                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
MALCORN brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Of course, we're all terribly 
impressed to see REXROTH win a fight and gain 18 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, REXROTH 
beat BRISTLECONE and BRISTLECONE lost 7 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And if 
variety is the spice of life, MALCORN may be getting bland, as MAXIMILLIAN stays top 
dog in the city.  Kickbacks and bribes, kickbacks and bribes, how else do you think 
some of these guys win their fights?  Skill?  Ha!   
     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 MALCORN to get a drink than The Victory 
Tavern!  Any suggestions?  Phlllt!  Just had to do that before I leave the fine city 
of MALCORN.  I feel much better now.  Glad to see the back of this place-- Snide

Maximillian -- Good gods, man, *I* don't want to be duelmaster!  I'd be totally
unsuited to that position.  Better you, by far. -- Bristlecone

Apok -- I was talking to a guy who said your name means "without pok."  Weird and
horrible, if true. -- Stonebow

Swordmage -- It looks to me like someone's out to get you.  The handicapper for first
choice, but who put him up to it, eh?  I mean, he can be that nasty, no doubt about
it.  But this is extreme even for him.  I'd guess it was made worth his while. --
Silverbird

Steve -- So, did you see rainbows when I connected? -- Honeysuckle

In the Dark -- Ah... listen, I'm just a kid, right?  Or I'd be taller.  And probably
you're just a kid, or you'd be taller, too.  So we should hang out together, give
each other a hand, stuff like that, yes? -- Sourwood
P.S.  Or else I should get my race designation changed, or train my SZ.
