                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, TRICORUS?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed 
to see CM - SUBSTANDARD win a fight and gain 11 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, HELPER 
beat SKALVORD and SKALVORD lost 6 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And it's out 
with the old, in with the new, as HELPER takes the Title and last week's bar tab from 
the old Duelmaster.  Heh, heh.  The Blue Dolphin Inn, humph!  I've tasted better ale 
at mortuaries.  Where do they get this stuff?  From TRICORUS' trash dumps?   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.  DARK 
HORSEMEN, 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 who led the way in this mass act of 
cowardice?  Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It was AMAZON ELITE.  Ha ha ha ha!   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  Honor is like a chainmail shirt, it only shines 
through use.  Certain nameless cowards will doubtless rebuke me on this one.   
     What does the TRICORUS 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 
Clemens

I suppose it was inevitable that eventually a standby would catch me on a bad day,
and I'd lose the title.  I can't say I miss it, though I would have liked a
fourteenth win. -- Moondark

Puma -- Darned cats.  Ouch. -- Salmgedan

Eek -- If ever I saw a nom de arena that was a jinx, and I've seen quite a few of
them actually, yours is somewhere in that number.  Either that, or you're supposed to
be standing at the junction of county roads EE and K--really, there IS such a
junction!--and you got bored (I would) and wandered off. -- Skalvord

I was toying with the Userous Merchant. -- Hargerd

The Captain -- Judging by your teammates, that may be the only loss you ever see
here.  Glad I could give it to you.  Always like to be helpful, you know. -- Tall
