                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, ERINIKA?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Later days, BLACKMAIL, since MIDDLE WAY 
18 took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  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 BRAD 
PAISLEY win a fight and gain 20 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, DUM BULL beat DEATH 
SUCKS and DEATH SUCKS lost 14 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  Due to absence, and 
inability to defend the throne, BLACK EYE has lost the Title of Duelmaster.  Start 
setting that alarm earlier!  And it's out with the old, in with the new, as 
LAELKORISSA takes the Title and last week's bar tab from the old Duelmaster.  Heh, 
heh.  The Welcome Wench, humph!  I've tasted better ale at mortuaries.  Where do they 
get this stuff?  From ERINIKA's trash dumps?   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.  What's 
the big D?  DREW'S BOYS was the most avoided team?  Bunch of lily livered... 
grumble... mumble... curse...  And it looks like SUE'S BOYS avoided them the most 
this turn.  What a pack of would be losers, if you ask me.  Hmph.  Ooh, I'm 
frightfully impressed, ROS QUIN 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.  Bye bye, warrior, bye bye...  LISA KAROL, 
a glorious 7-6-1 fighter, has passed away.  Gee, too bad MIDDLE WAY 18.  Honor is 
like a chainmail shirt, it only shines through use.  Certain nameless cowards will 
doubtless rebuke me on this one.   
     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 ERINIKA.  I feel much better now.  Paste this one in your 
scrapbooks, you'll need the kindling come this winter-- Snide Clemens

Black Eye -- All gods be thanked that you won that!  I have totally run out of things
to say in a column, and Jorja always insists that any duelmaster on one of her teams
produce something.  You are more fortunate in your manager, for that as well as other
reasons. -- Laelkorissa

Skin Peeler -- Heck, I thought it was just sunburn. -- Nolan Marrik

Stinky Pete -- Phew!  Not much for dating, are you? -- Tarin Sills

Death Sucks -- A common reaction. -- Lisa Karol

Mrs. Potatoe Head -- You must have trouble getting hats to fit. -- Ros Quin

The Persistant Beggar appears to be a bit of a joke. -- Salinda Renn

Our congratulations to Black Eye. -- Laelkorissa and also the Middle Way crew
