                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, VEASTIAN?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Later days, TOLBIN'S X-MEN, since THE 
FAMILY took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  BATTLE FROGS 12-15 
turned their 2-1-0 turn into a 3rd 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 LORD TOADMYRE win a fight and gain 10 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, VENOMOUS 
CONCUBINE beat ZILLA KHIRNAJ and ZILLA KHIRNAJ lost 9 points.  You're breakin' my 
heart.  Due to absence, and inability to defend the throne, XOWIE has lost the Title 
of Duelmaster.  Start setting that alarm earlier!  And it's out with the old, in with 
the new, as BLACK ZANJO takes the Title and last week's bar tab from the old 
Duelmaster.  Heh, heh.  Kickbacks and bribes, kickbacks and bribes, how else do you 
think some of these guys win their fights?  Skill?  Ha!   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.  ZILLA 
KHIRNAJ 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 VEASTIAN's 
morgue.  More variety.  Honor is like a chainmail shirt, it only shines through use.  
Certain nameless cowards will doubtless rebuke me on this one.   
     There's got to be a better place in VEASTIAN to get a drink than The Swinging 
Aardvark!  Any suggestions?  Well, I've had enough of this drivel, and I'm sure you 
have too.  Off like a dirty shirt of padded leather.  I see the crowds are getting 
restless, I must leave now-- Snide Clemens

Two-three.  I suppose that's the best we can hope for with snow on the ground.
Somehow, snow messes up everything.  Darned if I know why, but there it is.  And the
moon is waning, which never helps. -- Lolita Maria
