                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
MURSKA brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Later days, PHILANTHROPISTS, since 
CHILDREN OF LLYR took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  Of course, 
we're all terribly impressed to see KNUCKLE win a fight and gain 12 points, terribly. 
Tsk, tsk, KNUCKLE beat THEROD and THEROD lost 7 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  
Going for broke or broken, our Duelmaster TOURNEY SCUM challenged this turn.  And if 
variety is the spice of life, MURSKA may be getting bland, as ALE'CHAI TALLSKY 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, MURSKA?   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.  MURSKA, 
I am losing what little hope I had in you.  LOST CAUSE the most avoided team?  What 
insult will suffice, I cannot say.  And it looks like PHILANTHROPISTS avoided them 
the most this turn.  What a pack of would be losers, if you ask me.  Hmph.  Ooh, I'm 
frightfully impressed, CLYDE was this turn's most challenged warrior.  Watch that ego 
swell, sports fans.   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for MURSKA's 
morgue.  More variety.  We're all going to die in the end, so why worry if the fate 
catches up with you sooner that later?   
     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.  Well, I've had enough of this 
drivel, and I'm sure you have too.  Off like a dirty shirt of padded leather.  Paste 
this one in your scrapbooks, you'll need the kindling come this winter-- Snide
