Ouch!  It's getting closer each turn!  This Marmaduke is really blazing!  OAB is
coming from behind!  Khisanth is ferocious.  The beautiful flowers are suffering with
all these fiery guys around.

A small issue though:  The Order must declare a Scout to score his points!

                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, FRATSFA?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  SEA DOGS turned their 4-1-1 turn into a 
3rd 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 CONFLICT win a fight and 
gain 22 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, DESPAIR beat GLOATING GARDENIA and GLOATING 
GARDENIA lost 17 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And it's out with the old, in 
with the new, as ZOUM LA BOUSE takes the Title and last week's bar tab from the old 
Duelmaster.  Heh, heh.  Kickbacks and bribes, kickbacks and bribes, how else do you 
think some of these guys win their fights?  Skill?  Ha!   
     My mother always told me, 'If you don't have anything nice to say, start 
talking.' I loved that woman.  What's the big D?  PYROMANIA was the most avoided 
team?  Bunch of lily livered... grumble... mumble... curse...  And who led the way in 
this mass act of cowardice?  Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It was DRAGONS GUARD II. 
Ha ha ha ha!  Ooh, I'm frightfully impressed, ONYX was this turn's most challenged 
warrior.  Watch that ego swell, sports fans.   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for FRATSFA's 
morgue.  More variety.  Honor is like a chainmail shirt, it only shines through use.  
Certain nameless cowards will doubtless rebuke me on this one.   
     What does the FRATSFA arena have in common with the inns?  It's just as 
comfortable to sleep in either place.  Ha ha ha ha!  Well, I've had enough of this 
drivel, and I'm sure you have too.  Off like a dirty shirt of padded leather.  Paste 
this one in your scrapbooks, you'll need the kindling come this winter-- Snide 
Clemens
