                                      SPY REPORT

     I can't believe the violence in MALCORN!  I still haven't told Mom I'm writing 
Spyreports.  She'd have a cow!  Well, here we go...  Like, BLOODSWORN had to be so 
embarrassed when they got kicked off #1 spot by DARK CREATION!  Way to go DARK 
CREATION!  MVP award for BET TWICE?  TRIPLE CROWN's proud of him after beating 
AVISHRA and getting 23 points.  Talk about yer big time losers!  ANGELTEAR got 
smashed by WENDIGO, and lost 16 points!  The Duelmaster isn't going to stop just 
cause he's Number One!  JESSALIN knows this.  She was challenged by the Duelmaster.  
And I was just getting used to the ex-Duelmaster's habit of...(!)  Oh well, welcome 
JESSALIN.  Aren't GREENWARDENS proud.  (Oh, my.) Is the Duelmaster really being a 
real snob to his teammates?  Don't ask me!   
     I gotta admit I haven't been in "deep con caves" with any spies.  Really, I just 
wing this stuff.  BLOODSWORN was MALCORN's most avoided team.  Is there some award 
for that?  Hhmph!  What kind of warriors are DARK CREATION?  BLOODSWORN, an easy team 
to beat if I ever saw one, can't get them to accept an invitation!  Like, is JESSALIN 
popular, or what?  She was challenged the most in all of MALCORN!  She's got a 
22-23-0, is that good?  VITAE must not be a good enough fighter to get in fair 
fights.  He challenged MOSSROCK.  14 is a big difference.  (Well, that's what they 
tell me.) I thought VITAE showed great skill and promise when he subdued MOSSROCK.  
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?  D'ya think BET TWICE is feeling guilty for killing BLOODSWORN's AVISHRA, 
a mere boy?  Naah, I doubt it.  Fight, fight, fight.  Is that all you guys can do?   
     I really didn't, you know, study when I was a kid.  Who would've guessed I'd be 
a famous Spyreporter?  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

Zues -- Congratulations on your recent 5 and 0.  "Beware the onslaught of Starbase
5." -- H.P. Lovecraft West

Jessalin -- Uuurrgghh...pphhbbbtt...ugghh...pphhbbbttdd. -- Somnambulant

Jessalin -- Somnambulant doesn't want to fight you anymore.  I've been trying to
teach him some tricks to beat you, but it's like training a rock. -- Homunculus

Grumble, grumble...Hate Dwarves...grumble, grumble. -- Azazel

Angeltear -- I almost had you.  Well, maybe not almost, but that worked a little
better than even I had anticipated. -- Wendigo

Somnambulant -- For a sleepwalker, you're mean!  Good work.  I wish *I* could be that
nasty in my sleep! -- Patterson Pine

Vitae -- Oops!  Well... they do say that to one-shot a man there is, um, a fight-
ender.  Darned if I know why I hit there, I wasn't targeting that area. -- Jessalin

Angeltear -- I'll say!  I "fight" like that is enough to make any angel weep. --
Mossrock
P.S.  Still, for those skills, I'll TAKE the loss.

Bet Twice -- But be careful what you bet on, eh? -- Redbird

Pie Eyed Piper -- Great name! -- Wind Rider
P.S.  Now I just have to see if it's true what they say about drunks being able to
fall down without hurting themselves.

(shrieks of outrage)  WHAT!?!  "Born to scum" with a GREATSWORD!?!  I don't BELIEVE
this! -- Jessalin

20 April 2007
All -- I've been...out of circulation for the last couple of months, and my lists
are not up to date.  If you've announced a manager name, a new alliance, or changed
a manager name or alliance since the middle of February, let me know in the ads, via
diplo, or in an e-mail (Sue (at) solberg-mathews (dot) com).  For that matter, if
you just want to make sure I've got things right, you can always do the same. -- The
Saint, keeper of lists
