                                      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 JEROME win a fight and gain 10 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, JEROME 
beat IO OLDEND and IO OLDEND lost 7 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And if 
variety is the spice of life, SOLVEN may be getting bland, as NAFISAH stays top dog 
in the city.  The Victory Tavern, humph!  I've tasted better ale at mortuaries.  
Where do they get this stuff?  From SOLVEN's trash dumps?   
     My mother always told me, 'If you don't have anything nice to say, start 
talking.' I loved that woman.  SOLVEN, I am losing what little hope I had in you.  
4-LETTER CURSE WORDS the most avoided team?  What insult will suffice, I cannot say.  
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!  Now look at this.  JACKSON challenged down 16 
against MIDDLE WAY 15's DOLBY JOSSEL.  What a weasel!  Question now is, will SOLVEN 
accept this sort of tacky behavior?  JACKSON beating DOLBY JOSSEL.  The insult, 
the....yech!  I guess I can give a little credit to D.O.A. DOMINANCE of OXYMORONS for 
challenging up by 23 to BELISSA HOUGH.  D.O.A. DOMINANCE won to get 82 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.  KELLUMBO'S KIDS has cause to pause today, as BYE BYE 
JUDGE was sent to the Dark Arena, and came back--though not in the best of moods, 
I'll wager.  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!  Glad to see the back of this place-- Snide

Jackson -- What an uppity woman. -- Dolby Jossel
P.S.  If you happen to be my secret admirer, uh, thanks and all that, but who wants
to get cozy with a woman who can be COUNTED ON to take him down four notches any time
he makes a mistake?  It's unsporting.

Griff -- I always have liked cats, but I've also always understood that one must
NEVER let them get the upper hand. -- Io Oldend

Nafisah -- Hang onto that title, ma'am.  I would surely not want to hold it myself.
Talk about your hot potatoes! -- Edgiles Kapp
P.S.  Although with sour cream and chives....  Hmm.

Szrikt Stonefist, Non-Khalhums Dwarf -- You could write me a personal without
defeating me, you know.  It's allowed.  Just a friendly line or two. -- Belissa Hough

D.O.A. Dominance -- You know, I don't think I'm going to touch that one with maul. --
