                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, LIN TIRIAN?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed 
to see CJ win a fight and gain 18 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, BLACK TOM beat THE 
COUNT and THE COUNT lost 8 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  Due to absence, and 
inability to defend the throne, UNFORGETTABLE has lost the Title of Duelmaster.  
Start setting that alarm earlier!  And it's out with the old, in with the new, as 
SHILLIS VAIR takes the Title and last week's bar tab from the old Duelmaster.  Heh, 
heh.  The Lost Hope Inn, humph!  I've tasted better ale at mortuaries.  Where do they 
get this stuff?  From LIN TIRIAN's trash dumps?   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for LIN TIRIAN's 
morgue.  More variety.  Not that I'll be buying the drinks, but I'll be glad to see 
SHILLIS VAIR and SAND DANCERS at The Lost Hope Inn tonight celebrating their 
bloodfeud victory over MATT.  Titanium shields and bamboo daggers, guess what brave 
team is developing these kinds of weapons?   
     What does the LIN TIRIAN arena have in common with the inns?  It's just as 
comfortable to sleep in either place.  Ha ha ha ha!  Well, I've had enough of this 
drivel, and I'm sure you have too.  Off like a dirty shirt of padded leather.  Paste 
this one in your scrapbooks, you'll need the kindling come this winter-- Snide 
Clemens

Unforgiveable -- Well, at least I *survived* the experience, which a couple of my
teammates didn't. -- Shillis Vair
P.S.  If I could have used the tactic:  withhold skills, I would have done.

Matt -- Damn. -- Ghost of Khilda Maur

Joey -- Speaking as a survivor, only half a damn.  But I'd still rather have had the
win. -- Black Tom

Sjs -- How do you pronounce that?  Truly, humans--you're a lot more human than I
am!--have strange names. -- Kurtal Duck

A beggar?  Pooh. -- Harnie Black
