                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
SNOWBOUND brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Of course, we're all terribly 
impressed to see DRAGOUL win a fight and gain 12 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, MAILEA 
beat GERRICK GRIMM and GERRICK GRIMM lost 9 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And 
if variety is the spice of life, SNOWBOUND may be getting bland, as YAIWE stays top 
dog in the city.  Kickbacks and bribes, kickbacks and bribes, how else do you think 
some of these guys win their fights?  Skill?  Ha!   
     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?   
     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 SNOWBOUND.  I feel much better now.  Paste this one in your 
scrapbooks, you'll need the kindling come this winter-- Snide Clemens
