                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
SOLVEN brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Of course, we're all terribly 
impressed to see IN THE BUSHES win a fight and gain 13 points, terribly.  Due to 
absence, and inability to defend the throne, D.O.A. DOMINANCE has lost the Title of 
Duelmaster.  Start setting that alarm earlier!  And it's out with the old, in with 
the new, as JACKSON takes the Title and last week's bar tab from the old Duelmaster.  
Heh, heh.  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.  What's 
the big D?  MIDDLE WAY 15 was the most avoided team?  Bunch of lily livered... 
grumble... mumble... curse...  And who led the way in this mass act of cowardice?  
Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It was KELLUMBO'S KIDS.  Ha ha ha ha!  Ooh, I'm 
frightfully impressed, DOLBY JOSSEL was this turn's most challenged warrior.  Watch 
that ego swell, sports fans.  I notice JACKSON challenging down 26 points to fight 
CHUCKER ISTTA, KELLUMBO'S KIDS doubtless has some rotten excuse for such an insult to 
honor.  And sorry to say, JACKSON defeated CHUCKER ISTTA, leaving a bad feeling with 
the crowd.  I think exploitive snob is the term I'm looking for.  I guess I can give 
a little credit to LIPSTICK of KELLUMBO'S KIDS for challenging up by 19 to CHAWLIE 
ISTTA.  LIPSTICK lost to get 10 points of recognition.   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for SOLVEN's 
morgue.  More variety.  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 SOLVEN to get a drink than The Victory 
Tavern!  Any suggestions?  Well, I've had enough of this drivel, and I'm sure you 
have too.  Off like a dirty shirt of padded leather.  I see the crowds are getting 
restless, I must leave now-- Snide Clemens
