                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
ILLIS brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  BASHAHOLICS ANON turned their 1-1-1 
turn into a 5th place rank in the listings this turn.  Any better than this, and you 
get put on hit lists.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed to see CHURCH OF 
RISING SUN win a fight and gain 15 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, IMMACULATECOLLECTION 
beat AXE SEXIER HAMMER and AXE SEXIER HAMMER lost 2 points.  You're breakin' my 
heart.  Going for broke or broken, our Duelmaster DUFF challenged this turn.  And if 
variety is the spice of life, ILLIS may be getting bland, as SOUL SCOURGE 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.  DAMAGE 
INC., I suppose you'll be glad to know you were this turn's most avoided team.  Care 
to know who is the most afraid of you?  And it looks like CHAPEL ROCK avoided them 
the most this turn.  What a pack of would be losers, if you ask me.  Hmph.  DUFF was 
challenged more times this turn than the Duelmaster.  Now was the DM insulted or 
feared?  Heh, heh.  I suspect either a 21 will or a 21 ego on this one, but NAZARETH 
has challenged up by 34 in an attempt against WIMPIRA.  And sure, NAZARETH lost 
alright, but gained 5 recognition for its pains.  And pains they may indeed be!   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  Bye bye, warrior, bye bye...  JAN PEARL, a glorious 
8-16-1 fighter, has passed away.  Gee, too bad ISLANDERS.  Titanium shields and 
bamboo daggers, guess what brave team is developing these kinds of weapons?   
     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!  I see the crowds are getting restless, I must 
leave now-- Snide Clemens
