                                      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.  Too bad, DOGS OF WAR, 
but TL;DR was just too good to be stopped.  MVP award for OSKSI BURGER?  SHEWISH 
BUFFET's proud of him after beating EULA and getting 24 points.  Talk about yer major 
upsets!  RED HAMMER's match with WHEEL OF TIME cost him a loss of 13 points!  What a 
putz!  IRONSIDE fights so hard to be Duelmaster, then quits fighting and loses the 
title.  No one said he was a genius...  Was that a tear I saw in WHEEL OF TIME's eye, 
as she took over Duelmastership?  And wasn't RED HAMMER fit to be tied!  Is the 
Duelmaster really being a real snob to his teammates?  Don't ask me!   
     AAARRGH!!!  I HATE SPYREPORTING!!!  Sorry.  I just had to say it.  DOGS OF WAR 
was the most avoided team.  Is a 639-826-29 record really that scary?  Hhmph!  What 
kind of warriors are JOTUN?  DOGS OF WAR, an easy team to beat if I ever saw one, 
can't get them to accept an invitation!   
     Challenges, revenges, Bloodfeuds.  All JHELUM ever talks about is fighting!  Me, 
I'm more laid back.  D'ya think OSKSI BURGER is feeling guilty for killing TL;DR's 
EULA, a mere girl?  Naah, I doubt it.  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'm getting tired of writing this stuff, so I'm calling it 
quits.  I had a fun time, see you later-- Debby Tonte

Ironside -- Today, I don't mind losing at all.  Well, I never minded much.  But
today, I, the most popular gladiator in Jhelum, have been invited to fight on the
Isle.  It's an honor, of course, but I don't really think I'll go.  I feel that my

metier is... something else, though I don't know what yet. -- Red Hammer
P.S.  I think it must be that, in the absence of a second rating, fifty fights tipped
me over.

Wheel of Time -- You're probably in league with that Rirorni villain, Standing Bull!
I can tell.  It's your big horns. -- Cusster

Da Vinci Code -- Your code is an easy one.  Try something a little trickier, eh? --
Mat'ari

Cowgill -- Ah... I thought you were female.  A cowgirl.  Guess not. -- Blind Betsy

Bestla -- What is this?  A woman!  (twirls mustaches)  Join me for the evening,
little girl? -- Warburton
P.S.  Don't mind those fools in the stands.  They're just jealous of my savoir faire.
