                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
ARADI brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Now keep the taverns open late 
tonight, for there are sorrows to drown for TWILIGHT ORDER, whose 1-4-0 this turn 
dropped them by 4 into 6th.  Ha!  GREAT WHITE NORTH turned their 3-1-0 turn into a 
9th 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 SAMANTHA HAIN win a fight 
and gain 18 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, SAMANTHA HAIN beat HOLLY SKULL and HOLLY 
SKULL lost 16 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And if variety is the spice of 
life, ARADI may be getting bland, as BRUSHFIRE stays top dog in the city.  The 
Victory Tavern, humph!  I've tasted better ale at mortuaries.  Where do they get this 
stuff?  From ARADI's trash dumps?   
     My mother always told me, 'If you don't have anything nice to say, start 
talking.' I loved that woman.  CHEER-O-KEE'S, 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 TWILIGHT ORDER.  Ha ha ha ha!  Ooh, I'm frightfully impressed, BAD FAITH was this 
turn's most challenged warrior.  Watch that ego swell, sports fans.   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  And what a stunning loss we have here, boys and 
girls, SATELLITE FIVE of TWILIGHT ORDER has added the final loss to his 7-6-0.  Tee 
hee!  We're all going to die in the end, so why worry if the fate catches up with you 
sooner that later?   
     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!  Paste this one in your scrapbooks, you'll need 
the kindling come this winter-- Snide Clemens

Studbob Bulgepants -- That's right, and don't your forget it, eh. -- Magic Man

FONZ -- Might as well stand for Freaky Old Neo-Zero's.  What the hell happened to you 
all?  No ads.  No banter.  No nothing.  Is this what I've come back to?

Salkarath -- Ah.... zees eez much better.  Per'aps zee boss vill keep me around for 
just a leetle beet longer now. -- Pierre Trudeau

Flask -- I fear my doom is imminent -- Laura Secord

PH -- Eek!  Is this the end for me? -- Moose Mouse

Phreak -- I'm a bit more of handful then my teammate I'm afraid -- T.H. Bunny

All -- Is this what Aradi has come to?  A dozen or so personal ads?  You should all 
be ashamed of yourselves!! Take 5 minutes and write some crap for crying out loud!!! 
-- Magic

What, we were supposed to write personals last time and didn't and that makes us Bad 
Dogs?  Well, we were busy!  There are more important things than writing personals, 
as everyone else here must agree.  But we'll do them now, so let's not hear any nasty 
comments about rolled up newspapers! -- Spot, Red Dog Gang

55 Sucks More -- You are a very strange person, and I don't think I like you.  You 
whine, and only dogs can do that gracefully. -- Pretty Boy
P.S.  What is that in dog-years?

Moustached Rat -- (barking frantically)  You're a pest!  You're a varmit!  Come back 
out here where I can bite you! -- Flower, not a rat-terrior but willing to try

Samantha Hain -- (wagging ingratiatingly)  I didn't mean to.  Honest! -- The Tail

Hammer -- Oh, no!  No, you don't, you don't get "msiguided" onto ME.  I'll bite your 
hammer off at the elbow! -- King

Tree Huggin' Bunny -- (shaking himself thoroughly)  I'm no tree, you... you PREY. -- 
Stevie

There!  All caught up, are you satisfied? -- Spot

Chinese Sparerib -- (spitting and coughing)  Too much sweet and sour sauce, too sour! 
-- Stevie

Brushfire -- I don't really like fires.  There's no way to bite them, or jump on them 
and knock them down, and when they GET you, they HURT.  So I just don't really want 
anything to do with fires. -- Pretty Boy

Sehenstes -- I don't know what you are, but you're Convincian, and everybody knows 
that Convincians can't be trusted.  They don't throw frisbees, or play tug of war, or 
ANY of the fun things. -- The Tail
P.S.  You can always tell a Convincian because he smells like boiled potatoes.

Hana-Kali -- Gosh, YOU are Convincian, too!  And mean! -- King

Morglum Flynn -- See?  Nobody can be glum around a dog.  It's one of the things we're 
good for. -- Flower

T.H. Bunny -- Well, of course!  A good dog keeps going. -- Stevie

Death Stud -- Jusyt so you have to pay yet again. -- Soultaker

Shaman -- Thanks for the boost in my record.  Would you mind if I kill another one so 
I can get 5 more easy wins? -- Soultaker

Magic Man -- Remarks from you is such a laugh.  Aren't you the one that got married 
and found out about the opposite sex never to be heard from again?  Did you wear out 
your welcome and come back to us? -- Soultaker

ATTENTION ALL YOU ALLIANCE-TYPE PEOPLE:
For the purposes of tourney newsletter alliance listings (when I am able to do them),
you may only be listed in ONE alliance.  In other words, you have to choose!  If you
are a part of Englebert's Alliance and Englebert's Alliance is "part" of Ruthrauf's
Alliance, I will list you EITHER as part of Englebert's Alliance OR as part of
Ruthrauf's Alliance, NOT both.  The default would be the top-level alliance,
Ruthrauf's, in this example.  If you'd rather be listed separately, let me know and I
will do so, but that will be the only listing you get. -- The Saint, keeper of ever-
more-complicated lists

29 Jun 2005
The Company of Brothers (TCB) welcomes two new members to our alliance...Liam the
Goth and Buddy Lee.  We have no doubt that they will prove to be assets to our
alliance and the general dueling community. -- Baphomet, co-founder, T.C.B.
