                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
LYRATILAN brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Now let's all watch MY FIRST 
TEAM's heads swell from their 4-0-0 this turn.  Haa ha ha ha!  Big shots, big talk, 
big deal.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed to see SPIDERMAN win a fight and 
gain 15 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, SPIDERMAN beat MAELSTROM and MAELSTROM lost 11 
points.  You're breakin' my heart.  PUPPET challenged LYRATILAN's Duelmaster for a 
shot at the throne.  The Duelmaster's Dead!  Long live the Duelmaster!  Ha!  PUPPET 
has killed GIGLIE in the Title bout, and this bout ain't over yet!  The Piper's Rest, 
humph!  I've tasted better ale at mortuaries.  Where do they get this stuff?  From 
LYRATILAN's trash dumps?   
     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.  GREAT UNKNOWN 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, PUPPET was this turn's most challenged warrior.  Watch that 
ego swell, sports fans.  I suspect either a 21 will or a 21 ego on this one, but FLEX 
has challenged up by 29 in an attempt against CHAVIN DE HUANTAR.  Well, ok, the 
upstart knave (where've I heard that before?) won this match and gained 23 points to 
boot!  Ha ha ha, CHAVIN DE HUANTAR.  I guess I can give a little credit to KING OF 
QUAM of EASTERN HORDE for challenging up by 25 to VINCE.  KING OF QUAM won to get 58 
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.  It's about time FOIRENE ILMER got beat for picking on 
warriors like MARTA.  Bravo, AMAZONS.  See you at The Piper's Rest.  Honor is like a 
chainmail shirt, it only shines through use.  Certain nameless cowards will doubtless 
rebuke me on this one.   
     There's got to be a better place in LYRATILAN to get a drink than The Piper's 
Rest!  Any suggestions?  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

Jifi -- We had to do it.  Just for honor's sake. -- Sheza Banshee

Harmony -- You are a fine opponent. -- Coral Eden

Giggle -- You could have left me the DM title since you are leaving anyway. -- Chavin
De Huantar

Doberum Hannis -- You are sweet.  You deserve another get-away day.  Where shall we
go this time?  Someplace warm and sunny.  And with good food. -- Demsiado Pesado

Foirene Ilmar -- Thanks for making my first fight a win. -- Wanderlei Rua

Flex -- That's indecent.  Even if you CAN flex that, you shouldn't do it in PUBLIC.
-- X. Rolph Tupp
P.S.  And I'm not going to bite YOUR neck, what if that...that scandalous behavior is
catching?

Demsiado Pesado -- Aw, c'mon, don't be such a cold fish, babe. -- Doberum Hannis

Maelstrom -- Well, I think you're crazy, but what could anyone expect from a citizen
of Madtown?  Ah, don't answer that, because I know.  I expect MORE SKILLS.  Please.
-- Trellin Xiss

Wanderlei Rua -- How can you be a GREAT Unknown if you're shorter than me?  I accept
the "unknown" part, because I haven't got a CLUE.  But--  Wait a minute, why didn't
either of us learn any skills?  Is there a skill-supressor at work here?  I think we
should look INTO that, and right away. -- Fiorene Ilmer

Spiderman -- Listen, I'm not going to sit on a damned tuffet for you! -- Feder Jornis

Our heartfelt congratulations to Giglie and Carnage. -- Jorja and the Middle Way

I have not been receiving my physical turns in a reliable manner lately.  If there
are diplos with the turns that go missing, they're gone for good.  So if you send me
a diplo and do not see an acknowledgement of receipt in the personals, know that I
have not gotten it (yet).  If you have email, contact me at Livia AT reality DOT com.
If you don't have email, keep trying with the diplos.  We are working on this
problem. -- the Scribe/Jorja/Leeta
P.S.  If you email me, put "Re DM" on the subject line.
