                                      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.  ANGELS OF PAIN turned their 3-2-0 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, 
ASSORTED, the Fates teach humility, and the Fates are proud.  Of course, we're all 
terribly impressed to see HANNANNA win a fight and gain 22 points, terribly.  Tsk, 
tsk, HANNANNA beat TGG and TGG lost 15 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And it's 
out with the old, in with the new, as FATHER O'LIES 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!   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.  
What's the big D?  DEVIL ADVOCATES 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 ANGELS OF PAIN.  Ha ha ha ha!  
THOMASO was challenged more times this turn than the Duelmaster.  Now was the DM 
insulted or feared?  Heh, heh.  And we have BROTHER LOVEJOY in a challenge, going 
down 11 points for the fight.  Guess what?  I thought BROTHER LOVEJOY showed great 
skill and promise when he was subdued by BARRY THE BOLD.  All right, so I slept 
through it!  Big deal!   
     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 ARVAT to get a drink than The Welcome Wench! 
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
