                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
ERINIKA brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Later days, DUDS, since 
BAATANAR'RITEZU took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  If this 
keeps up, DUDS, you'll have to shine swords instead of use them.  A drop of 7 in the 
rankings?  THE BULLS turned their 2-0-0 turn into a 5th place rank in the listings 
this turn.  Any better than this, and you get put on hit lists.  Of course, we're all 
terribly impressed to see APPLE DANISH win a fight and gain 20 points, terribly.  
Tsk, tsk, APPLE DANISH beat MOLOCH and MOLOCH lost 8 points.  You're breakin' my 
heart.  And if variety is the spice of life, ERINIKA may be getting bland, as ABASHI 
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.  
What's the big D?  WORLDWIDE GORE was the most avoided team?  Bunch of lily 
livered... grumble... mumble... curse...  And it looks like BAATANAR'RITEZU avoided 
them the most this turn.  What a pack of would be losers, if you ask me.  Hmph.  
DEMOGORGON was challenged more times this turn than the Duelmaster.  Now was the DM 
insulted or feared?  Heh, heh.  And we have ANDRAMELOCKAMON in a challenge, going 
down 11 points for the fight.  Guess what?  I thought ANDRAMELOCKAMON showed great 
skill and promise when it won victory over BIMBO.  All right, so I slept through it!  
Big deal!   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  We're all going to die in the end, so why worry if 
the fate catches up with you sooner that later?   
     There's got to be a better place in ERINIKA to get a drink than The Swinging 
Aardvark!  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.  I see the crowds are getting 
restless, I must leave now-- Snide Clemens

Asmo -- Hey, I don't have much to say this turn.  Have not gotten the last turn yet,
so bear with me, brother.  I won't be fighting this turn, in Dragon Head for a turn
(was able to move my first team over to Dragon Head from DM 82) and I want to get
Twilight Shadows (655) a little fun.  I hear you will be in 47, cool, looks like all
of T.C.B. will be on the sands!  O yea!  Bloody sand! -- Liam the Goth

Baphomet -- Sounds like you're having fun in 36.  Your laughing can be heard in the
wind from the west.  Well I can't remember what I was going to ask you.  Dang, I hate
when I do that.  Well if it comes to me, I'll ask. -- Liam
P.S.  Sending a team to Jhans (36) in the next month or so (depends on how fast I get
it).

Is there anybody in the DM game who is incarcerated that has had to litigate in order
to continue playing?  Or anyone in the free world who may be able to help me with
case law or legal advice?  The Administration has already taken "D&D type games" from
us once (though I recently had that decision overturned).  I believe it's only a
matter of time before they try it again and I am prepared to file a lawsuit if need
be.  I enjoy DM and any help that could be offered would be greatly appreciated!  I
can be contacted at:

Ladies and gents...get your teams together and join in on the hottest and fiercest
contest ever to grace the arena sands!  Intrigue, personal wars, you name it...we got
it going on!  What is this contest?  It's the Turf War IV in DM 47, North Fork!!
This fantastic contest was begun by my alliance mate Asmo Dius, and I've picked up
some of the slack.  Contest starts on Turn 225 (approx. date June 9th?).  It's an
"alliance-type contest", so grab your folks and bring them in for a bang up time.
Rules will be printed in the DM 47 newsletter at least until the contest starts. --
