                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
DWES EG brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Later days, FEAR FACTORY II, since 
CARNIVAL OF CHAOS took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  If The 
Swinging Aardvark is buying drinks for STAFF OF MAGIUS' good turn, I'm afraid the 
place will be dry before long.  A 1-1-0 makes for a big thirst.  With any luck, I can 
sneak into The Swinging Aardvark and join ERATTA1's celebration over their good 
record this turn.  12th place, not bad.  If The Swinging Aardvark is buying drinks 
for GWAR's good turn, I'm afraid the place will be dry before long.  A 1-0-0 makes 
for a big thirst.  With any luck, I can sneak into The Swinging Aardvark and join BIG 
TEN 3's celebration over their good record this turn.  14th place, not bad.  If The 
Swinging Aardvark is buying drinks for DRAGON JUNKIES Z3's good turn, I'm afraid the 
place will be dry before long.  A 0-1-0 makes for a big thirst.  If this keeps up, 
MOTHERSHIP 2, you'll have to shine swords instead of use them.  A drop of 6 in the 
rankings?  Now let's all watch CARNIVAL OF CHAOS' 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 SHIRAK win a fight and gain 19 points, terribly.  Looks like DWES EG 
has some guts at least, JOB the Duelmaster was this turn's most-challenged warrior.  
And if variety is the spice of life, DWES EG may be getting bland, as JOB stays top 
dog in the city.  The Swinging Aardvark, humph!  I've tasted better ale at 
mortuaries.  Where do they get this stuff?  From DWES EG's trash dumps?   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.  What's 
the big D?  RESTRICTIONS was the most avoided team?  Bunch of lily livered... 
grumble... mumble... curse...  And who led the way in this mass act of cowardice?  
Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It was WHY TRAVEL?.  Ha ha ha ha!   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  Titanium shields and bamboo daggers, guess what brave 
team is developing these kinds of weapons?   
     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.  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
