                                      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.  Of course, we're all terribly 
impressed to see BENEZIA win a fight and gain 38 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, 
GLITRINA beat BELLDANDY and BELLDANDY lost 19 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  
Looks like STORMCROWE has some guts at least, LAPUR BISQUE the Duelmaster was this 
turn's most-challenged warrior.  And if variety is the spice of life, STORMCROWE may 
be getting bland, as LAPUR BISQUE 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.   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for STORMCROWE's 
morgue.  More variety.  Ya gotta go sometime, and CAER SALAD's time was this time.  
Hmmm, not a bad fighter, had he lived... (what?  me pity?).  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?  Phlllt!  Just had to do that before I leave the fine 
city of STORMCROWE.  I feel much better now.  I see the crowds are getting restless, 
I must leave now-- Snide Clemens
