                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of DAL 
SHANG brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Of course, we're all terribly 
impressed to see KALDAN TEN KARAN win a fight and gain 13 points, terribly.  Tsk, 
tsk, FAQIR beat EMBRON THE GREAT and EMBRON THE GREAT lost 1 points.  You're breakin' 
my heart.  And if variety is the spice of life, DAL SHANG may be getting bland, as 
XYLOID stays top dog in the city.  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.  What's 
the big D?  SAND DANCERS was the most avoided team?  Bunch of lily livered... 
grumble... mumble... curse...  And who led the way in this mass act of cowardice?  
Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It was SCRABBLE.  Ha ha ha ha!   
     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 DAL SHANG to get a drink than The Blazing 
Unicorn!  Any suggestions?  Just wait 'till next time I show up here, I won't be so 
nice!  So nyaaah!  Glad to see the back of this place-- Snide Clemens

THIS time, there were THREE warriors besides us and the standbys out there.  Is this
good, or what, eh?  Of course, we LOST to all three of 'em, but hey, the world isn't
perfect, big surprise.  We give a cheer for the presence of Xyloid, The Blue Pill,
and Faqir. -- the Sand Dancers
