                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
TRANSEL brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Of course, we're all terribly 
impressed to see ALUCARD win a fight and gain 19 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, ALUCARD 
beat STUMP JUMPER and STUMP JUMPER lost 12 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And 
it's out with the old, in with the new, as HAPPY HARRIET takes the Title and last 
week's bar tab from the old Duelmaster.  Heh, heh.  The Sultan's Tent, humph!  I've 
tasted better ale at mortuaries.  Where do they get this stuff?  From TRANSEL's trash 
dumps?   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.   
     Ah, now we come to my favorite part, where we see all the guys who are dead and 
gone, and get to see if their team cared.  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 TRANSEL to get a drink than The Sultan's 
Tent!  Any suggestions?  Phlllt!  Just had to do that before I leave the fine city of 
TRANSEL.  I feel much better now.  I see the crowds are getting restless, I must 
leave now-- Snide Clemens
