                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, TRICORUS?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed 
to see NYARLATHOTEP win a fight and gain 9 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, AMBITIOUS 
GUARD beat MAHAGHAL and MAHAGHAL lost 11 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And if 
variety is the spice of life, TRICORUS may be getting bland, as CARGO 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!   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.  DARK 
HORSEMEN, 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 RAISING R'LYEH avoided 
them the most this turn.  What a pack of would be losers, if you ask me.  Hmph.   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for TRICORUS' 
morgue.  More variety.  Honor is like a chainmail shirt, it only shines through use.  
Certain nameless cowards will doubtless rebuke me on this one.   
     There's got to be a better place in TRICORUS to get a drink than The Blue 
Dolphin Inn!  Any suggestions?  Phlllt!  Just had to do that before I leave the fine 
city of TRICORUS.  I feel much better now.  Glad to see the back of this place-- 
Snide Clemens

Dangerous Criminal?  You're joking. -- Shalaitha

And a Persistent Beggar who should have known when to quit makes us five and oh
against the standbys. -- Saarveghal

Nyarlathotep -- It's in our contracts:  We have to write personals. -- Teresai
