                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
JHELUM brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Of course, we're all terribly 
impressed to see WHEEL OF TIME win a fight and gain 27 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, 
WHEEL OF TIME beat CUSSTER and CUSSTER lost 23 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  
And if variety is the spice of life, JHELUM may be getting bland, as IRONSIDE stays 
top dog in the city.  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.   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for JHELUM'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?   
     What does the JHELUM arena have in common with the inns?  It's just as 
comfortable to sleep in either place.  Ha ha ha ha!  Phlllt!  Just had to do that 
before I leave the fine city of JHELUM.  I feel much better now.  Glad to see the 
back of this place-- Snide Clemens

Hmm.  We salute all the tourney participants, but reserve special mention for
Screaming Eagle, tourney victor in the Eligibles.  We wouldn't mind seeing Tribal
Council here again, even if we do get run down by that darned Deer. -- the Dogs of
War
P.S.  And if we get some Osksi Burgers and all here, that would be great!  The food
in this town is boring.

Ironside -- What a surprise to find myself facing you yet again.  Just not enough
variety at this level, is there? -- Red Hammer, trying to be philosophical about it
all
P.S.  The fans were thrilled to watch me, I suppose that counts for something.

Da Vinci Code -- Ah, not a dificult one, when you get down to it. -- Germaine
Sheppard

Crime and Punishment -- You commited the crime (being published) and I administered
the punishment (forcing you to read it).  Works for me. -- Cusster
P.S.  And just to put the cherry on your sundae, the crowd hates you.

Wheel of Time -- I believe you've broken an axle. -- Mat'ari

The Convicted Thief smelled like a loser.  I appreciate that in an opponent.  It
means I don't have to worry. -- Blind Betsy

Epee?  That's ridiculous.  I'm an orc.  Orcs don't use epees. -- Germaine
