                                      SPY REPORT

     Oh, hi.  Its just little 'ol Debby Tonte.  Thought I'd check out ZUKAL to see 
what's new.  MVP award for SEA LEGS?  SEA DOGS' proud of her after beating PAGANINNI 
and getting 12 points.  Talk about yer big time losers!  THROUGH THE WINDOW got 
smashed by RAT RACE, and lost 2 points!  This Duelmaster is like something else!  
HEMPEN JIG stopped MORAVIA MAUVE dead in hers tracks!  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.   
     Man, all these warriors dying and killing each other!  Don't you guys ever give 
it a break?  I'm always kinda bummed when a decent warrior gets killed.  PAGANINNI, 
of PHILANTHROPISTS had a 6-3-0 when he got bumped off by SEA LEGS.  AMBITIOUS GUARD 
of ZUKAL wasn't planning on killing BOMBARZOL, I bet.  Now he has to worry about 
being Bloodfeuded, and getting put on lists...  What if they had a fight and nobody 
showed up?  I'd be out of a job, that's what!!!   
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I know how much you like reading this stuff, but I really should stop.  Its 
been really albendranius!  Later, guys-- Debby Tonte

Hempen Jig -- Sometimes I get the feeling YOU should be dancing one, and I'm SOOO
tempted.  But I just don't seem to be up to it.  Yet, anyway. -- Blhu Murther
P.S.  It's a lot easier when you trap someone in an alley.

Sea Legs -- It'll do you no good at all to FLAUNT those things. -- Moravia Mauve

Ah, the Ambitious Guard.  What a surprise.  What a thrill.  But it is a win, even if
it doesn't (to ME) have much weight. -- Saffira
P.S.  One skill, bah.

The Userous Merchant has no understanding of the intricacies of the turquoise market.
He tried to palm off DYED stones on me! -- Bisbee Blue

Like I'm going to be scared of the Dangerous Criminal?  In the immortal words of
Debby Tonte, as if! -- Bombarzol

Hot Stuff -- My thanks for the introduction to Bikini and Lace Garter.  Fascinating
ladies, and so grateful to someone willing to smuggle them out alive. -- Arenamaster
