                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
IAYE brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Later days, THE A'S -- LOSERS II, since 
THE WARLOCKS took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  Gee, I'm 
impressed, a 4-0-0 is nice, but don't get cocky, GAMEHENDGE, the Fates teach 
humility, and the Fates are proud.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed to see 
THE WIND win a fight and gain 11 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, TELA beat FREEDA and 
FREEDA lost 5 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And if variety is the spice of 
life, IAYE may be getting bland, as DARK STAR stays top dog in the city.  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, IAYE?   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.  IAYE, I 
am losing what little hope I had in you.  THE WARLOCKS the most avoided team?  What 
insult will suffice, I cannot say.  And it looks like LENPROS avoided them the most 
this turn.  What a pack of would be losers, if you ask me.  Hmph.  THE RIVER was 
challenged more times this turn than the Duelmaster.  Now was the DM insulted or 
feared?  Heh, heh.   
     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?   
     What does the IAYE arena have in common with the inns?  It's just as comfortable 
to sleep in either place.  Ha ha ha ha!  Phlllt!  Just had to do that before I leave 
the fine city of IAYE.  I feel much better now.  I see the crowds are getting 
restless, I must leave now-- Snide Clemens
