                                      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 KEANU R'EHVES win a fight and gain 10 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, 
RUTHLESS JAYWALKER beat DAISY DAWG and DAISY DAWG lost 11 points.  You're breakin' my 
heart.  Going for broke or broken, our Duelmaster MONSTER MANALGER Dark Arena 
Challenged this turn.  The crowds were amazed this turn, as MONSTER MANALGER killed 
the Duelmaster, CHOPPED RABBIT, leaving UNNAMEABLES in mourning.  This incredible 
death has allowed, I might add, BEERZILLA from INGRATE WHITE NORTH to ascend to the 
throne of Duelmaster, and I hear DARK ARENA is not happy.  Kickbacks and bribes, 
kickbacks and bribes, how else do you think some of these guys win their fights?  
Skill?  Ha!   
     My mother always told me, 'If you don't have anything nice to say, start 
talking.' I loved that woman.   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for ARADI'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.   
     There's got to be a better place in ARADI to get a drink than The Blind Cyclops 
Inn!  Any suggestions?  Phlllt!  Just had to do that before I leave the fine city of 
ARADI.  I feel much better now.  Glad to see the back of this place-- Snide Clemens
