                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, RIZTAB?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  SWEET MAGIC turned their 5-0-0 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 SUGAR BABY win a fight and 
gain 17 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, NELLI POLITANA beat AMMONIUS and AMMONIUS lost 
10 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And it's out with the old, in with the new, as 
TAFFY takes the Title and last week's bar tab from the old Duelmaster.  Heh, heh.  
The Dripping Blade, humph!  I've tasted better ale at mortuaries.  Where do they get 
this stuff?  From RIZTAB's trash dumps?   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  Titanium shields and bamboo daggers, guess what brave 
team is developing these kinds of weapons?   
     There's got to be a better place in RIZTAB to get a drink than The Dripping 
Blade!  Any suggestions?  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
