                                      SPY REPORT

     Oh, hi.  Its just little 'ol Debby Tonte.  Thought I'd check out TRANSEL to see 
what's new.  Too bad, MY LITTLE TRIBE, but GOLDEN DAWN was just too good to be 
stopped.  MVP award for ALUCARD?  GOLDEN DAWN's proud of him after beating 
BUMBLE-FINGERS and getting 13 points.  Don't you think the Duelmaster is being 
unfair?  I think CONCUSSION should let PEREGRINE FIREHAWK be Duelmaster for a while, 
without fighting about it.  Who was the wiseguy that said TRANSEL's Duelmaster was 
paying for drinks at The Sultan's Tent?  Don't look at me!   
     I gotta admit I haven't been in "deep con caves" with any spies.  Really, I just 
wing this stuff.   
     What does a fighter fight for?  I mean, the crowds don't give a hoot if someone 
gets killed.  Not after four more fights.  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'm getting tired of writing this stuff, so I'm calling it 
quits.  I had a fun time, see you later-- Debby Tonte

Wow, where did August go?  We didn't meet during the whole month.  Ah... we were all
on vacation?  Why don't I remember a good vacation?  Surely I wouldn't have
forgotten... Acapulco?  Cancun?  Some place like that? -- Concussion

Nurnin the Unlucky lived up to his name. -- Concussion

So did the Dangerous Criminal, dammit. -- Normal Nan

     There has been a run lately of personals and columns turning up in the wrong
     arenas.  When you email in something, check and make sure you have the correct
     arena number!  It's easy for a finger to slip onto the wrong key.  When the
     receipt comes back, check again to be sure it went where you intended!
     Vigilance is your friend, and mine too. -- the Editor
