                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
ROCANIS brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Of course, we're all terribly 
impressed to see TRITUS win a fight and gain 22 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, TRITUS 
beat MALUS S'PROUT and MALUS S'PROUT lost 20 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And 
if variety is the spice of life, ROCANIS may be getting bland, as CENTURION stays top 
dog in the city.  Mylar's, humph!  I've tasted better ale at mortuaries.  Where do 
they get this stuff?  From ROCANIS' trash dumps?   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.   
     Ah, now we come to my favorite part, where we see all the guys who are dead and 
gone, and get to see if their team cared.  Let's see, 6-3-1.  Pretty good record for 
a living warrior.  A sad one though, for a dead one.  Such is the case for SIR MAC of 
KNIGHTS OF ROCANIS.  Tsk.  We're all going to die in the end, so why worry if the 
fate catches up with you sooner that later?   
     What does the ROCANIS arena have in common with the inns?  It's just as 
comfortable to sleep in either place.  Ha ha ha ha!  Just wait 'till next time I show 
up here, I won't be so nice!  So nyaaah!  I see the crowds are getting restless, I 
must leave now-- Snide Clemens

Any and all who live in the 805 area, I would like for you to call me so we can get
together for BBQ's, softball games, and so on.  It has been a while since the last
get together (several years).  It was a blast and I am sure the next one will be
also.  We just have to do it.  All alliances are welcome.  Just because my warriors
leave your warrior beaten and bloody in defeat does not mean we can't have a beer or
five together.  I'll even buy the first round.  So call 805-588-3419 and ask for Dave
a.k.a. Misfit, former member of the Green and Purple Polka Dot Alliance (GAPPDA).
