                                      SPY REPORT

     Oh, hi.  Its just little 'ol Debby Tonte.  Thought I'd check out SNOWBOUND to 
see what's new.  MVP award for CUNEIFORM?  MESOPOTAMIA's proud of her after beating 
BERT & ERNIE and getting 22 points.  Talk about yer major upsets!  BERT & ERNIE's 
match with CUNEIFORM cost him a loss of 22 points!  Was that a tear I saw in TIAMAT'S 
DEMISE's eye, as she took over Duelmastership?  And wasn't GARUTH HOLM fit to be 
tied!  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.  The warriors of OPEN SESAME must be getting lonely.  They were the 
most avoided team.  Do you guys know something that I don't?  Is there some deep dark 
secret why MESOPOTAMIA's been avoiding OPEN SESAME so much?  Or is it just that 
they're too scared?  Like, is JENNA KUUL popular, or what?  She was challenged the 
most in all of SNOWBOUND!  She's got a 13-29-0, is that good?  People were asking me 
did BLOGG REALLY challenge OLIVER QUEEN?  (all right, maybe they didn't, but it 
sounded good!) It wasn't a spectacular fight, or anything, but OLIVER QUEEN wants me 
to write about it since he was bested by BLOGG.  Satisfied?   
     What does a fighter fight for?  I mean, the crowds don't give a hoot if someone 
gets killed.  Not after four more fights.  So LIFE IMPACTS has one more turn to 
Bloodfeud MESOPOTAMIA's CRUSHING BELIAL.  Big deal.  BOOKS' dead.  What's the point?  
Ya just gotta go on.  Don't look 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 know how much you like reading this stuff, but I really should stop.  I had 
a fun time, see you later-- Debby Tonte

Four-one, with two standbys, and *I* got the title!  This is amazingly good.  I like
it.  Not, perhaps, QUITE enough to push for extra time to write, no duelmaster's
column, sorry.  But if someone will make a comment in this newsletter, we'll increase
our efforts and reply to it. -- Garuth Holm

The RUGS have not been kind to this team. -- Assur

Newlin Ohm -- Thanks for the confidence booster.  After losing to Cuneiform, I needed
it. -- Blind Ref
