                                      SPY REPORT

     Oh, hi.  Its just little 'ol Debby Tonte.  Thought I'd check out TALCAMA to see 
what's new.  The guys at SNAG RAMA like really pulled together to get a 3-2-2 this 
turn, moving up by 8.  What was the name of that team who got 4-1-1 this turn for a 
total 256-249-14 you ask?  (Sure)  SEA DOGS' their name, and fighting's their game!  
MVP award for SCURH?  SNAG RAMA's proud of him after beating FROGS FORM THE SKY and 
getting 22 points.  Talk about yer big time losers!  SHEWISH CORSAIR got smashed by 
MICHAEL JORDAN, and lost 9 points!  This Duelmaster is like something else!  LONGSHOT 
stopped MIDNIGHT dead in hers 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.  The warriors of THUNDR + LITENING 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 CENTER FOR OLDS' been avoiding THUNDR + LITENING so much?  Or is 
it just that they're too scared?  Like, is MIDNIGHT popular, or what?  She was 
challenged the most in all of TALCAMA!  She's got a 16-18-0, is that good?  JB BLAH 
must not be a good enough fighter to get in fair fights.  He challenged HOFFA.  12 is 
a big difference.  (Well, that's what they tell me.) I thought JB BLAH showed great 
skill and promise when he defeated HOFFA.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big 
deal!   
     Challenges, revenges, Bloodfeuds.  All TALCAMA ever talks about is fighting!  
Me, I'm more laid back.  I was SO depressed when I heard HEX got killed.  He was just 
a kid, and didn't get a fair chance in TALCAMA, or anything!  What if they had a 
fight and nobody showed up?  I'd be out of a job, that's what!!!   
     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.  Its 
been really albendranius!  Later, guys-- Debby Tonte

Longshot and Doc -- Color me impressed that you invested the time to check (and write
in!) a newsletter.  While you have the advantage of good warriors and intelligent
management, I have the advantage of a complete disregard for tournament timing.  Can
you keep your two active warriors undefeated; can I fare better than 2-3 every turn?
I do appreciate the congratulations and wish you luck on the Isle, Longshot. -- Suave

Abraxis -- No argument about the difficulty level around here.  But for the most
part, we've been living off our reputation for over a year.  It's been much harder
through other seasons.  Stick it out and see what you can do.  -- Suave

Jolly -- Will Bothach be your final contestant here?  Tell Ian and Shawn I said yo.
-- Suave
