                                      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 BIG SIX win a fight and gain 17 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, BIG SIX 
beat ZILLA KHIRNAJ and ZILLA KHIRNAJ lost 15 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And 
it's out with the old, in with the new, as BAIN takes the Title and last week's bar 
tab from the old Duelmaster.  Heh, heh.  The Warty Toad, 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.  What's the big D?  UNC COLLEGE RADIO was the most 
avoided team?  Bunch of lily livered... grumble... mumble... curse...  And it looks 
like FAMOUS HURLERS avoided them the most this turn.  What a pack of would be losers, 
if you ask me.  Hmph.  KHARIJANH was challenged more times this turn than the 
Duelmaster.  Now was the DM insulted or feared?  Heh, heh.  I notice THE BIG UNIT 
challenging down 38 points to fight MARCO THE KNIFE, FAMOUS HURLERS doubtless has 
some rotten excuse for such an insult to honor.  Question now is, will VEASTIAN 
accept this sort of tacky behavior?  THE BIG UNIT beating MARCO THE KNIFE.  The 
insult, the....yech!  And we have CYCLONE in a challenge, going down 9 points for the 
fight.  Guess what?  I thought CYCLONE showed great skill and promise when he 
overcame KHARIJANH.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  Titanium shields and bamboo daggers, guess what brave 
team is developing these kinds of weapons?   
     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.  Glad to see the back of 
this place-- Snide Clemens

Franklin St. -- Everyone looks for the fastball, so I like to throw something that
looks like a fastball, but is anything but. -- Cyclone

Marco the Knife -- Has it been so long that Jorja has an entire new generation of
warriors here!?!  Seems like it wasn't that long ago. -- The Big Unit

Black Janjo -- Didn't have my best stuff last week... -- Big Six

Four-one for the X-Men, today, but they weren't defeating us, so it's all good.
Those standbys need to be smacked around from time to time anyway.  For us... one
four?  Ouch.  Not the kind of turn we were hoping for, but at least we didn't DIE out
there. -- Kharijanh, still stuck doing the personal
