                                      SPY REPORT

     Ready for some action-packed adventure, some thrills, chills and spills?  Well 
fergit it, cause this is the Spyreport for ALJAFIR.  Too bad, A UNIT, but MIDDLE WAY 
was just too good to be stopped.  The guys at YORK'S ARCADE like really pulled 
together to get a 3-2-1 this turn, moving up by 3.  Cut this out and put it in your 
scrapbooks, MIDDLE WAY!  'Cause they got 4-1-0 and moved up to 1st!  MVP award for 
ASCENDANT?  TRIUMPH OF ANGELS' proud of him after beating A-3 and getting 16 points.  
Talk about yer big time losers!  A-3 got smashed by ASCENDANT, and lost 13 points!  
Like, GABOGOOL must be pretty gutsy!  He challenged the Duelmaster from MIDDLE WAY.  
Does this guy have a death wish or what!  This Duelmaster is like something else!  
DEBRA ELSITH stopped GABOGOOL dead in his tracks!  Who was the wiseguy that said 
ALJAFIR's Duelmaster was paying for drinks at The Vile Vizier?  Don't look at me!   
     Look, you guys stick to fighting, all right?  The warriors of A UNIT must be 
getting lonely.  They were the most avoided team.  Do you guys know something that I 
don't?  Is there some deep dark secret why TRIUMPH OF ANGELS' been avoiding A UNIT so 
much?  Or is it just that they're too scared?  Can YORK'S ARCADE's JOUST be more 
popular than me?  He was challenged the most, but is that really the same?  People 
were asking me did A-2 REALLY challenge ZAXXON?  (all right, maybe they didn't, but 
it sounded good!) It wasn't a spectacular fight, or anything, but ZAXXON wants me to 
write about it since he killed A-2.  Satisfied?   
     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 gotta leave.  ALJAFIR is like such a dump, and you guys 
smell too much!  Remember you guys, ease up sometimes!  Chill out!  Later, Debby 
Tonte

Padre -- It happens.  And I never did figure out how to grip a grudge in order to
hold onto it.  I had no deep emotional attachment to Tobbit, or to anyone else on
this team, to be honest.  Although... I may develop a deep emotional DIS-attachment
to his replacement!  "Ultro Pinky"?  I have NO CLUE where that name came from, and I
was the one who filled out his paperwork! -- Jorja

Four-one!  Even though three of the wins were over standbys, this is GOOD.  We like
it.  Well, I get tired of having to do ALL the arena promo work, what with being
duelmaster, chartered recognition leader, popularity leader, AND favorite, but... one
of life's burdens which I am strong enough to bear.  Although, now that I think about
it, maybe I should graduate and let someone else deal with this stuff. -- Debra
Elsith
P.S.  This new team member... kinda strange....  FIVE skills on his frist fight?  Is
he allowed to DO that?
