                                      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, WORLDWIDE GORE, since 
GASHOUSE GANG took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  RYAN'S SHOWS 
turned their 2-0-0 turn into a 10th place rank in the listings this turn.  Any better 
than this, and you get put on hit lists.  Now let's all watch CALENDAR GIRLS' heads 
swell from their 3-0-0 this turn.  Haa ha ha ha!  Big shots, big talk, big deal.  Of 
course, we're all terribly impressed to see STROH & COKE win a fight and gain 21 
points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, CLIFF HANGER beat DOLT and DOLT lost 14 points.  You're 
breakin' my heart.  And if variety is the spice of life, ERINIKA may be getting 
bland, as R.S.I. stays top dog in the city.  The Dripping Blade, humph!  I've tasted 
better ale at mortuaries.  Where do they get this stuff?  From ERINIKA's trash dumps? 
     My mother always told me, 'If you don't have anything nice to say, start 
talking.' I loved that woman.  ERINIKA, I am losing what little hope I had in you.  
THE FLYING FISHES the most avoided team?  What insult will suffice, I cannot say.  
And it looks like ALPHABET SOUP avoided them the most this turn.  What a pack of 
would be losers, if you ask me.  Hmph.  URSULA ZAROFF was challenged more times this 
turn than the Duelmaster.  Now was the DM insulted or feared?  Heh, heh.  I guess I 
can give a little credit to EVE of THE BEGINNING for challenging up by 24 to URSULA 
ZAROFF.  EVE lost to get 6 points of recognition.   
     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.   
     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.  I see the crowds are 
getting restless, I must leave now-- Snide Clemens
