                                      SPY REPORT

     Ready for some action-packed adventure, some thrills, chills and spills?  Well 
fergit it, cause this is the Spyreport for TALCAMA.  RUN AND HYDE like really fought 
hard to move up to 10th from 17th.  Way to go!  What was the name of that team who 
got 4-1-0 this turn for a total 441-771-27 you ask?  (Sure)  ARROGANCE's their name, 
and fighting's their game!  MVP award for ADAM?  SHEPHERDS' proud of him after 
beating GOLDEN BARB and getting 22 points.  Talk about yer big time losers!  THE 
CLOSER got smashed by ENTEK, and lost 17 points!  Oh, wow, like the Duelmaster must 
be the most popular guy in all TALCAMA.  He got the most challenges.  (But what about 
proposals?) THE PHILANDERER thinks his 17-12-1 and studly character is good enough to 
face up to the Duelmaster.  Any bets?  Was that a tear I saw in THE PHILANDERER's 
eye, as he took over Duelmastership?  And wasn't VOLITAN LIONFISH fit to be tied!  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.  The warriors of SHEPHERDS 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 SHEPHERDS' been avoiding SHEPHERDS so much?  Or is it just that they're 
too scared?  Speaking of challenging 26 points above did you hear about THE VOYEUR of 
IMPURE THOUGHTS vs. STAR WARS: KOTOR's MISSION VAO?  (And how was that intro!) THE 
VOYEUR lost to MISSION VAO, but he got 3 points.  MISSION VAO won, and got 3 points.  
I don't get it.  Some fights are really unfair.  How do you think LHI feels about 
being challenged by JB BLAH, 19 points above him?  Is this how CENTER FOR OLDS 
advances, by having their members (JB BLAH) fight people that are really below them 
(LHI)?   
     What does a fighter fight for?  I mean, the crowds don't give a hoot if someone 
gets killed.  Not after four more fights.  Everyone has problems, but why did 
WIZARDGUARD send FUNNYMAN to the Dark Arena?  He had a 7-1-0, and I thought he looked 
neat on the sands...  Like was that some Bloodfeud, or what?  (GAD vs. ZEBRA SOLE, 
that is.) What if they had a fight and nobody showed up?  I'd be out of a job, that's 
what!!!   
     I really didn't, you know, study when I was a kid.  Who would've guessed I'd be 
a famous Spyreporter?  I'm getting tired of writing this stuff, so I'm calling it 
quits.  Remember you guys, ease up sometimes!  Chill out!  Later, Debby Tonte

     HDFA Mission Statement
     "Show me the money!"
     This is the battle cry of a newly formed collection of like-minded individuals:
The High Dolla' Free Agent$.  We are not a tough guy alliance:  No...we offer no
battle without reward.  We search for victory and the prizes and accolades that
follow.  We are motivated by winning and will freely use whatever means necessary to
obtain our currency.  No stuffy rules, no mandates, no constitutions, no leaders,
only a few objectives:
     1) Win as often as possible
     2) Celebrate freely and revel in your victories; the more meaningless the
victory the more we celebrate.  Highsiding and chest thumping are encouraged.
Ostentatious endzone celebrations with prop usage are encouraged, regardless of
fines, penalties, suspensions or arrest by local authorities.  It is important to let
your opponent know how great you are; more importantly, you must let your own
alliance mates know how great you are.
     This is a 1-up alliance, let the performance of your fellow Free Agent$ motivate
you.  If a Free Agent wins a TV, win 2; if a Free agent wins a contest, win a more
prestigious one.
     Current members of the HDFA include:  CFH and Abraxis.  Inquires can be directed
