                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, JURINE?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed 
to see ALETHA win a fight and gain 7 points, terribly.  Our Duelmaster has lost, 
folks, lost to VENOMOUS CONCUBINE, BUT LOCKENLOAD is still the Duelmaster because he 
has the most recognition points!  The Swinging Aardvark, humph!  I've tasted better 
ale at mortuaries.  Where do they get this stuff?  From JURINE's trash dumps?   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.   
     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?   
     I was about to buy a new quill pen the other day, but some fighter took it for 
an epee.  Forgive me for writing with a dagger.  Phlllt!  Just had to do that before 
I leave the fine city of JURINE.  I feel much better now.  I see the crowds are 
getting restless, I must leave now-- Snide Clemens

Someone's got it out for us.  We weren't supposed to be fighting!  Damn. -- the
Middle Way crew

Fairuza -- I never did like bears, especially bears I'm mis-matched against.  And it
doesn't help that I didn't even see you down there till you started gnawing on my
ankles.  (sigh)  I guess it's a good fight, since I survived it. -- Cham Dugan

Glacier -- Ah, ice.  JUST the thing when we're battling our way to warmer weather,
and I use the verb "battling" with deliberation. -- Takole Urm

Aletha -- Somehow I hadn't expected you to be a redhead. -- Xavan Yole

An Embezzling Scribe!  Splendid. -- Zoe Alden

Ed. -- Next time, don't make those sarcastic entries where the Evil Inputter can pick
them up.  I hold you PERSONALLY to blame for our presence here. -- Cham Dugan,
wondering where Jorja went

     Sorry 'bout that.  Who knew? -- Ed.
