                                      SPY REPORT

     I was going on vacation, see?  Surf, sun...  But what do those bums say?  "Hit 
the road, Debby Tonte.  MALCORN needs a spyreport."  Oh, well.  Like, GREENWARDENS 
had to be so embarrassed when they got kicked off #1 spot by STARBASE 5!  Way to go 
STARBASE 5!  MVP award for DEMONIC?  HELL'S LEGIONS' proud of him after beating 
EMBEZZLING SCRIBE and getting 16 points.  This Duelmaster is like something else!  
BET TWICE stopped MOSSROCK dead in his tracks!  I hear the top team insists all their 
warriors get nine hours sleep.  They want photogenic fighters for PR photos.   
     I gotta admit I haven't been in "deep con caves" with any spies.  Really, I just 
wing this stuff.  GREENWARDENS was the most avoided team.  Is a 541-678-13 record 
really that scary?  I don't know what DARK CREATION's been doing.  They certainly 
haven't been accepting many fights from GREENWARDENS, that's fer sher.  Can 
GREENWARDENS' WIND RIDER be more popular than me?  He was challenged the most, but is 
that really the same?  THULE must not be a good enough fighter to get in fair fights. 
He challenged STUMP.  8 is a big difference.  (Well, that's what they tell me.) I 
thought THULE showed great skill and promise when he was defeated by STUMP.  All 
right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Challenges, revenges, Bloodfeuds.  All MALCORN ever talks about is fighting!  
Me, I'm more laid back.  I hear DARK CREATION sent ISITWALENGCENGCE to the Dark 
Arena.  What, is that like not well-lit, or what?  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.  MALCORN is like such a dump, and you guys 
smell too much!  Remember you guys, ease up sometimes!  Chill out!  Later, Debby 
Tonte

Simulacrum -- (crossly)  You can't expect me to make it EASY for you. -- Mossrock
P.S.  But I didn't change anything, either.

Lylyanna -- Ah, you DID.  You sat right down on top of me and laughed and laughed.
Humiliating, that was.  Not that I totally minded having a sweet young thing like you
sitting on me. -- Stump

Isitwalengcengce -- No, it isn't.  What a thing to ask! -- Thistledown

If the Kung-Fu Master would wear armor and carry weapons, things like this wouldn't
happen. -- Redbird
