                                      SPY REPORT

     I was going on vacation, see?  Surf, sun...  But what do those bums say?  "Hit 
the road, Debby Tonte.  JHELUM needs a spyreport."  Oh, well.  MVP award for WHEEL OF 
TIME?  TL;DR's proud of her after beating CLUMSY MUTT and getting 16 points.  Talk 
about yer major upsets!  DA VINCI CODE's match with DANGEROUS CRIMINAL cost him a 
loss of 10 points!  This Duelmaster is like something else!  IRONSIDE stopped RED 
HAMMER dead in his tracks!  Who was the wiseguy that said JHELUM's Duelmaster was 
paying for drinks at The Swinging Aardvark?  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.   
     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?   
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I know how much you like reading this stuff, but I really should stop.  I had 
a fun time, see you later-- Debby Tonte

Ironside -- Huh, guess I wasn't set to hammer on iron.  Good work on your part. --
Red Hammer

Cassis -- I can't help but feel there should be vermouth associated with you.  Did
you bring in?  And maybe a pearl onion, or a twist of lemon.  We could party. --
Germaine Sheppard

The Stand -- A hat stand, perhaps? -- Mat'ari
P.S.  You should consider that as a possible day job; you might be good at it.

Wheel of Time -- That's a weird name for an elf.  You aren't round at all.  Maybe you
should try "Beanpole of Time." -- Clumsy Mutt

I can't help it, I have a certain sympathy for Mordant Deserters.  If *I* was in
Mordant, I'd desert. -- Julian

Ah, I note, as I move his file, that with the graduation of Pete, I now have all ten
styles from this arena. -- Jorja, Dogs of War
