                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, DAL SHANG?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed 
to see MELOST THE GRAY win a fight and gain 11 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, MELOST 
THE GRAY beat DOOMED DUCK and DOOMED DUCK lost 8 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  
Due to absence, and inability to defend the throne, DOOMSDAY DEVICE has lost the 
Title of Duelmaster.  Start setting that alarm earlier!  And it's out with the old, 
in with the new, as MELOST THE GRAY 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!   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.   
     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.  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.  Phlllt!  Just had to do that before 
I leave the fine city of DAL SHANG.  I feel much better now.  I see the crowds are 
getting restless, I must leave now-- Snide Clemens
