                                      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.  Of course, we're all terribly 
impressed to see BEATIE win a fight and gain 28 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, IRISH 
FLAG beat HUMAN PRETZEL and HUMAN PRETZEL lost 6 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  
Looks like ILLIS has some guts at least, LONG ISLAND the Duelmaster was this turn's 
most-challenged warrior.  Going for broke or broken, our Duelmaster THOSE I HURT 
challenged this turn.  And if variety is the spice of life, ILLIS may be getting 
bland, as LONG ISLAND 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!   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.  
BASHAHOLICS ANON, 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 who led the way in this mass 
act of cowardice?  Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It was CHAPEL ROCK.  Ha ha ha ha!  
     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.  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.  I see the crowds are getting restless, I must 
leave now-- Snide Clemens

             ATTENTION:  ALL MANAGERS WHO ARE ATTENDING THE FACE-TO-FACE

If you plan to attend the Winter Face-to-Face in Phoenix, please let Customer Service 
know.  We will hold your turns for the few days preceding the tourney, starting with 
anything that would mail out on the previous Saturday.  (This means that games due on 
Thursday the 9th (which would mail on Friday) would probably mail to you, but games 
due on the 10th and thereafter will be held and delivered to you at the tournament.  
This way, you won't have to worry about not receiving a critical turn before you 
depart for Newark, and you also don't have to worry about whether you can get a 
reprint before the first turn of the tournament is due.  

See you there!
