                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail TOBIR!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed for your 
deeds.  And let's see, WHITE FANG fought LITTLE DEVIL and gained 28 points and 
contributed to THE DOGHOUSE's 3-2-0.  LITTLE DEVIL has lost to WHITE FANG, falling 15 
points, while helping make PLAYPEN a 1-4-0 turn.  This turn MITOCHONDRIAC challenged 
BINKIE in what was TOBIR's Title bout.  Defending hers title for another turn, 
MITOCHONDRIAC kept PLAYPEN's warrior, BINKIE, from claiming the throne.  By the way, 
was that our Duelmaster that I saw last night, cramped under the table at The 
Deeproot Inn?   
     The crowd's roar, the smell of iron and leather, mixed with sweat, what more 
could a warrior ask of life?  Well, besides that.  PLAYPEN has cause to stand tall, 
as they were TOBIR's most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a team to 
beat.  And guess who avoided PLAYPEN stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was BIO 
WARFARE.  Anyone surprised?  Well, sports fans, take notice that GERBENT from THE 
DOGHOUSE was TOBIR's most challenged warrior this turn.  Building dreams on hope, 
TIPPI TURTLE challenged up 26 points this turn to take on GOLGI APPARATUS from BIO 
WARFARE stable.  And whaddya know, TIPPI TURTLE beat GOLGI APPARATUS, and the 
fighters of THE DEATH SQUAD were last seen lifting frothy pints of ale in honor of 
TIPPI TURTLE's 20 point gain.   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  A brave warrior does not carry a red shield, he has nothing to cover or 
hide when the fight is over.  Consider well.   
     Remember, blood on the purple robe does not change it from a purple robe.  Dare 
to fight bravely.  Well, I'm burning daylight here in TOBIR and I've a long road 
ahead of me.  Happy Trails.  Until you see my quill in TOBIR again, farewell-- 
Alarond the Scribe

Golgi Apparatus -- Well, darn.  Heck.  Etc.  I should have known, I guess I really
DID know, the minute I yelled that I wouldn't give up, well, the fight was lost for
me.  It always works that way. -- Woofer
P.S.  But I don't have to like it!

Tippi Turtle -- What do you WEIGH, huh?  Two tons?  More?  You tipped over onto my
foot, and it was like I was nailed to the floor!  I'll have to have surgery for bone
chips and MONTHS of therapy before I can use that foot naturally again. -- Chichi-
Hooey

Encloplasmic -- That's probably a very dangerous thing, likely to cause tooth decay
and spongey gums, isn't it?  By rights, I should have bit the HECK out of you, but
somehow I just couldn't. -- White Fang
P.S.  Possibly it was all those injuries you inflicted before I got my act together
that prevented me from biting you off at the pass.  I wouldn't be surprised.

Spongebob -- But you're welcome to join me in the said aforementioned bathtub.  I
like to have a spongebob along to scrub with.  Come any time. -- Gerbent

Binkie -- It's the (shudder) pink.  I'm terribly allergic to pink, and then you come
out with it all OVER, and I just can't bring myself to come close enough to hit you.
-- Andillia
P.S.  And I'm too unnerved by it to defend myself properly, either.  Or too, I'm not
sure which.

     The Dark Knights of the Desolate Empire want to announce the joining of a new
member who cherishes the same ideals, respect and loyalty that we hold dear.
     From this day forward let all know that Blackstorm is now a Dark Knight of the
Desolate Empire Alliance.  With him as our chosen brother, our alliance only becomes
stronger.  Let all his foes become ours, and ours his.  May all our enemies' blood
flow freely and give NO quarter in war.
     This is also a warning to any cowards, bullies, etc....  If you play with fire,
you WILL get burnt!!!

To those involved, no, I have not abandoned your stories.  But I've been letting them
drift, and that has to stop, so I am taking the time to make sure that I know where
they are going, more than just "what happens next" dreamed up on the fly, before
resuming work on them.  No new stories will be started until at least one of the old
ones has concluded, for the same reason:  quantity can't substitute for quality.
Your patience in this matter is appreciated. -- the Scribe
