                                      SPY REPORT

     I can't believe the violence in ZUWAYZA!  I still haven't told Mom I'm writing 
Spyreports.  She'd have a cow!  Well, here we go...  Like, FUNKY FOLK had to be so 
embarrassed when they got kicked off #1 spot by THE MAGNIFICENT MAGS!  Way to go THE 
MAGNIFICENT MAGS!  MVP award for HELENA?  VALAMOND'S CREW's proud of her after 
beating COOKING LITE and getting 20 points.  What a putz!  JILL OPPY fights so hard 
to be Duelmaster, then quits fighting and loses the title.  No one said she was a 
genius...  And I was just getting used to the ex-Duelmaster's habit of...(!)  Oh 
well, welcome MODERN MATURITY.  Aren't THE MAGNIFICENT MAGS proud.  (Oh, my.) 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.  JAGUAR WARRIORS was the most avoided team.  Is a 305-328-23 record 
really that scary?  Is there some deep dark secret why VALAMOND'S CREW's been 
avoiding JAGUAR WARRIORS so much?  Or is it just that they're too scared?   
     Man, all these warriors dying and killing each other!  Don't you guys ever give 
it a break?  Fight, fight, fight.  Is that all you guys can do?   
     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.  ZUWAYZA is like such a dump, and you guys 
smell too much!  I had a fun time, see you later-- Debby Tonte

Khalhums Dwarf.  Hmm.  An excellent teacher, but...really, it's hard to think of
such a little fellow as truly mature, even with the beard. -- Modern Maturity

Cary Yon -- You did that on purpose, you unspeakably insolent wench! -- Sports Ill.

But I have nothing against orcs! -- Guy
P.S.  Very macho, orcs.

The Userous Merchant tried to sell me a used carriage and I can tell you, that thing
is a piece of junk. -- Hot Rod

I say nothing of embezzlement, finances are not my concern.  But he took a pint of
cream out of the coldhouse, and I had PLANS for that cream. -- Cooking Lite

Ed. -- Well, okay, I concede you the cat. -- Sports Ill.

     Well you should! -- Ed., having no clue what the previous conversation covered

Ed. -- Not necessarily.  There are other things in lemon pepper than just lemon and
pepper, after all. -- Cooking Lite
P.S.  And sometimes things that shouldn't be there, of course.

     Things which are wholly unneeded, in my opinion. -- Ed.

Ed. -- Who, me? -- Sports Ill.

     Yes, you. -- Ed.

To all those lookin' for some easy pickins:  I, Elfwine, manager of The Shallowship,
the most feared team in all of Jhelum, invite all who seek wide open spaces for pubs
and other such establishments of limited debauchery, to visit this deserted city and
help me clear up some of the dust.  I'm just about ready to have my guys face off
against each other to get some new action.  Guess I'd better join a tournament or
something...hmmmm, there's a thought.
