                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, JURINE?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Later days, SHEWISH BUFFET, since STAR 
WARS took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  Of course, we're all 
terribly impressed to see VENTRESS win a fight and gain 8 points, terribly.  Tsk, 
tsk, VENTRESS beat JENNI KORREG and JENNI KORREG lost 10 points.  You're breakin' my 
heart.  Due to absence, and inability to defend the throne, GRAHAM CRACKER has lost 
the Title of Duelmaster.  Start setting that alarm earlier!  And it's out with the 
old, in with the new, as DARTH VADAR takes the Title and last week's bar tab from the 
old Duelmaster.  Heh, heh.  I'm not in a very good mood today, but why am I telling 
you this?  You want to know what's new, don't you, JURINE?   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for JURINE's 
morgue.  More variety.  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.  Phlllt!  Just had to do that before 
I leave the fine city of JURINE.  I feel much better now.  Glad to see the back of 
this place-- Snide Clemens
