                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
CLIFFHOME brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Of course, we're all terribly 
impressed to see LUM BUSBY win a fight and gain 20 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, LUM 
BUSBY beat ZAG and ZAG lost 16 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And if variety is 
the spice of life, CLIFFHOME may be getting bland, as GURU GNU 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, CLIFFHOME?   
     My mother always told me, 'If you don't have anything nice to say, start 
talking.' I loved that woman.  JINDA-BAN, 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 TEAM TRIANGLE avoided them the most this turn.  What a pack of would be 
losers, if you ask me.  Hmph.  BENT FENDER was challenged more times this turn than 
the Duelmaster.  Now was the DM insulted or feared?  Heh, heh.   
     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.  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.  I see 
the crowds are getting restless, I must leave now-- Snide Clemens

being lands or some reasonable facsimile.  Ah... would you take a facsimile?  I could
