                                      SPY REPORT

     Oh, hi.  Its just little 'ol Debby Tonte.  Thought I'd check out TRANSEL to see 
what's new.  MVP award for DAZEY MAY?  PSYCHO SQUAD's proud of her after beating 
THETAS TOMAN and getting 14 points.  Talk about yer major upsets!  SONNY BOY II's 
match with ODD cost him a loss of 8 points!  What a putz!  PLAINSMAN fights so hard 
to be Duelmaster, then quits fighting and loses the title.  No one said he was a 
genius...  And I was just getting used to the ex-Duelmaster's habit of...(!)  Oh 
well, welcome JOE WILLIAMS.  Aren't BLACK AND BLUES proud.  (Oh, my.) Is the 
Duelmaster really being a real snob to his teammates?  Don't ask me!   
     I gotta admit I haven't been in "deep con caves" with any spies.  Really, I just 
wing this stuff.  For sure, I was holding my breath when I found out INK AND STEEL 
challenged SWEET FREDDY.  After all, haven't INK & STEEL FOREVER and PSYCHO SQUAD had 
a long standing duel in TRANSEL?  It wasn't a spectacular fight, or anything, but 
SWEET FREDDY wants me to write about it since he was subdued by INK AND STEEL.  
Satisfied?   
     Man, all these warriors dying and killing each other!  Don't you guys ever give 
it a break?  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 gotta leave.  TRANSEL is like such a dump, and you guys 
smell too much!  I had a fun time, see you later-- Debby Tonte

Plainsman -- Damned orc! -- Sweet Freddy

Plainsman -- Freddy actually said a lot more, but when the paper it was written on
started to smoke... we thought maybe he shouldn't send that other stuff in.  Probably
a good thing, because it burst into flames a little later. -- Jorja

Lintasia -- What?  You're... you're a ghost?  How did that....  Oh, I did it?
Really?  But... oh.  I didn't mean to, honest.  You just... well, you ran right onto
my blade, you know?  I'm not sure how that happened.  I didn't see it coming or I
would've... maybe I'd have moved the blade?  I don't know. -- Dazey May

Ink and Steel -- You mean it really IS mightier than the sword?  That's just WRONG.
-- Lizzie Broadaxe

Sluggo -- You are uncouth, and regrettably large. -- Le Bon Dao

So he's a beggar.  Big deal.  See if I care. -- Surly Shirley
