                                      SPY REPORT

     I was going on vacation, see?  Surf, sun...  But what do those bums say?  "Hit 
the road, Debby Tonte.  TOBIR needs a spyreport."  Oh, well.  Too bad, F WORDS, but 
THE DEATH SQUAD was just too good to be stopped.  MVP award for EFILNIKUFESIN?  THE 
DEATH SQUAD's proud of him after beating BOND and getting 25 points.  Talk about yer 
big time losers!  PENRICH got smashed by BILL BITEMORE, and lost 17 points!  Don't 
you think the Duelmaster is being unfair?  I think TIPPI TURTLE should let BROWN BEAR 
be Duelmaster for a while, without fighting about it.  Who was the wiseguy that said 
TOBIR's Duelmaster was paying for drinks at The Victory Tavern?  Don't look at me!   
     So just why would someone becomes a warrior anyway?  It can't be for these 
really neat Spyreports can it?  THE DEATH SQUAD was the most avoided team.  Is a 
565-429-30 record really that scary?  Is there some deep dark secret why F WORDS' 
been avoiding THE DEATH SQUAD so much?  Or is it just that they're too scared?  Like, 
is LASSO popular, or what?  He was challenged the most in all of TOBIR!  He's got a 
2-8-0, is that good?  FILIBUSTER must not be a good enough fighter to get in fair 
fights.  He challenged LASSO.  9 is a big difference.  (Well, that's what they tell 
me.) I thought FILIBUSTER showed great skill and promise when he bested LASSO.  All 
right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     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.  BOND, of 
OTAGO HIGHLANDERS had a 7-3-0 when he got bumped off by EFILNIKUFESIN.  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 gotta leave.  TOBIR is like such a dump, and you guys smell 
too much!  Remember you guys, ease up sometimes!  Chill out!  Later, Debby Tonte

All -- I am getting together as many Duelmaster players as possible to play in a game
of Hyborian War as a change of pace.  We already have 17 players that are interested
and we are trying to get as many as possible involved before I submit the list to
RSI.  I am collecting the names and top 3 kingdoms that the players are interested in

and submitting it myself so we can all play in the same game.  If you are interested
PM me in the DuelII Forums at Tripwire or email me at azaer123@comcast.net. --

It's that dumb Noble Assassin again.  Dogs!  I really can't stand that guy. -- Bill

about bringing me a good bone. -- Brown Bear

The Kung-Fu Master tried to kick me, so... I bit his foot.  Hey, it was right there
in my face, why NOT bite it? -- Bigfoots

Jcvd -- I watched you closely, and when I saw a chance to get my jaws on you, I did
it.  That's my job. -- The Watch Dog

We salute the tourney participants.  Looking not all that bad, Frisky. -- Jorja and
