                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, VEASTIAN?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed 
to see RIKKI win a fight and gain 21 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, HAPPY beat XANDY 
and XANDY lost 12 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  SHADOW FROGGY challenged ZILLA 
KHIRNAJ for VEASTIAN's Title this turn, and guess what happened?  And if variety is 
the spice of life, VEASTIAN may be getting bland, as SHADOW FROGGY stays top dog in 
the city.  The Swinging Aardvark, humph!  I've tasted better ale at mortuaries.  
Where do they get this stuff?  From VEASTIAN's trash dumps?   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.  What's 
the big D?  BATTLE FROGS 12-15 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 FAMOUS HURLERS.  Ha ha ha ha!  Ooh, I'm 
frightfully impressed, ZILLA KHIRNAJ was this turn's most challenged warrior.  Watch 
that ego swell, sports fans.  Now here's guts and stupidity all rolled into one, 
XOWIE challenged up 30 to take on THE BIG UNIT of FAMOUS HURLERS.  Not that I'm 
surprised or anything, but XOWIE was bested by THE BIG UNIT, leaving the latter lower 
for recognition points.   
     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.  And what a stunning loss we have here, 
boys and girls, MARTINE of THE FAMILY has added the final loss to hers 4-12-0.  Tee 
hee!  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.  Phlllt!  Just had to do that before 
I leave the fine city of VEASTIAN.  I feel much better now.  Glad to see the back of 
this place-- Snide Clemens

Famous Hurlers -- Leave poor Shadow Froggy alone for me, will ya. -- Grimm

The Family -- Shadow is looking to challenge your PR, match up, match up, match up.
-- Grimm

All -- Happy is happy to be here. -- Grimm

Shadow Froggy -- I knew I should have walked you.  Next time, I'll pitch inside.
Hopefully I don't let it get away from me.  Just hate it when that happens. -- Big
Six

Xowie -- Assur says I'm knacky, so you might just take that into consideration when
you consider why I won.  He is even considering giving me an Adepts tourney run.  He
says I should be a non-factor, but if I go immortal, that doesn't hurt. -- The Big
Unit

We congratulate the Lyrical Druggist. -- Jorja and The Family

The Big Unit -- Thank you. -- Lolita Maria

One-three and a death.  No standbys.  Definitely not amused. -- Zilla Khirnaj
