                                      SPY REPORT

     Oh, hi.  Its just little 'ol Debby Tonte.  Thought I'd check out JHELUM to see 
what's new.  The guys at DOGS OF WAR like really pulled together to get a 1-0-0 this 
turn, moving up by 4.  MVP award for HAMMER?  HARMONY's proud of him after beating 
BORE-O-ME and getting 15 points.  Talk about yer major upsets!  BORE-O-ME's match 
with HAMMER cost him a loss of 12 points!  Oh, wow, like the Duelmaster must be the 
most popular guy in all JHELUM.  He got the most challenges.  (But what about 
proposals?) DARK CHAMPION thinks its 19-20-0 and studly character is good enough to 
face up to the Duelmaster.  Any bets?  Was that a tear I saw in DARK CHAMPION's eye, 
as it took over Duelmastership?  And wasn't VANGUARD fit to be tied!  Who was the 
wiseguy that said JHELUM's Duelmaster was paying for drinks at The Welcome Wench?  
Don't look at me!   
     So just why would someone becomes a warrior anyway?  It can't be for these 
really neat Spyreports can it?  The warriors of LOTHLORIEN must be getting lonely.  
They were the most avoided team.  Do you guys know something that I don't?  I don't 
know what THE SHALLOWSHIP's been doing.  They certainly haven't been accepting many 
fights from LOTHLORIEN, that's fer sher.   
     What does a fighter fight for?  I mean, the crowds don't give a hoot if someone 
gets killed.  Not after four more fights.  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 gotta leave.  JHELUM is like such a dump, and you guys smell too much!  I 
had a fun time, see you later-- Debby Tonte
