                                      SPY REPORT

     Ready for some action-packed adventure, some thrills, chills and spills?  Well 
fergit it, cause this is the Spyreport for KOLACT.  Too bad, HORSELAKE HEROES, but 
THE HOLY LEGION was just too good to be stopped.  Cut this out and put it in your 
scrapbooks, ABOMINATION!  'Cause they got 4-1-0 and moved up to 5th!  MVP award for 
ROK REDBEARD?  VIKINGS' proud of him after beating PURPLE HOOTER and getting 20 
points.  Talk about yer big time losers!  FRIAR got smashed by DAGG AXELJORG, and 
lost 12 points!  Oh, wow, like the Duelmaster must be the most popular guy in all 
KOLACT.  He got the most challenges.  (But what about proposals?) Like, RICHARD III 
must be pretty gutsy!  He challenged the Duelmaster from TURKEY DAY MASSACRE.  Does 
this guy have a death wish or what!  Don't you think the Duelmaster is being unfair?  
I think SAUSAGE STUFFING should let RICHARD III be Duelmaster for a while, without 
fighting about it.  I hear the top team insists all their warriors get nine hours 
sleep.  They want photogenic fighters for PR photos.   
     I gotta admit I haven't been in "deep con caves" with any spies.  Really, I just 
wing this stuff.  VIKINGS was KOLACT's most avoided team.  Is there some award for 
that?  Hhmph!  What kind of warriors are THE HOLY LEGION?  VIKINGS, an easy team to 
beat if I ever saw one, can't get them to accept an invitation!   
     Challenges, revenges, Bloodfeuds.  All KOLACT ever talks about is fighting!  Me, 
I'm more laid back.  What if they had a fight and nobody showed up?  I'd be out of a 
job, that's what!!!   
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I'm getting tired of writing this stuff, so I'm calling it quits.  Remember 
you guys, ease up sometimes!  Chill out!  Later, Debby Tonte
