                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, ARVAT?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  ASSORTED turned their 2-0-0 turn into a 
2nd place rank in the listings this turn.  Any better than this, and you get put on 
hit lists.  ARVAT saw the first turn for PAINFUL THOUGHT, a 2-1-0, and some teams are 
scared, others are too arrogant to notice.  Take note friends, take note.  Of course, 
we're all terribly impressed to see MATHEU win a fight and gain 21 points, terribly.  
Tsk, tsk, MATHEU beat DISTORTION and DISTORTION lost 18 points.  You're breakin' my 
heart.  And it's out with the old, in with the new, as PETROV 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!   
     My mother always told me, 'If you don't have anything nice to say, start 
talking.' I loved that woman.  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 CALL 
THE PRIEST.  Ha ha ha ha!  Ooh, I'm frightfully impressed, SAMPSON was this turn's 
most challenged warrior.  Watch that ego swell, sports fans.  I guess I can give a 
little credit to MISS TEARY of SECRET SQUIRRELS for challenging up by 25 to SAMPSON.  
MISS TEARY won to get 54 points of recognition.  And we have TIA MATTE in a 
challenge, going down 10 points for the fight.  Guess what?  I thought TIA MATTE 
showed great skill and promise when she won victory over CATFISH ANNIE.  All right, 
so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  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.  I see the crowds are getting restless, I 
must leave now-- Snide Clemens

Still short on time, but I'm told I can only use that excuse once a month, and I may
need it later.  So....
