                                      SPY REPORT

     I can't believe the violence in RIZTAB!  I still haven't told Mom I'm writing 
Spyreports.  She'd have a cow!  Well, here we go...  Uncool, LEGION OF CHAOS.  I mean 
0-0-0 is bad.  Will they will be allowed to fight?  I say use 'em for training 
practice!  BLUE NOTE like really fought hard to move up to 3rd from 7th.  Way to go!  
MVP award for ELLA FITZ?  BLUE NOTE's proud of her after beating TERESIANNA and 
getting 19 points.  Talk about yer big time losers!  DIZZY GILLESPIE got smashed by 
ORIOLA, and lost 9 points!  Don't you think the Duelmaster is being unfair?  I think 
PRODICUS should let WHERE be Duelmaster for a while, without fighting about it.  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.   
     Challenges, revenges, Bloodfeuds.  All RIZTAB ever talks about is fighting!  Me, 
I'm more laid back.  Fight, fight, fight.  Is that all you guys can do?   
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I gotta leave.  RIZTAB is like such a dump, and you guys smell too much!  
Remember you guys, ease up sometimes!  Chill out!  Later, Debby Tonte

The Monk -- I should have thought I would be right in your line.  Everything in black
and white, you know. -- Oriola
P.S.  I'm sorry you "nearly died" in the Infirmary, but if you hadn't been clutching
those skills so tightly, I wouldn't have had to cut them out of your hands.  And
thanks for the skills, by the way.  I will put them to good use.

Aedesia -- Many are overcome by chocolate. -- Koko Leah

Chained Up Devil -- I suppose if you can get through iron chains, you're half way to
breaking the sticky web of... Taffy

At least when one encouters Hezash the Mouth, one can plug that gaping hole (why
doesn't he get his teeth cleaned?) with... almost anything.  Baklava, in this case.
-- Teresianna

Ella Fitz -- I know they say "it isn't over till the fat lady sings" (no personal
innuendo there), but that MEANS, first you fight, THEN you sing. -- Nelli Politana
