                                      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.  Of course, we're all terribly 
impressed to see VISIONARY win a fight and gain 19 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, 
VISIONARY beat MUSKRAT'S BLUFF and MUSKRAT'S BLUFF lost 14 points.  You're breakin' 
my heart.  And if variety is the spice of life, RODEKI may be getting bland, as 
SEAFOOD RISOTTO 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!   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.  
FLAGG'S FIVE, 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 VENETIAN CINQUE.  Ha ha ha 
ha!  Ooh, I'm frightfully impressed, ARMORED ECHO was this turn's most challenged 
warrior.  Watch that ego swell, sports fans.  I guess I can give a little credit to 
TALIB KWELI of INTELLECTS OF HIPHOP for challenging up by 23 to ARMORED ECHO.  TALIB 
KWELI lost to get 88 points of recognition.   
     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.  Now hey, I like to see a death as much as 
the next guy, but hey ANDROID DUNGEON 004, whyja send SHAMBLING MOUND to the Dark 
Arena, look at its record, huh?  And what a stunning loss we have here, boys and 
girls, IZZY of SHREDDERS has added the final loss to his 6-4-1.  Tee hee!  A big 
yahoo goes out to HIPPO HUNTRESS this turn, for revenging FLAGG'S FIVE's bloodfeud 
against SHREDDERS' warrior IZZY.  Heh, heh, heh.  Honor is like a chainmail shirt, it 
only shines through use.  Certain nameless cowards will doubtless rebuke me on this 
one.   
     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.  Well, I've had enough of this 
drivel, and I'm sure you have too.  Off like a dirty shirt of padded leather.  Glad 
to see the back of this place-- Snide Clemens

MNF -- It has been determined that Swirling Mass and Terad Vaughn teach you too many
skills.  They will be going where they can no longer teach you a single skill. --
Flagg

*In unison*  What the?! -- Swirling Mass and Terad Vaughn

Jurgenhalen -- Perhaps we could lure this Hungry Hungry Hippo out into the open with
a delicious cheese sandwich?  Like a Nesingwary Safari hunter, I've been watching
from afar.  And, oh yes, that Hippo is in my sights.  I. Am. On. The. Hunt. -- Hippo
Huntress

Karligrena -- I'm shocked!  Flabergasted!  A "big boned" gal like me has little
choice in the matter.  It's genetics, you know?  Loose fitting armor and vertical
stripes does help some, though.  Not so much on the sands, but it is fashion we're
talking about.  You skinny little things with your skimpy armor just gives us
"normal" Orcs a bad image. -- Rima Adler

Talib Kewli -- That went a little more according to plan. -- Gaven Adler

Izzy -- That didn't quite go according to plan. -- Hippo Huntress

C-Pappy -- So, if you're an old man with a sleeping disorder, what are you doing in
the arena? -- Elifas Kent
P.S.  Your alleged sleeping disorder didn't seem to affect your fighting ability, so
I think it's all a crock.  Or at least irrelevant.

Rima Adler -- Would Sherlock have approved of that behavior on your part? --
Karligrena

Slash -- Not MY socks, you won't! -- Igrina Sockinette

Pasdanous -- I suspect you of being a hippo in disguise. -- Isengalen

The Edge -- For some reason, you just pushed me right OVER the edge. -- Jurgenhalen
