                                      SPY REPORT

     Oh, hi.  Its just little 'ol Debby Tonte.  Thought I'd check out MALCORN to see 
what's new.  Like, TRIPLE CROWN had to be so embarrassed when they got kicked off #1 
spot by DARK CREATION!  Way to go DARK CREATION!  MVP award for SLAYVER?  DARK 
CREATION's proud of him after beating CAPTURED ORC and getting 18 points.  Talk about 
yer big time losers!  PUTRID CORPSE got smashed by INDEMOS, and lost 14 points!  
Don't you think the Duelmaster is being unfair?  I think BLACKWIND should let WOODEN 
ARROW be Duelmaster for a while, without fighting about it.  Who was the wiseguy that 
said MALCORN's Duelmaster was paying for drinks at The Victory Tavern?  Don't look at 
me!   
     I gotta admit I haven't been in "deep con caves" with any spies.  Really, I just 
wing this stuff.  TRIPLE CROWN was MALCORN's most avoided team.  Is there some award 
for that?  Hhmph!  What kind of warriors are DARK CREATION?  TRIPLE CROWN, an easy 
team to beat if I ever saw one, can't get them to accept an invitation!  Like, is 
FOREVER popular, or what?  He was challenged the most in all of MALCORN!  He's got a 
11-9-0, is that good?  For sure, I was holding my breath when I found out BOXXER 
challenged ARKAIK SLAUTER.  After all, haven't STARBASE 5 and DARK CREATION had a 
long standing duel in MALCORN?  It wasn't a spectacular fight, or anything, but 
ARKAIK SLAUTER wants me to write about it since he lost to BOXXER.  Satisfied?   
     What does a fighter fight for?  I mean, the crowds don't give a hoot if someone 
gets killed.  Not after four more fights.  What if they had a fight and nobody showed 
up?  I'd be out of a job, that's what!!!   
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I know how much you like reading this stuff, but I really should stop.  I had 
a fun time, see you later-- Debby Tonte

Ghosts of Greenwardens -- You guys die too easily!  For what it's worth, I wasn't
even trying.  From your records, I thought you both should have been a more
formidable opponent. -- Blackwind
P.S.  Tell Greengrove to stop shakin, I'm not after him.

Lil E. Tee -- Well done, old friend!  You clearly are the more skilled.  It's been
fun having you around.  Congrats on your invite!  Good luck to ya! -- Mortikhan

Putrid Corpse -- Good thing I sharpened my blade, or else I wouldn't have been able
to cut through that weapon of yours. -- Forever

Nya -- O.k., you win, I can't keep going to the infirmary like this anymore. --
Indemos

Go and go -- Yea, when it was just me and Charismatic, it seemed like I lived up to
my name.  But then you show up and go and go and go and go.... -- Forever

Charismatic -- Wait 'til I get some more skills, so that I can deal with you more
properly.  Hopefully that "two" will be the last that you ever contribute. --
Blackwind

Blackwind -- You are a seriously nasty dude!  Are you trying to exterminate our team?
-- Ghost of Oakleaf

Xane Reaver -- This was not a good move on your part. -- Greengrove

Javor -- Do you suppose the handicapper was bribed to match us again?  Or just not
paying attention? -- Wooden Arrow

Charismatic -- A word of advice from an old and departing friend:  Don't stand in a
black wind. -- Ghost of Oakleaf

I am in the process of moving house, and spotlight writing for the next two months
will be very hit-and-miss. -- the Scribe

ATTENTION ALL YOU ALLIANCE-TYPE PEOPLE:
For the purposes of tourney newsletter alliance listings (when I am able to do them),
you may only be listed in ONE alliance.  In other words, you have to choose!  If you
are a part of Englebert's Alliance and Englebert's Alliance is "part" of Ruthrauf's
Alliance, I will list you EITHER as part of Englebert's Alliance OR as part of
Ruthrauf's Alliance, NOT both.  The default would be the top-level alliance,
Ruthrauf's, in this example.  If you'd rather be listed separately, let me know and I
will do so, but that will be the only listing you get. -- The Saint, keeper of ever-
more-complicated lists

29 Jun 2005
The Company of Brothers (TCB) welcomes two new members to our alliance...Liam the
Goth and Buddy Lee.  We have no doubt that they will prove to be assets to our
alliance and the general dueling community. -- Baphomet, co-founder, T.C.B.
