                                      SPY REPORT

     Ready for some action-packed adventure, some thrills, chills and spills?  Well 
fergit it, cause this is the Spyreport for JHELUM.  Too bad, DOGS OF WAR, but TRIBAL 
COUNCIL was just too good to be stopped.  MVP award for RED HAMMER?  DOGS OF WAR's 
proud of him after beating BRAVE 2 and getting 11 points.  Talk about yer major 
upsets!  BRAVE 2's match with RED HAMMER cost him a loss of 8 points!  What a putz!  
PUY fights so hard to be Duelmaster, then quits fighting and loses the title.  No one 
said she was a genius...  Was that a tear I saw in RED HAMMER's eye, as he took over 
Duelmastership?  And wasn't BRAVE 2 fit to be tied!  Is the Duelmaster really being a 
real snob to his teammates?  Don't ask me!   
     So just why would someone becomes a warrior anyway?  It can't be for these 
really neat Spyreports can it?   
     What does a fighter fight for?  I mean, the crowds don't give a hoot if someone 
gets killed.  Not after four more fights.  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!  Remember you guys, ease up sometimes!  Chill out!  Later, Debby Tonte

Armitage -- I've given it careful thought, and what I think is, you have too many
arms.  Too much "arm-itage."  But you're leaving, so it's okay, you'll probably need
them all on the Isle. -- Red Hammer

Ironside -- Just as a matter of curiosity, how did you achieve that effect?  Some of
my teammates claim that you must eat iron filings for breakfast, but surely not! --
Germaine Sheppard
P.S.  Although as a light snack before bedtime, they might be suitable.

Crime and Punishment -- But I *did*, you see, and it was truly a crime and a
punishment.  Never get into an honors literature class, the teachers have no mercy.
-- Mat'ari

Da Vinci Code -- You know, Jorja says she *tried* because she wondered what everyone
was getting so worked up about.  She said the closer she got, the more it looked like
a molehill instead of a mountain.  Myself, I don't go in for that kind of weighty
stuff. -- Cusster

I hope I am not an intolerant man, but when some Scribe Embezzles my operating
budget, STEALS FROM ME, in a word, well, I get not-tolerant very fast. -- Julian
