                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of DAL 
SHANG brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Later days, SAND DANCERS, since 
SERPENTS HOLD took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  Of course, 
we're all terribly impressed to see HARITH TEN MORU win a fight and gain 11 points, 
terribly.  Tsk, tsk, DENGAN THE TRADER beat TOES and TOES lost 6 points.  You're 
breakin' my heart.  The Duelmaster's Dead!  Long live the Duelmaster!  Ha!  *HAPPY 
PHANTOM* has killed MAMBA in the Title bout, and this bout ain't over yet!  The 
Blazing Unicorn, humph!  I've tasted better ale at mortuaries.  Where do they get 
this stuff?  From DAL SHANG's trash dumps?   
     My mother always told me, 'If you don't have anything nice to say, start 
talking.' I loved that woman.  What's the big D?  SAND DANCERS 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 SERPENTS HOLD.  
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.  Honor is like a chainmail shirt, it only shines 
through use.  Certain nameless cowards will doubtless rebuke me on this one.   
     What does the DAL SHANG arena have in common with the inns?  It's just as 
comfortable to sleep in either place.  Ha ha ha ha!  Phlllt!  Just had to do that 
before I leave the fine city of DAL SHANG.  I feel much better now.  Glad to see the 
back of this place-- Snide Clemens
