On Golden Pond, Duelmaster

                                      SPY REPORT

     I can't believe the violence in WILLAF!  I still haven't told Mom I'm writing 
Spyreports.  She'd have a cow!  Well, here we go...  MVP award for ALLIE BARNETT?  
PUNNY AMINALS' proud of her after beating STOGA STEEL and getting 18 points.  Talk 
about yer big time losers!  SARDO GRACKEL got smashed by ELEESIA, and lost 11 points! 
Like MAXIMUM RESULTS' BRUAR is sweating since he got challenged by Duelmaster ON 
GOLDEN POND!  This Duelmaster is like something else!  ON GOLDEN POND stopped BRUAR 
dead in his tracks!  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.  DRAGON'S GUARD was the most avoided team.  Is a 23-12-3 record 
really that scary?  I don't know what GOLDEN GLADIATORS' been doing.  They certainly 
haven't been accepting many fights from DRAGON'S GUARD, that's fer sher.  Can MAXIMUM 
RESULTS' BRUAR be more popular than me?  He was challenged the most, but is that 
really the same?   
     Challenges, revenges, Bloodfeuds.  All WILLAF ever talks about is fighting!  Me, 
I'm more laid back.  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.  I had a fun time, see you later-- Debby Tonte

A 4-0 with one waiting prepped for the tournament?  Well done, Team. -- Midas of
Golden Gladiators

Silly Suit -- Sorry for that.  I am not used to chomping on suits. -- Gold Tooth

Stoga Steel -- I was ON!  It was a good, good day for soaring.  (Well, soaring
for me, soring for you. ...chuckle ...) -- Golden Eagle.

Coyote -- Yes, yes, yes.  Finding the favorite weapon almost always enhances the
number of criticals you produce, hence enhancing warrior performance. -- Midas

On Golden Pond -- Jorja says I should tell you about our "golden pond" type
experience here.  As if!  It wasn't a pond at all, it was the sidewalk and
street, because it had just rained and then the sun came out and reflected off
them.  She said (threatened) that she might send Midas a "scan" of the photo.
She's relentless about that stuff, tell Midas to cut her off quickly! -- Baabra
Lammont

Eleesia -- That's depressing.  Probably because I was so TIRED by the time we
finished, tiredness always encourages depression.  I think I'll go read a good
book; that'll show you! -- Allie Barnett

The Convicted Assassin was rather tasty, actually.  Probably his exotic origins
(he seems to be from Illis).  Too bad the Infirmary staff didn't let me finish
the meal. -- Fangs Ardente

Silence Is Golden -- Cris Croft
P.S.  I wouldn't dare to speak, having lost.

Sad Slacks -- Maybe some vinegar in the rinse water next time you're washed.
Brighten things up. -- Sardo Grackel

Silence Is Golden -- Hissss! -- Fangs Ardente

Stoga Steel -- Ah, skills....  Don't want to overdo that. -- Sardo Grackel
