                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, JHANS?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed 
to see NICE GUY win a fight and gain 27 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, NICE GUY beat 
MEGATRON and MEGATRON lost 10 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And it's out with 
the old, in with the new, as FEELING MINNESOTA takes the Title and last week's bar 
tab from the old Duelmaster.  Heh, heh.  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, JHANS?   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.  
SERPENTS HOLD, 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 DEVIATION 
avoided them the most this turn.  What a pack of would be losers, if you ask me.  
Hmph.   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for JHANS' 
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?   
     What does the JHANS arena have in common with the inns?  It's just as 
comfortable to sleep in either place.  Ha ha ha ha!  Phlllt!  Just had to do that 
before I leave the fine city of JHANS.  I feel much better now.  Glad to see the back 
of this place-- Snide Clemens

Our congratulations to One Mic. -- Jorja and those who walk the Middle Way

Again one-four, with the win being mine (naturally!).  Dallas is going to lose her
winning record if she doesn't pull up her socks and win some fights here.  And it
will serve her right!  No one likes a snob. -- Ithaca Novum

Feeling Minnesota -- Typical elf!  You'll feel up anything, even a minnesota, instead
of sticking to things that will reciprocate.  I almost feel sorry for you, but you're
an elf, and that's enough to outweigh everything.  Bah. -- Dallas Hillary

20th Century Fox -- It always strikes me as unfair that you aren't female.  And then,
of course, you strike me.... -- Orval Payne, feeling it

Drone D1 -- Think of this as "paying your dues." -- Ithaca Novum

Drone D5 -- I couldn't stand that sound you make.  Reminded me of a visit to the
dentist.  Urg. -- Jonson Orles

Sgt 1 -- Luck is all it was, remember that! -- Lee-Ron Moss
