                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
RODEKI brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Later days, INTELLECTS OF HIPHOP, 
since COLOR ME SUAVE took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  
SHREDDERS turned their 3-2-1 turn into a 2nd place rank in the listings this turn.  
Any better than this, and you get put on hit lists.  Gee, I'm impressed, a 5-0-0 is 
nice, but don't get cocky, COLOR ME SUAVE, the Fates teach humility, and the Fates 
are proud.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed to see IGRINA SOCKINETTE win a 
fight and gain 15 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, RIMA ADLER beat KARLIGRENA and 
KARLIGRENA lost 9 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  Looks like RODEKI has some guts 
at least, ARMORED ECHO the Duelmaster was this turn's most-challenged warrior.  Going 
for broke or broken, our Duelmaster SEAFOOD RISOTTO Bloodfeuded this turn.  And if 
variety is the spice of life, RODEKI may be getting bland, as ARMORED ECHO 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, RODEKI?   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.  
What's the big D?  BEASTIAL LEGION was the most avoided team?  Bunch of lily 
livered... grumble... mumble... curse...  And who led the way in this mass act of 
cowardice?  Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It was FLAGG'S FIVE.  Ha ha ha ha!   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for RODEKI's 
morgue.  More variety.  Let's see, 6-4-2.  Pretty good record for a living warrior.  
A sad one though, for a dead one.  Such is the case for DETRA VAUGHN of FLAGG'S FIVE. 
Tsk.  Not that I'll be buying the drinks, but I'll be glad to see ARMORED ECHO and 
COLOR ME SUAVE at The Dripping Blade tonight celebrating their bloodfeud victory over 
SEAFOOD RISOTTO.  Titanium shields and bamboo daggers, guess what brave team is 
developing these kinds of weapons?   
     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!  Glad to see the back of this place-- Snide

MNF -- We're going to try this again.  Hopefully, we'll have a more exciting fight.
-- Swirling Mass

Jurgenhalen -- Pretty predictable at this point in time, but we'll have to try it
again after about 100 more fights (or sooner).  Perhaps we should jaunt on down to
that tavern you mentioned last cycle.  I'd be interested in a fine Mordanti lager or
at the very least, I hear that there are some fine Andorian pale ales to be had out
there.  What do you say? My treat! -- Hippo Huntress

Talib Kweli -- That was a little more... ummm... offensive than what I thought you
would come out. -- Gaven Adler

Pasdanous -- Thanks for the win.  For a minute there I had forgotten the feeling. --
Rima Adler

Gaven Adler -- I was having an off day.  It happens. -- Isengalen

Flagg -- Works for me.  Come by our place sometime and we'll shave a glass or two of
corn squeezings, hmm? -- Harby

C-Pappy -- Isn't there a part of your name missing?  Like "C Pappy Lose" or
something? -- Isengalen

Hippo Huntress -- Ouch!  If I'd been a hippo, I would have been in serious trouble!
-- Jurgenhalen
P.S.  I've never hunted hippos.  It might be interesting to try.  Where would we find
some?  Maybe down in the swamps around Niania?

Uncle Ted -- You're no uncle of MINE.  I hope. -- Karligrena

And for a change of pace, two wins over standbys.  Works for us. -- Elifas Kent and
Igrina Sockinette
