                                      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.  Of course, we're all terribly 
impressed to see SNOWBALL win a fight and gain 29 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, BROOKS 
AND DUNN beat BIFF STREICHER and BIFF STREICHER lost 20 points.  You're breakin' my 
heart.  And if variety is the spice of life, SOLVEN may be getting bland, as SUPPLY 
SIDE 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!   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.  
What's the big D?  THE REPUBLICANS was the most avoided team?  Bunch of lily 
livered... grumble... mumble... curse...  And who led the way in this mass act of 
cowardice?  Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It was KELLUMBO'S KIDS.  Ha ha ha ha!  
JOHN ROBERTS was challenged more times this turn than the Duelmaster.  Now was the DM 
insulted or feared?  Heh, heh.  And we have SMELLY in a challenge, going down 14 
points for the fight.  Guess what?  I thought SMELLY showed great skill and promise 
when he overcame BENITO CHATTE.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     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, ARISHTARTE of THE ZOO has added the final loss to hers 15-19-1.  Tee 
hee!  We're all going to die in the end, so why worry if the fate catches up with you 
sooner that later?   
     What does the SOLVEN arena have in common with the inns?  It's just as 
comfortable to sleep in either place.  Ha ha ha ha!  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

Judge -- Sounds like we have ourselves a little contest.  With the start of the new
year, first one to 25 wins in Solven wins.  Downchallenges don't count towards the 25
wins.  Winning manager gets to pick a warrior of his choice from the losing manager's
stable, and the loser must Dark Arena that warrior next turn.  Sound fair?  As for
what this will prove?  Not sure, but it will certainly be nice seeing you toss one of
your babies in the garbage in a few months. -- Kellumbo

Brooks and Dunn -- One for Brooks and two for Dunn.  Gotcha. -- Arishtarte

Cepacol -- I don't much like those drugs, you know?  Drugs upset my stomach. --
Zebroe
P.S.  So does being hit there.

Blizzard -- Well, they SAY that freezing is an easy death, but I surely didn't find
it so.  It HURTS. -- Ghost of Zooie

Smelly -- Kods, I cad' sdad do be id de areda wid you! -- Kurlouie

John Roberts -- Hmm, like that, hey?  I think I can handle that. -- Benito Chatte,
probably unreasonable in his optimism

Ed. -- It will come to you.  No need to go rushing after paranoia. -- Kurlouie

     Ah, many are called but few are chosen?  No, that can't be right. -- Ed.

5 November 2005
It is with a proud heart that I announce the newest member of the Desolate Empire
alliance.  Dok Sik will be known from here forth as Dark Knight Dok Sik, of the
Desolate Empire.  May he be blessed with victory and courage.  May his enemies' blood
flow freely! -- The Dark Knights Wasby and Toker
