                                      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 CRAY DAIZY win a fight and gain 20 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, 
GRANDMA'S FAN beat SALMON POACHER and SALMON POACHER lost 7 points.  You're breakin' 
my heart.  Due to absence, and inability to defend the throne, ASKELIA has lost the 
Title of Duelmaster.  Start setting that alarm earlier!  And it's out with the old, 
in with the new, as SCUTTLEBUTT 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!   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.  What's 
the big D?  RAVAGING LORDS was the most avoided team?  Bunch of lily livered... 
grumble... mumble... curse...  And it looks like HALLOWIENERS avoided them the most 
this turn.  What a pack of would be losers, if you ask me.  Hmph.  MANUTE BOL 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.  We're all going to die in the end, so why worry if 
the fate catches up with you sooner that later?   
     There's got to be a better place in NIATOLI ISLAND to get a drink than The Don't 
Drop Inn!  Any suggestions?  Phlllt!  Just had to do that before I leave the fine 
city of NIATOLI ISLAND.  I feel much better now.  Glad to see the back of this 
place-- Snide Clemens
