                                      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.  Later days, AMAZONS, since MASTERS 
OF SIN took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  Now keep the taverns 
open late tonight, for there are sorrows to drown for THE RED BLADES, whose 0-0-0 
this turn dropped them by 6 into 10th.  Ha!  MADTOWN turned their 2-2-0 turn into a 
4th 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 ROSE O'SHARON win a fight 
and gain 21 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, VIRGINAL CONCUBINE beat HARMONY and HARMONY 
lost 11 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And it's out with the old, in with the 
new, as JUST A WIN takes the Title and last week's bar tab from the old Duelmaster.  
Heh, heh.  The Piper's Rest, humph!  I've tasted better ale at mortuaries.  Where do 
they get this stuff?  From LYRATILAN's trash dumps?   
     My mother always told me, 'If you don't have anything nice to say, start 
talking.' I loved that woman.  FACES OF DEATH, I suppose you'll be glad to know you 
were this turn's most avoided team.  Care to know who is the most afraid of you?  And 
who led the way in this mass act of cowardice?  Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It 
was MASTERS OF SIN.  Ha ha ha ha!  Ooh, I'm frightfully impressed, FEDER JORNIS was 
this turn's most challenged warrior.  Watch that ego swell, sports fans.   
     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.  Titanium shields and bamboo daggers, guess 
what brave team is developing these kinds of weapons?   
     I was about to buy a new quill pen the other day, but some fighter took it for 
an epee.  Forgive me for writing with a dagger.  Phlllt!  Just had to do that before 
I leave the fine city of LYRATILAN.  I feel much better now.  I see the crowds are 
getting restless, I must leave now-- Snide Clemens
