                                      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 TESLA SHARPE win a fight and gain 8 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, BLACK TOM 
beat SJS and SJS lost 3 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And if variety is the 
spice of life, LIN TIRIAN may be getting bland, as UNFORGETTABLE stays top dog in the 
city.  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, LIN TIRIAN?   
     My mother always told me, 'If you don't have anything nice to say, start 
talking.' I loved that woman.   
     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.  We're all going to die in the end, so why 
worry if the fate catches up with you sooner that later?   
     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.  I see 
the crowds are getting restless, I must leave now-- Snide Clemens

Unforgettable -- Like a bad curry, I'd forget you if I could... but you keep causing
me pain. -- Matt

Black Tom -- Goodness, what does that manager of yours feed you?!? -- SJS

Delna Berin -- Next time, don't only nearly kill me, the shame is worth than death.
-- CJ

Kurtal Duck -- Guess I should learn to duck... or at least get some plum sause. --
The Count

Black Tom -- Currently it's not CJ or AJ, it's Mike... He should be fighting by next
week.  He is Joey's replacement on the team. -- CJ

I still think the arenamistress should've let me kill that Convicted Assassin.  Once
an orc goes that bad, there's no redeeming him. -- Harnie Black

     Harnie Black -- Like you elves are beacons of sweetness and light?  Listen, I
     never killed except for money, and I never defaulted on a contract.  I'm one of
     the GOOD guys.  Why are YOU in this arena? -- Korg Steelnose, Hitman for Hire

Sjs -- Seems to me Harnie might have something about you orcs. -- Black Tom

Cj -- I, um, wasn't trying to kill, you just, you know, trim you down to proper
dwarven size. -- Delna Berin

The Count -- We Ducks have no use for your clumsy system. -- Kurtal Duck

Unstopable -- Slumming for the tourney?  Oh, well, do good if you can. -- Tesla
Sharpe

The Count -- I would curl my lip in scorn at your comment, but being a Duck, I don't
go in for that kind of thing. -- Kurtal Duck
P.S.  No lip.
