                                      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, LIFE IMPACTS, since 
PUBLIC ENEMY took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  And if variety 
is the spice of life, SNOWBOUND may be getting bland, as NEFARA 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.  
SNOWBOUND, I am losing what little hope I had in you.  PUBLIC ENEMY 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 MESOPOTAMIA.  Ha ha ha ha!  
Ooh, I'm frightfully impressed, OLIVER QUEEN was this turn's most challenged warrior. 
Watch that ego swell, sports fans.  And we have WILLIAM WALLACE in a challenge, going 
down 14 points for the fight.  Guess what?  I thought WILLIAM WALLACE showed great 
skill and promise when he was bested by NEWLIN OHM.  All right, so I slept through 
it!  Big deal!   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  Three down, and one turn to go for LIFE IMPACTS to 
call in the bloodfeud against ZURISDAY, else CIRCLE K is but small history.  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!  Paste this one in your scrapbooks, you'll need 
the kindling come this winter-- Snide Clemens

The Life Impacts are traveling on a mission and will be unable to provide timely
communications and input.  But we haven't forgotten all our friends and foes in
Snowbound. -- The Life Impacts Publicist

Wait a minute!  I want to say something.  Tiamat, it was my pleasure to wail and
whack and add to your demise.  Har har. -- Sax0phone (jazzin' it up)

Nefara -- All you had to do was let me win and I would have graduated.  Now I'm stuck
here for a few more turns. -- Kingu

Jenna Kuul -- Scrape, scrape, just a little here and there.  I'll take a little bone
and be out of your hair. -- The Bonescraper

NK Power -- Crush.  Kill.  Destroy.  Bits of bone and flayed flesh pepper the air in
a hailstorm of carnage.  Another glorious day. -- Crushing Belial

Saxophone -- I shouldn't be that tired after only a minute!  Too many long nights
carousing at the Broken Sun Tavern I guess.  Half priced spiced grog cannot be passed
up, though! -- Tiamat's Demise

Robert The Bruce -- As you can see I have a problem.  I like to punch things with my
bare hands until I hurt myself.  I just keep swinging away until my hands are bloody
stumps.  Thank Kjarran for the diligent healers in this city. -- Cuneiform

Grandma Miller -- Well, of course!  Once I knew you were DORIS's grandmother, I just
KNEW the cookies would be great.  Doris's Grandmother's Oatmeal Cookies are a STAPLE
around here. -- Newlin Ohm

We salute the tourney participants, with a special nod to Clever, tourney victor. --
Jorja and those who walk the Middle Way

One-four, and it's an IMPROVEMENT?  How embarrassing. -- Jenna Kuul, for those who
walk the Middle Way

Bonescraper -- You golems just don't know when to quit, do you?  Those bones were
scraped ENOUGH in the first two seconds. -- Jenna Kuul

Pat Murphy -- I didn't notice you down there at first.  Are you a leprechaun? --
Newlin Ohm, wondering if there might be a pot of gold around somewhere

Rob Roy -- Well, listen, I'm not Roy, and there isn't the least use in robbing me.  I
haven't GOT anything. -- Oliver Queen

Zurisday -- Too many days in the work week already. -- Garuth Holm

Connor McLeod -- I guess if you're going to wear that in public, it helps to be
shorter than everybody else. -- Ursulina Trell
