                                      SPY REPORT

     Ready for some action-packed adventure, some thrills, chills and spills?  Well 
fergit it, cause this is the Spyreport for ALJAFIR.  MVP award for MAXIMUS?  
HEROESANDFOUNDONES' proud of him after beating NORTH FORK RABBLE and getting 14 
points.  Talk about yer big time losers!  MARSHALL got smashed by OBIDA PANIRI, and 
lost 11 points!  What a putz!  DARK MAGICIAN fights so hard to be Duelmaster, then 
quits fighting and loses the title.  No one said he was a genius...  And I was just 
getting used to the ex-Duelmaster's habit of...(!)  Oh well, welcome HI-JINX.  Aren't 
PROJECT MAYHEM XXX proud.  (Oh, my.) 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.   
     What does a fighter fight for?  I mean, the crowds don't give a hoot if someone 
gets killed.  Not after four more fights.  Like was that some Bloodfeud, or what?  
(ALEXANDER THE GREAT vs. VURZHAL UR, that is.) 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 know how much you like reading this stuff, but I really 
should stop.  I had a fun time, see you later-- Debby Tonte

I am in the process of moving house, and spotlight writing for the next two months
will be very hit-and-miss. -- the Scribe

27 June 2005
ATTENTION ALL YOU ALLIANCE-TYPE PEOPLE:
For the purposes of tourney newsletter alliance listings (when I am able to do them),
you may only be listed in ONE alliance.  In other words, you have to choose!  If you
are a part of Englebert's Alliance and Englebert's Alliance is "part" of Ruthrauf's
Alliance, I will list you EITHER as part of Englebert's Alliance OR as part of
Ruthrauf's Alliance, NOT both.  The default would be the top-level alliance,

Ruthrauf's, in this example.  If you'd rather be listed separately, let me know and I
will do so, but that will be the only listing you get. -- The Saint, keeper of ever-
more-complicated lists

The Company of Brothers (TCB) welcomes two new members to our alliance...Liam the
Goth and Buddy Lee.  We have no doubt that they will prove to be assets to our
alliance and the general dueling community. -- Baphomet, co-founder, T.C.B.
