                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, ZUKAL?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed 
to see EXPENDABLE YOUTH win a fight and gain 25 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, 
EXPENDABLE YOUTH beat RED SPECIAL and RED SPECIAL lost 31 points.  You're breakin' my 
heart.  And it's out with the old, in with the new, as CHANTAL 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.  QUEEN, 
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 it looks like KARNHORN KARNAGE avoided them 
the most this turn.  What a pack of would be losers, if you ask me.  Hmph.   
     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.  Now hey, I like to see a death as much as 
the next guy, but hey KARNHORN KARNAGE, whyja send WE TODD IT to the Dark Arena, look 
at his record, huh?  We're all going to die in the end, so why worry if the fate 
catches up with you sooner that later?   
     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

Huh, two-three this time, with BOTH of our wins being over the Captured Orc.  It's a
little embarrassing, but not as much as it would have been if we'd LOST to him.  And
at least with no one else talking, we don't have to write them personal personals. --
Cyone

Listen, you Blue Moons, I am NOT a "Captured" Orc.  That's just the Commission
talking through the paper bag over its collective head.  You beat me, okay, that's in
my contract, "No showing new skills and tricks."  I think the Commission doesn't want
you LEARNING new skills and tricks from me, but that's a different issue.  Just
remember that I am NOT a "Captured" Orc and show me a little respect here. -- Geroge
Zoar, Free Orc
P.S.  A personal to me, recognizing my existence and rights to consideration, would
not come amiss.
