                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, KALTOS?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed 
to see GIDGET IMER win a fight and gain 21 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, MOSQUITO beat 
LEORA NOEVAL and LEORA NOEVAL lost 13 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And it's 
out with the old, in with the new, as CREDIT CARD 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, KALTOS?   
     My mother always told me, 'If you don't have anything nice to say, start 
talking.' I loved that woman.  What's the big D?  BLOOD SUCKERS was the most avoided 
team?  Bunch of lily livered... grumble... mumble... curse...  And it looks like 
CASSEY'S CREW avoided them the most this turn.  What a pack of would be losers, if 
you ask me.  Hmph.   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  Honor is like a chainmail shirt, it only shines 
through use.  Certain nameless cowards will doubtless rebuke me on this one.   
     What does the KALTOS 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 KALTOS.  I feel much better now.  Glad to see the 
back of this place-- Snide Clemens

Kelly -- Why is it that you are the one who looks good in green, but I'm the one with
the green eyes?  I've got to pull up my socks and do better, or jealousy will eat me
up. -- Irvina Korl

Ashley -- Oh, that totally made my day.  I'd stick out my tongue, but it would
probably freeze to the helm, which would be embarrassing and inconvenient. -- Leora
Noeval
P.S.  Good fight.
P.P.S.  Except that I hate burning out like that.  I wonder if the wind chill will
prevent me doing wind sprints?

Mother-in-Law -- A base canard, I'm sure. -- Pendru Rost

Mosquito -- Argh. -- Lulia Nim

At least the Embezzling Scribe saves us from an oh-fer turn. -- Gidget Imer
P.S.  And me, of course.

                                  LAST WEEK'S FIGHTS
