                                      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 HELENA JONES win a fight and gain 13 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, 
NICHOLAS beat PRIVATE 4 and PRIVATE 4 lost 7 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  
SERGEANT 1 challenged ROCANIS' Duelmaster for a shot at the throne.  And if variety 
is the spice of life, ROCANIS may be getting bland, as NIGHT CRAWLER stays top dog in 
the city.  The Wanton Troll, 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.  
ROCANIS, I am losing what little hope I had in you.  MEDAL OF HONOR A11 the most 
avoided team?  What insult will suffice, I cannot say.  And it looks like THEM 
avoided them the most this turn.  What a pack of would be losers, if you ask me.  
Hmph.  Ooh, I'm frightfully impressed, DENNA FEYL was this turn's most challenged 
warrior.  Watch that ego swell, sports fans.  DENNA FEYL was challenged by one of 
MEDAL OF HONOR A11's warriors this turn, with FRANKLIN E. SIGLER having a lead of 25 
points going into the fight.  And golly gee, FRANKLIN E. SIGLER bested DENNA FEYL.  
Aren't we all surprised and impressed?   
     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.  Titanium shields and bamboo daggers, guess 
what brave team is developing these kinds of weapons?   
     There's got to be a better place in ROCANIS to get a drink than The Wanton 
Troll!  Any suggestions?  Well, I've had enough of this drivel, and I'm sure you have 
too.  Off like a dirty shirt of padded leather.  Glad to see the back of this place-- 
Snide Clemens

One-four again, and Gaston left on a loss.  So what does THAT say about his value to
us?  Denna did manage to grab off the Popularity Leader spot, but that isn't really a
big deal, is it?  I mean, if you like people crowding up to you looking for
autographs or a lock of your hair, okay.  But I'd take that kind of stuff with a lot
of reserve.  Sounds like the seeds of black magic to ME.  And *I* got the only win.
I am so puffed up with that, even though it was over a standby!  I know it won't
last, but for NOW, the win is MINE. -- Newton Pine
