                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
COLLUSION COVE brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Now let's all watch HIT ME 
WITH...'s heads swell from their 3-0-0 this turn.  Haa ha ha ha!  Big shots, big 
talk, big deal.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed to see BLUE ICE win a fight 
and gain 24 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, BLUE ICE beat BLACK WIDOW XLIII and BLACK 
WIDOW XLIII lost 17 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And it's out with the old, in 
with the new, as BUSTED NUTS 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.  DRAGON 
FLIGHT, 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 CRAZY CREEPS avoided 
them the most this turn.  What a pack of would be losers, if you ask me.  Hmph.   
     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.  Titanium shields and bamboo daggers, guess 
what brave team is developing these kinds of weapons?   
     What does the COLLUSION COVE 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.  Glad 
to see the back of this place-- Snide Clemens
