                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, STORMCROWE?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed 
to see KEJSAREN win a fight and gain 17 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, KEJSAREN beat 
CAER SALAD and CAER SALAD lost 13 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  MR BEEFY 
challenged STORMCROWE's Duelmaster for a shot at the throne.  And if variety is the 
spice of life, STORMCROWE may be getting bland, as CELESTIAL ROSE stays top dog in 
the city.  I'm not in a very good mood today, but why am I telling you this?  You 
want to know what's new, don't you, STORMCROWE?   
     My mother always told me, 'If you don't have anything nice to say, start 
talking.' I loved that woman.  STORMCROWE, I am losing what little hope I had in you. 
DARQUE FORCES the most avoided team?  What insult will suffice, I cannot say.  And 
who led the way in this mass act of cowardice?  Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It 
was STREET WALKERS.  Ha ha ha ha!  ANDROMEDA was challenged more times this turn than 
the Duelmaster.  Now was the DM insulted or feared?  Heh, heh.  Now here's guts and 
stupidity all rolled into one, SVAMPBOB challenged up 42 to take on ANDROMEDA of 
DARQUE FORCES.  But here's a pretty tale--SVAMPBOB did lose the fight, but gained 2 
worth of recognition.  Some long shots can pay off, I guess.   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for STORMCROWE's 
morgue.  More variety.  Gee, MIKES HEROES, ain't it past due for sending PADDYPO Dark 
Arena?  What took ol' '9-6-0' so long?  Hope?  Ha ha aha ha!  We're all going to die 
in the end, so why worry if the fate catches up with you sooner that later?   
     There's got to be a better place in STORMCROWE to get a drink than The Shadow's 
Fountain!  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

Celestial Rose -- Was that really necessary?  You obviously could have beaten me
easily but that just wasn't good enough now was it? -- A very dead and slightly
miffed Mini Driver

Master Darque -- Ignore Mini's little rant, that's just the way the war flail bounces
sometimes.  If you fight Ms. Rose in the arena on her last fight, expect a token
bloodfued. -- Roadkill
P.S.  Mini's replacement isn't too shabby, not too shabby at all

Aisha Clanclan -- Okay, okay, I get the point...literally.  I hoped you remembered to
take the target off my back when you were done! -- Mrs Beefy

Sapphira -- Shoo...go away.  We con't keep meeting like this, the wife is getting a
little upset. -- Mr Beefy

Pingu -- Please tell me that your choice of weapons was a mistake!  I didn't think
anyone intentionally uses that thing anymore. -- Slambo

Jorja -- Thanks!  It's nice to be back.  Unfortunately, that means you have to put up
with my wierd sense of humor and mindless tribble, but hey, it's better than complete
silence. -- Roadkill (well, I hope it's better than complete silence)

Our congratulations to Celestial Rose. -- Jorja and the Northern Lights

Raynor -- Just shows how much the stewards know, when they say you can't use that
thing.  Seems to ME you did just FINE with it. -- Glitrina

Fiametta -- Well, BAH.  Just totally BAH.  I hope you get heat stroke. -- The Winter
Queen

Starwind -- We're seeing a lot of your team, aren't we?  I could stand to see less, I
think. -- Seal Dancer

Roselyn -- I think I agree with the Winter Queen.  You need a quick case of heat
stroke. -- Aurora Marie the Disgruntled

Paddypo -- Listen, I got the only win on the team, so I *love* you.  Let me buy you a
drink.  Let me buy you dinner! -- White Bear
