                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail TOBIR!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed for your 
deeds.  It seems the training can make the difference, as THE DEATH SQUAD is pushed 
out of top team by F WORDS, who came from 2nd with a 4-1-2 this turn.  And let's see, 
FILIBUSTER fought ARRNOLD and gained 13 points and contributed to F WORDS' 4-1-2.  
BIGFOOTS has lost to KUNG-FU MASTER, falling 16 points, while helping make THE 
DOGHOUSE a 1-4-0 turn.  CLOWN challenged for the Duelmastership this turn, attempting 
to dethrone THE DEATH SQUAD's warrior.  And all eyes were on CLOWN this turn as he 
ascended to the throne of Duelmaster.  TOBIR has a new victor!  Can someone confirm a 
rumor for me?  I hear the top team makes their losing fighters do dishes at The 
Deeproot Inn until they win.  Maybe?   
     The crowd's roar, the smell of iron and leather, mixed with sweat, what more 
could a warrior ask of life?  Well, besides that.  THE DEATH SQUAD has cause to stand 
tall, as they were TOBIR's most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a team 
to beat.  And avoiding THE DEATH SQUAD more than any other team we find F WORDS.  
TOBIR, are we going to accept, or respect this sort of thing?  Well, sports fans, 
take notice that ARRNOLD from ACTION HEROS was TOBIR's most challenged warrior this 
turn.  CRACK BABY of THE DEATH SQUAD had better have a good reason for challenging 
down 8 points in a challenge which it won.  I thought CRACK BABY showed great skill 
and promise when it beat STALLONE.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  Is it really true that TOBIR has more dishwashers per capita that 
fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...   
     Thought for the day, a new sword shines bright, but the notched sword sings the 
sweetest.  It's been nice chatting with you, until we meet again, keep your swords 
sharp and your hammers heavy.  Until you see my quill in TOBIR again, farewell-- 
Alarond the Scribe

Centauri -- Bill thanks you, if I cam correctly interpreting his tail wagging and ear
semaphore.  Lasso can just suck it up, this kind of thing happens. -- Jorja

Hock -- I tried to bite you on your heel, but apparently you don't have the same
problem as Achilles.  Too bad, it would have been fun. -- The Watch Dog

Fantassin -- Huh, the Watch Dog told me he was watching you because you're a
suspected assassin, but he didn't tell me you are MEAN.  I think Watch has it in for
me. -- Lasso
P.S.  Damned straight it was an "upset struggle."  I was very upset.

Stallone -- I don't know why that human reported that I "viciously" subdued you.  It
should have been "victoriously" subdued, not viciously.  Sometimes humans don't seem
to realize that we Dogs can UNDERSTAND their stupid jokes.  And WE DON'T LIKE THEM.
-- Brown Bear

M. Chardinee is, you know, boring.  He doesn't know how to throw a stick or a ball,
and you wouldn't think that would be HARD, would you? -- Bigfoots
