                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, CLIFFHOME?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Gee, I'm impressed, a 4-0-0 is nice, but 
don't get cocky, BOY O'S, the Fates teach humility, and the Fates are proud.  Of 
course, we're all terribly impressed to see LUM BUSBY win a fight and gain 22 points, 
terribly.  Tsk, tsk, ROMEO beat WHEELIE JUNE and WHEELIE JUNE lost 16 points.  You're 
breakin' my heart.  AVERAGE JOE challenged CLIFFHOME's Duelmaster for a shot at the 
throne.  And if variety is the spice of life, CLIFFHOME may be getting bland, as 
RUMAKI stays top dog in the city.  Kickbacks and bribes, kickbacks and bribes, how 
else do you think some of these guys win their fights?  Skill?  Ha!   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.  
What's the big D?  U.A.K. 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 BOY O'S.  Ha ha ha ha!  KARTIKAYA was 
challenged more times this turn than the Duelmaster.  Now was the DM insulted or 
feared?  Heh, heh.  I guess I can give a little credit to RINGO of BOY O'S for 
challenging up by 20 to KARTIKAYA.  RINGO won to get 53 points of recognition.   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  Whoa!  I'll even buy TORCHLIGHT KID a drink tonight!  
Anyone who can come back from the Dark Arena, I want to be on his good side!  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.  Just wait 'till next time I show up 
here, I won't be so nice!  So nyaaah!  Glad to see the back of this place-- Snide 
Clemens
