                                      SPY REPORT

     Oh, hi.  Its just little 'ol Debby Tonte.  Thought I'd check out JHELUM to see 
what's new.  Like DOGS OF WAR's LEONIDAS is sweating since he got challenged by 
Duelmaster FOOS BALL!  This Duelmaster is like something else!  FOOS BALL stopped 
LEONIDAS dead in his tracks!  Who was the wiseguy that said JHELUM's Duelmaster was 
paying for drinks at The Welcome Wench?  Don't look at me!   
     AAARRGH!!!  I HATE SPYREPORTING!!!  Sorry.  I just had to say it.  Like, is 
CROOK popular, or what?  He was challenged the most in all of JHELUM!  He's got a 
4-5-0, is that good?  People were asking me did WALLY REALLY challenge FLIPPY THE 
HIPPIE?  (all right, maybe they didn't, but it sounded good!) It wasn't a spectacular 
fight, or anything, but FLIPPY THE HIPPIE wants me to write about it since he was 
overcame by WALLY.  Satisfied?   
     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'm getting tired of writing this stuff, so I'm calling it 
quits.  Remember you guys, ease up sometimes!  Chill out!  Later, Debby Tonte

The Veteran Mercenary.  I really wish someone would get this man a pension.  He needs
it. -- Leonidas

I had to bury the Venomous Vixen in the sand!  She was shockingly unclothed.  I could
see her (gasp) naked knees! -- Pete Mastiff

The Prostitute -- If the Venomous Vixen can lose fights, why not you? -- Joseph

Screams at Movies -- (with a grim smile)  Only because you're being tickled without
mercy. -- Crook

Steve -- You may be a dude, the rhinestone buttons on your shirt suggests it, but *I*
am THE Dude. -- Lovarno the not-modest

CALLING ALL THUGS, BRUTES, OGRES, QUARTER HALF WITS, SHALLOW HALBERD ENTHUSIASTS AND
MAUL RATS:  Since the Bashing style has often been maligned in the forums, it is time
to give the style a little tough love with the following concept:  An ALL-BASHER
arena.  The rules are simple--enter the arena as a rookie basher.  That's it.  RSI
said I need to get 20 managers on board and I'm about half way there.  If you are
interested in taking part, PM me in the forums or email me:  chase at accesspr.com
and put D2 in the subject header.

Chase a.k.a. SwineTiger

2 February 2008
ATTENTION EVERYONE -- In March I am going to do manager lists for all arenas.  This
is part of my ongoing and undoubtedly largely futile attempt to get my lists
organized.  If you think I might not know who you are or if you think I might and
you'd rather I not share that information, let me know this month!  You can e-mail
me at Sue at solberg dash mathews dot com (replacing the at, dash and dot with
appropriate characters.  You can send a diplo to The Saint.  You can put an ad in
the newsletter.  Semaphore doesn't work so well, nor does telepathy. -- The Saint,
keeper of lists
