                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, AMEN-TEI?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed 
to see SLIPPERY win a fight and gain 17 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, SLIPPERY beat NO 
WAY! and NO WAY! lost 12 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  Due to absence, and 
inability to defend the throne, DIS-GRUNTLE has lost the Title of Duelmaster.  Start 
setting that alarm earlier!  And it's out with the old, in with the new, as SLIPPERY 
takes the Title and last week's bar tab from the old Duelmaster.  Heh, heh.  The 
Warty Toad, humph!  I've tasted better ale at mortuaries.  Where do they get this 
stuff?  From AMEN-TEI's trash dumps?   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.  
AMEN-TEI, I am losing what little hope I had in you.  DIS-TEAM the most avoided team? 
What insult will suffice, I cannot say.  And who led the way in this mass act of 
cowardice?  Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It was UN.  Ha ha ha ha!   
     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.  Honor is like a chainmail shirt, it only 
shines through use.  Certain nameless cowards will doubtless rebuke me on this one.   
     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.  Just wait 'till next time I show up 
here, I won't be so nice!  So nyaaah!  Paste this one in your scrapbooks, you'll need 
the kindling come this winter-- Snide Clemens

Cle -- Well, heck.  I guess I have to say Un Cle to you today.  Bummer. -- Slippery

Dis-Gruntle -- Well, I held out into the sixth minute, so that's something, isn't it?
But I'm not title material, and I know it.  At least...not YET. -- Valnakaur

Ah, the Khalhums Dwarf.  I look on it as a test of will-power.  Can I remember that
this is a fully grown and dangerous opponent, despite being the size of a kid?  This
time, I did. -- Tom-Tom Tora, not a child-beater

So!  No jaywalking on my watch, be he ever so ruthless. -- Lennalgire

I say it's the Shiftyeyed Volunteer's own fault he got run down.  I couldn't tell
which way he meant to go, his eyes were shifting so much. -- M.T. Lane

Ed. -- That's true, because it WAS a quick rise. -- Jorja

     In which case, it might have been tacks on the seats. -- Ed.

M. Golodor Chardinee -- (sneeze!) -- Tom-Tom Tora

Karrlirann of Murska, Noble Assassin -- If you want respect, get it some other way
than killing for a living. -- Slippery

MARTA station two blocks away and free parking, high speed internet (for extra charge), 
fitness center, jacuzzi, and pool.  The rooms are blocked--ask for the Reality 
Simulations room block.  Look for transportation info in the tournament information 
sheet.  We hope you're all looking forward to it and that we will see you there!
