                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, ROCANIS?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed 
to see BUGS win a fight and gain 18 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, NIGHT CRAWLER beat 
DROXINE and DROXINE lost 13 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And if variety is the 
spice of life, ROCANIS may be getting bland, as MEECHAM 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.  
ROCANIS, I am losing what little hope I had in you.  MEN OF STEEL 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 TREXTRAS.  Ha ha ha ha!  FERRIA 
HOUGH was challenged more times this turn than the Duelmaster.  Now was the DM 
insulted or feared?  Heh, heh.  And we have SFC 1 in a challenge, going down 12 
points for the fight.  Guess what?  I thought SFC 1 showed great skill and promise 
when he beat FERRIA HOUGH.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     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.  A big yahoo goes out to MEECHAM this turn, 
for revenging MEN OF STEEL's bloodfeud against SERPENTS' HOLD's warrior BACKLASH.  
Heh, heh, heh.  We're all going to die in the end, so why worry if the fate catches 
up with you sooner that later?   
     There's got to be a better place in ROCANIS to get a drink than The Grub & Rub 
Bar and Bistro!  Any suggestions?  Phlllt!  Just had to do that before I leave the 
fine city of ROCANIS.  I feel much better now.  Paste this one in your scrapbooks, 
you'll need the kindling come this winter-- Snide Clemens

Okay, this time my cunning and luck were on vacation, and I lost to a snake.  A golem
snake, at that!  There are too many golems around; it messes up the economy.  At
least, that's what I heard, from a guy who is supposed to understand that stuff.
Ferria agrees with me about "too many golems," but I'm not sure she counts, I mean,
she's an elf.  They have all kinds of strange biases.

*I* think there's too many sergeants, too.  Always yelling at people and making them
do pushups!  Gaston's happy about 'em, though, since he beat one.  And Houston...
well, of COURSE he's happy, HE drew a standby and won, his FIRST win, this time.  Oh,
well, we wouldn't want him getting discouraged and DYING on us. -- Newton Pyne
