed to hit me in the HEAD with that thing!  What'd you
load it with, rocks? -- Ace, bad loser

Burm N'hamm -- Ah, enjoy it while you can, mammal!  I'm working on a special sauce
for roast pig, and YOU are going to be IT. -- Duckbert

anywhere near you. -- Deuce

Lady Protector Baumgarten of I Magi -- Well, if you're a magician, and I have to say
you don't LOOK like a magician, no pointy hat, no robe with weird signs on it, but
that's beside the point.  Where was I?  Oh, right, if you're a magician, you don't
need LAND, do you?  Because, as you will have noted last cycle, lands are what we
have none of here.  Do you have any ideas?  Any hot desires? -- Alamar, Gladiatorial
Lands Commissioner without Lands
