                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
DULLENS brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Later days, CARDOW HUNTERS, since 
HARRY POTTER AND THE took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  Of 
course, we're all terribly impressed to see BALANCE OF EARTH win a fight and gain 12 
points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, MAGICAL SHORTCUT beat KILLER and KILLER lost 5 points.  
You're breakin' my heart.  Our last turn's Duelmaster has lost, folks, lost to GHOST 
OF ELDRAD, and PIMPED OUT BROOM has made the way for a new Duelmaster!  With PIMPED 
OUT BROOM clearing the throne, HARRY POTTER AND THE of BALANCE OF EARTH takes a proud 
seat as DULLENS' new Duelmaster, by virtue of recognition points.  Arthur's Last 
Stand, humph!  I've tasted better ale at mortuaries.  Where do they get this stuff?  
From DULLENS' trash dumps?   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for DULLENS' 
morgue.  More variety.  So, CARDOW HUNTERS, just going to let DOG EARS rot in peace 
are we?  Bye bye Bloodfeud, hello gloating arrogant KILLER.  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.  Glad 
to see the back of this place-- Snide Clemens

Pimped Out Broom -- No point talking to you, but what the heck.  I tried my best to
keep you out of the title.  It's an insult to Dullens Arena if you have the title,
but... there just wasn't anyone else.  That's pathetic, but it's what we've got
today. -- Blackhorn
P.S.  And our only veteran, Anvil, keeps LOSING his fights, so he isn't going to be
in a position to take the title away from you any time soon.  Damn.

Masher -- Not into "smelling the roses," I see.  Well, they tell me it takes all
kinds.  I find that unconvincing, but still, they MIGHT be right. -- Starflower

Slasher -- What you have to understand is that Blackhorn does NOT understand.  A
gladiator has to develop SLOWLY, or he gets brittle, hollow, out-paces himself.  I'm
doing this deliberately. -- Anvil

Anvil -- That is not a statement you want to make in my hearing. -- Jorja, manager
Cardow Hunters

Hacker -- Tall guys intimidate me.  But I'll get over that, and then LOOK OUT. --
Laughter Redknife
P.S.  I don't have any idea why the crowd turned against me.  Do you?

Boozer -- Whatever you're drinking, I want some, too! -- Thunderstone
