                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of LIN 
TIRIAN brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Later days, DUNCAN'S BEST, since SAND 
DANCERS took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  Of course, we're 
all terribly impressed to see BIG BOSS win a fight and gain 14 points, terribly.  
Tsk, tsk, BIG BOSS beat HAMFIST and HAMFIST lost 13 points.  You're breakin' my 
heart.  And if variety is the spice of life, LIN TIRIAN may be getting bland, as ANN 
NASTY 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?   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for LIN TIRIAN's 
morgue.  More variety.  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!  Just wait 'till next time I show 
up here, I won't be so nice!  So nyaaah!  I see the crowds are getting restless, I 
must leave now-- Snide Clemens

Venomous Concubine.  Bah.  A pussy cat.  An OLD pussy cat. -- Ann Nasty

So I lost to a standby, I had my reasons.  The Convicted Assassin was out to GET me.  
He said so. -- Masked Marauder

That Kleen dude AIMED at me, I saw him.  Just his bad luck he got me on a day of 
resolve. -- The Weeper

Big Boss -- You aren't the boss of ME. -- Hamfist

Needy Ned -- That's your excuse is it, that you're needy?  Ha. -- Anonymous

Well, it's about time the Commission recognized my quality.  But... shortsword?  All 
my life I have been plagued by short swords. -- Ann Nasty
P.S.  But we seem to have swept the front page, which is good.

For your Yuletide bloodletting pleasure, sung to the tune of "Winter Wonderland."

                          Slay bells ring, are ya listenin'?
                        Beneath the moon, blood is glistenin'!
                         A grisly sight, we're happy tonight,
                         Watchin' all the Dark Arena fights!

                       In the daytime we can catch the action,
                         as the Duelmaster defends his crown!
                         All the criticals and bloody drama,
                     and if you're nasty you can challenge down!

                              Later on, by tavern fire,
                             managers, they'll conspire,
                        to face unafraid, the challenges made,
                            Duelin' in that Alastari land!

Wishing all good D2 managers a Happy Holidays!
