                                      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 17 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, TEX 
IMPERSONATOR beat SKYFIRE and SKYFIRE lost 13 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And 
if variety is the spice of life, DULLENS may be getting bland, as FRANKIE stays top 
dog in the city.  The Sleepy Smithy, humph!  I've tasted better ale at mortuaries.  
Where do they get this stuff?  From DULLENS' trash dumps?   
     My mother always told me, 'If you don't have anything nice to say, start 
talking.' I loved that woman.   
     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.  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.  I see the crowds are 
getting restless, I must leave now-- Snide Clemens

SIX fights this time!  True, only one of them--mine against the Paragon Orca, my old
friend and foe--but still.  Can it BE that things are looking up?  Since Dullens
arena is too low to look down....  AND we retrieved the wandering Blackhawk from the
Armored Saints.  Not that we have anything against those guys, and we'd be delighted
if they returned to fight here, but still, Blackhawk is ours. -- Blind Owl

And we now have the report (of sorts) on the most recent mail-in tourney.  And, um,
we salute the participants. -- Blind Owl

And finally, looking at the most recent slate of fights, I see we went three-two.  I
lost to the Orca, Lame Ox lost (again) to the Impersonator (he's easily confused),
and the other three defeated standbys.  As well they should. -- Blind Owl
