                                      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 MELANJI win a fight and gain 22 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, BOOT 
PRINT beat KIRVINJ and KIRVINJ lost 13 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And it's 
out with the old, in with the new, as VAISTINIE takes the Title and last week's bar 
tab from the old Duelmaster.  Heh, heh.  The Dripping Blade, humph!  I've tasted 
better ale at mortuaries.  Where do they get this stuff?  From VEASTIAN's trash 
dumps?   
     My mother always told me, 'If you don't have anything nice to say, start 
talking.' I loved that woman.   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for VEASTIAN's 
morgue.  More variety.  Titanium shields and bamboo daggers, guess what brave team is 
developing these kinds of weapons?   
     There's got to be a better place in VEASTIAN to get a drink than The Dripping 
Blade!  Any suggestions?  Just wait 'till next time I show up here, I won't be so 
nice!  So nyaaah!  I see the crowds are getting restless, I must leave now-- Snide
