                                      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 
SHEWISH BUFFET took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  Of course, 
we're all terribly impressed to see CAER SALAD win a fight and gain 18 points, 
terribly.  Tsk, tsk, ANGEL CAKE beat WAR MAIDEN and WAR MAIDEN lost 7 points.  You're 
breakin' my heart.  THE STATISTICIAN challenged AURORA MARIE for STORMCROWE's Title 
this turn, and guess what happened?  And it's out with the old, in with the new, as 
AURORA MARIE takes the Title and last week's bar tab from the old Duelmaster.  Heh, 
heh.  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?   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.  What's 
the big D?  DARQUE FORCES 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 AVID FANS.  Ha ha ha ha!  AURORA MARIE was 
challenged more times this turn than the Duelmaster.  Now was the DM insulted or 
feared?  Heh, heh.   
     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.  Consider RIKKU gone, and DARQUE FORCES 
unfeeling, letting the bloodfeud for hers death go unrevenged.  We're all going to 
die in the end, so why worry if the fate catches up with you sooner that later?   
     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.  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
