                                      SPY REPORT

     Oh, hi.  Its just little 'ol Debby Tonte.  Thought I'd check out WILLAF to see 
what's new.  I don't wanna hurt anybody's feelings or anything, but SHADOWMONGERS 
really goofed with their 0-4-0.  POWER LEGION like really fought hard to move up to 
2nd from 5th.  Way to go!  MVP award for GOLDEN GLOBE?  GOLDEN GLADIATORS' proud of 
him after beating DANGEROUS CRIMINAL and getting 23 points.  Talk about yer major 
upsets!  NIGHTSTALKER's match with HORI BULL cost it a loss of 16 points!  Don't you 
think the Duelmaster is being unfair?  I think SNAKE should let JOHN DERE be 
Duelmaster for a while, without fighting about it.  Who was the wiseguy that said 
WILLAF's Duelmaster was paying for drinks at The Swinging Aardvark?  Don't look at 
me!   
     Look, you guys stick to fighting, all right?  The warriors of GOLDEN GLADIATORS 
must be getting lonely.  They were the most avoided team.  Do you guys know something 
that I don't?  Hhmph!  What kind of warriors are REALLY??  GOLDEN GLADIATORS, an easy 
team to beat if I ever saw one, can't get them to accept an invitation!  Like, is 
SLIDE TO HELL popular, or what?  He was challenged the most in all of WILLAF!  He's 
got a 5-0-0, is that good?  BRUNO PONCE JONES must not be a good enough fighter to 
get in fair fights.  He challenged EVEBRINGER.  15 is a big difference.  (Well, 
that's what they tell me.) I thought BRUNO PONCE JONES showed great skill and promise 
when he overcame EVEBRINGER.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Challenges, revenges, Bloodfeuds.  All WILLAF ever talks about is fighting!  Me, 
I'm more laid back.  What if they had a fight and nobody showed up?  I'd be out of a 
job, that's what!!!   
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I gotta leave.  WILLAF is like such a dump, and you guys smell too much!  
Remember you guys, ease up sometimes!  Chill out!  Later, Debby Tonte

Snake -- I would say congratulations, but you really must not be a Duelmaster since
you have not written a DM Column.  Doppleganger?  BOBbie flunkie?  What are you? --
King Midas (ever so interested)

Black Indekker -- Blackie the pirate, I think Mr. Black and Mr. Decker would be so
proud. -- Midas

Khalhum's Dwarf -- Your mithril may be special, but so is my armor. -- Goldplated

Derron -- You were simply too much BOB for me. -- Heart Of Gold

Slide To Hell -- I have been there and back.  You certainly showed me who's boss. --
Gold Dubloon

Things seem not to be going so well for The Golden Gladiators, of late.  Something
has to change. -- Midas

Midas -- Snow isn't so bad.  It doesn't come dripping through the ceiling.  At least,
not as often. -- Jorja

Moonsinger -- Excellent plan.  I'll hold him down and you commit unspeakable injuries
on him!  And at the end, we'll find a plank and make him walk it. -- Black Indekker
P.S.  Moonsinger's a good name.  Lyrical.

Lightbearer -- Dang!  I swear, I did NOT see you crossing there. -- a remorseful
Tulane Rhoades

Mora -- Poor boy, to have been so CRUELLY misused!  I was devastated by the damage
done to your, ah, social prospects, and I didn't even THINK of the fight at first.
And, of course, there wasn't a second. -- John Dere

Fission -- Just luck, that's all it was. -- Dee Nile
