                                      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 FERMATA win a fight and gain 15 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, SSG5 
beat NYSSA RYE and NYSSA RYE lost 5 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And it's out 
with the old, in with the new, as FOXY LADY 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!   
     My mother always told me, 'If you don't have anything nice to say, start 
talking.' I loved that woman.  IRSON ORSON was challenged more times this turn than 
the Duelmaster.  Now was the DM insulted or feared?  Heh, heh.   
     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.  Whoa!  I'll even buy DA1 a drink tonight!  
Anyone who can come back from the Dark Arena, I want to be on his good side!  
Titanium shields and bamboo daggers, guess what brave team is developing these kinds 
of weapons?   
     There's got to be a better place in SOLVEN to get a drink than The Victory 
Tavern!  Any suggestions?  Just wait 'till next time I show up here, I won't be so 
nice!  So nyaaah!  Paste this one in your scrapbooks, you'll need the kindling come 
this winter-- Snide Clemens

Six fights, two standbys, and we only got ONE of the standbys.  There is something
WRONG with this picture.  We should have gotten BOTH standbys.  Ah, well, we went
four-one anyway.  Iyan lost, the clumsy fool.  I shudder to think what this team will
come to without me, but I'm not going to hang around to find OUT.  No way! -- Irson
