                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, warriors of ZORPUNT!  Once again I've been called out of retirement 
for my abilities and insights into Spyreporting.  What's with BUBBA JONES?  He 
actually beat ZORPUNT's MORDANT DESERTER, and walked away with 10 more points from 
the fight.  Try as she might, LIMPETTE wasn't good enough at persuading GREAT WHITE 
SHARK to step down from the Duelmaster's throne...  I suppose you want to hear some 
rumors and dirty gossip about your fellow fighters?  Tough!   
     If at first you don't succeed, avoid.  That'll get you in the Spyreports.  The 
most avoided team was WATER DECK.  The bums at AUSSIE KILLERS couldn't face the 
challenges from WATER DECK!  No excuse for that!   
     Warriors of ZORPUNT unite.  You have only your games to lose!  Death is no 
stranger to a warrior.  KRILL CAVALRY's LIMPETTE led a good life before leaving 
ZORPUNT.  Many would be proud to leave behind a 14-8-0.  Is it my imagination, or are 
fighters getting younger every day?  To die so young, so gloriously!   
     Many other cities have retirement homes for aged warriors.  Any plans here?  All 
work and no play makes Olaf a dull fighter.  Work and play no fighter dull Olaf.  
Olaffighterwork and no play.  I don't want to overstay my welcome...-- Olaf Modeen

Great White Shark -- Ah!  The teeth that bite!  But fortunately, no claws to snatch,
which would compound the problem. -- Pine Leaf

It just seems WRONG that the Venomous Concubine, a nasty woman if I ever saw one and
DISTINCTLY sinister, should be right-handed. -- Limpette
P.S.  Oh, she was DEXTROUS enough....

Dale -- I've got a great idea for you!  How about if you go rescue a ranger?  You
might do better at it. -- Joe Poole

Cult Member?  Pah. -- Trina Lark

And a double Pah to the Mordant Deserter. -- Bubba Jones

Bubba -- But you lost! -- Trina

All the more reason for a double Pah.  So, Pah Pah! to the Mordant Deserter. -- Bubba
Jones

THawk -- Don't go away!  The Great White Shark has discovered amazing things, but I'm
having trouble translating his wiggles and fin-flips. -- the Scribe

On Jhans turn number 476 (due on Feb. 16, 2005) the Second Annual kLk St. Valentine's
Massacre Kill Contest will begin.  The rules are simple; the team with the most kills
on the last turn wins.  Last year's winner was Shocking Toad.  Can he repeat?  Could
DOOMcorps crush all challengers?  Will the kLk prevail?  Or will you be the
independent manager to show that alliances aren't all that?  Come on to Jhans and
let's find out!
     Prizes are:  1st.  Renaming of a Dark Arena monster and five roll-up
                        certificates or $25.00 deposited in your account.
                  2nd.  Renaming of a Stand-In monster.
     Come on and celebrate the Delarquan way!
