                                      SPY REPORT

     I can't believe the violence in TELORINTHE!  I still haven't told Mom I'm 
writing Spyreports.  She'd have a cow!  Well, here we go...  MVP award for ALTAR BOY? 
OLDIES' proud of him after beating KELLUMBO'S INITS. and getting 24 points.  Talk 
about yer big time losers!  KELLUMBO'S INITS. got smashed by ALTAR BOY, and lost 22 
points!  What a putz!  CORNELIUS fights so hard to be Duelmaster, then quits fighting 
and loses the title.  No one said he was a genius...  Was that a tear I saw in 
CUSTODIAN's eye, as he took over Duelmastership?  And wasn't ORGAN GRINDER fit to be 
tied!  Is the Duelmaster really being a real snob to his teammates?  Don't ask me!   
     Look, you guys stick to fighting, all right?  NONSUCH HOUSE was the most avoided 
team.  Is a 73-57-1 record really that scary?  Is there some deep dark secret why 
OLDIES' been avoiding NONSUCH HOUSE so much?  Or is it just that they're too scared?  
Like, is ORGAN GRINDER popular, or what?  He was challenged the most in all of 
TELORINTHE!  He's got a 10-3-2, is that good?  For sure, I was holding my breath when 
I found out CUSTODIAN challenged ORGAN GRINDER.  After all, haven't OLDIES and CHAPEL 
OF THE GHOULS had a long standing duel in TELORINTHE?  It wasn't a spectacular fight, 
or anything, but ORGAN GRINDER wants me to write about it since he lost to CUSTODIAN. 
Satisfied?   
     Challenges, revenges, Bloodfeuds.  All TELORINTHE ever talks about is fighting!  
Me, I'm more laid back.  Fight, fight, fight.  Is that all you guys can do?   
     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
