                                      SPY REPORT

     I can't believe the violence in SOLVEN!  I still haven't told Mom I'm writing 
Spyreports.  She'd have a cow!  Well, here we go...  Too bad, KELLUMBO'S KIDS, but 
JUST CHILLIN was just too good to be stopped.  MVP award for BLIZZARD?  JUST 
CHILLIN's proud of him after beating ZOOIE and getting 21 points.  Talk about yer 
major upsets!  JOHN ROBERTS' match with BENITO CHATTE cost him a loss of 15 points!  
Like, SUPPLY SIDE must be pretty gutsy!  He challenged the Duelmaster from MEDIEVAL 
CHAOS.  Does this guy have a death wish or what!  And I was just getting used to the 
ex-Duelmaster's habit of...(!)  Oh well, welcome SUPPLY SIDE.  Aren't THE REPUBLICANS 
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.  The warriors of KELLUMBO'S KIDS must be getting lonely.  They were 
the most avoided team.  Do you guys know something that I don't?  I don't know what 
THE REPUBLICANS' been doing.  They certainly haven't been accepting many fights from 
KELLUMBO'S KIDS, that's fer sher.   
     Man, all these warriors dying and killing each other!  Don't you guys ever give 
it a break?  What a bunch of heartless!  I couldn't believe how many people were 
snickering when BLIZZARD killed ZOOIE.  So he had a 10-35-1, that's no excuse!  Hey 
you guys, don't you think your families would like to hear from you?  Write!  (Or 
have someone write for you.)  
     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

Kellumbo -- I am not sure if your "friendly competition" will prove anything--but
you're on to the extent you agree to one additional condition.  During the
competition you may not downchallenge.  Any wins by downchallenge do not count toward
the total of 25.  Agreed? -- Judge

John Roberts -- You're not a gentleman! -- Kurlouie
P.S.  Or you wouldn't have hit me THERE.
P.P.S.  And you're too tall.  It hurts my neck when I try to look you in the eye.
P.P.P.S.  Actually, you were just too good for me, which I find intensely
embarrassing.

Supply Side -- Kind of you to say so, but even my teaching ability is slipping. --
Zebroe

Biff Streicher -- Well, I just hope somebody biffs YOU "hip and thigh"!  That hurts!
I'm amazed that I didn't fall down. -- Arishtarte
P.S.  I suppose it's your red hair that makes you so fiery?

Brooks and Dunn -- A pair of my better students. -- Zooie

Ed. -- No more tiring than trusting people and having them let you down and then
having to go back and pick up the pieces. -- Kurlouie, chartered paranoid

     I guess you can have your world view and I can have mine.... -- Ed., probably
     not paranoid enough

It is with a proud heart that I announce the newest member of the Desolate Empire
