                                      SPY REPORT

     I can't believe the violence in JHELUM!  I still haven't told Mom I'm writing 
Spyreports.  She'd have a cow!  Well, here we go...  I don't wanna hurt anybody's 
feelings or anything, but BLADES OF MIST really goofed with their 0-0-0.  DEATH SQUAD 
like really fought hard to move up to 4th from 8th.  Way to go!  MVP award for 
DECAPITATOR?  DEATH SQUAD's proud of him after beating GIMLET and getting 20 points.  
Talk about yer big time losers!  FOOT BALL got smashed by PUY, and lost 7 points!  
This Duelmaster is like something else!  LEGALASS stopped VENOMOUS VIXEN dead in hers 
tracks!  Is the Duelmaster really being a real snob to his teammates?  Don't ask me!  
     I gotta admit I haven't been in "deep con caves" with any spies.  Really, I just 
wing this stuff.  DOGS OF WAR was JHELUM's most avoided team.  Is there some award 
for that?  Hhmph!  What kind of warriors are F BALLS?  DOGS OF WAR, an easy team to 
beat if I ever saw one, can't get them to accept an invitation!  Can SACRED CIRCLE's 
STILE be more popular than me?  He was challenged the most, but is that really the 
same?  INEPT must not be a good enough fighter to get in fair fights.  He challenged 
GIANETTA.  13 is a big difference.  (Well, that's what they tell me.) I thought INEPT 
showed great skill and promise when he lost to GIANETTA.  All right, so I slept 
through it!  Big deal!   
     Man, all these warriors dying and killing each other!  Don't you guys ever give 
it a break?  Hey you guys, don't you think your families would like to hear from you? 
Write!  (Or have someone write for you.)  
     I really didn't, you know, study when I was a kid.  Who would've guessed I'd be 
a famous Spyreporter?  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

White Thunder -- It comes in colors?  This is news to me, but it also opens
interesting avenues of thought.  Tell me more about this. -- Howard
P.S.  Ebon thunder, cerise thunder, aqua thunder, teal thunder, puce thunder, the
possibilities are vast.

     I think everyone can do without puce thunder.  Ick. -- Ed.

Bore-O-Me -- Sorry not to teach you more, but I fell asleep. -- Jimmy Custer
P.S.  Yeah, I know, hard to do in a fight that lasts maybe thirty-three seconds, but
I can manage it if bored enough, and you have that knack, you know?

Aragant -- You WILL do it, won't you?  Always striving for the upper hand...
difficult to see why you don't get it since you're taller than I am.  One of the
mysteries of the universe, I suppose.  But to strive is, of course, one of the
guiding principles of a gladiator, so have at it. -- Epimonidas

Fuzz Ball -- (sneezing)  Can't help it, you have that effect on me. -- Hannibal
P.S.  Good thing the elephants weren't fuzzy, or I'd never have made it over the
alps.

Foot Ball -- You kicked me! -- Challon
P.S.  I hate that.
P.P.S.  You kicked me when I was on my knees, puking my guts out, and that is LOW.
P.P.P.S.  Successful, though.  Can't argue with success.

Corra -- What's the deal?  I didn't get anywhere NEAR your accounts. -- an innocent,
really!, Embezzling Scribe

Corgan -- (whining and cringing) -- a Caught-in-the-Act Thief

Scandalf -- I just love it when I get to have my way with you, and you know you love
it, too. -- Venomous Vixen

Gimlet -- Hi-YA! -- Kung-Fu Master

Legalas -- My insurance adjuster will be calling you. -- M. Chardinee

11 August 2006
All -- I support Vendetta Cartel's observation of The Dark Knights!  If war is
declared on V.C. by The Dark Knights, then war is also declared on The Dark Knights
of the Desolate Empire by The Avengers of Light!  We have been quietly awaiting such
a chance to expose ourselves (all interested parties contact me c/o The Barbarians:
DM 31, Attn: Timothias)!  Come, Vendetta Cartel, let us show these broke-down
"Knights" what true warriors are! -- Gemini Goldphoenix, Overlord of The Avengers of
Light
