                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
KYR'TERR brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Gee, I'm impressed, a 4-1-0 is 
nice, but don't get cocky, THE ZOO, the Fates teach humility, and the Fates are 
proud.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed to see HAM win a fight and gain 24 
points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, HAM beat DAGGER and DAGGER lost 20 points.  You're 
breakin' my heart.  And if variety is the spice of life, KYR'TERR may be getting 
bland, as KESTEREL 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, KYR'TERR?   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.  THE 
ZOO, 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 NIGHTHAWKS.  Ha ha ha ha!  Ooh, 
I'm frightfully impressed, HAUGHA RYDE 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.  Titanium shields and bamboo daggers, guess 
what brave team is developing these kinds of weapons?   
     There's got to be a better place in KYR'TERR to get a drink than The Welcome 
Wench!  Any suggestions?  Phlllt!  Just had to do that before I leave the fine city 
of KYR'TERR.  I feel much better now.  Glad to see the back of this place-- Snide

Haugha Ryde -- I know I spelled your name wrong and I was looking at it. -- Kesterel

The Zoo -- Not what I expected.  But I'm ready for the punishment. -- Warhawk

All -- I have returned to have my warriors take their place at the top of the leader
board and to claim their right as ruler, I mean Duelmaster, of Kyr'Terr. -- the great
Pizza Toppings Guild

     Good to have you back.  The pizzas have been bland lately.

Kesterel -- Just luck, eh? -- Haugha Ryde
P.S.  But you're right about one thing:  It's pretty much you, us, and the standbys,
plus one zombie going to the Dark Arena.  Bummer.
P.P.S.  Plus, we congratulate you on your graduation.

And, while we're talking about stuff, we salute the tourney participants. -- Jorja

One-four-one and a death.  A strange round. -- Haugha Ryde
