                                      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 INKED PIG win a fight and gain 20 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, 
CONVICTED ASSASSIN beat HONEYSUCKLE and HONEYSUCKLE lost 17 points.  You're breakin' 
my heart.  And it's out with the old, in with the new, as BOWEN takes the Title and 
last week's bar tab from the old Duelmaster.  Heh, heh.  The Victory Tavern, humph!  
I've tasted better ale at mortuaries.  Where do they get this stuff?  From MALCORN's 
trash dumps?   
     My mother always told me, 'If you don't have anything nice to say, start 
talking.' I loved that woman.   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  Consider JANUARY O. IRONTAIL gone, and EVIL EASTER 
BUNNY unfeeling, letting the bloodfeud for his death go unrevenged.  Honor is like a 
chainmail shirt, it only shines through use.  Certain nameless cowards will doubtless 
rebuke me on this one.   
     What does the MALCORN arena have in common with the inns?  It's just as 
comfortable to sleep in either place.  Ha ha ha ha!  Phlllt!  Just had to do that 
before I leave the fine city of MALCORN.  I feel much better now.  I see the crowds 
are getting restless, I must leave now-- Snide Clemens

And, again, we salute the tourney participants, this time being fairly sure which
tourney they went to. -- Jorja and the Greenwardens

Skittles -- I had intended to drown you in your beer, but the arenamaster stepped in
and stopped me.  A nuisance.  But arenamasters are always doing things like that. --
Silver Ghost

Bowen -- Damn, you robot snakes are everywhere!  If you weren't plainly identified as
genderless, I'd think you were breeding. -- Bobcat

Steve -- You have always seemed to me to be a bad boy, so subduing you was the
natural move. -- Sourwood

My teammate Silver Ghost may consider the Khalhums Dwarf "tall and manly," but to me
he's a hairy little pest. -- Honeysuckle
P.S.  And I believe the fans of Malcorn agree with me, as indicated by my popularity.

Shank -- Another golem serpent!  And you have ankles, which is confusing. -- Sundog
