                                      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 BASH 
BROS EVANGELIST took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  Of course, 
we're all terribly impressed to see MARAN TEN PALAN win a fight and gain 11 points, 
terribly.  And if variety is the spice of life, DAL SHANG may be getting bland, as 
SASHA stays top dog in the city.  Kickbacks and bribes, kickbacks and bribes, how 
else do you think some of these guys win their fights?  Skill?  Ha!   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for DAL SHANG's 
morgue.  More variety.  Honor is like a chainmail shirt, it only shines through use.  
Certain nameless cowards will doubtless rebuke me on this one.   
     There's got to be a better place in DAL SHANG to get a drink than The Blazing 
Unicorn!  Any suggestions?  Well, I've had enough of this drivel, and I'm sure you 
have too.  Off like a dirty shirt of padded leather.  Glad to see the back of this 
place-- Snide Clemens

We salute the tourney participants. -- Jorja and the Sand Dancers

So, a devastating win over a standby, and I'm out of here.  Works for me. -- Harith
ten Moru

Sasha -- Ah, well, those peeled grapes they offer the duelmaster are probably sour.
I don't need 'em. -- Garno ten Koro

And another standby down.  So he was a little shop-worn from Harith's efforts, see if
I care! -- Linnis tyl Sorn

Y'all might not think it, but Silver Eyes's manager will be secretly relieved to have
this team evaporate.  Betcha. -- Kordal t'Rohn
P.S.  Which said, I really didn't intend to kill the cat.

Why should I lose to a standby?  Probably a Dangerous Criminal in disguise.  This is
so unfair! -- Maran ten Palan
