                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, VEASTIAN?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Now keep the taverns open late tonight, 
for there are sorrows to drown for ORL 2013K, whose 0-1-0 this turn dropped them by 5 
into 10th.  Ha!  AMERKIN INJUNS turned their 2-0-0 turn into a 4th place rank in the 
listings this turn.  Any better than this, and you get put on hit lists.  Of course, 
we're all terribly impressed to see WINNING ISNT EVRTHNG win a fight and gain 100 
points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, WINNING ISNT EVRTHNG beat XERYUS and XERYUS lost 3 
points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And if variety is the spice of life, VEASTIAN may 
be getting bland, as XOWIE stays top dog in the city.  The Warty Toad, humph!  I've 
tasted better ale at mortuaries.  Where do they get this stuff?  From VEASTIAN's 
trash dumps?   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.   
     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.  It's about time BLACK ZANJO got beat for 
picking on warriors like XOWIE.  Bravo, TOLBIN'S X-MEN.  See you at The Warty Toad.  
Titanium shields and bamboo daggers, guess what brave team is developing these kinds 
of weapons?   
     What does the VEASTIAN arena have in common with the inns?  It's just as 
comfortable to sleep in either place.  Ha ha ha ha!  Phlllt!  Just had to do that 
before I leave the fine city of VEASTIAN.  I feel much better now.  I see the crowds 
are getting restless, I must leave now-- Snide Clemens
