                                      SPY REPORT

     Oh, hi.  Its just little 'ol Debby Tonte.  Thought I'd check out JHELUM to see 
what's new.  Like, TANKS FOR NOTHIN' had to be so embarrassed when they got kicked 
off #1 spot by THE WALL!  Way to go THE WALL!  MVP award for J.A. PINKERTON?  THE 
WALL's proud of him after beating MIA2 and getting 25 points.  Talk about yer big 
time losers!  MIA2 got smashed by J.A. PINKERTON, and lost 17 points!  And I was just 
getting used to the ex-Duelmaster's habit of...(!)  Oh well, welcome FOOT BALL.  
Aren't F BALLS proud.  (Oh, my.) I hear the top team insists all their warriors get 
nine hours sleep.  They want photogenic fighters for PR photos.   
     AAARRGH!!!  I HATE SPYREPORTING!!!  Sorry.  I just had to say it.  The warriors 
of TANKS FOR NOTHIN' must be getting lonely.  They were the most avoided team.  Do 
you guys know something that I don't?  Is there some deep dark secret why BABY 
BROTHERS' been avoiding TANKS FOR NOTHIN' so much?  Or is it just that they're too 
scared?  Can DOGS OF WAR's HOWARD be more popular than me?  He was challenged the 
most, but is that really the same?   
     Man, all these warriors dying and killing each other!  Don't you guys ever give 
it a break?  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.  Its been really albendranius!  Later, guys-- Debby Tonte

Leopard -- Thank all the gods you won that one!  I'd've hated to be the Duelmaster

and have to write a column and all.  Yeah, I know, you don't have to write a column
unless you feel like--unless you're on one of Jorja's teams.  Then, yes.  And I'm
pretty sure I wouldn't be able to think of a thing to say. -- Howard

Merkava -- (heavy sigh)  If only they'd let me bring the elephants into the arena,
things would have gone SOOO differently.  But getting them over the mountains was a
snap compared to sneaking them past the stewards here.  Those guys have no
imagination.  It could have been a whole new type of combat, a new thrill for the
jaded fans, and I tried to tell them so.  But would they listen?  In the immortal
words of Debby Tonte, "As if!" -- Hannibal

If the Userous Merchant thinks that's the way to get my business, he can think again!
Gods, the gall of that man! -- Challon

The Prostitute -- With a name like that, you should probably be a standby. --
Leonidas
P.S.  Why anyone would get involved with giraffe amazes me.

Fourtoe -- Wow, I took you for a bawl-rock there at first.  Impressive.  Not as
impressive as ME, of course, but some of us have it and some don't. -- Pete Mastiff
P.S.  I suppose I can let them call me a dwarf, because I *am* rather hairy.  So long
as they don't expect me to sing "Hi Ho."  No way.

Leopard -- "Good luck"?  I'll have you know that it's great skill and nothing else
that got me to the Isle! -- Jimmy Custer
P.S.  Although I hear that we may--all us Dogs of War, or at least some of us--get
transferred to Crysalis and sent out to fight so that we can sink The Shallowship.
Ah...that isn't EXACTLY the way Jorja put it, but I can hear between the lines,
right?

Doldo d'Ariske, Veteran Mercenary -- Then you're hired. -- Hannibal
