                                      SPY REPORT

     Oh, hi.  Its just little 'ol Debby Tonte.  Thought I'd check out TRANSEL to see 
what's new.  One team deserves special mention 'cause they moved up 0 after going 
3-1-0.  Keep it up, MEDAL OF HONOR Y2!  MVP award for USURPER?  MACHINES OF WAR's 
proud of her after beating SAM CHATMON and getting 25 points.  Talk about yer big 
time losers!  ROLL got smashed by SERGEANT 3, and lost 15 points!  Don't you think 
the Duelmaster is being unfair?  I think PRETZEL should let ALICE AIN'T HERE be 
Duelmaster for a while, without fighting about it.  Who was the wiseguy that said 
TRANSEL's Duelmaster was paying for drinks at The Victory Tavern?  Don't look at me!  
     So just why would someone becomes a warrior anyway?  It can't be for these 
really neat Spyreports can it?  CONTROL was the most avoided team.  Is a 11-9-1 
record really that scary?  Is there some deep dark secret why LIKE IT!'s been 
avoiding CONTROL so much?  Or is it just that they're too scared?  Like, is ZONE 
popular, or what?  He was challenged the most in all of TRANSEL!  He's got a 10-3-0, 
is that good?  Ooh!  Did J.K. POLK really know what he was doing when he challenged 
PRIVATE 4?  A 3-3-1 speaks volumes.  (Zontoni said that.  I don't know what it 
means.) What did J.K. POLK expect, anyway!  Of course PRIVATE 4 won.  Next time stick 
to people you have a chance against, dummy!   
     Challenges, revenges, Bloodfeuds.  All TRANSEL ever talks about is fighting!  
Me, I'm more laid back.  D'ya think USURPER is feeling guilty for killing BLACK AND 
BLUES' SAM CHATMON, a mere boy?  Naah, I doubt it.  Hey you guys, don't you think 
your families would like to hear from you?  Write!  (Or have someone write for you.)  
     I really didn't, you know, study when I was a kid.  Who would've guessed I'd be 
a famous Spyreporter?  I gotta leave.  TRANSEL is like such a dump, and you guys 
smell too much!  I had a fun time, see you later-- Debby Tonte

Three-one?  I don't MIND the new guy not being here, then, since he'd probably LOSE.
They do that, those new guys.  And it was Alice who got the loss, which means things
will be fairly quite in the guildhouse, because she probably didn't notice.  This is
all good. -- Not-a-Nut Jones
