                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
KALTOS brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Of course, we're all terribly 
impressed to see TINY TOES win a fight and gain 21 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, SPAWN 
beat FELISSA HURM and FELISSA HURM lost 10 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And 
it's out with the old, in with the new, as TIFFINAL takes the Title and last week's 
bar tab from the old Duelmaster.  Heh, heh.  The Victory Tavern, humph!  I've tasted 
better ale at mortuaries.  Where do they get this stuff?  From KALTOS' trash dumps?   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.  
KALTOS, I am losing what little hope I had in you.  CASSEY'S CREW the most avoided 
team?  What insult will suffice, I cannot say.  And who led the way in this mass act 
of cowardice?  Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It was PAPER MARIO.  Ha ha ha ha!  
Ooh, I'm frightfully impressed, FELISSA HURM was this turn's most challenged warrior. 
Watch that ego swell, sports fans.   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for KALTOS' 
morgue.  More variety.  Honor is like a chainmail shirt, it only shines through use.  
Certain nameless cowards will doubtless rebuke me on this one.   
     There's got to be a better place in KALTOS to get a drink than The Victory 
Tavern!  Any suggestions?  Just wait 'till next time I show up here, I won't be so 
nice!  So nyaaah!  Glad to see the back of this place-- Snide Clemens

Et tu, Brute'?  Bye bye, Overd. -- The lonely Bombette

Katirona Murh -- I must say there was something a bit slinky about that win, eh? --
Slinky

Time is drawing nigh.  If only Bombette would graduate.  Fifteen titles, now? --
Luigi

Bombette -- A last dance, eh?  If you were trying to butter me up before I got a
chance to talk to Fergus, handing me a loss and no skills was NOT the way to do it,
kiddo. -- Orverd Quill

Sasha -- Does Casey know you're out here beating up innocent, would-be-friendly guys?
This is no way to get a date! -- Gerdig Ibbins

Kelly -- Next time, get a good night's sleep before fight day, hmm?  Not that I
actually MINDED, but just as a general comment from one gladiator to another, I'm
surprised I jumped you there. -- Jammy Larke

Slinky -- Oh, ouch, ouch, ouch.  That was not what I needed today, I already had a
headache. -- Katirona Murh

Super Patriot -- The "image" I get from a guy a foot taller than me, armed to the
teeth, is that he's trying to intimdate me.  This makes me cranky.  As you saw. --
Felissa Hurm

Bombette -- We could work on this "heat" business. -- Orverd Quill

Clank -- Is that any way to treat a vet? -- Venzo da'Kraliano, Mercenary and Sword
for Hire

Tiny Toes -- Ooooh!  That tickles! -- Larsanthek of Kurukar and Fratsfa

Spawn, Savage Dragon, and Violater -- This is unreasionable. -- Rovalo d'Kormachi,
formerly of Mordant

Gen-13 -- (groaning)  Now you really owe me!  Resurrections aren't cheap, even for we
who have contracts with the arena. -- Oh-John, Beggar at Small
