                                      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.  Of course, we're all terribly 
impressed to see GALLACHER win a fight and gain 15 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, 
GOLDENEYE beat THE BEAKSTER and THE BEAKSTER lost 13 points.  You're breakin' my 
heart.  And it's out with the old, in with the new, as GRIM LAUGHTER takes the Title 
and last week's bar tab from the old Duelmaster.  Heh, heh.  Arthur's Last Stand, 
humph!  I've tasted better ale at mortuaries.  Where do they get this stuff?  From 
DULLENS' 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.  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.  Phlllt!  Just had to do that before 
I leave the fine city of DULLENS.  I feel much better now.  Paste this one in your 
scrapbooks, you'll need the kindling come this winter-- Snide Clemens
