                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
NIATOLI ISLAND brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Later days, BAD COMPANY, 
since RAVAGING LORDS took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  
RAVAGING LORDS turned their 4-1-0 turn into a 1st 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 KAZANSKI win a fight and gain 17 points, terribly.  Tsk, 
tsk, CONVICTED ASSASSIN beat THE CRIPPLER and THE CRIPPLER lost 11 points.  You're 
breakin' my heart.  SNORK SLAYMORE Bloodfeuded PRIZE FIGHTER for NIATOLI ISLAND's 
Title this turn, and guess what happened?  And if variety is the spice of life, 
NIATOLI ISLAND may be getting bland, as SNORK SLAYMORE 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, NIATOLI ISLAND?   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.  NIATOLI 
ISLAND, I am losing what little hope I had in you.  RAVAGING LORDS the most avoided 
team?  What insult will suffice, I cannot say.  And it looks like BAD COMPANY avoided 
them the most this turn.  What a pack of would be losers, if you ask me.  Hmph.  
TEDDY NASH was challenged more times this turn than the Duelmaster.  Now was the DM 
insulted or feared?  Heh, heh.  I notice SOCIETY RED challenging down 18 points to 
fight BALBASORE, JAILBIRDS doubtless has some rotten excuse for such an insult to 
honor.  And sorry to say, SOCIETY RED defeated BALBASORE, leaving a bad feeling with 
the crowd.  I think exploitive snob is the term I'm looking for.  Now look at this.  
THE ANVIL challenged down 23 against JAILBIRDS' VIOLATION.  What a weasel!  Question 
now is, will NIATOLI ISLAND accept this sort of tacky behavior?  THE ANVIL beating 
VIOLATION.  The insult, the....yech!   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for NIATOLI 
ISLAND's morgue.  More variety.  Gee, JAILBIRDS, ain't it past due for sending SEXUAL 
PREDATOR Dark Arena?  What took ol' '10-5-0' so long?  Hope?  Ha ha aha ha!  Now hey, 
I like to see a death as much as the next guy, but hey JAILBIRDS, whyja send SEXUAL 
PREDATOR to the Dark Arena, look at his record, huh?  And what a stunning loss we 
have here, boys and girls, AAURICK SILVERSHOE of BIG LAKE BANDITS has added the final 
loss to his 5-3-0.  Tee hee!  Seriously now, is it really honorable for RICO SAVVY 
from BAD COMPANY to kill AAURICK SILVERSHOE and give BIG LAKE BANDITS the chance to 
bloodfeud?  Mmmm, could be.  Honor is like a chainmail shirt, it only shines through 
use.  Certain nameless cowards will doubtless rebuke me on this one.   
     What does the NIATOLI ISLAND arena have in common with the inns?  It's just as 
comfortable to sleep in either place.  Ha ha ha ha!  Just wait 'till next time I show 
up here, I won't be so nice!  So nyaaah!  I see the crowds are getting restless, I 
must leave now-- Snide Clemens
