                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, LAPUR?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  BLACK SAMURAI turned their 3-2-0 turn 
into a 3rd place rank in the listings this turn.  Any better than this, and you get 
put on hit lists.  Now let's all watch CLAN CROW's heads swell from their 4-0-1 this 
turn.  Haa ha ha ha!  Big shots, big talk, big deal.  Of course, we're all terribly 
impressed to see SPIN MCDUECAN win a fight and gain 27 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, 
PUB O'CONNOR beat SULU and SULU lost 16 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  BISMUTH 
BENDER challenged LAPUR's Duelmaster for a shot at the throne.  And it's out with the 
old, in with the new, as BISMUTH BENDER takes the Title and last week's bar tab from 
the old Duelmaster.  Heh, heh.  The Warty Toad, humph!  I've tasted better ale at 
mortuaries.  Where do they get this stuff?  From LAPUR's trash dumps?   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.  What's 
the big D?  MID EARTH was the most avoided team?  Bunch of lily livered... grumble... 
mumble... curse...  And who led the way in this mass act of cowardice?  Let's see, 
well, whatcha know?  It was METAL MINCERS.  Ha ha ha ha!  Ooh, I'm frightfully 
impressed, CLAYBANK was this turn's most challenged warrior.  Watch that ego swell, 
sports fans.  I guess I can give a little credit to TANE of OPEN HAND for challenging 
up by 19 to SOLWYN.  TANE lost to get 43 points of recognition.   
     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.  Let's see, 7-4-0.  Pretty good record for 
a living warrior.  A sad one though, for a dead one.  Such is the case for BAG OF 
BONES of BOHICA.  Tsk.  Titanium shields and bamboo daggers, guess what brave team is 
developing these kinds of weapons?   
     There's got to be a better place in LAPUR to get a drink than The Warty Toad!  
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 Clemens

Akumu -- You were there.  I challenged.  I won.  I fought better than I did in the
recent Tempe Tournament where I was an embarassment.  But, then, my manager is ALWAYS
an embarassment, so I didn't feel too bad! -- Bismuth Bender

Bis. -- Ye mean Ira?  Aye. -- Oreaster

Spin McDuecan -- Perhaps the top act is inadequate for the arena? -- Steel Sharpener

Wintersong and Snowflake -- A 5-0!  Kudos! -- Ora (happy for you, but somewhat
jealous)
P.S.  I could do that if I had complete control of the Mincers.  I could.

Wenien -- Good challenge.  Good fight. -- Magdala

Mothias -- Ah ha.  It seems I was patiently waiting for you as you patiently waited
for the opening you sought. -- Tane

Gowron -- The Open Hand are a relatively new stable and our warriors struggle to
achieve even a modest record.  But our record against you gives us cause to
celebrate.  Thank you. -- the Open Hand

Ulphor -- Well, despite your Delarquan habits, I suppose congratulations are due for
not only being Duelmaster but also for being the most popular, most recognizable
warrior.  Congratulations. -- the Open Hand

Steel Sharpener -- Yes, I'm sure you would be.  Congratulations on the win. -- Tane

Grassfire -- I've been endurance training but I hit a wall and have been banging my
head against it ever since.  Stubborn I guess.  I've since stopped and, boy, does it
feel good! -- Magdala

We salute the tourney participants. -- Jorja and the Cardow Hunters

Magdala -- People do say that, but I notice them striving for the destination anyway.
-- Grassfire

Jessie -- What a devious little fellow you are, to be sure! -- Jorja

Ah, well, you know how it is with five-oh turns.  Except in one of the overly
intimate little arenas, you don't get two in a row.  Usually. -- the Cardow Hunters,
looking at this turns 3-2

Captain Kirk -- I wish you'd boldly go somewhere else.  Almost anywhere else. --
Claybank

Double McDipper -- Oh, my!  I thought for sure I was going to melt a couple of times.
You can't imagine, or maybe you can, how relieved I was when the temperature started
dropping! -- Snowflake

Solwyn -- Quenched!  But only temporarily.  There are still embers among the roots.
-- Grassfire

So Clean -- Squeaky.  I like that. -- Windflower

These Housewifes just don't "get" winter.  Sure, there's snow tracked in, and sand
from the roads, and all, but so what?  All the best things are messy around the
edges. -- Wintersong
