                                      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.  Later days, TOLBIN'S X-MEN, since 
THE FAMILY took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  THE FAMILY 
turned their 4-1-0 turn into a 1st place rank in the listings this turn.  Any better 
than this, and you get put on hit lists.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed to 
see HALFTIME win a fight and gain 20 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, HALFTIME beat 
LOLITA MARIA and LOLITA MARIA lost 16 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  Due to 
absence, and inability to defend the throne, BAIN has lost the Title of Duelmaster.  
Start setting that alarm earlier!  And it's out with the old, in with the new, as 
KHARIJANH 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.   
     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?   
     There's got to be a better place in VEASTIAN to get a drink than The Dripping 
Blade!  Any suggestions?  Well, I've had enough of this drivel, and I'm sure you have 
too.  Off like a dirty shirt of padded leather.  Paste this one in your scrapbooks, 
you'll need the kindling come this winter-- Snide Clemens

jacuzzi, and pool.  The rooms are blocked--code RSI--please make your reservation by 
December 15 before the block is released!  (This is prime season for Phoenix, and 
people have been unable to book rooms because they waited too long.)  Look for the 
tournament info sheet and minioverviews some time in December.  We hope you're all 
looking forward to it and that we will see you there!
