                                      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.  Later days, EXOTIC TASTES, since 
PHILANTHROPISTS took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  Of course, 
we're all terribly impressed to see DURNIS win a fight and gain 16 points, terribly.  
Tsk, tsk, BLOOD BATH beat DELLIS LINZ and DELLIS LINZ lost 3 points.  You're breakin' 
my heart.  Our last turn's Duelmaster has lost, folks, lost to M. CHARDINEE, and 
CRAZY TRAIN has made the way for a new Duelmaster!  With CRAZY TRAIN clearing the 
throne, PHILANTHROPISTS of DRIZZT takes a proud seat as ZENSU's new Duelmaster, by 
virtue of recognition points.  The Victory Tavern, humph!  I've tasted better ale at 
mortuaries.  Where do they get this stuff?  From ZENSU's trash dumps?   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.  
ZENSU, I am losing what little hope I had in you.  EXOTIC TASTES the most avoided 
team?  What insult will suffice, I cannot say.  And it looks like PHILANTHROPISTS 
avoided them the most this turn.  What a pack of would be losers, if you ask me.  
Hmph.  Ooh, I'm frightfully impressed, O. POSTE was this turn's most challenged 
warrior.  Watch that ego swell, sports fans.  O. POSTE was challenged by one of 
PHILANTHROPISTS' warriors this turn, with DRIZZT having a lead of 21 points going 
into the fight.  Question now is, will ZENSU accept this sort of tacky behavior?  
DRIZZT beating O. POSTE.  The insult, the....yech!   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for ZENSU's 
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?   
     There's got to be a better place in ZENSU to get a drink than The Victory 
Tavern!  Any suggestions?  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

Well, well, Aragorn, well done!  Now all you need are some blood and guts and KILLS!
-- Pretty Pandora

Still, no one has seen that scum of a husband, Artemis Stormme The Soultaker?  When I
get my hands on him he will feel the wrath of the Demoness! -- Pandora Of The Pretty
Legs

Crazy Train -- Listen, guy, I gotta tell you this.  You're crazy.  Totally fruit
loops.  Not a doubt about it. -- O. Poste
P.S.  But we like you anyway.
P.P.S.  Because you're HERE.

Paranoid -- If you keep DOING that, I really WILL be OUT TO GET YOU.  Along with any
other members of this arena who happen to appear (don't hold your breath). -- Dellis
Linz
P.S.  Two skills is good.  Thank you.

I don't care WHAT people say about it being "tough all over," it still seems very
strange to have a dwarf as a beggar. -- Darron Linz
P.S.  Of course, given that he has been reduced to begging, it DOES make sense for
him to be persistent.  That is a very dwarvish attitude.

Pandora -- If this is YOUR Zensu, why aren't you active here?  We need you, blood-
thirst and all. -- Leeta, Beyond the Pale

Just a reminder to all you online type people.  It is much appreciated if you send
your personals in PLAIN TEXT, rather than HTML or formatted text.  HAL, in his
infinite wisdom, doesn't DO formatting, which means having to unsnarl your personal
ads from bunches of extraneous...stuff.  So, if your e-mailer has a plain text
option, let it be your friend. -- Ed.
P.S.  Sometimes it's the formatted text which makes ads go astray.  Not often, but
sometimes.
