                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, NIATOLI ISLAND?  Ain't you never seen Snide 
Clemens before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Of course, we're all terribly 
impressed to see THE TUSKER win a fight and gain 24 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, THE 
TUSKER beat ACE HEARTS HAMMER and ACE HEARTS HAMMER lost 16 points.  You're breakin' 
my heart.  And if variety is the spice of life, NIATOLI ISLAND may be getting bland, 
as THE PIKER 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?   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.  
RAVAGING LORDS, 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 who led the way in this mass 
act of cowardice?  Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It was STORM BRINGERS.  Ha ha ha 
ha!  THE MONK was challenged more times this turn than the Duelmaster.  Now was the 
DM insulted or feared?  Heh, heh.   
     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 NIATOLI ISLAND to get a drink than The Don't 
Drop Inn!  Any suggestions?  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
