                                      SPY REPORT

     Oh, hi.  Its just little 'ol Debby Tonte.  Thought I'd check out DULLENS to see 
what's new.  Like, SATAN'S KINGDOMS had to be so embarrassed when they got kicked off 
#1 spot by HARRY POTTER AND THE!  Way to go HARRY POTTER AND THE!  MVP award for 
INMATE OF ARKHAM?  HARRY POTTER AND THE's proud of him after beating RAMSHORN and 
getting 19 points.  Talk about yer big time losers!  SOFT ROCK got smashed by CASSIE 
ELIZABETH, and lost 4 points!  Don't you think the Duelmaster is being unfair?  I 
think ROBERTO LEATHAM should let DARKWIND be Duelmaster for a while, without fighting 
about it.  Is the Duelmaster really being a real snob to his teammates?  Don't ask 
me!   
     Look, you guys stick to fighting, all right?  HARRY POTTER AND THE was the most 
avoided team.  Is a 22-35-5 record really that scary?  Is there some deep dark secret 
why SATAN'S KINGDOMS' been avoiding HARRY POTTER AND THE so much?  Or is it just that 
they're too scared?  Can CARDOW HUNTERS' STORMBIRD be more popular than me?  He was 
challenged the most, but is that really the same?   
     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?   
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I'm getting tired of writing this stuff, so I'm calling it quits.  Remember 
you guys, ease up sometimes!  Chill out!  Later, Debby Tonte

Fowl Grouping -- And take that!  That's what you get for killing one of us, bub.  Ya
go for kills and ya gets killed.  An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth.  All that
jazz. -- Crazed Canary

Harry Potter And The... -- Please ignore CC.  He's a bit spastic.  In reality, we
were surprised he even won, given the fight advantage that Fowl Grouping had.  We
just sent him because he was the only one available to bloodfeud. -- Avenging
Antelope, Interim Manager -- Satan's Kingdom

Tiny Wand -- Heh... heh... heh.... heh heh heh heh heh heh.... Tiny Wand...  heh heh
heh! -- Deranged Dingo

Darkwind -- Fortunately, I got them to let me stay here while I'm doing some fighting
on the Isle.  And I got a promotion from Team Leader to Interim Manager.  They say
that if I do well they might promote me to Manager--full time.  Pretty cool, eh? --
Avenging Antelope

Yo!  Rollup Gods!  AA told me to tell you that we ain't building a basketball team
here.  Seven footers might be good playing that game, but they are not so good in the
arena gig.  Looks like we got a center and a power forward last time out.  Let's try
for Spud Webb! -- Crazed Canary

Yikes.  Rollup Gods, please ignore CC.  He's had too much caffeine.  Thanks. --
Avenging Antelope

Roberto Leatham -- I suppose it is our duty and honor to train duelmasters.  Well, it
could be worse, you could be a killer. -- Ramshorn

Avenging Antelope -- I salute you, and I'm glad you're not totally leaving, I'm used
to seeing you around.  Maybe you could drop by our place and beat me up once a week,
eh? -- Darkwind

Scourge -- The thing is, I don't LIKE you.  It's the deal you make out of being
holier than anybody else.  That goes over like a lead balloon. -- Blackbuck

Rolling Stones -- I bet you didn't realize what a careful application of moss could
do to you! -- Stormbird

Locked Room -- Ah, but I took a lock-picking course! -- Soft Rock

The mini-overs are often a shock, and this is one of the times they are.  I hadn't
really been paying attention, but there it is in black and white:  Ramshorn, the
senior member of the team, has NO ratings.  Of course, he is really, really
stupid.... -- Jorja

Crazed Canary -- We were thinking of the custom of calling female singers in dance
halls and night clubs "canaries."  Been reading too much of the wrong kind of
fiction, no doubt. -- the Cardow Hunters
