                                      SPY REPORT

     Oh, hi.  Its just little 'ol Debby Tonte.  Thought I'd check out ALJAFIR to see 
what's new.  Like, STEEL WOLVES had to be so embarrassed when they got kicked off #1 
spot by MIDDLE WAY!  Way to go MIDDLE WAY!  One team deserves special mention 'cause 
they moved up 2 after going 3-1-0.  Keep it up, AIM 4 ISLE HAMMERZ!  MVP award for 
VIOLET ORC?  HEROESANDFOUNDONES' proud of him after beating KANE and getting 16 
points.  Talk about yer major upsets!  KANE's match with VIOLET ORC cost him a loss 
of 13 points!  This Duelmaster is like something else!  ATTILA THE HUN stopped DROGBA 
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.  HEROESANDFOUNDONES was ALJAFIR's most avoided team.  Is there some 
award for that?  Is there some deep dark secret why STEEL WOLVES' been avoiding 
HEROESANDFOUNDONES so much?  Or is it just that they're too scared?  Can AIM 4 ISLE 
HAMMERZ's AIM REDUCE HAMMER be more popular than me?  He was challenged the most, but 
is that really the same?   
     Challenges, revenges, Bloodfeuds.  All ALJAFIR ever talks about is fighting!  
Me, I'm more laid back.  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 know how much you like reading this stuff, but I really 
should stop.  Its been really albendranius!  Later, guys-- Debby Tonte

Attila the Hun -- As in..."HUN-nybunch"? -- Vinn Wulf, living recklessly
P.S.  Hey, my life has been dull lately.

Aim Better Hammer -- That sounds like...good advice for you. -- Stelra Tirins
P.S.  Oops, I see that you're Aim BITTER Hammer instead.  Well, tough.  Better is
better than bitter.

Shadow -- (crossly)  EVERYTHING's shadows if the sun isn't shining.  Well, I suppose
TECHNICALLY it's shining right now, but not HERE.  Darn clouds. -- Tamarin Mellirn
P.S.  If you have anything to do with the clouds, you need to work on your technique.
Either no clouds, or let 'em rain.

I didn't mean to take so long with the Convicted Thief, but he had some amusing
stories to tell. -- Grishort Hurm

Somehow I never expected to see a dwarf begging.  Or to see a beggar being a dwarf,
or whatever the proper phrasing is.  But then, I never expected to be a dwarf myself,
either. -- Xaviora Yohl

Xaviora Yohl -- As a fellow dwarf, I expect you to provide me with the cost of a
meal.  We dwarves must stick together here. -- Kellechi, Persistent Beggar
P.S.  Of course that isn't my clan name!  I would not dishonor my brothers by using
it in this context!

Grishort Hurm -- Didn't anyone ever tell you not to tease a cat?  I'm annoyed. --
Partiss, Convicted Thief
P.S.  I was just trying to assemble enough money to get home.

Yellow Orc -- Eat steel, karnhorn. -- Terregolis, Dangerous Criminal, NOT a dwarf
P.S.  Why the Commission has this THING about beards I can't imagine.

Kane -- Well, you're a fine figure of a man, aren't you?  Perhaps we should get
together privately, hmm? -- Lenislichi of Venjek, so-called Venomous Concubine

9 July 2007
I have not been receiving my physical turns in a reliable manner lately.  If there
are diplos with the turns that go missing, they're gone for good.  So if you send me
a diplo and do not see an acknowledgement of receipt in the personals, know that I
have not gotten it (yet).  If you have email, contact me at Livia AT reality DOT com.
If you don't have email, keep trying with the diplos.  We are working on this
problem. -- the Scribe/Jorja/Leeta
P.S.  If you email me, put "Re DM" on the subject line.
