                                      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, MASTERS OF MELODY, since 
GRIM FANDANGO took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  If this keeps 
up, MASTERS OF MELODY, you'll have to shine swords instead of use them.  A drop of 5 
in the rankings?  ALL JACKED UP II turned their 4-1-0 turn into a 3rd place rank in 
the listings this turn.  Any better than this, and you get put on hit lists.  Now 
let's all watch THE CEREAL KILLERS' heads swell from their 4-1-0 this turn.  Haa ha 
ha ha!  Big shots, big talk, big deal.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed to 
see SEVN HELLS win a fight and gain 48 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, SAM-MARIAH 
SAMURAI beat HOOCHIE COOCHIE and HOOCHIE COOCHIE lost 14 points.  You're breakin' my 
heart.  Looks like SUNSET has some guts at least, BELL the Duelmaster was this turn's 
most-challenged warrior.  TEXAS FLOOD challenged SUNSET's Duelmaster for a shot at 
the throne.  And it's out with the old, in with the new, as TEXAS FLOOD takes the 
Title and last week's bar tab from the old Duelmaster.  Heh, heh.  Wildlife 
Unlimited, humph!  I've tasted better ale at mortuaries.  Where do they get this 
stuff?  From SUNSET's trash dumps?   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.  
SUNSET, I am losing what little hope I had in you.  BEN'S BAZAAR the most avoided 
team?  What insult will suffice, I cannot say.  And it looks like GRIM FANDANGO 
avoided them the most this turn.  What a pack of would be losers, if you ask me.  
Hmph.  I suspect either a 21 will or a 21 ego on this one, but JACK FROST has 
challenged up by 26 in an attempt against FLASHBACK.  Well, ok, the upstart knave 
(where've I heard that before?) won this match and gained 19 points to boot!  Ha ha 
ha, FLASHBACK.  I guess I can give a little credit to SIGURD YARLSON of DESTINY for 
challenging up by 24 to WAMBASU THE BOLD.  SIGURD YARLSON lost to get 68 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.  And what a stunning loss we have here, 
boys and girls, THAK of RANDOM CHAOS has added the final loss to his 18-18-1.  Tee 
hee!  Bye bye, warrior, bye bye...  BISHOP, a glorious 18-13-1 fighter, has passed 
away.  Gee, too bad BEN'S BAZAAR.  Ya gotta go sometime, and NANNERPUSS' time was 
this time.  Hmmm, not a bad fighter, had he lived... (what?  me pity?).  Titanium 
shields and bamboo daggers, guess what brave team is developing these kinds of 
weapons?   
     What does the SUNSET arena have in common with the inns?  It's just as 
comfortable to sleep in either place.  Ha ha ha ha!  Phlllt!  Just had to do that 
before I leave the fine city of SUNSET.  I feel much better now.  Glad to see the 
back of this place-- Snide Clemens
