                                      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, ISLANDERS, since HANGOVERS 
took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  HANGOVERS turned their 
4-0-1 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 FLAMING 
MOE win a fight and gain 22 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, FLAMING MOE beat THOSE I 
HURT and THOSE I HURT lost 20 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  Looks like ILLIS 
has some guts at least, HEATH BAR the Duelmaster was this turn's most-challenged 
warrior.  NAZARETH challenged ILLIS' Duelmaster for a shot at the throne.  And if 
variety is the spice of life, ILLIS may be getting bland, as HEATH BAR stays top dog 
in the city.  The Dripping Blade, humph!  I've tasted better ale at mortuaries.  
Where do they get this stuff?  From ILLIS' trash dumps?   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.  
ILLIS, I am losing what little hope I had in you.  SHEWISH MUNCHIES the most avoided 
team?  What insult will suffice, I cannot say.  And it looks like CHAPEL ROCK avoided 
them the most this turn.  What a pack of would be losers, if you ask me.  Hmph.   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for ILLIS' 
morgue.  More variety.  Whoa!  I'll even buy I MOTHER EARTH a drink tonight!  Anyone 
who can come back from the Dark Arena, I want to be on hers good side!  Bye bye, 
warrior, bye bye...  SHARK TOOTH, a glorious 4-11-0 fighter, has passed away.  Gee, 
too bad ISLANDERS.  And what a stunning loss we have here, boys and girls, DELISLE of 
ISLANDERS has added the final loss to his 5-9-1.  Tee hee!  Honor is like a chainmail 
shirt, it only shines through use.  Certain nameless cowards will doubtless rebuke me 
on this one.   
     There's got to be a better place in ILLIS to get a drink than The Dripping 
Blade!  Any suggestions?  Phlllt!  Just had to do that before I leave the fine city 
of ILLIS.  I feel much better now.  Glad to see the back of this place-- Snide 
Clemens

Our congratulations to I Mother Earth.  You go, Mama! -- Jorja and the Islanders

Four non-Dark Arena standbys on the sands, and we didn't get ONE.  I call that
prejudice! -- Fishhook

One-four and a death.  Not that we'll miss that Joe character, we didn't care for the
little we saw. -- Fishhook
