      Scratchy wool, Derwear?  I don't THINK so.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Busy, busy, busy, lots of things happening in AMEN-TEI this turn, and let's 
start with a look at some of the teams.  And let's see, BERRA fought VALNAKAUR and 
gained 12 points and contributed to 1949 YANKEES' 1-1-0.  VALNAKAUR has lost to 
BERRA, falling 11 points, while helping make WAYFARERS a 2-3-0 turn.  We should ask 
NO WAY! about the thrill of victory, and what being the new Duelmaster does for a 
warrior, he's now the one to ask.  By the way, was that our Duelmaster that I saw 
last night, cramped under the table at The Warty Toad?   
     I tell you, a green quarterstaff lasts longer than a seasoned sapling.  A basher 
friend of mine assures me this is true.  I also notice that the WAYFARERS stable was 
the most avoided team this turn.  Come on AMEN-TEI, what are you afraid of?  And 
guess who avoided WAYFARERS stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was UN.  Anyone 
surprised?  Well, sports fans, take notice that VALNAKAUR from WAYFARERS was 
AMEN-TEI's most challenged warrior this turn.   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  Is it really true that AMEN-TEI has more dishwashers per capita that 
fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...   
     Thought for the day, a new sword shines bright, but the notched sword sings the 
sweetest.  It's been nice chatting with you, until we meet again, keep your swords 
sharp and your hammers heavy.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets to paper--

I hate that Jaywalker. -- Tom-Tom Tora

The Ambitious Guard.  How... exciting. -- Slippery

Berra -- I could see you needed a loss, and I was willing to share. -- Valnakaur

Shiftyeyed Peasant?  I should say SO.  I thought they were going to fall right out of
his HEAD the way they were jerking around. -- Lennalgire

Haldor Ironfoot, Professional Beggar -- If you're so noble and worthy, why are you
begging? -- Lennalgire

Gorlok Bonecrusher -- Darn straight I greased myself!  I could see you'd do horrid
things to me otherwise, and I'm against horrible things being done to me. -- Slippery

     HDFA Mission Statement
     "Show me the money!"
     This is the battle cry of a newly formed collection of like-minded individuals:
The High Dolla' Free Agent$.  We are not a tough guy alliance:  No...we offer no
battle without reward.  We search for victory and the prizes and accolades that
follow.  We are motivated by winning and will freely use whatever means necessary to
obtain our currency.  No stuffy rules, no mandates, no constitutions, no leaders,
only a few objectives:
     1) Win as often as possible
     2) Celebrate freely and revel in your victories; the more meaningless the
victory the more we celebrate.  Highsiding and chest thumping are encouraged.
Ostentatious endzone celebrations with prop usage are encouraged, regardless of
fines, penalties, suspensions or arrest by local authorities.  It is important to let
your opponent know how great you are; more importantly, you must let your own
alliance mates know how great you are.
     This is a 1-up alliance, let the performance of your fellow Free Agent$ motivate
you.  If a Free Agent wins a TV, win 2; if a Free agent wins a contest, win a more
prestigious one.
     Current members of the HDFA include:  CFH and Abraxis.  Inquires can be directed
to:  CFH/Rat Salad DM 47
