                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, RODEKI?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Later days, HIGHER PURPOSE, since COLOR 
ME SUAVE took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  Of course, we're 
all terribly impressed to see HANDSOME IS win a fight and gain 16 points, terribly.  
Tsk, tsk, RED SKELTON beat DUCEM and DUCEM lost 13 points.  You're breakin' my heart. 
Going for broke or broken, our Duelmaster EL RIPPOFF challenged this turn.  And if 
variety is the spice of life, RODEKI may be getting bland, as STUPID SEXY FLANDERS 
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.  COLOR ME SUAVE, 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 I'M SO SEXY.  Ha ha ha ha!  SUSHEE SU was challenged more times this turn than 
the Duelmaster.  Now was the DM insulted or feared?  Heh, heh.   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  Titanium shields and bamboo daggers, guess what brave 
team is developing these kinds of weapons?   
     What does the RODEKI arena have in common with the inns?  It's just as 
comfortable to sleep in either place.  Ha ha ha ha!  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

George Stark -- Ah, Georgie boy, that was a SPLENDID fight.  Any fight which ends
with me immortal is splendid. -- El Rippoff
P.S.  Epee?  A KNITTING NEEDLE?  I don't think so.

1977 Amc Matador -- It's always bad to run out of gas, isn't it?  And with gas prices
so high...not much you can do.  I hope the skills will be a compensation. -- John
Rose

Alaric -- You're anti-mole, is that it?  Or anti-miner...no, wait!  You're anti-
LABOR!  Gods, what a horrible thought. -- The Mole

Starscream -- And very piercing it was, too. -- Handsome Is

Gunslinger -- This is El "Great Potential" Rippoff, just for you:  13-10-10-13-17-10-
11 EP low/low. -- Harby

TMM -- Whoops!  My bad.  On the bright side, the team name is one I'd expect from
TUM, not as much you....  Looks like Stupid Sexy Flanders may graduate after all!
With Limpy going after Bozo, you have no competition!  Good luck in your last few
fights! -- Assur

Limpy -- Take that LO back.  You shouldn't be using it!  Use something else,
preferably something small and dull! -- Bozo

MM -- Can't say I didn't warn you. -- R. M.

With Yankee Dan leaving, that gives our stable room to bring Red Skelton into the
house! -- Clowning Around mgmt.

12 July 2004
All Readers -- Due to the pressures resulting from preparing for and dealing with the
Face to Face, no spotlights will be written until it's over. -- the Scribe

17 July 2004
I am currently trying to put together a favorites chart for AD warriors.  I
desperately need help with this.  What I need are style, favorite rhythm (ex.:
hi/low), favorite weapons, and tactics.  What would be great is if you could send me
a copy of the invite with the warrior's name, id#, and arena blacked out.  This way,
I can verify that this is an actual warrior.  Minis will work, too!

For those interested, I have both a challenge style vs. style and a match-up style
vs. style chart.  There's about 250 fights calculated in these charts, and I'll be
happy to send a copy to anyone who asks.  You can contact me (if you're a free world
player) at: Rick Stringer, Merit/East, SCI, P.O. Box 500, Georgetown, DE 19947-0500.
If you're in prison, just send a diplo to:  Baphomet, Mgr. Knights Templar (568), DM
#47--North Fork.  (I also have a lot of other charts and info for anyone who wants
it.)  Thanks!
