                                      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, STARBASE 5 had 
to be so embarrassed when they got kicked off #1 spot by GREENWARDENS!  Way to go 
GREENWARDENS!  MVP award for THULE?  DARK CREATION's proud of him after beating 
ZIRCON and getting 20 points.  Talk about yer major upsets!  ZIRCON's match with 
THULE cost him a loss of 13 points!  Was that a tear I saw in LYLYANNA's eye, as she 
took over Duelmastership?  And wasn't BOSS fit to be tied!  Who was the wiseguy that 
said MALCORN's Duelmaster was paying for drinks at Drake's Barbecue?  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.   
     Challenges, revenges, Bloodfeuds.  All MALCORN ever talks about is fighting!  
Me, I'm more laid back.  Hey you guys, don't you think your families would like to 
hear from you?  Write!  (Or have someone write for you.)  
     I really didn't, you know, study when I was a kid.  Who would've guessed I'd be 
a famous Spyreporter?  I know how much you like reading this stuff, but I really 
should stop.  I had a fun time, see you later-- Debby Tonte

Lylyanna -- You turned me into wood chips!  An unpleasant experience, at least for
me. -- Stump

Boss -- Damn, always throwing your weight around. -- Wind Rider
P.S.  And you don't LOOK like you weigh that much.  Huh.

Necropalyse -- Take that, kiddo. -- Redthorn
P.S.  Never scream in the Infirmary, it just excites the beasts.

Hmm, am I supposed to feel hostility to the Mordant Deserter?  It's hard.  If I'd
been in Mordant, I'd've left, too.  Of course, if he had given an oath and then run
out on it, that would be different. -- Agate

A Convicted Thief!  He must be a very bad person.  I'm glad I beat up on him, not
that I normally advocate taking law and retribution into my own or someone else's own
hands, but if there ISN'T any other recourse, well, surely that's different? --
Bristlecone

How will I recognize "normal" if we ever get back to it?  Zeus, I had the choice of
cobbling together an unworthy bit of episode for this newsletter, or taking the time
to do it right, which means "not today."  I chose the second option. -- the Scribe
