                                      SPY REPORT

     I was going on vacation, see?  Surf, sun...  But what do those bums say?  "Hit 
the road, Debby Tonte.  TRANSEL needs a spyreport."  Oh, well.  Cut this out and put 
it in your scrapbooks, THE LADY'S LIST!  'Cause they got 3-1-0 and moved up to 2nd!  
MVP award for SATCHEL?  THE LADY'S LIST's proud of him after beating PEGASUS and 
getting 11 points.  Talk about yer big time losers!  PEGASUS got smashed by SATCHEL, 
and lost 6 points!  Like WINGED LEGION's HAWK is sweating since he got challenged by 
Duelmaster HOBBLED!  And I was just getting used to the ex-Duelmaster's habit 
of...(!)  Oh well, welcome HAWK.  Aren't WINGED LEGION proud.  (Oh, my.) I hear the 
top team insists all their warriors get nine hours sleep.  They want photogenic 
fighters for PR photos.   
     AAARRGH!!!  I HATE SPYREPORTING!!!  Sorry.  I just had to say it.  Like, is HAWK 
popular, or what?  He was challenged the most in all of TRANSEL!  He's got a 11-3-0, 
is that good?  Some fights are really unfair.  How do you think JUSTIN feels about 
being challenged by SKINWALKER, 26 points above him?  SKINWALKER beat JUSTIN.  No 
surprise about that.  Really I'm not surprised SKINWALKER would do such a scummy 
thing, either.   
     Man, all these warriors dying and killing each other!  Don't you guys ever give 
it a break?  I hear WINGED LEGION sent PIGEON to the Dark Arena.  What, is that like 
not well-lit, or what?  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 know how much you like reading this stuff, but I really 
should stop.  I had a fun time, see you later-- Debby Tonte

     The Dark Knights of the Desolate Empire want to announce the joining of a new
member who cherishes the same ideals, respect and loyalty that we hold dear.
     From this day forward let all know that Blackstorm is now a Dark Knight of the
Desolate Empire Alliance.  With him as our chosen brother, our alliance only becomes
stronger.  Let all his foes become ours, and ours his.  May all our enemies' blood
flow freely and give NO quarter in war.
     This is also a warning to any cowards, bullies, etc....  If you play with fire,
you WILL get burnt!!!

To those involved, no, I have not abandoned your stories.  But I've been letting them
drift, and that has to stop, so I am taking the time to make sure that I know where
they are going, more than just "what happens next" dreamed up on the fly, before
resuming work on them.  No new stories will be started until at least one of the old
ones has concluded, for the same reason:  quantity can't substitute for quality.
Your patience in this matter is appreciated. -- the Scribe
