                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, ZUKAL?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Later days, HOT STUFF, since BLUE MOON 
took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  Of course, we're all 
terribly impressed to see NORTHER win a fight and gain 13 points, terribly.  Tsk, 
tsk, DRAKE beat BITTERMAN and BITTERMAN lost 10 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  
Due to absence, and inability to defend the throne, SHORT SKIRT has lost the Title of 
Duelmaster.  Start setting that alarm earlier!  And it's out with the old, in with 
the new, as NORTHER takes the Title and last week's bar tab from the old Duelmaster.  
Heh, heh.  Kickbacks and bribes, kickbacks and bribes, how else do you think some of 
these guys win their fights?  Skill?  Ha!   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for ZUKAL's 
morgue.  More variety.  Honor is like a chainmail shirt, it only shines through use.  
Certain nameless cowards will doubtless rebuke me on this one.   
     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.  Paste 
this one in your scrapbooks, you'll need the kindling come this winter-- Snide 
Clemens

Short Skirt -- That was SERIOUSLY hot stuff!  Could I show you my fishing lures? --
Fisher King

Vasquez -- No, dear, this is MY season. -- Norther
P.S.  I just hope I graduate before the weather warms up!

Serpent 2 -- And you try harder, yes, I see that.  I don't LIKE it, but I see it. --
Bitterman

A Convicted Thief, piffling.  Easy meat.  If old Zrof One-Eye hadn't stopped me, I
would have put the fool six feet under. -- Blammo
P.S.  Which, I think, is right around the water table.  He'd have hated that.
