                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
ARADI brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Of course, we're all terribly 
impressed to see DIGGITY DOG win a fight and gain 18 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, 
DIGGITY DOG beat ANON and ANON lost 13 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And it's 
out with the old, in with the new, as SLIPPERS 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.   
     Ah, now we come to my favorite part, where we see all the guys who are dead and 
gone, and get to see if their team cared.  Well, FENWRIST, I guess THE WILLBURYS 13 
stable was just too chicken to bloodfeud you over FALKYNOR.  I guess cowardice is 
part of managing a team.  We're all going to die in the end, so why worry if the fate 
catches up with you sooner that later?   
     What does the ARADI arena have in common with the inns?  It's just as 
comfortable to sleep in either place.  Ha ha ha ha!  Well, I've had enough of this 
drivel, and I'm sure you have too.  Off like a dirty shirt of padded leather.  I see 
the crowds are getting restless, I must leave now-- Snide Clemens
