                                      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, DEVIATION, since BLOOD 
AND SAND 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 DEVIATION, whose 0-4-0 
this turn dropped them by 6 into 7th.  Ha!  CAJUN APOCALYPSE turned their 3-2-0 turn 
into a 10th place rank in the listings this turn.  Any better than this, and you get 
put on hit lists.  Now let's all watch THE BLUES' heads swell from their 3-1-1 this 
turn.  Haa ha ha ha!  Big shots, big talk, big deal.  Of course, we're all terribly 
impressed to see NICK SEAFORT win a fight and gain 22 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, 
FLAP JACK beat WAMBASU THE BOLD and WAMBASU THE BOLD lost 20 points.  You're breakin' 
my heart.  Due to absence, and inability to defend the throne, MITER BOX has lost the 
Title of Duelmaster.  Start setting that alarm earlier!  And it's out with the old, 
in with the new, as NICK SEAFORT takes the Title and last week's bar tab from the old 
Duelmaster.  Heh, heh.  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, SUNSET?   
     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 RED BLADES the most avoided team?  
What insult will suffice, I cannot say.  And it looks like NOMADIC TRIBE avoided them 
the most this turn.  What a pack of would be losers, if you ask me.  Hmph.  MIME 
BOGGLING 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 BEASTLY SMURF 
of BEN'S BAZAAR for challenging up by 25 to PIETROS.  BEASTLY SMURF lost to get 72 
points of recognition.   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  I could say I saw this coming, but so could anyone 
else.  Anyway, this turn it came.  DEIMOS MARSDEN's 4-10-0 has earned him the Dark 
Arena.  Gee, CELESTIAL WRATH, ain't it past due for sending SON OF SOL Dark Arena?  
What took ol' '7-8-2' so long?  Hope?  Ha ha aha ha!  Ya gotta go sometime, and DOOR 
MAN's time was this time.  Hmmm, not a bad fighter, had he lived... (what?  me 
pity?).  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!  I see the crowds are getting restless, I must 
leave now-- Snide Clemens
