                                      SPY REPORT

     I was going on vacation, see?  Surf, sun...  But what do those bums say?  "Hit 
the road, Debby Tonte.  KALTOS needs a spyreport."  Oh, well.  Like, TECHNOLOGY had 
to be so embarrassed when they got kicked off #1 spot by LONG SWORD CLUB!  Way to go 
LONG SWORD CLUB!  RENEGADES II like really fought hard to move up to 3rd from 6th.  
Way to go!  MVP award for MANIC?  RENEGADES II's proud of him after beating HOROLD 
JEMANS and getting 16 points.  Talk about yer major upsets!  AZRAEL's match with 
MELANDAR ORBIN cost her a loss of 12 points!  Like DARK ARENA's BANDIT PRINCE is 
sweating since he got Dark Arena Challenged by Duelmaster JUDAS PRIUS!  The crowds 
were amazed this turn, as BANDIT PRINCE killed the Duelmaster, JUDAS PRIUS, leaving 
TECHNOLOGY in mourning.  TERTIUS gets to be new Duelmaster.  But doesn't this mean 
people might try to kill him, too?  Who was the wiseguy that said KALTOS' Duelmaster 
was paying for drinks at The Victory Tavern?  Don't look at me!   
     Look, you guys stick to fighting, all right?  LONG SWORD CLUB was KALTOS' most 
avoided team.  Is there some award for that?  Hhmph!  What kind of warriors are 
TECHNOLOGY?  LONG SWORD CLUB, an easy team to beat if I ever saw one, can't get them 
to accept an invitation!   
     Man, all these warriors dying and killing each other!  Don't you guys ever give 
it a break?  Hey, warriors get killed by other warriors, not by their manager sending 
them to the Dark Arena.  What's wrong with CIRCUIT BREAKER's 3-1-0, TECHNOLOGY?  
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 gotta leave.  KALTOS is like such a dump, and you guys smell 
too much!  Remember you guys, ease up sometimes!  Chill out!  Later, Debby Tonte

Judas Prius -- Our congratulations on your graduation.  Seems like it might be well-
timed for you, but in any case, congratulations. -- Jorja and the Middle Way

Tertius -- I think the handicapper hates me.  But will Jorja issue challenges?  No!
The whole WORLD is out to get me! -- Just Losin

Quartus -- Oh, good gods!  Just thinks HE has a problem?  I'm lucky to be alive! --
Riella True
P.S.  You could've taught me more than one skill.

Hextor -- Your whole team is out to get us, isn't it?  Aren't they?  Whatever is the
proper phrasing. -- Melandar Orbin

Aha!  I get the only win on the team!  While I wish that more of my teammates had won
their fights, if there was only going to be ONE win, I'm glad it was MINE. -- Nolber
Pring
P.S.  So what if it was a standby?  It's a win.

Azrael -- And so we wrap up a 1-4 turn.  But despite what the steward said about
being "one-sided," it was closer to an even match than the others got. -- Horold
Jemans

jacuzzi, and pool.  The rooms are blocked--please make your reservation by December 15 
before the block is released!  (This is prime season for Phoenix, and people have been
unable to book rooms because they waited too long.)  Look for the tournament info 
sheet and minioverviews some time in December.  We hope you're all looking forward to 
it and that we will see you there!
