                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
LAPUR brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Of course, we're all terribly 
impressed to see LINNAEUS win a fight and gain 19 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, YEZURA 
beat NEKODA and NEKODA lost 5 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And it's out with 
the old, in with the new, as ZOT takes the Title and last week's bar tab from the old 
Duelmaster.  Heh, heh.  Kickbacks and bribes, kickbacks and bribes, how else do you 
think some of these guys win their fights?  Skill?  Ha!   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.  THE 
TAKEN, 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 BLACK SAMURAI.  Ha ha ha ha!   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  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 LAPUR to get a drink than The Burning Tree!  
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.  Glad to see the back of this place-- Snide 
Clemens

Red Mare -- I am so annoyed at you!  Getting my race correct had nothing to do with
height, it was the imposed hairiness I couldn't stand. -- Dances with Rain

Two-three again, and our non-dwarf Dances with Rain did manage a win this time.  Not
over a standby, either!  Good work to her. -- Red Mare, for the Cardow Hunters

Draaf -- Ugh, somehow, even though you aren't short, I keep expecting you to be
hirsute.  Horrid image!  I salute your non-hairiness and point out that it WAS luck
that you win.  I was all set to kick you, but I threw a Shew instead.  A mistake. --
Red Mare

Shine -- I'm a sucker for bling. -- Sandstorm

Belize -- You made me think of a tropical vacation, and I got all excited. --
Windglass

Arlus -- You might as well be called Argus, you seemed to see me coming from any
direction. -- Hunter

Wyren -- For a bean-pole, you aren't bad. -- Dances With Rain

Jayla -- Nothing personal, but right now I would prefer a date with your teammate.
Aside from the fact that my last four fights have been against either you or Ravage,
there's that whole shot-at-the-throne thing. -- Zot

Risui -- Wow, what a difference. -- Mosidae

Dances with Rain -- Well, popularity and a nice train.  I guess that's worth a loss.
-- Wyren
P.S.  I think you'd look cute as a dwarf.

Toadsmacker -- Interesting name.  Unfortunately for you, I am not a toad. --
