                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
STORMCROWE brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Later days, DARQUE FORCES, since 
SRETSAMLEUD II took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  SRETSAMLEUD 
II turned their 2-0-0 turn into a 2nd 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 DICE win a fight and gain 26 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, SKUM III 
beat GELIDNIA HALE and GELIDNIA HALE lost 13 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And 
if variety is the spice of life, STORMCROWE may be getting bland, as HALF stays top 
dog in the city.  The Shadow's Fountain, humph!  I've tasted better ale at 
mortuaries.  Where do they get this stuff?  From STORMCROWE's trash dumps?   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.   
     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.  We're all going to die in the end, so why 
worry if the fate catches up with you sooner that later?   
     What does the STORMCROWE arena have in common with the inns?  It's just as 
comfortable to sleep in either place.  Ha ha ha ha!  Well, I've had enough of this 
drivel, and I'm sure you have too.  Off like a dirty shirt of padded leather.  Paste 
this one in your scrapbooks, you'll need the kindling come this winter-- Snide
