                                      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, PUBLIC ENEMY, since 
MESOPOTAMIA took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  If this keeps 
up, KILL OR BE KILT, you'll have to shine swords instead of use them.  A drop of 4 in 
the rankings?  OPEN SESAME turned their 4-1-0 turn into a 5th place rank in the 
listings this turn.  Any better than this, and you get put on hit lists.  Of course, 
we're all terribly impressed to see ZURISDAY win a fight and gain 24 points, 
terribly.  Tsk, tsk, ZURISDAY beat REMARKABLE WORD and REMARKABLE WORD lost 21 
points.  You're breakin' my heart.  BERT & ERNIE challenged SNOWBOUND's Duelmaster 
for a shot at the throne.  And it's out with the old, in with the new, as BERT & 
ERNIE 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, SNOWBOUND?   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.  SCISSOR 
ME TIMBER, 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 KILL OR BE KILT 
avoided them the most this turn.  What a pack of would be losers, if you ask me.  
Hmph.  GARUTH HOLM was challenged more times this turn than the Duelmaster.  Now was 
the DM insulted or feared?  Heh, heh.   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  Honor is like a chainmail shirt, it only shines 
through use.  Certain nameless cowards will doubtless rebuke me on this one.   
     What does the SNOWBOUND arena have in common with the inns?  It's just as 
comfortable to sleep in either place.  Ha ha ha ha!  Phlllt!  Just had to do that 
before I leave the fine city of SNOWBOUND.  I feel much better now.  Glad to see the 
back of this place-- Snide Clemens

Two-three, and no standbys for us.  This is a bad sign.  Well, for some people, a
good sign because there are real opponents out there.  But we don't WANT real
opponents.  Real opponents want to WIN. -- Jenna Kuul

Grandma Miller -- You didn't bring any cookies! -- Garuth Holm

Patty Murphy -- Cheese louise, Patty me bhoy!  It wasn't ME asking about what's under
your kilt. -- Newlin Ohm

Rob Roy -- I'm not Roy, you know?  No point robbing me, I haven't got a single
corroded copper. -- Oliver Queen

Connor McLeod -- Nah, you're too short for me.  Train your SZ and we can try it
again. -- Ursulina Trell
P.S.  You any kin to "Scott McLeod, SPACE ANGEL!!!"?  He was a bit of, well, of an
ass, pompous in his heroism, or so it seemed to me at the time, but good for the
occasional promenade down the Lunar Concourse and an expensive dinner.

Hairy Monster -- Euwh!  How about a coupon for free electrolysis treatments? -- Jenna
