                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, KYR'TERR?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed 
to see MUSK win a fight and gain 16 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, OBSESSION beat 
BENITO CHATTE and BENITO CHATTE lost 8 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  Due to 
absence, and inability to defend the throne, EYE OF THE NEEDLE has lost the Title of 
Duelmaster.  Start setting that alarm earlier!  And it's out with the old, in with 
the new, as OBSESSION takes the Title and last week's bar tab from the old 
Duelmaster.  Heh, heh.  I'm not in a very good mood today, but why am I telling you 
this?  You want to know what's new, don't you, KYR'TERR?   
     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.  Titanium shields and bamboo daggers, guess 
what brave team is developing these kinds of weapons?   
     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 KYR'TERR.  I feel much better now.  I see the crowds are 
getting restless, I must leave now-- Snide Clemens

Brown Eyed Susan -- Wow, a challenge!  I didn't know people did that there here!
(eagerly turning over the page)  And I won!  This is wonderful, and I appreciate a
woman with nerve and tact.  Would you permit me to buy you dinner?  Lunch?  A donut
and coffee? -- Benito Chatte

That Fratsfa Slave is fairly pathetic. -- Faizun Gote
P.S.  I tried to stir him up, get him to show a little fire, you know?  Make ME look
better, if nothing else.  Heck, I even bit him!  A zero.  No spirit at all.

Not that I'm complaining, but...the Ambitious Guard was so busy teaching me stuff, he
never really fought at all.  Talk about your easy wins! -- Dorine Eagel

What impels people to beg and, having done so, drives them further to add gladiation
to their skills?  It boggles my imagination. -- Halda Impola

That Osksi Noble--what a gambler!  I hear he actually bet one of the other standbys
that he could survive a fight where he did nothing.  Or maybe he bet that I couldn't
kill him.  Whatever.  You know how rumors are. -- Kully Lamm

Eye of the Needle -- I am grooming you for greater things on the Isle of the Eye, of
course.  With your name, I expect you will be a natural. -- Hardaridan, Master of
Unarmed Combat

Aye of the Needle -- I expect you to keep your teammate on the straight and narrow,
even needle-like, path. -- Hardaridan, Master of Unarmed Combat

Faizun Gote -- (whimper)  I'll be good!  Don't butt me again. -- Tommi Two-Toes,
cowed Fratsfa Slave

Dorine Eagel -- Have you ever considered a career as a guard? -- Finn Kinn Conn,
Guard

Halda Impola -- Now you have to feed me. -- Rowe l'Gato, Charming and Determined
Beggar

Kully Lamm -- That was needlessly harsh.  I would have surrendered if I could have
gotten a word in edgewise. -- Sinj'alenj of Osksi, don't ask why I'm blond
