                                      SPY REPORT

     Ready for some action-packed adventure, some thrills, chills and spills?  Well 
fergit it, cause this is the Spyreport for ZORPUNT.  MVP award for BOX JELLYFISH?  
AUSSIE KILLERS' proud of him after beating TERI LARK and getting 19 points.  Talk 
about yer major upsets!  TERI LARK's match with BOX JELLYFISH cost her a loss of 16 
points!  Was that a tear I saw in TENTACRUEL's eye, as he took over Duelmastership?  
And wasn't KING BROWN SNAKE fit to be tied!  Who was the wiseguy that said ZORPUNT's 
Duelmaster was paying for drinks at The Warty Toad?  Don't look at me!   
     Look, you guys stick to fighting, all right?   
     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'm getting tired of writing this stuff, so I'm calling it 
quits.  I had a fun time, see you later-- Debby Tonte

King Brown Snake -- Brown...kinda dull.  Yes, okay, I already said that.  But you
didn't do anything about it, so I thought maybe you didn't hear.  Just trying to keep
you up to date, and to date, brown is Not In. -- Bill Poole

Veteran Mercenary, whoop-de-doo.  I am so thrilled, I just can't express it. -- Bubba
Jones

Embezzling Scribe?  I always hated math.  Too much a "brain" thing.  I'm a "muscles"
person.  An athlete, you know?  I don't have any use for this dumb "thinking" stuff.
-- Mikela Poole, possibly destined to be embezzled from but still not prepared to
learn to do it herself

Ack!  Get away from me! -- Teri Lark
P.S.  I'm a beggar-phobe.

Cheese, that wasn't much of a beginning for me. -- Tiralea Flete

Tiralea Flete -- Your first match, dear lady, is what we call a "gimme."  Next time,
it will cost you. -- Finagis L'Banc, Financial Scribe

Teri Lark -- The enforcers from my guild will be calling on you. -- Kalzak Steeleye,
Beggar in Good Standing

Mikela Poole -- I would be glad to keep your financial records for you.  You are such
a person as any accountant of my quality hopes for. -- Finagis L'Banc, Financial
Scribe

Ultimate Sin -- And just how, exactly, would you identify that sin, eh?  Being a
"money pit" is not it.  That's just good, dirty fun.  But if you know some really,
really fun sin, let me know! -- Dahlak Krag, Voluntarily Present Orc

Inny Meanie -- It would help if you were to let me win some fights, you know.  Then I
might make enough off the victor's purses to buy my way out of debt. -- Piatri, slave
of Arsanj of Fratsfa

Bubba Jones -- I consider the scorn with which you kicked sand in my face to be
unworthy of you.  Or perhaps you are unworthy of me.  But it was, in any case, a Bad
Thing to Do. -- Shiris Kularsin, Veteran of many Military Actions
P.S.  Especially when I taught you TWO skills.

Just a reminder to all you online type people.  It is much appreciated if you send
your personals in PLAIN TEXT, rather than HTML or formatted text.  HAL, in his
infinite wisdom, doesn't DO formatting, which means having to unsnarl your personal
ads from bunches of extraneous...stuff.  So, if your e-mailer has a plain text
option, let it be your friend. -- Ed.
P.S.  Sometimes it's the formatted text which makes ads go astray.  Not often, but
sometimes.
