                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, ZENSU?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed 
to see WARRIOR EIGHT win a fight and gain 13 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, NIGHTMARE 
GARCIA beat SOLDIER 4 and SOLDIER 4 lost 1 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And if 
variety is the spice of life, ZENSU may be getting bland, as SOLO 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, ZENSU?   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.   
     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?   
     There's got to be a better place in ZENSU to get a drink than The Victory 
Tavern!  Any suggestions?  Phlllt!  Just had to do that before I leave the fine city 
of ZENSU.  I feel much better now.  I see the crowds are getting restless, I must 
leave now-- Snide Clemens
