                                      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 SALARA LORMIN?  
MIDDLE WAY's proud of her after beating CONVICTED ASSASSIN and getting 18 points.  
Was that a tear I saw in ZALMAN ARVO's eye, as he took over Duelmastership?  And 
wasn't GERMANICUS fit to be tied!  I hear the top team insists all their warriors get 
nine hours sleep.  They want photogenic fighters for PR photos.   
     I gotta admit I haven't been in "deep con caves" with any spies.  Really, I just 
wing this stuff.  MIDDLE WAY was ALJAFIR's most avoided team.  Is there some award 
for that?  Hhmph!  What kind of warriors are FIELDS OF ELYSIUM?  MIDDLE WAY, an easy 
team to beat if I ever saw one, can't get them to accept an invitation!   
     What does a fighter fight for?  I mean, the crowds don't give a hoot if someone 
gets killed.  Not after four more fights.  Pinch me, I must be dreaming!!!  DA KILLER 
returns from the Dark Arena, maybe a "little upset" at his DEATH INCARNATE 
teammates...  Hey you guys, don't you think your families would like to hear from 
you?  Write!  (Or have someone write for you.)  
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I know how much you like reading this stuff, but I really should stop.  I had 
a fun time, see you later-- Debby Tonte

Vlad the Impaler -- Oops!  Gotta love those "underdog wins" fights, don't you?  For
one thing, it drives the bookies nuts. -- Zalman Arvo

Theodosius -- Well, ouch.  I do like a good student who loses. -- Ursila vine

Tiberius -- Somehow I felt like a whole river had fallen on me.  Must be the season,
the flood warnings are coming out already. -- Grishort Hurm

Ah, the thrill of meeting, once again, the Ambitious Guard.  But he's always there
when needed, so I can't complain. -- Yarek Zurn
P.S.  Well, I could complain, but I won't.

And having defeated the Dangerous Criminal this time, I won't complain, either. --
