                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, JHANS?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Later days, HELTER SKELTER, since LITTLE 
GIRLS LIKE... took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  5440 OR 
FIGHT! turned their 3-1-0 turn into a 5th place rank in the listings this turn.  Any 
better than this, and you get put on hit lists.  Now let's all watch LITTLE GIRLS 
LIKE...'s heads swell from their 3-1-1 this turn.  Haa ha ha ha!  Big shots, big 
talk, big deal.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed to see STARK win a fight and 
gain 17 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, FULL METAL PYLE beat PURPLE BEAR and PURPLE BEAR 
lost 9 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  Going for broke or broken, our Duelmaster 
KRASNOYASK-26 challenged this turn.  And it's out with the old, in with the new, as 
KRASNOYASK-26 takes the Title and last week's bar tab from the old Duelmaster.  Heh, 
heh.  Lucas Lounge, humph!  I've tasted better ale at mortuaries.  Where do they get 
this stuff?  From JHANS' trash dumps?   
     My mother always told me, 'If you don't have anything nice to say, start 
talking.' I loved that woman.  What's the big D?  HELTER SKELTER was the most avoided 
team?  Bunch of lily livered... grumble... mumble... curse...  And who led the way in 
this mass act of cowardice?  Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It was SECTION HATE.  Ha 
ha ha ha!  Ooh, I'm frightfully impressed, BLONDIE was this turn's most challenged 
warrior.  Watch that ego swell, sports fans.  I notice TARGEN challenging down 16 
points to fight M. THRASHER, IRON TIGERS doubtless has some rotten excuse for such an 
insult to honor.  Ha ha aha ha aha ha!!!  TARGEN was was subdued by by 5440 OR 
FIGHT!'s warrior!  Thank the gods for big favors!  ha!  KATHLEEN was challenged by 
one of BLIND HYPOCRISY's warriors this turn, with HALO 14 having a lead of 18 points 
going into the fight.  Question now is, will JHANS accept this sort of tacky 
behavior?  HALO 14 beating KATHLEEN.  The insult, the....yech!  Now look at this.  
BLANKEE challenged down 19 against SECTION HATE's ROEBEAST.  What a weasel!  And 
golly gee, BLANKEE defeated ROEBEAST.  Aren't we all surprised and impressed?  
SOCIETY MENACE was challenged by one of 5440 OR FIGHT!'s warriors this turn, with 
BUCKET HEAD having a lead of 28 points going into the fight.  BUCKET HEAD was 
defeated by SOCIETY MENACE!  Ok, BUCKET HEAD want to fight my grandmother next turn?  
Huh?   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  LITTLE GIRLS LIKE... has cause to pause today, as 
BARBIE 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?   
     There's got to be a better place in JHANS to get a drink than Lucas Lounge!  Any 
suggestions?  Phlllt!  Just had to do that before I leave the fine city of JHANS.  I 
feel much better now.  Paste this one in your scrapbooks, you'll need the kindling 
come this winter-- Snide Clemens

TUM, you out there?  Please drop me an email at ejeffery@techie.com.  I'd like you to
run TUM for me at the Summer FtF.  Thanks, bud. -- Shocking Toad

To All -- Fellow managers, I humbly request your help.  My team (Ex Oblivione) was
started in Monuntial (DM 34) back in '92.  They were active for seven months.  I have
lost all early traces of them.  If any of you can help with copies of relevant
newsletters or, if you fought one of my warriors, copies of the fights, I would
greatly appreciate it.  I only have one of my original warriors left from the early
team now active in DM 60.  You can diplo me with any info here in the wonderful city
of Aradi.  Thank you in advance. -- Enigma, manager Ex Oblivione

Assurnasirbanipal invites all to use his computerized warrior management tool.  The
program is the most extensive management tool ever created.  It was meant to run on a
PALM OS PDA, but will run (emulated) on a PC or MAC.  You can get this program on the
web at: http://www.geocities.com/assurnasir

27 May 2003
A note to everyone regarding manager names and manager lists -- If you're running a
team incognito, all you have to do is let me know and I won't put your name on any
manager lists.  It has seemed though, that more people want their names listed, even
if they do not announce themselves, than the other way around.  Also, I do maintain
the list more or less by hand and errors do creep in.  You have but to say I've made
an error and no one will be the wiser (except thee and me, of course). -- The Saint,
