                                      SPY REPORT

     Ready for some action-packed adventure, some thrills, chills and spills?  Well 
fergit it, cause this is the Spyreport for ZUWAYZA.  One team deserves special 
mention 'cause they moved up 1 after going 4-1-0.  Keep it up, THE MAGNIFICENT MAGS!  
MVP award for MODRANECT?  JANUARY's proud of him after beating GHILWEN CROMLOTH and 
getting 21 points.  Was that a tear I saw in MALKAI's eye, as he took over 
Duelmastership?  And wasn't THIMBLE 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.  The warriors of MAN OR BEAST? must be getting lonely.  They were 
the most avoided team.  Do you guys know something that I don't?  I don't know what 
FROM THE SHADOW's been doing.  They certainly haven't been accepting many fights from 
MAN OR BEAST?, that's fer sher.  Can THE MAGNIFICENT MAGS' MAGIC TODAY be more 
popular than me?  He was challenged the most, but is that really the same?  BEAR 
GRYLLS must not be a good enough fighter to get in fair fights.  He challenged MAGIC 
TODAY.  11 is a big difference.  (Well, that's what they tell me.) I thought BEAR 
GRYLLS showed great skill and promise when he was bested by MAGIC TODAY.  All right, 
so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     What does a fighter fight for?  I mean, the crowds don't give a hoot if someone 
gets killed.  Not after four more fights.  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 know how much you like reading this stuff, but I really 
should stop.  Its been really albendranius!  Later, guys-- Debby Tonte

Grizzly Adams -- Was that really necessary?  Were you that annoyed that he made you
fight that long or what? -- Daemonspawn, manager of From The Shadow

Black Maiden -- I thought you had me for a minute there.  I guess it's better to be
lucky than good. -- Yothlothiel

     Best if you can be both.

Shortline -- Good fight my friend, goo luck to you! -- Malkai

Yothlothierl -- Wow, that was rather... unexpected.  Well managed, my friend! --
Black Maiden

Malkai Hit by Train!  Injury Prevents Ascension to Duelmaster!  Maybe Next Time, says
Dragon Junkie

Bear Grylls -- Man or beast is, indeed, the question.  How can I properly deal with
someone so ill-defined?  Magic is a precise science. -- Magic Today
P.S.  The possibility of having you grilled appeals to me.

Ghilwen Cromloth -- The denizens of the shadows are no more dire than those of the
wilder parts of Missouri.  Trust me on this, I know whereof I speak. -- Missouri
Wildlife

Attempt to Muzzle the Press with a Thimble!  Cunning Plot Exposed!  What Next?  Story

Free Parking -- And you get what you pay for.  Is it my fault if a lot of
tumbleweeds, an introduced nuisance, to be sure, chose to "park" on your site? --
Desert Plants

Sailinniel -- The moon was full--well, at the time of our fight, it was new, though
it's full NOW--and you made good use of the favorable configuration.  Darn it. --
