                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
KATI-TEI brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Later days, WANDERERS, since MEDAL 
OF HONOR 26 took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  Of course, 
we're all terribly impressed to see THAI win a fight and gain 21 points, terribly.  
Tsk, tsk, THAI beat OSPRY and OSPRY lost 13 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And 
if variety is the spice of life, KATI-TEI may be getting bland, as 5 GOT PICKED 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, KATI-TEI?   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.  
KATI-TEI, I am losing what little hope I had in you.  WANDERERS the most avoided 
team?  What insult will suffice, I cannot say.  And who led the way in this mass act 
of cowardice?  Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It was MEDAL OF HONOR 26.  Ha ha ha 
ha!  VELESTEN was challenged more times this turn than the Duelmaster.  Now was the 
DM insulted or feared?  Heh, heh.   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for KATI-TEI'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?   
     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!  I see the crowds are getting restless, I must 
leave now-- Snide Clemens

To all those lookin' for some easy pickins:  I, Elfwine, manager of The Shallowship,
the most feared team in all of Jhelum, invite all who seek wide open spaces for pubs
and other such establishments of limited debauchery, to visit this deserted city and
help me clear up some of the dust.  I'm just about ready to have my guys face off
against each other to get some new action.  Guess I'd better join a tournament or
something...hmmmm, there's a thought.
