                                      SPY REPORT

     I was going on vacation, see?  Surf, sun...  But what do those bums say?  "Hit 
the road, Debby Tonte.  ZORPUNT needs a spyreport."  Oh, well.  MVP award for INARI?  
THE ABYSMALS' proud of him after beating BEKKI TCHONES and getting 17 points.  Talk 
about yer big time losers!  MITCHELL PAIGE got smashed by MIRESSEA POOLE, and lost 7 
points!  Don't you think the Duelmaster is being unfair?  I think MANUEL PEREZ should 
let TRAVIS T FLETE be Duelmaster for a while, without fighting about it.  I hear the 
top team insists all their warriors get nine hours sleep.  They want photogenic 
fighters for PR photos.   
     Look, you guys stick to fighting, all right?  Like, is LORENSO POOLE popular, or 
what?  He was challenged the most in all of ZORPUNT!  He's got a 7-3-0, is that good? 
     What does a fighter fight for?  I mean, the crowds don't give a hoot if someone 
gets killed.  Not after four more fights.  D'ya think INARI is feeling guilty for 
killing KRILL CAVALRY's BEKKI TCHONES, a mere girl?  Naah, I doubt it.  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 know how much you like reading this stuff, but I really 
should stop.  I had a fun time, see you later-- Debby Tonte

                                     PERSONAL ADS

Lisa Ann -- Smart and deadly.  A good combination. -- Raven Tarot

All -- Two dead standbys and more to come.  Kill them all! -- Uluru

All -- Let's all kill a standby.  They are useless anyway. -- Ky-Lin

Hey!  We killed three standbys last turn.  Not two as reported in the newsletter. --
Inari

Wendell -- You are a brute! -- Inari

Lorenso -- Overly large!  <sob>  Do you think I'm ugly?  Oh, I'm never eating again!
-- Ky-Lin

Bekki -- Carrion is quite good.  Join me. -- Raven Tarot

Baby Karlie -- I've given the matter serious thought, taking into account your race,
height, and the phase of the moon, and my conclusion is that you're a nasty little
wench.  How do you get that way? -- Lorenso Poole

Wendell -- My, my, aren't you the imposing old tomcat!  Offer me that hand again, and
I'll bite it. -- Bekki Tchones

Manuel Perez -- It amazes me that you can have such a position of honor, one that
seemingly lauds your ABILITY, and yet be such a poor teacher.  You must be acting
totally on instinct. -- Miressea Poole
P.S.  Sort of an idiot savant, eh?

Mitchell Paige -- Ha!  I turned that page, and I enjoyed doing it, too.  Ha! --
Travis T Flete

M. Paige -- Don't mind Travis, he's got a limited imagination when it comes to
crowing insultingly. -- Miressea

Frank Peregory -- I've got an idea you haven't been paying attention to your
instructors, or you'd teach better.  Of course, how I know the signs is because I
haven't been paying attention to MY instructors, either, so I don't teach well.
Takes one to know one. -- Morlin Poole
P.S.  But if you want to know really USEFUL stuff, things you can use outside the
arena, I'm your man.
P.P.S.  Figuratively speaking.  I'm my own man, but I'm willing to share some nifty
skills anent various types of balls and sticks.

"DA2"?  This is insulting. -- Arenamaster Kai

Ash Leela -- Tall women turn me on, especially when they're, you know, contoured.
And you have the contours of a magnificent range of foothills!  I like exploring
foothills....  After dinner, maybe? -- a hopeful Gilbo Shortaxe, Khalhums Dwarf

Uluru and Ky-Lin -- So what IS this nonsense, anyway?  You both kill me, I die twice,
and only get one mention in the Dead Column and one Death Bounty?  If you are in on
this despicable plot, I will have your, um, anything of yours I can get. -- Jessaro
Dra, Mordant Escapee

Inari -- I hope every business you've invested in goes bankrupt. -- Finagis L'Banc,
Financial Scribe

All -- Just that tired old reminder to check your e-mail settings when you send ads
and such.  Please send stuff as plain text rather than as HTML or formatted text.
HAL, being the simple golem it is, doesn't know what to do with anything other than
plain text.  Note, this also means it doesn't know what to do with "smart" or "curly"
quotes, whether single or double, em-dashes (rendered here as two hyphens "--") or
everyone's favourite ellipsis (..., aka three dots). -- A public self-service
announcement from your Ed.
