                                      SPY REPORT

     Ready for some action-packed adventure, some thrills, chills and spills?  Well 
fergit it, cause this is the Spyreport for MALCORN.  MVP award for SUNDOG?  
GREENWARDENS' proud of him after beating CAPTURED ORC and getting 10 points.  This 
Duelmaster is like something else!  BOWEN stopped SOURWOOD dead in his tracks!  I 
hear the top team insists all their warriors get nine hours sleep.  They want 
photogenic fighters for PR photos.   
     So just why would someone becomes a warrior anyway?  It can't be for these 
really neat Spyreports can it?  SERPENTS' HOLD was MALCORN's most avoided team.  Is 
there some award for that?  I don't know what THE LIVING DEAD's been doing.  They 
certainly haven't been accepting many fights from SERPENTS' HOLD, that's fer sher.   
     Man, all these warriors dying and killing each other!  Don't you guys ever give 
it a break?  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'm getting tired of writing this stuff, so I'm calling it 
quits.  Remember you guys, ease up sometimes!  Chill out!  Later, Debby Tonte

Tourney report.  Right.  Salutations to participants.  Check.  Special notices, not
today.  Okay:  We salute the tourney participants. -- Jorja and the Greenwardens

Steve -- I'm not feeling friendly today, okay?  Blame it on the weather.  It SNEW.
Gods. -- Sourwood

Shank -- Embarrassing, but not surprising. -- Honeysuckle
P.S.  You do realize that if, for some weird reason, Jorja were to turn my strategy
over to another manager, I might give you quite a shock.

We dislike Karnhorn spies.  Nothing (much) against Karnhorns generally, but spies...
no. -- Sundog and Golden Stairs

Revenant -- Consider it... a free shower?  They do say that cold showers are good for
that "living dead" feeling that comes on the morning after the night before. --
