                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, LYRATILAN?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  FUNKY FOLK turned their 3-1-0 turn into 
a 3rd 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 FLEX win a fight and gain 
20 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, ERHLIE FAY beat SHEZA BANSHEE and SHEZA BANSHEE lost 
1 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And it's out with the old, in with the new, as 
THEODORIC takes the Title and last week's bar tab from the old Duelmaster.  Heh, heh. 
I'm not in a very good mood today, but why am I telling you this?  You want to know 
what's new, don't you, LYRATILAN?   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.  
LYRATILAN, I am losing what little hope I had in you.  MADTOWN 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 ERRATA.  Ha ha ha ha!  Ooh, I'm 
frightfully impressed, QUIA SALIAN was this turn's most challenged warrior.  Watch 
that ego swell, sports fans.   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for LYRATILAN's 
morgue.  More variety.  We're all going to die in the end, so why worry if the fate 
catches up with you sooner that later?   
     There's got to be a better place in LYRATILAN to get a drink than The Mourngrym 
Inn and Tavern!  Any suggestions?  Well, I've had enough of this drivel, and I'm sure 
you have too.  Off like a dirty shirt of padded leather.  Paste this one in your 
scrapbooks, you'll need the kindling come this winter-- Snide Clemens
