                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, DAYLA KIV?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed 
to see GORAN DJIAN win a fight and gain 15 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, GORAN DJIAN 
beat GEORGE WAHLEN and GEORGE WAHLEN lost 6 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  Due 
to absence, and inability to defend the throne, EGGS BENEDICT has lost the Title of 
Duelmaster.  Start setting that alarm earlier!  And it's out with the old, in with 
the new, as GEORGE PETERSON takes the Title and last week's bar tab from the old 
Duelmaster.  Heh, heh.  The Crystal Wheel, humph!  I've tasted better ale at 
mortuaries.  Where do they get this stuff?  From DAYLA KIV's trash dumps?   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.  MOB 
BOSSES, I suppose you'll be glad to know you were this turn's most avoided team.  
Care to know who is the most afraid of you?  And who led the way in this mass act of 
cowardice?  Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It was I HATE TOURNEYS.  Ha ha ha ha!  
Ooh, I'm frightfully impressed, GREELO DUFFUS was this turn's most challenged 
warrior.  Watch that ego swell, sports fans.   
     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?   
     What does the DAYLA KIV arena have in common with the inns?  It's just as 
comfortable to sleep in either place.  Ha ha ha ha!  Just wait 'till next time I show 
up here, I won't be so nice!  So nyaaah!  Glad to see the back of this place-- Snide 
Clemens

Oh, cheese louise!  Only five fights today, and we're in all of them, going oh and
five.  And two of them were against standbys!  Still, we wish to testify that the
Eggs Benedict were superb.  Or was superb?  Delicious, anyway.  We hope it does not
vanish from the menu here. -- the Sand Dancers

looking forward to it and that we will see you there!
