                                      SPY REPORT

     I can't believe the violence in JHELUM!  I still haven't told Mom I'm writing 
Spyreports.  She'd have a cow!  Well, here we go...  MVP award for DIVING HAWK?  
TRIBAL COUNCIL's proud of him after beating EMBEZZLING SCRIBE and getting 21 points.  
Talk about yer big time losers!  BUNKER BILL got smashed by ELDERLY WOMAN, and lost 
11 points!  RAIGHNALL thinks his 12-5-0 and studly character is good enough to face 
up to the Duelmaster.  Any bets?  This Duelmaster is like something else!  BRAVE 1 
stopped RAIGHNALL 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.  TRIBAL 
COUNCIL was the most avoided team.  Is a 309-267-13 record really that scary?  Is 
there some deep dark secret why SAVAGE HORDE's been avoiding TRIBAL COUNCIL so much?  
Or is it just that they're too scared?  Can TL;DR's CRIME AND PUNISHMENT be more 
popular than me?  She was challenged the most, but is that really the same?  KAI-GHAN 
must not be a good enough fighter to get in fair fights.  He challenged BLIND BETSY.  
13 is a big difference.  (Well, that's what they tell me.) I thought KAI-GHAN showed 
great skill and promise when he subdued BLIND BETSY.  All right, so I slept through 
it!  Big deal!   
     Challenges, revenges, Bloodfeuds.  All JHELUM ever talks about is fighting!  Me, 
I'm more laid back.  Hey you guys, don't you think your families would like to hear 
from you?  Write!  (Or have someone write for you.)  
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I'm getting tired of writing this stuff, so I'm calling it quits.  Its been 
really albendranius!  Later, guys-- Debby Tonte
