                                      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.  Now let's all watch MIDDLE WAY 20's 
heads swell from their 4-1-0 this turn.  Haa ha ha ha!  Big shots, big talk, big 
deal.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed to see ERIK win a fight and gain 16 
points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, ERIK beat FORLIS HOOLER and FORLIS HOOLER lost 15 
points.  You're breakin' my heart.  Going for broke or broken, our Duelmaster 
HAL'IGGE JOYROC challenged this turn.  And if variety is the spice of life, ROCANIS 
may be getting bland, as COBRA 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.  What's 
the big D?  THEM was the most avoided team?  Bunch of lily livered... grumble... 
mumble... curse...  And it looks like CHOIR OF ANGELS avoided them the most this 
turn.  What a pack of would be losers, if you ask me.  Hmph.  Ooh, I'm frightfully 
impressed, FORLIS HOOLER was this turn's most challenged warrior.  Watch that ego 
swell, sports fans.   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  Titanium shields and bamboo daggers, guess what brave 
team is developing these kinds of weapons?   
     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!  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
