                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
ARDIVENT brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Later days, BLUVALLEY WARRIORS, 
since DEATHTONGUE took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  Of 
course, we're all terribly impressed to see SNORKY win a fight and gain 19 points, 
terribly.  Tsk, tsk, BETTY beat UNCLE BOB and UNCLE BOB lost 18 points.  You're 
breakin' my heart.  Due to absence, and inability to defend the throne, SABRE has 
lost the Title of Duelmaster.  Start setting that alarm earlier!  And it's out with 
the old, in with the new, as BROTHER JEROME takes the Title and last week's bar tab 
from the old Duelmaster.  Heh, heh.  The Victory Tavern, humph!  I've tasted better 
ale at mortuaries.  Where do they get this stuff?  From ARDIVENT's trash dumps?   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.  
DEATHTONGUE, I suppose you'll be glad to know you were this turn's most avoided team. 
Care to know who is the most afraid of you?  And it looks like FANDILS avoided them 
the most this turn.  What a pack of would be losers, if you ask me.  Hmph.  Ooh, I'm 
frightfully impressed, KATERINA COLLIN was this turn's most challenged warrior.  
Watch that ego swell, sports fans.   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for ARDIVENT'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.   
     What does the ARDIVENT arena have in common with the inns?  It's just as 
comfortable to sleep in either place.  Ha ha ha ha!  Just wait 'till next time I show 
up here, I won't be so nice!  So nyaaah!  Glad to see the back of this place-- Snide

Uh, Anonymous -- I wish you had remained both anonymous and outta sight, you Cad,
picking on a "untested" little gal like that!  You brute! -- Yvonne

Sabre -- Well done, Champ.  You make a great Duelmaster. -- Fandil The Wise

I surely hope Earl did well and comes back alive from The Mailer.  I do. -- WOF

Hey, Technogeek, what's up? -- Fandil The Wise

May you all have Health, Humility, and Honor on The Red Sands. -- WOF

Oh, I SAY!  The Virginal Concubine... I couldn't do it, what?  I didn't know where to
look. -- Bingo Little

Betty -- I'm not sure why I won that, probably my natural superiority?  Whatever the
reason, though, I'm not complaining! -- Tania Park

Fran Bran -- Lots of potassium and fiber in bran.  But not much aggression, eh? --
Mungo Burke

Rosebud -- I once saw a movie by that name.  It was an accident, though.  Wrong
place, wrong time, you know? -- Celia Randell
P.S.  They probably couldn't make one like that these days.  Not enough sex and
violence.

Oliver -- I assumed you wanted more, so I gave it to you.  Or was that David who
wanted more?  Whichever, I've got some to spare. -- Katerina Collin
