                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
ZENSU brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Of course, we're all terribly 
impressed to see KING LOVE win a fight and gain 21 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, KING 
LOVE beat DEAD DUCK and DEAD DUCK lost 17 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And if 
variety is the spice of life, ZENSU may be getting bland, as BIRDBRAIN 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!   
     My mother always told me, 'If you don't have anything nice to say, start 
talking.' I loved that woman.  CARNIVAL, 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 who 
led the way in this mass act of cowardice?  Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It was 
WIMPS MOST FOWL.  Ha ha ha ha!  Ooh, I'm frightfully impressed, JUDAS PRIEST was this 
turn's most challenged warrior.  Watch that ego swell, sports fans.   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  Honor is like a chainmail shirt, it only shines 
through use.  Certain nameless cowards will doubtless rebuke me on this one.   
     What does the ZENSU arena have in common with the inns?  It's just as 
comfortable to sleep in either place.  Ha ha ha ha!  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

Bird Brain -- Congrats on taking the DM. -- Carny

Judas -- How could you fall from DM into the depths?  How?  How? -- Carny

All Note -- What must be a new world record 48 pt. gain teams moving. -- Carny

War Report -- The war vs. Sianna goes well.  One-Man Band prepares to attack with all
notes out of tune.  Senna will flee. -- Klumsy Tumbles

Jophan -- Exercise!  Exercise! -- Foil D'Agen

Sianna -- En garde!  One-Man Band prepares to attack. -- Quaky Asp

Jimmy Cricket -- Odds on you were high. -- One-Man Band

Foil D'Agen -- Tish.  You didn't NEED that, you know. -- Jophan

Quacky Asp -- Actually, you're a fowler wimp, in your way, than the wimpy fowls.  A
paradox of a sort, or maybe just a dox and a half. -- Sianna

Big Bop -- I think it was the second bop that did for me. -- Teris

Fluster -- (annoyed hiss) -- Tiger Elf

Gee, I didn't realize the Mordant Deserter was so fragile. -- Arnie El Shew

Birdbrain -- (paling)  No, I didn't like them at all. -- Jophan

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,
keeper of lists
