                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
VEASTIAN brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Of course, we're all terribly 
impressed to see SELINSIA win a fight and gain 21 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, URIJAH 
TRIGG beat WORTH LISSANDO and WORTH LISSANDO lost 7 points.  You're breakin' my 
heart.  And it's out with the old, in with the new, as MUSHAD 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.  Ooh, 
I'm frightfully impressed, SOLDIER 3 was this turn's most challenged warrior.  Watch 
that ego swell, sports fans.  I guess I can give a little credit to HAL LASKO of 
TERMAGANT VOTARY for challenging up by 22 to SOLDIER 4.  HAL LASKO lost to get 60 
points of recognition.   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  Honor is like a chainmail shirt, it only shines 
through use.  Certain nameless cowards will doubtless rebuke me on this one.   
     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 VEASTIAN.  I feel much better now.  Paste this one in your 
scrapbooks, you'll need the kindling come this winter-- Snide Clemens

All -- A 5-0-1 turn, normally I would be very excited, all 5 fights against computer
generated warriors definitely takes some of the spice out of the turn, but none the
less I'll take it.  Only needed to fight once to get my warriors to their numbers,
see ya after the mailer! -- Ragin' Bulls'

Dai ze Dai -- I've thought and through how it happened that you jumped me, and the
only thing I've come up with is that my natural chivalry came to the fore, totally
uninvited, and I just ALLOWED you to go first.  Talk about dumb. -- J'Korou

Urijah Trigg -- I believe you made an error in judgment there, but thanks for the
skills and the win. -- Selinsia

Soldier 2 -- Better you should have the title than me, it makes a person too big a
target. -- Sjordhal

Dolt Dimwit -- You're going to have to change your name. -- Worth Lissando

How can he be a PERSISTENT Beggar if he just up and QUIT? -- Noriltenne
