Well that may be a first around here.  Duelmaster loses.  Losing Duelmaster becomes 
Duelmaster.   Time to change the weapon, methinks.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, TELORINTHE?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  CHAPEL OF THE GHOULS turned their 2-3-0 
turn into a 3rd place rank in the listings this turn.  Any better than this, and you 
get put on hit lists.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed to see TAURUS win a 
fight and gain 10 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, CAPTURED ORC beat VENUS and VENUS lost 
8 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And if variety is the spice of life, TELORINTHE 
may be getting bland, as LAKE EFFECT SNOW stays top dog in the city.  The Dripping 
Blade, humph!  I've tasted better ale at mortuaries.  Where do they get this stuff?  
From TELORINTHE's trash dumps?   
     My mother always told me, 'If you don't have anything nice to say, start 
talking.' I loved that woman.  What's the big D?  BAD SIGNS was the most avoided 
team?  Bunch of lily livered... grumble... mumble... curse...  And who led the way in 
this mass act of cowardice?  Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It was CHAPEL OF THE 
GHOULS.  Ha ha ha ha!  Ooh, I'm frightfully impressed, GOBLIN was this turn's most 
challenged warrior.  Watch that ego swell, sports fans.   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  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 TELORINTHE 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
