                                      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.  Of course, we're all terribly 
impressed to see FAQIR win a fight and gain 19 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, FAQIR 
beat GORBAN TEN SKORA and GORBAN TEN SKORA lost 16 points.  You're breakin' my heart. 
And it's out with the old, in with the new, as XYLOID takes the Title and last week's 
bar tab from the old Duelmaster.  Heh, heh.  The Blazing Unicorn, humph!  I've tasted 
better ale at mortuaries.  Where do they get this stuff?  From DAL SHANG's trash 
dumps?   
     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.  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.  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

So, we went five-oh, which is a thrill... until you realize that four of the wins
were over standbys.  And that the ONLY gladiator besides us and the standbys out on
the sands at all was The Blue Pill.  We salute the Blue Pill for showing up. --
