                                      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.  Gee, I'm impressed, a 4-1-0 is 
nice, but don't get cocky, KNIGHTS OF LEGEND, the Fates teach humility, and the Fates 
are proud.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed to see BIFFCAKE win a fight and 
gain 21 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, HUSTLER beat VIXEN and VIXEN lost 12 points.  
You're breakin' my heart.  And if variety is the spice of life, NIATOLI ISLAND may be 
getting bland, as INIGO MONTOYA stays top dog in the city.  The Don't Drop Inn, 
humph!  I've tasted better ale at mortuaries.  Where do they get this stuff?  From 
NIATOLI ISLAND's trash dumps?   
     My mother always told me, 'If you don't have anything nice to say, start 
talking.' I loved that woman.  NIATOLI ISLAND, I am losing what little hope I had in 
you.  OBSIDIAN HALL the most avoided team?  What insult will suffice, I cannot say.  
And it looks like KNIGHTS OF LEGEND avoided them the most this turn.  What a pack of 
would be losers, if you ask me.  Hmph.  Ooh, I'm frightfully impressed, BYL 
BONESNAPPER was this turn's most challenged warrior.  Watch that ego swell, sports 
fans.   
     Ah, now we come to my favorite part, where we see all the guys who are dead and 
gone, and get to see if their team cared.  A big yahoo goes out to BYL BONESNAPPER 
this turn, for revenging BIG LAKE BANDITS' bloodfeud against DEMONSPAWN's warrior 
BROCK.  Heh, heh, heh.  Honor is like a chainmail shirt, it only shines through use.  
Certain nameless cowards will doubtless rebuke me on this one.   
     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.  Glad to see the 
back of this place-- Snide Clemens
