                                      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 DELNA BERIN win a fight and gain 15 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, RALTUMAN 
OMELETTE beat OLAF THORFIN and OLAF THORFIN lost 7 points.  You're breakin' my heart. 
And it's out with the old, in with the new, as TESLA SHARPE 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?   
     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?   
     There's got to be a better place in LIN TIRIAN to get a drink than The Lost Hope 
Inn!  Any suggestions?  Phlllt!  Just had to do that before I leave the fine city of 
LIN TIRIAN.  I feel much better now.  I see the crowds are getting restless, I must 
leave now-- Snide Clemens

The Count -- It's a plot, that's what it is!  You're jealous of me, and you didn't
want me to have the satisfaction of leaving on a win.  Well, I'll GET you for that,
see if I don't.  Sooner or later, when you least expect me, I WILL GET YOU. -- Black
Tom, in a blacker mood

The Veteran Mercenary bores me with his pretensions.  Half an elf is NOT as good as a
whole elf, anyone knows that. -- Tesla Sharpe

Drat that elf!  She went and annoyed the Veteran Mercenary, otherwise reasonable, as
humans go, and he took it out on ME. -- Kurtal Duck

I just can't believe the Dwarf from Khra did that to me.  I thought we had an
understanding. -- Delna Berin

Well, listen!  How was I to detect the Scribe's Embezzlement?  I'm illiterate,
dammit. -- Haroun Shaddar

13 July 11
                                   Announcing!

          The No-Tourney ADM arena will be opening for business on the
          first of August of this year!
     It will be ADM Arena #107, making use of that idle installation down at Lirin
Kiv.  If the managers involved in this arena wish to rename it, suggestions will be
entertained through the months of August and September.
