                                      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.  Now keep the taverns open late 
tonight, for there are sorrows to drown for SCRABBLE, whose 0-2-0 this turn dropped 
them by 4 into 6th.  Ha!  Of course, we're all terribly impressed to see CAUSEY win a 
fight and gain 13 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, DENGAN THE TRADER beat EMBRON THE 
GREAT and EMBRON THE GREAT lost 15 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And if variety 
is the spice of life, DAL SHANG may be getting bland, as LORAND TEN SORN 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!   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.  
SCRABBLE, 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 who led the way in this mass act of 
cowardice?  Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It was BASH BROS EVANGELIST.  Ha ha ha 
ha!   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for DAL SHANG's 
morgue.  More variety.  Titanium shields and bamboo daggers, guess what brave team is 
developing these kinds of weapons?   
     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 DAL SHANG.  I feel much better now.  Glad to see the back of 
this place-- Snide Clemens
