                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
SOLVEN brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  If this keeps up, THE ZOO, you'll 
have to shine swords instead of use them.  A drop of 5 in the rankings?  CONSPIRACY 
INC. turned their 3-2-0 turn into a 1st place rank in the listings this turn.  Any 
better than this, and you get put on hit lists.  Of course, we're all terribly 
impressed to see STAEL win a fight and gain 22 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, STAEL 
beat SNOWBALL and SNOWBALL lost 22 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And if variety 
is the spice of life, SOLVEN may be getting bland, as LUCIAS CLAY stays top dog in 
the city.  Kickbacks and bribes, kickbacks and bribes, how else do you think some of 
these guys win their fights?  Skill?  Ha!   
     My mother always told me, 'If you don't have anything nice to say, start 
talking.' I loved that woman.  What's the big D?  KELLUMBO'S KIDS was the most 
avoided team?  Bunch of lily livered... grumble... mumble... curse...  And it looks 
like CONSPIRACY INC. avoided them the most this turn.  What a pack of would be 
losers, if you ask me.  Hmph.  ZOOIE was challenged more times this turn than the 
Duelmaster.  Now was the DM insulted or feared?  Heh, heh.  ZEBROE was challenged by 
one of KELLUMBO'S KIDS' warriors this turn, with SCHWARZENEGGER having a lead of 20 
points going into the fight.  And sorry to say, SCHWARZENEGGER overcame ZEBROE, 
leaving a bad feeling with the crowd.  I think exploitive snob is the term I'm 
looking for.  I guess I can give a little credit to D.O.A. DOMINANCE of OXYMORONS for 
challenging up by 18 to ZOOIE.  D.O.A. DOMINANCE won to get 59 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.  Titanium shields and bamboo daggers, guess what brave 
team is developing these kinds of weapons?   
     There's got to be a better place in SOLVEN to get a drink than The Victory 
Tavern!  Any suggestions?  Phlllt!  Just had to do that before I leave the fine city 
of SOLVEN.  I feel much better now.  Paste this one in your scrapbooks, you'll need 
the kindling come this winter-- Snide Clemens

Eleanorth -- I take it this is a case of Small Arena Syndrome, nobody else to fight,
hmm?  Life is tough, sometimes.  Good try. -- Zebroe, rather smug

Christine Gregoire -- You were CONSPIRING with the arenamaster to embarrass me in
public, weren't you? -- Zooie

Snowball -- Amazing how somebody so, ahem, ROUND could move so rapidly.  You took me
by surprise, which all theoreticians of combat say is a good plan if you can pull it
off. -- Arishtarte

Kojo Aman -- Not very diplomatic of you. -- John Roberts

Tony Blair -- Thanks for the scumming. -- Brooks and Dunn

Lord Protector Lucious Clay -- What, you want lands?  Why?  You're leaving us, are
you not?  Get lands on the Isle, which are actually the Greywand's to give. --
