                                      SPY REPORT

     Ready for some action-packed adventure, some thrills, chills and spills?  Well 
fergit it, cause this is the Spyreport for WILLAF.  Too bad, GOLDEN GLADIATORS, but 
EMOTIONAL PANTS was just too good to be stopped.  MVP award for SNAKE BITE?  SERPENTS 
HOLD 114's proud of it after beating DEE NILE and getting 15 points.  Talk about yer 
big time losers!  HORUS MANN got smashed by ANTIVENOM, and lost 15 points!  Our last 
turn's Duelmaster has lost, folks, lost to CONVICTED ASSASSIN, and SAD SLACKS has 
made the way for a new Duelmaster!  LONGING LEGGINGS of EMOTIONAL PANTS takes SAD 
SLACKS' place.  (But seriously, who could ever take the place of SAD SLACKS?  Oh, all 
right.) Who was the wiseguy that said WILLAF's Duelmaster was paying for drinks at 
The Warty Toad?  Don't look at me!   
     AAARRGH!!!  I HATE SPYREPORTING!!!  Sorry.  I just had to say it.  The warriors 
of SERPENTS HOLD 114 must be getting lonely.  They were the most avoided team.  Do 
you guys know something that I don't?  I don't know what GOLDEN GLADIATORS' been 
doing.  They certainly haven't been accepting many fights from SERPENTS HOLD 114, 
that's fer sher.  Can PUNNY AMINALS' HORUS MANN be more popular than me?  He was 
challenged the most, but is that really the same?   
     Man, all these warriors dying and killing each other!  Don't you guys ever give 
it a break?  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'm getting tired of writing this stuff, so I'm calling it 
quits.  I had a fun time, see you later-- Debby Tonte

Congrats to Sad Slacks!  You beat me fair and square and deserve the win and the
Title. -- Gold Locket

Malcorn Insurgent -- Thanks!  I needed the easy win. -- Gold Dubloon

Horus Mann -- It was a good battle.  You didn't want to win a bridge, anyway; did
you? -- Golden Gate Gridge

I am sorry to report that Gold Charm's 1-3 Adepts tournament was despicable.  He did
not win any gold! -- Midas

Goldplated -- There's a lot of that going around. -- Dee Nile

Our congratulations to Golden Gate Bridge. -- Jorja and the Punny Animals

And good riddance. -- Horus Mann

Oh, all right....

Golden Gate Bridge -- Congratulations, and I hope you find a good place to stand on
the Isle. -- Horus Mann

Longing Leggings -- I was actually longing for the legs involved.  They are
devastating and no two ways about it. -- Billy Jack

Anaconda -- If the early bird gets the worm, then the Ripley Byrd gets the Serpent.
But what am I going to do with it? -- Ripley Byrd

Antivenom -- Really, you were just too MUCH for me. -- John Dere
P.S.  If only you weren't a golem, you could completely overshadow that Longing
Legging wench in the gorgeous gams department.  Truly.

Hopeless Handmedowns -- I deny that you won that fight.  It cannot be. -- Dee Nile

We salute the tourney participants.  A good effort.  If we had more active teams, we
could have a better effort next time. -- Jorja and the Punny Animals

                                   Announcing!

          The No-Tourney ADM arena will be opening for business on the
          first of August of this year!
     It will be ADM Arena #107, making use of that idle installation down at Lirin
Kiv.  If the managers involved in this arena wish to rename it, suggestions will be
entertained through the months of August and September.
