                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, ZORPUNT?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Later days, 13 YRS & COUNTING, since 
KRILL CAVALRY took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  Of course, 
we're all terribly impressed to see TRISKAIDEKAPHOBIA win a fight and gain 18 points, 
terribly.  Tsk, tsk, STONEFISH beat PINE LEAF and PINE LEAF lost 9 points.  You're 
breakin' my heart.  Due to absence, and inability to defend the throne, GORTHAUR has 
lost the Title of Duelmaster.  Start setting that alarm earlier!  And it's out with 
the old, in with the new, as TELLER FLETE takes the Title and last week's bar tab 
from the old Duelmaster.  Heh, heh.  The Welcome Wench, humph!  I've tasted better 
ale at mortuaries.  Where do they get this stuff?  From ZORPUNT's trash dumps?   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.  Ooh, 
I'm frightfully impressed, TOMBO LARK was this turn's most challenged warrior.  Watch 
that ego swell, sports fans.   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for ZORPUNT's 
morgue.  More variety.  Bye bye, warrior, bye bye...  TOMBO LARK, a glorious 9-20-0 
fighter, has passed away.  Gee, too bad KRILL CAVALRY.  Honor is like a chainmail 
shirt, it only shines through use.  Certain nameless cowards will doubtless rebuke me 
on this one.   
     What does the ZORPUNT 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 ZORPUNT.  I feel much better now.  Glad to see the 
back of this place-- Snide Clemens

Great White Shark -- You...!  You're just a FISH, dammit.  You shouldn't be fight at
ALL, you should be DINNER.  You know, shark steaks.  And sharkskin for the hilts of
our swords, those of us that are REAL people. -- Teller Flete

Great White Shark -- I have no idea why Teller wrote you that personal.  It was me
that you one-shotted, after all, and since you didn't BITE me, I'm not complaining.
Although I wouldn't have MINDED a skill or two. -- Tombo Lark

This Dangerous Criminal, they told me his real name is Kusster, truly is dangerous
and not sane or sensible, either.  I really think it is NOT a good idea to leave him
running around the arena, much less the city, with a sword in his hand.  He likes to
KILL people!  (You'd think he was an Assassin, wouldn't you?  But even they won't
have him.)  We should unite to get rid of him. -- Pine Leaf

So, somebody explain to me the concept of a Fratsfa Slave, here.  Either way you read
it: an enslaved Fratsfan (he's not, he's Aruaki) or somebody enslaved BY the
Fratsfans, is a concept that makes me very uneasy.  There is something simply WRONG
about this. -- Joe Poole

*I* Captured this Orc, and I'm going to stuff his head--not with food--and mount it
on the wall of my den.  I earned that right, didn't I? -- Teller Flete

Triskaidekaphobia -- Remind me to put the Curse of Thirteen on you next time. --
Limpette

Azereth has returned!  I am the manager for Scarlet Blades in DM 25.  I was a member
of the Crimson Alliance and the Crimson Brotherhood (which was composed of former CA
members).  I've been out of the game for many (at least 5) years.  I would like to
hear from anyone who remembers me, as well as any Alliance that is seeking to add
experienced managers to their roster.  Contact me at:
     Anthony Wells
     600 W. Shore Dr.
     Stanton, MI  48888
or by personal ads in DM 25.
