                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, ILLIS?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Later days, VIRUS, since CHAPEL ROCK 
took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  CHAPEL ROCK turned their 
5-0-0 turn into a 1st 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 WASHOUT 
win a fight and gain 25 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, MARGARITA beat SYLVESTER and 
SYLVESTER lost 14 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  Due to absence, and inability 
to defend the throne, RED RED WINE has lost the Title of Duelmaster.  Start setting 
that alarm earlier!  And it's out with the old, in with the new, as 
IMMACULATECOLLECTION takes the Title and last week's bar tab from the old Duelmaster. 
Heh, heh.  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?  VIRUS was the most avoided team?  Bunch of lily livered... grumble... 
mumble... curse...  And it looks like CHAPEL ROCK avoided them the most this turn.  
What a pack of would be losers, if you ask me.  Hmph.  Ooh, I'm frightfully 
impressed, DARNED SOCK was this turn's most challenged warrior.  Watch that ego 
swell, sports fans.   
     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.  Now hey, I like to see a death as much as 
the next guy, but hey IMPROVED ILLUSION, whyja send SIMON MAGUS to the Dark Arena, 
look at his record, huh?  And now a passing thought on a warrior dying young (H.I.V. 
of VIRUS):  You had your chance and now you're dead.  Oh well...  Titanium shields 
and bamboo daggers, guess what brave team is developing these kinds of weapons?   
     What does the ILLIS 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.  I see 
the crowds are getting restless, I must leave now-- Snide Clemens

Welcome back to Illis, Crip!  Are all three teams yours or just two of them?  I will
say that your style distribution up here on top does not encourage me.  But what is
another year or two for I'm Powerless, right? -- Assur

Red Red Wine -- Looks like you need to join both Alcoholics Anon and Bashaholics
Anon! -- I'm a Basher

Sir Blackguard -- It is so wrong, comparing those two fights and those two weapons...
I know part of it is luck, but still! -- Assurnasirbanipal

Assur sings, "I've got the slow training blues."

Cancer -- Not my sign. -- Coco Nuttal

HIV -- I prefer to avoid you, thanks just the same. -- Dillis Rhin

Swine Flu -- So, you're claiming to be a swine?  Well, I suppose you should know. --
Chagua Korbin

Sars -- Well, of course.  That's what I pay McAfee for, after all. -- Belitris

Church of Rising Sun -- Better than Setting Sun, I suppose.  A more positive subtext
and all. -- Sylvester

Assur -- Well, of course not!  The AAA card is one of the best insurance investments
I've ever made. -- Sylvester

Note -- We are still looking for additional teams in Arvat, DM 32.  I still have a
number of good team rollups available FREE for whoever wants one.
     Contact the Devil Advocates ASAP to join the fun!  You can either reach me by
diplo or on the RSI site.
     Also, whoever sent me the diplo with no name on it requesting a rollup /
information on how to get into Arvat, I'm embarassed to admit that the diplo slipped
out of my folder and was lost.  Please just send me another one with your mailing
address and I'll get a rollup to you ASAP.  Sorry about that!
