                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
ARVAT brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Later days, APOCALYPSE, since ANGELS 
OF PAIN took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  RAGING HORMONES 
turned their 4-1-0 turn into a 5th place rank in the listings this turn.  Any better 
than this, and you get put on hit lists.  Gee, I'm impressed, a 3-1-0 is nice, but 
don't get cocky, ANGELS OF PAIN, the Fates teach humility, and the Fates are proud.  
Of course, we're all terribly impressed to see JOHN REUBEN win a fight and gain 21 
points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, *JILTED LOVER* beat PLAGUE and PLAGUE lost 9 points.  
You're breakin' my heart.  And it's out with the old, in with the new, as BILL P. 
GORE 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.  DEVIL 
ADVOCATES, 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 it looks like ANGELS OF PAIN avoided 
them the most this turn.  What a pack of would be losers, if you ask me.  Hmph.  Ooh, 
I'm frightfully impressed, SARLOW 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.  And sending ERIN YEES to the Dark Arena 
was supposed to be one of your better ideas, DEVIL ADVOCATES?  We're all going to die 
in the end, so why worry if the fate catches up with you sooner that later?   
     What does the ARVAT 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 ARVAT.  I feel much better now.  I see the crowds are 
getting restless, I must leave now-- Snide Clemens

Unbreakable -- Hey!  I actually looked pretty good there in that title fight!  There
might be hope for me after all! -- Lil Ethe

Killer Jr. -- Jeez.  One week they trot me out to a title fight and the next they
have me bloodfeuding a one fight wonder...  Of course I'm the least skilled of our
remaining warriors, so they tell me I have no choice.  Bloodfeuds are required by our
team charter.  -- Lil Ethe

Sarlow -- Sorry about the pain of the 5 skills.  And the pain of the 3 skills this
turn.  But now I'm on the bench until April, so if you'd like, we can go fishing.
Nothing better than spending some time catching fish! -- Rampage

Death By Design -- Welcome to Arvat.  Not so nice first meeting though... -- Devil
Advocates

Rampage -- Sad to say, you're well named.  You went on a rampage all over me. --
Sarlow

E. Bliss -- A case of bliss being where you find it?  I didn't find it in that fight.
-- Fillis Bouy

Malice -- Totally unangelic.  I think I'll go find a small pond to hang out in. --
Big Minnow

Gluttony -- If my secret admirer brings me chocolate, I don't care. -- Nuparine

An Embezzling Scribe?  I thought I was supposed to start out with Modrant Deserters
and Persistent Beggars.  Still, a win is worth having.  And a couple of skills, as
well. -- Fisher Bates
P.S.  Hmm, the Commission notes that I'm massively charismatic.  Too bad it isn't
good for anything.

Rampage -- I don't mind.  I like to be useful, though I wouldn't mind being
successful, too. -- Sarlow

9 February 10
All -- I know you all thought the old Wiz that is Fiz went off to die somewhere.
Well, I didn't.  Now I'm back to befuddle and frustrate you with my senseless
ramblings.  I look forward to reconnecting with all my old friends and enemies alike.
