                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, OSKSI?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Now let's all watch STL RAD's 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 COBBLESTONE win a fight and gain 17 
points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, VENOMOUS CONCUBINE beat GRUNT and GRUNT lost 12 points.  
You're breakin' my heart.  And it's out with the old, in with the new, as DELON 
LUROST takes the Title and last week's bar tab from the old Duelmaster.  Heh, heh.  
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?  FRAT PARTY BLOWOUT 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 STL RAD.  Ha ha ha ha!  Ooh, I'm 
frightfully impressed, KELORINSO VHU was this turn's most challenged warrior.  Watch 
that ego swell, sports fans.   
     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.  Paste 
this one in your scrapbooks, you'll need the kindling come this winter-- Snide 
Clemens

"The battle begins amid the crowd's approval."  Well, good, glad they approve.  And
it's a different intro sentence than last time, I was beginning to wonder:  a couple
of arenas I just checked had the same sentence as last time.  That would have been,
er, something or other on the less than exciting side.  As it is...good thing there
wasn't a big crowd, or there wouldn't have been ROOM to have a battle in the midst of
its boisterous (noisemakers, drinks, fireworks) approval.

Finch's Art -- Hmm.  What is it?  I can't seem to make it out.  Birds' nests?
Feather capes?  What kind of art does a Finch DO, anyway? -- Delon Lurost
P.S.  Tell me it isn't something abstract!  I would much rather it was a real image
that I just can't figure out.

The Dangerous Criminal laughed at me.  They should never have given a dwarf that
growth potion, get them over six feet tall and they get above themselves in a very
literal sense. -- Lorins Peln the annoyed

The Osksi Noble's a dwarf?  Why is this?  We aren't in the mountains, we aren't a
mining kingdom, we--  Oh, I SEE.  It's a fake beard and a mask to hide his REAL
identity.  Lost a bet at the Winking Dove, most likely. -- Kelorinso Vhu

That Convicted Thief is pathetic.  But then, we all knew that. -- Lorille Voth

Embezzler #1 First Class -- You'll pay for that, you mechanical creep! -- Lorille
Voth

I do not respond to threats by people who are afraid to reveal their names. -- Delon
Lurost

Lorille Voth -- (whine) -- Thief #79

Kelorinso Vhu -- (sigh)  You'd think I'd know better by now than to bet while drunk,
wouldn't you? -- Masked Noble #009

Lorins Peln -- Bwahaha! -- (name withheld under threat), Dangerous Criminal

Otis 3 -- Why am I not learning things?  They told me I would learn to be dangerous
if I fought in the arena! -- Assassin Third Class # 72

Jungle Juice -- They say this will toughen up our recruits, but I'm not sure.  It may
just discourage them. -- Taldo Belansamo, Master of Mercenaries
P.S.  So he wasn't a veteran, that's life.

Grunt -- You men are all alike. -- the Third Concubine

Big Brother -- Remind me to become an only child immediately.  I believe there are
some assassins around looking for work.... -- M. Hilliense Chardinee

Freak Show -- I hate freaks, especially freaks who defeat me without teaching me any
useful skills. -- Assassin Third Class # 72

Soldier #3 -- What honor is there in being in a title match after I have ALREADY
fought twice in the same day? -- Assassin Third Class # 72
