                                      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 A BAD LIE win a fight and gain 14 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, VETERAN 
MERCENARY beat BOOT PRINT and BOOT PRINT lost 14 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  
And it's out with the old, in with the new, as KENSELJO 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.   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for VEASTIAN's 
morgue.  More variety.  Honor is like a chainmail shirt, it only shines through use.  
Certain nameless cowards will doubtless rebuke me on this one.   
     There's got to be a better place in VEASTIAN to get a drink than The Swinging 
Aardvark!  Any suggestions?  Phlllt!  Just had to do that before I leave the fine 
city of VEASTIAN.  I feel much better now.  I see the crowds are getting restless, I 
must leave now-- Snide Clemens
