                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, FRATSFA?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Later days, FLOWER GIRLS, since DRAGONS 
GUARD II took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  Now let's all 
watch BASH BROS ROAD SIGN's heads swell from their 3-0-0 this turn.  Haa ha ha ha!  
Big shots, big talk, big deal.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed to see LEIA 
win a fight and gain 23 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, UNREADABLE beat SUN QIAN and SUN 
QIAN lost 5 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  PETULANT PANSY challenged FRATSFA's 
Duelmaster for a shot at the throne.  And if variety is the spice of life, FRATSFA 
may be getting bland, as CONFLICT 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.  
FRATSFA, I am losing what little hope I had in you.  DRAGONS GUARD II 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 FLOWER GIRLS.  Ha ha 
ha ha!  SALINA REES was challenged more times this turn than the Duelmaster.  Now was 
the DM insulted or feared?  Heh, heh.  I guess I can give a little credit to VELVET 
ROSE of JADE WARRIORS for challenging up by 24 to HU YAN ZHUO.  VELVET ROSE lost to 
get 65 points of recognition.   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  And what a stunning loss we have here, boys and 
girls, SEI BHAT PO of WAH CHING has added the final loss to hers 8-6-0.  Tee hee!  
Honor is like a chainmail shirt, it only shines through use.  Certain nameless 
cowards will doubtless rebuke me on this one.   
     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
