                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, LIN TIRIAN?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Later days, PBA, since ROCK-ETTS II took 
top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  I can just hear all the boasts 
coming in WILD KINGDOM's next personal ads.  Their first turn they went 2-1-0.  Of 
course, we're all terribly impressed to see VALIANT TITMOUSE win a fight and gain 14 
points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, TOE PAL beat WALLIS and WALLIS lost 5 points.  You're 
breakin' my heart.  Due to absence, and inability to defend the throne, PROOKIE has 
lost the Title of Duelmaster.  Start setting that alarm earlier!  And it's out with 
the old, in with the new, as MOONSTONE takes the Title and last week's bar tab from 
the old Duelmaster.  Heh, heh.  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, LIN TIRIAN?   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for LIN TIRIAN's 
morgue.  More variety.  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 LIN TIRIAN to get a drink than The Lost Hope 
Inn!  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
