                                      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.  Of course, we're all terribly 
impressed to see DARK JOURNEY win a fight and gain 16 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, 
DARK JOURNEY beat MONOLYTH and MONOLYTH lost 12 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  
And if variety is the spice of life, NIATOLI ISLAND may be getting bland, as KOBALT 
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.  
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 it looks like STORM BRINGERS 
avoided them the most this turn.  What a pack of would be losers, if you ask me.  
Hmph.  Ooh, I'm frightfully impressed, THE MONGOL was this turn's most challenged 
warrior.  Watch that ego swell, sports fans.  THE MONGOL was challenged by one of 
STORM BRINGERS' warriors this turn, with TALON STORM having a lead of 16 points going 
into the fight.  Ha ha aha ha aha ha!!!  TALON STORM was was overcame by by RAVAGING 
LORDS' warrior!  Thank the gods for big favors!  ha!   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for NIATOLI 
ISLAND's morgue.  More variety.  I could say I saw this coming, but so could anyone 
else.  Anyway, this turn it came.  RANGER's 10-9-1 has earned him the Dark Arena.  
SEA DOGS has cause to pause today, as CRAB SMASHER was sent to the Dark Arena, and 
came back--though not in the best of moods, I'll wager.  Titanium shields and bamboo 
daggers, guess what brave team is developing these kinds of weapons?   
     I was about to buy a new quill pen the other day, but some fighter took it for 
an epee.  Forgive me for writing with a dagger.  Phlllt!  Just had to do that before 
I leave the fine city of NIATOLI ISLAND.  I feel much better now.  Paste this one in 
your scrapbooks, you'll need the kindling come this winter-- Snide Clemens

Jorja -- Sorry for the loss of Carolina Lily.  She was a fine opponent. -- Talon
Storm

Jorja -- Sorry about that down challenge.  I try to reserve that for Gen. Girlpants.
Not sure how that happened. -- Rake

Gen. Girlpants -- Poor guy.  Another losing record against me AGAIN this turn.  I
suppose you're used to that by now.  You went 1W, 2L against me this turn.  A far cry
from the 5-0 you predicted.  Or did you mean 0-5?  That's more realistic. -- Uncle
Rake
P.S.  Five awards, two turns in a row.  Thank YOU for all these free fights.  Current
top team, Storm Bringers.  Looks good, doesn't it?

Winter Thaw -- Glad you're sticking around. -- Rake and the Storm Bringers

Jorja -- My apologies for Caroliana Lilly.  I only down challenge against the General
band of girls so I'm not sure how that happened.  I hope the replacement was good. --
Rake

Sea Dogs -- Glad to have you guys here.  Stick around. -- Rake

Kobalt -- Yeah, I seen that also.  The whole town did.  The General's "camel" was
actually a goat, and the person he was chasing was Pat, his sister/girlfriend.
(Niatoli shold have laws against that.)  The goat was driking out of the same beer
mug as Pat.  That's why the General got mad.  The jealous bugger. -- Uncle Rake

Gen. Girlpants -- Hey!  Good job!  Don't drink yourself to death over this,
everything will return to normal this turn. -- Uncle Rake

Ranger -- Somehow I get the feeling things went wrong in that fight, but damned if I
can put a finger on the problem.  Or want to, for that matter. -- Dirty Howel

The Oshkshi Noble'sh a fool.  But we knew that. -- Drunkard's Path

Oyster Shucker -- Euwh, throwing those slimy things at me was not necessary. -- Lone
Star

We salute the tourney participants. -- Jorja and the Sewing Circle
