                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, VEASTIAN?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed 
to see TORN CLOTH win a fight and gain 24 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, TORN CLOTH 
beat KIRVINJ and KIRVINJ lost 18 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 Welcome Wench, humph!  I've tasted better 
ale at mortuaries.  Where do they get this stuff?  From VEASTIAN's trash dumps?   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.  
VEASTIAN, I am losing what little hope I had in you.  THE FAMILY the most avoided 
team?  What insult will suffice, I cannot say.  And it looks like FAMOUS HURLERS 
avoided them the most this turn.  What a pack of would be losers, if you ask me.  
Hmph.  JEREMIAH BROADBLADE 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.  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 Welcome 
Wench!  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 
Clemens

Wow, challenges!  How amazing! -- the Family

Big Six -- I, too, can hurl!  I hurled my defiance in your face--sorry about that,
hope it doesn't leave you with a black eye, but it wouldn't have been as effective if
I'd hurled it in your chest or at your feet--and won the fight!  This is so amazingly
GOOD. -- Baibar

Vile Henchman -- You were more vile even than I had supposed.  Curses! -- Kenseljo

Defeated by a Venomous Concubine.  I knew I should have stayed home today. --
Vaistinie
