                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
VALAMANTIS brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Of course, we're all terribly 
impressed to see INVUR KREB win a fight and gain 13 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, 
INVUR KREB beat MASTIFF and MASTIFF lost 8 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  Looks 
like VALAMANTIS has some guts at least, CHATTI the Duelmaster was this turn's 
most-challenged warrior.  RUSSIAN BEAR challenged VALAMANTIS' Duelmaster for a shot 
at the throne.  And it's out with the old, in with the new, as RUSSIAN BEAR takes the 
Title and last week's bar tab from the old Duelmaster.  Heh, heh.  I'm not in a very 
good mood today, but why am I telling you this?  You want to know what's new, don't 
you, VALAMANTIS?   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.  What's 
the big D?  DEATH MOB was the most avoided team?  Bunch of lily livered... grumble... 
mumble... curse...  And who led the way in this mass act of cowardice?  Let's see, 
well, whatcha know?  It was THE BEARS.  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.  And sending CLAWS to the Dark Arena was supposed to 
be one of your better ideas, THE BEARS?  So, MIDDLE WAY 10, just going to let DARCI 
FERRIN rot in peace are we?  Bye bye Bloodfeud, hello gloating arrogant BEN.  We're 
all going to die in the end, so why worry if the fate catches up with you sooner that 
later?   
     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.  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

Russian Bear -- I keep expecting you to be bigger than me.  I don't know why, maybe
because I figure ANY bear should be bigger.  Well, except a cub. -- Gormoduc Irn

M. Chardinee.  Oh, well, it's a win and a skill. -- Invur Kreb
P.S.  And no delay, since I one-shotted him.

Kung-Fu Master -- Well, I guess that mail-order course works!  I didn't have high
hopes of it, but what the heck. -- Evander Gill the Victorious

Ben -- Well...at least I won't have to worry about having my appendix removed on down
the road.  Not that I'd have it removed on the road at all, if I could avoid it.
Figures of speech are strange. -- Isombard Korl

No Fear -- This refers to you, I take it, and not to me.  I definitely have some
anxieties here. -- Elen Gorvan

Our congratulations to Russian Bear. -- Jorja and the Middle Way
