behind a horse.  Hoof to the head.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, KALTOS?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  SHADY LADIES turned their 2-2-1 turn 
into a 2nd place rank in the listings this turn.  Any better than this, and you get 
put on hit lists.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed to see SKINNY MINNIE win a 
fight and gain 16 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, KUNG-FU MASTER beat SAIRY WELLS and 
SAIRY WELLS lost 10 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And it's out with the old, in 
with the new, as NEWLIN PARRIT 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?   
     My mother always told me, 'If you don't have anything nice to say, start 
talking.' I loved that woman.  FLAGG'S FIST, I suppose you'll be glad to know you 
were this turn's most avoided team.  Care to know who is the most afraid of you?  And 
who led the way in this mass act of cowardice?  Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It 
was SHADY LADIES.  Ha ha ha ha!   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for KALTOS' 
morgue.  More variety.  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.  Glad 
to see the back of this place-- Snide Clemens

It would have been more satisfying if the Frastsfa Slave was actually Fratsfan.  Were
actually?  Either way. -- Newlin Parrit

The Khalhums Dwarf had amazingly grabby hands.  I thought dwarves didn't DO that, at
least not across race lines. -- Sairy Wells
P.S.  Or are they species lines?  I've heard it debated both ways.
P.P.S.  You'd think he could have taught me something.  Ah, something useful in the
arena.

Buzz Kill -- Good thing I'm not Buzz then, isn't it? -- Isobel Kline

Every time that hairy little thing struts out and says he's an Osksi Noble, I'm
amazed.  But not too amazed to deal appropriately. -- Killby March

Moody Judy -- If I were a golem, I'd be moody, too. -- Oswald Quorn
