                                      SPY REPORT

     Ready for some action-packed adventure, some thrills, chills and spills?  Well 
fergit it, cause this is the Spyreport for JHELUM.  Like, HARMONY had to be so 
embarrassed when they got kicked off #1 spot by DOGS OF WAR!  Way to go DOGS OF WAR!  
The guys at DOGS OF WAR like really pulled together to get a 4-1-0 this turn, moving 
up by 3.  One team deserves special mention 'cause they moved up 0 after going 4-0-0. 
Keep it up, THE SHALLOWSHIP!  MVP award for BORE-O-ME?  THE SHALLOWSHIP's proud of 
him after beating KHALHUMS DWARF and getting 26 points.  Talk about yer big time 
losers!  TRILL got smashed by LEGALASS, and lost 23 points!  Oh, wow, like the 
Duelmaster must be the most popular guy in all JHELUM.  He got the most challenges.  
(But what about proposals?) Was that a tear I saw in TRAUMER's eye, as he 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 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.  The warriors of LOTHLORIEN must be getting lonely.  They were the 
most avoided team.  Do you guys know something that I don't?  Hhmph!  What kind of 
warriors are WALL OF DEATH?  LOTHLORIEN, an easy team to beat if I ever saw one, 
can't get them to accept an invitation!   
     Challenges, revenges, Bloodfeuds.  All JHELUM ever talks about is fighting!  Me, 
I'm more laid back.  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 know how much you like reading this stuff, but I really 
should stop.  I had a fun time, see you later-- Debby Tonte

Adagio -- Gosh, you're a big one to be so fast! -- Jimmy Custer
P.S.  Wish I could learn to do that.

Mordant Deserter.  (sigh)  How thrilling. -- Bigdog
P.S.  But at least I got a win.  They tell me that's always a good thing.

Galadriel -- I couldn't strike a lady!  That would be unconscienceable. -- Hannibal

Free Ball -- A peculiar concept.  Nothing is free. -- Epimonidas

So, this is gladiating.  I'm not sure I like it. -- Howard, too far in to back out

Trill -- Thanks for your willingness to face a bloodfeud, but even if we had someone
who could do it, we tend to forget little details such as issuing challenges. --
Nick, Dogs of War
