                                      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.  Later days, KILLER TUNES, since SAND 
DANCERS took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  Of course, we're 
all terribly impressed to see WHIR LI win a fight and gain 9 points, terribly.  Tsk, 
tsk, MALDI STONEBREAKER beat HEMORRHAGE and HEMORRHAGE lost 9 points.  You're 
breakin' my heart.  And it's out with the old, in with the new, as HURL LI takes the 
Title and last week's bar tab from the old Duelmaster.  Heh, heh.  The Blazing 
Unicorn, humph!  I've tasted better ale at mortuaries.  Where do they get this stuff? 
From DAL SHANG's trash dumps?   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.  What's 
the big D?  THAT SMELL 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 KILLER TUNES.  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?  Well, I've had enough of this drivel, and I'm sure you 
have too.  Off like a dirty shirt of padded leather.  Paste this one in your 
scrapbooks, you'll need the kindling come this winter-- Snide Clemens
