                                      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 BLIND OWL win a fight and gain 19 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, BLIND 
OWL beat QUEEN OFTHE RYCHE and QUEEN OFTHE RYCHE lost 16 points.  You're breakin' my 
heart.  And it's out with the old, in with the new, as BOUTTE takes the Title and 
last week's bar tab from the old Duelmaster.  Heh, heh.  I'm not in a very good mood 
today, but why am I telling you this?  You want to know what's new, don't you, 
DULLENS?   
     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?   
     There's got to be a better place in DULLENS to get a drink than Your Humble 
Abode Massage Parlor!  Any suggestions?  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

My bout with Boutte, if I may describe it so pun-gently, was even more pleasing to me
than to the crowd.  But I think I need to get moving faster. -- Starsinger

Oh, damn!  I hate it when I lose to Koo Koo Kung Foo.  It makes me feel so STUPID. --

looking forward to it and that we will see you there!
