                                      SPY REPORT

     Ready for some action-packed adventure, some thrills, chills and spills?  Well 
fergit it, cause this is the Spyreport for KOLACT.  Like, SPRINGBORN had to be so 
embarrassed when they got kicked off #1 spot by SIR AGLIO!  Way to go SIR AGLIO!  
What was the name of that team who got 3-0-0 this turn for a total 512-425-18 you 
ask?  (Sure)  QUBIT's their name, and fighting's their game!  I talked to CHILDREN OF 
INTI's manager before the fights.  He said, "We're gonna do good."  And look at this: 
4-1-3!  Psychic, or what!  MVP award for KALASASAYA?  CHILDREN OF INTI's proud of her 
after beating EMBEZZLING SCRIBE and getting 20 points.  Talk about yer big time 
losers!  MR SHRDLU got smashed by QUASIMODO, and lost 7 points!  This Duelmaster is 
like something else!  QUO VADIS stopped ACTAON dead in his tracks!  I hear the top 
team insists all their warriors get nine hours sleep.  They want photogenic fighters 
for PR photos.   
     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.  What if they had a fight and nobody showed 
up?  I'd be out of a job, that's what!!!   
     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.  Its been really albendranius!  Later, guys-- Debby Tonte

Quo Vadis -- You learned all that from little ole me?  Don't know whennnn I've found
a loss so flattering.  Oh, those inspirational new strats I'd previously
proclaimed...those weren't them. <grin> -- Sadie

Aristorkus -- How about that tourney?  You never know what a fool you can be until
you travel to the tourney.  I speak now in the supposition that you haven't been to
the tourney and are not now already a fool. -- Sardine Sally

Sir Cumference -- You off-shore island you, giving the reef an inferiority complex
like that.  You better beat it, I hear they're going to tear you down and put up an
office building where you're standing.  Ha! -- Wanda

Estrella -- Buck up, lassie.  You're well into the far turn, coming around the bend
and heading for the home stretch.  Besides, cauliflower is nothing but cabbage with a
college education. (SC)  No, I don't know what that means.  It's supposed to be
ethereal, figure I'll sound intellectually minded. -- Mr. Shrdlu

Sir Broke Stroker -- Ouch, you broke my stroke, sir, and I couldn't get it back. --
Actaon

Mr Shrdlu-O -- I take the O back from you, foul fink!  You are no kind of gentleman
and don't DESERVE to have a spare O. -- O-Estrella

Quip -- Yes, yes, no doubt.  But I don't have time for that today.  I gave one of my
Os to Mr Shrdlu, who clearly needed another vowel, it was stolen by my teammate O-
Estrella in a fit of pique, and I must retrieve it.  And since no one seems to be
appreciating it properly, I will KEEP it myself. -- Monoday

Sir Cophagus -- I've been having that kind of problem, too, but mint seems to help.
-- Cynica

Sardine Sally -- You have a bathtub full of FISH?  Huh.  I had been wondering about
that smell.... -- Aristorkus

Ed. -- O-futures...what a terrible thought!  What will this do to our alphabetic
economy?  It could become an ecnmy! -- Monoday

     As long as the other vowels don't start getting hoarded.... -- Ed.

To all those lookin' for some easy pickins:  I, Elfwine, manager of The Shallowship,
the most feared team in all of Jhelum, invite all who seek wide open spaces for pubs
and other such establishments of limited debauchery, to visit this deserted city and
help me clear up some of the dust.  I'm just about ready to have my guys face off
against each other to get some new action.  Guess I'd better join a tournament or
something...hmmmm, there's a thought.
