                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, VALAMANTIS?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Later days, FLAGG'S DEVASTATORS, since 
DEATH MOB took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  DEATH MOB turned 
their 4-1-0 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 
WOLF RIDER win a fight and gain 13 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, MASTIFF beat GORMODUC 
IRN and GORMODUC IRN lost 3 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And if variety is the 
spice of life, VALAMANTIS may be getting bland, as DEATH MAGE stays top dog in the 
city.  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, VALAMANTIS?   
     My mother always told me, 'If you don't have anything nice to say, start 
talking.' I loved that woman.  What's the big D?  DEATH MOB was the most avoided 
team?  Bunch of lily livered... grumble... mumble... curse...  And it looks like THE 
BEARS avoided them the most this turn.  What a pack of would be losers, if you ask 
me.  Hmph.  Ooh, I'm frightfully impressed, WOLF RIDER was this turn's most 
challenged warrior.  Watch that ego swell, sports fans.   
     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 VALAMANTIS to get a drink than The Wasteland 
Bar!  Any suggestions?  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

Furious Basher -- I don't know what you're so upset about, but *I* didn't do it. --
Gormoduc Irn

Tgeki Roo -- You should be glad you aren't in Caleam.  They insist on turning
everything into food there.  I know that theoretically we're all food in the end, but
I see no need to make a parade out of it. -- Chea Edel

The Baron -- And a furry one you are. -- Invur Kreb

Convicted Thief?  I sneer. -- Isombard Korl

Crouching Bear -- I couldn't figure out why you were crouching like that, until that
horizontally whirling blade (and who the HECK installed that in the arena?) almost
took the top of my head off. -- Evander Gill
