                                      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.  Later days, THE MYRMIDONS, since 
LIFE IMPACTS took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  Gee, I'm 
impressed, a 4-1-0 is nice, but don't get cocky, MIDDLE WAY 6, the Fates teach 
humility, and the Fates are proud.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed to see 
THOR win a fight and gain 18 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, THOR beat SHOBART TEEGUE 
and SHOBART TEEGUE lost 13 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And if variety is the 
spice of life, SNOWBOUND may be getting bland, as 4-H stays top dog in the city.  The 
Victory Tavern, humph!  I've tasted better ale at mortuaries.  Where do they get this 
stuff?  From SNOWBOUND's trash dumps?   
     My mother always told me, 'If you don't have anything nice to say, start 
talking.' I loved that woman.  DANGER DANGER, I suppose you'll be glad to know you 
were this turn's most avoided team.  Care to know who is the most afraid of you?  And 
it looks like LIFE IMPACTS avoided them the most this turn.  What a pack of would be 
losers, if you ask me.  Hmph.  SMOKEY BEAR 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.  A big yahoo goes out to SYNERGY this turn, 
for revenging PUBLIC ENEMY's bloodfeud against THE MYRMIDONS' warrior VERRA.  Heh, 
heh, heh.  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.  Just wait 'till next time I show up 
here, I won't be so nice!  So nyaaah!  Glad to see the back of this place-- Snide

Red Alert -- Please accept my apology for a final howl. -- Bulldog

Embezzling Scribe -- I just couldn't let you get away with that. -- Circle K

Smokey Bear -- I was too busy calculating and missed the smoke signals.  Salute. --
Math

Ladiro Maels -- I like winning, but I sure am getting tired. -- 4-H

Threshpack -- It was my lucky day. -- Purple Ace

Y'all say howdy ta muh new 'un done be named Quality.  Yup. -- Snuffy, Life Impacts

Jenna -- Trust me, with experience you'll get better.  I should know, look at my
record.  *grins*. -- Thor

Will Robinson -- A marathon effort, and you taught well.  Thank you. -- Thor

Ghost of Grief -- Sorry for killing you, that wasn't part of the plan.  Looks like
I'm about to be very popular with your team mates... -- Verra

Jenna -- What happened?  I thought you had me to start with, especially when I could
barely respond through your flurry of attacks.... -- Beleg

Synergy -- That did not go to plan, well, not to my plan anyway, yours seemed to work
pretty well. -- Rolan

Pec Killer and Public Enemy -- Sorry about the loss of Grief, please note that it
wasn't a revenge killing, nor was it in expectation of another loss to Synergy (which
happened, unfortunately). -- Sigurd and The Myrmidons

Math -- And when to divide and conquer, no doubt. -- Moldar Nay

Sigurd and the Myrmidons except Smaug -- Thanks, but it does happen.  I've been
playing this game too long to believe that anybody is invincible, and Elena was no
goddessling:  9-9-9-15-15-16-11.  The combination of single-digit size with single-
digit con is always more or less vulnerable. -- Jorja
P.S.  We generally don't bloodfeud, except by accident.

Thor -- Your concern is appreciated, but I don't think Jorja's sent more than a dozen
gladiators to the Dark Arena in twenty years of play.  If that. -- Jenna Kuul

Only ONE tourney participant, and that a Lord Protector?  Oh, well, we salute him
anyway. -- Jorja and the Middle Way

4-H -- Why are you still here?  Oh, the style thing.  Bummer.  We need to back the
Commission into a corner and get a better graduation rate for your style.  This is
rank prejudice. -- Ladiro Maels

Taco Bell -- One of my favorites, right up there with fried chicken.  Tacos,
burritos, quesadillas! -- Shobart Teegue

High Voltage -- I bet that shocked you.  I can be a real live wire when I get going.
-- Moldar Nay

Beleg Bloodaxe -- But my record remains unbroken.  That's good for something.  I
don't know WHAT, but surely for something. -- Jenna Kuul
