                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, IAYE?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens before? 
Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Later days, LENPROS, since CRYSTAL PALACE 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 LOVE LETTERS, whose 0-0-0 this turn 
dropped them by 6 into 8th.  Ha!  THE WARLOCKS turned their 3-0-0 turn into a 3rd 
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 UNSCATHED win a fight and gain 
23 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, LORD WALTON beat CELL BLABBER and CELL BLABBER lost 
16 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  Due to absence, and inability to defend the 
throne, TRIPLE-X has lost the Title of Duelmaster.  Start setting that alarm earlier! 
And it's out with the old, in with the new, as TALKIN' CAMEL WALK takes the Title and 
last week's bar tab from the old Duelmaster.  Heh, heh.  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?  
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.  
What's the big D?  CRYSTAL PALACE was the most avoided team?  Bunch of lily 
livered... grumble... mumble... curse...  And it looks like LENPROS avoided them the 
most this turn.  What a pack of would be losers, if you ask me.  Hmph.   
     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.  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 IAYE to get a drink than The Wharf Rat!  Any 
suggestions?  Phlllt!  Just had to do that before I leave the fine city of IAYE.  I 
feel much better now.  Glad to see the back of this place-- Snide Clemens

To those involved, no, I have not abandoned your stories.  But I've been letting them
drift, and that has to stop, so I am taking the time to make sure that I know where
they are going, more than just "what happens next" dreamed up on the fly, before
resuming work on them.  No new stories will be started until at least one of the old
ones has concluded, for the same reason:  quantity can't substitute for quality.
Your patience in this matter is appreciated. -- the Scribe
