                                      SPY REPORT

     Ready for some action-packed adventure, some thrills, chills and spills?  Well 
fergit it, cause this is the Spyreport for MALCORN.  Like, THE GRAIL KNIGHTS had to 
be so embarrassed when they got kicked off #1 spot by GREENWARDENS!  Way to go 
GREENWARDENS!  Cut this out and put it in your scrapbooks, BLOODSWORN!  'Cause they 
got 3-0-1 and moved up to 2nd!  MVP award for MOUSE?  MARKS PARTY's proud of him 
after beating RIPPLE and getting 21 points.  Talk about yer big time losers!  RIPPLE 
got smashed by MOUSE, and lost 12 points!  Don't you think the Duelmaster is being 
unfair?  I think GROOVY SIR GRIMM should let WINTERGREEN 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.   
     AAARRGH!!!  I HATE SPYREPORTING!!!  Sorry.  I just had to say it.   
     Challenges, revenges, Bloodfeuds.  All MALCORN ever talks about is fighting!  
Me, I'm more laid back.  What a bunch of heartless!  I couldn't believe how many 
people were snickering when GEMETRIA killed WHITE RABBIT.  So he had a 6-7-0, that's 
no excuse!  Hey you guys, don't you think your families would like to hear from you?  
Write!  (Or have someone write for you.)  
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I know how much you like reading this stuff, but I really should stop.  
Remember you guys, ease up sometimes!  Chill out!  Later, Debby Tonte

NINE dead today!  We're in serious trouble.  True, the city won't perish due to the
prophecy, although I suppose the prophecy itself wouldn't be the cause anyway, but
it's perishing from the constant drain of gladiators into the Dark Arena!

In a too-typical turn-around from last fortnight, we went one-four this time.  I got
the victory, so I get The Personal.  I'm not sure this is fair.  Shouldn't the most
consistent LOSER get The Personal sometimes?  Give 'em a reason to win, above and
beyond the most pressing reason:  You can't die if you don't lose. -- Snowfoot
