     Oh, hi.  Its just little 'ol Debby Tonte.  Thought I'd check out BLACKSTONE to 
see what's new.  I couldn't believe it.  Did REVIEW really go up by 71?  If only 
those guys didn't have so may missing teeth...  Gross!  SOUP FORCES 31 had like a 
really albendranius week!  Those hunks got a 1-0-0 and wound up as 9th team!  I 
couldn't believe it.  Did BOOK BINGE really go up by 16?  If only those guys didn't 
have so may missing teeth...  Gross!  WILD THINGS had like a really albendranius 
week!  Those hunks got a 2-0-0 and wound up as 12th team!  I couldn't believe it.  
Did PAINFUL WAY TO GO really go up by 21?  If only those guys didn't have so may 
missing teeth...  Gross!  CODE NAMES had like a really albendranius week!  Those 
hunks got a 1-0-0 and wound up as 16th team!  Wanna hear about a real loser?  Listen 
to this--N.W.A. got 1-1-0 and dropped 14.  Didn't see much of them after the fights!  
Really, just how far can one team drop in one round?  THE DONALD dropped 51, which I 
think's more than all the other teams combined!  See if I even talk to any of those 
losers in REVIEW 2 again!  Didja see where they got 0-1-0?  Somebody musta won a 
lotta fights!  Wanna hear about a real loser?  Listen to this--PAINFULL VIBES got 
0-1-0 and dropped 22.  Didn't see much of them after the fights!  Really, just how 
far can one team drop in one round?  FEAR FACTORY 16 dropped 26, which I think's more 
than all the other teams combined!  See if I even talk to any of those losers in 
STATIC SANITY again!  Didja see where they got 0-1-0?  Somebody musta won a lotta 
fights!  Wanna hear about a real loser?  Listen to this--BIRDEMIC got 0-1-0 and 
dropped 19.  Didn't see much of them after the fights!  I couldn't believe it.  Did 
HOME BREWS really go up by 27?  If only those guys didn't have so may missing 
teeth...  Gross!  ALL FOR ONE had like a really albendranius week!  Those hunks got a 
1-0-0 and wound up as 70th team!  See if I even talk to any of those losers in WOB 
AEG again!  Didja see where they got 0-1-0?  Somebody musta won a lotta fights!  
Really, just how far can one team drop in one round?  FEAR FACTORY 19 dropped 18, 
which I think's more than all the other teams combined!  Wanna hear about a real 
loser?  Listen to this--SOUP FORCES 2 got 0-1-0 and dropped 11.  Didn't see much of 
them after the fights!  See if I even talk to any of those losers in THE SUPERHEROES 
again!  Didja see where they got 0-1-0?  Somebody musta won a lotta fights!  Wanna 
hear about a real loser?  Listen to this--CHICAGO BOUND 15 got 0-1-0 and dropped 64.  
Didn't see much of them after the fights!  MVP award for JOPUST SHIRT?  SPRING! XIV's 
proud of it after beating ASTRONOMY DOMINE and getting 38 points.  Talk about yer 
major upsets!  EFFICIENT ASSESSMENT's match with SEPTUM DRESS cost him a loss of 22 
points!  Like DARK ARENA's DARK CHAMPION is sweating since he got Dark Arena 
Challenged by Duelmaster THE PROFESSOR!  Don't you think the Duelmaster is being 
unfair?  I think THE PROFESSOR should let DARK CHAMPION be Duelmaster for a while, 
without fighting about it.  Who was the wiseguy that said BLACKSTONE's Duelmaster was 
paying for drinks at The Warty Toad?  Don't look at me!   
     I gotta admit I haven't been in "deep con caves" with any spies.  Really, I just 
wing this stuff.  FEARSOME 5 was the most avoided team.  Is a 8-27-1 record really 
that scary?  Hhmph!  What kind of warriors are Q-SCHOOL?  FEARSOME 5, an easy team to 
beat if I ever saw one, can't get them to accept an invitation!  Like, is STEALING 
popular, or what?  He was challenged the most in all of BLACKSTONE!  He's got a 
7-5-1, is that good?  Some fights are really unfair.  How do you think COLUMBO feels 
about being challenged by UNO, 19 points above him?  Is this how ALL FOR ONE 
advances, by having their members (UNO) fight people that are really below them 
(COLUMBO)?   
     Challenges, revenges, Bloodfeuds.  All BLACKSTONE ever talks about is fighting!  
Me, I'm more laid back.  Pinch me, I must be dreaming!!!  THE PROFESSOR returns from 
the Dark Arena, maybe a "little upset" at his BALLERS teammates...  It was kind of 
sad, seeing old SKITZOID FROGGY stumbling around the arena, before VAMANTHRA finished 
him off.  Oh well!  BATTLE OF LA figured it was better to let AMBROSIA kill CALM BOMB 
unpunished, and not worry about getting nailed again!  Fight, fight, fight.  Is that 
all you guys can do?   
     I really didn't, you know, study when I was a kid.  Who would've guessed I'd be 
a famous Spyreporter?  I'm getting tired of writing this stuff, so I'm calling it 
quits.  I had a fun time, see you later-- Debby Tonte

ADDICTION (84--16645) REVIEWIC THOUGHTS

                     PAYMENTS BY CHECK AND MONEY ORDER -- CHANGE

Please note that because of new bank regulations, we can no longer accept any check or 
money order drawn off a non-US bank, even if it is in US Funds.  We were just informed 
by our bank that the fee to process these checks is $40, which is crazy high!

Many apologies to our foreign players, but you will need to either get a check from a 
US bank (Chase, Citigroup, etc.) or pay via credit card.  

  Armsilbar liked being Master of the Stronghold Academy, all except for one part.

He had to talk to Sheila Greywand at least once a week, usually oftener.  She was 
getting more erratic.  More chaotic.  That would be the effect of the Grey Wand.  It 
was a powerful chaotic artifact, and she kept it with her always.  She had turned his 
predecessor into a frog--or 164 frogs--and then summoned all the members of the 
Academy to a frog-leg dinner.  That had been, ah, bad.  Yes, very bad.
     But here he was entering her chambers.  With, well, it couldn't be called GOOD 
news.  And the look she turned on him--she was in an orcish mood today, all scowling 
black brows and bared fangs--that made him nervous.  But some things had to be done.  
He cleared his throat, which seemed to have a frog in it, and said, "It's about the 
next tourney prize, Lady.  I know it's more than two months away, but this isn't too 
soon to start thinking of some new, exciting prize--"
     "I have no intention of thinking about 'new, exciting prizes'," she snapped.  Or 
was that a snarl?  "These managers are getting above themselves.  They act like I 
created the arena system for their amusement!  There will be one standard prize for 
all the tourneys.  Just one."
     He had a horrible vision of all the managers walking out in a mass.  Perhaps it 
wouldn't be that bad, but it wouldn't be good.  And if he said the wrong thing, well, 
the next frog-leg dinner might be him. "Er, ah, perhaps a specific prize for each 
tourney--a spring prize, a summer prize, and so on?  The managers expect--"
     She exploded.  A literal explosion, the force of the blast blew his hair off.  
She said several things in an obsolete dialect of orcish.  He stepped backward, then 
again.  The blast had blown the door open behind him.  If he could make it out before 
something else happened--
     "Ribbit!  Ribbit!"
