                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
SUNSET brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Later days, TEAM SLIME, since THE RED 
BLADES took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  Now keep the taverns 
open late tonight, for there are sorrows to drown for BLOODTHIRST, whose 0-0-0 this 
turn dropped them by 5 into 10th.  Ha!  OMINOUS REIGN turned their 3-2-0 turn into a 
6th place rank in the listings this turn.  Any better than this, and you get put on 
hit lists.  Gee, I'm impressed, a 3-0-0 is nice, but don't get cocky, KANO CLAN, the 
Fates teach humility, and the Fates are proud.  Of course, we're all terribly 
impressed to see TIME win a fight and gain 25 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, TIME beat 
YODLE LAYHE WHO and YODLE LAYHE WHO lost 20 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  
SASQUATCH challenged SUNSET's Duelmaster for a shot at the throne.  And if variety is 
the spice of life, SUNSET may be getting bland, as TERRA SIGILLATA stays top dog in 
the city.  Wildlife Unlimited, humph!  I've tasted better ale at mortuaries.  Where 
do they get this stuff?  From SUNSET's trash dumps?   
     My mother always told me, 'If you don't have anything nice to say, start 
talking.' I loved that woman.  GRIM FANDANGO, 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 REPTILE RAMPAGE.  Ha ha ha ha!  GECKO was challenged more times this turn than 
the Duelmaster.  Now was the DM insulted or feared?  Heh, heh.  I guess I can give a 
little credit to BLAKSKUL of GRIM FANDANGO for challenging up by 22 to OPHELIA 
DELPHI.  BLAKSKUL lost to get 53 points of recognition.   
     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.  Whoa!  I'll even buy VIRILE MAN a drink 
tonight!  Anyone who can come back from the Dark Arena, I want to be on his good 
side!  Not that I'll be buying the drinks, but I'll be glad to  see LIKE WATER and 
GRIM FANDANGO at Wildlife Unlimited tonight celebrating their bloodfeud victory over 
BARBARIC SMURF.  Honor is like a chainmail shirt, it only shines through use.  
Certain nameless cowards will doubtless rebuke me on this one.   
     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.  Phlllt!  Just had to do that before 
I leave the fine city of SUNSET.  I feel much better now.  I see the crowds are 
getting restless, I must leave now-- Snide Clemens
