                                      SPY REPORT

     Oh, hi.  Its just little 'ol Debby Tonte.  Thought I'd check out LYRATILAN to 
see what's new.  MVP award for ROBIN BANKS?  FUNKY FOLK's proud of her after beating 
GREAT PUMKIN and getting 22 points.  Talk about yer major upsets!  ERHLIE FAY's match 
with BAMBI SLASHER cost her a loss of 17 points!  Don't you think the Duelmaster is 
being unfair?  I think BIG JOY should let PAINLESS be Duelmaster for a while, without 
fighting about it.  Who was the wiseguy that said LYRATILAN's Duelmaster was paying 
for drinks at The Mourngrym Inn and Tavern?  Don't look at me!   
     Look, you guys stick to fighting, all right?  MADTOWN was the most avoided team. 
Is a 114-65-6 record really that scary?  Hhmph!  What kind of warriors are FUNKY 
FOLK?  MADTOWN, an easy team to beat if I ever saw one, can't get them to accept an 
invitation!  Like, is BELTRAN FOSS popular, or what?  He was challenged the most in 
all of LYRATILAN!  He's got a 18-29-2, 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.  Hey you guys, don't you think your 
families would like to hear from you?  Write!  (Or have someone write for you.)  
     I really didn't, you know, study when I was a kid.  Who would've guessed I'd be 
a famous Spyreporter?  I gotta leave.  LYRATILAN is like such a dump, and you guys 
smell too much!  I had a fun time, see you later-- Debby Tonte

Big Joy -- You feel it, eh?  Good!  Write a column about it.  I eagerly await your
sage words on this topic. -- Erhlie Fay
P.S.  No, seriously!  You have the experience, give us the words.  It may encourage
some to keep fighting.

Sam Sung -- And right tunefully, too! -- Xeno Yohl
P.S.  I do hope you have tourney experience, otherwise, my loss would be even more
embarrassing that it is already.
P.P.S.  I'm more of a thinker than a fighter, when you get down to it.  That's
probably why I teach so well.

Jocko -- In the way of good fellowship among gladiators, and supporting each other in
times of critical importance, and stuff like that, I wish you well and away with a
win on your last fight here.  Give 'em big-time heck on the Isle of the Eye. --
Beltran Foss

Vince -- The match started out with a certain numeric symmetry, though it boded ill
for you.  I'm glad you survived it. -- Davia Hannas
P.S.  But WHY did you learn nothing?  I was demonstrating GOOD stuff there.

All -- The bar has re-opened!  The proud Barhoppers teams have returned home.  Please
be sure to buy us a round whenever you see us. -- Apex, mgr. of Barhoppers

     The Dark Knights of the Desolate Empire want to announce the joining of a new
member who cherishes the same ideals, respect and loyalty that we hold dear.
     From this day forward let all know that Blackstorm is now a Dark Knight of the
Desolate Empire Alliance.  With him as our chosen brother, our alliance only becomes
stronger.  Let all his foes become ours, and ours his.  May all our enemies' blood
flow freely and give NO quarter in war.
     This is also a warning to any cowards, bullies, etc....  If you play with fire,
you WILL get burnt!!!

To those involved, no, I have not abandoned your stories.  But I've been letting them
drift, and that has to stop, so I am taking the time to make sure that I know where
they are going, more than just "what happens next" dreamed up on the fly, before
resuming work on them.  No new stories will be started until at least one of the old
ones has concluded, for the same reason:  quantity can't substitute for quality.
Your patience in this matter is appreciated. -- the Scribe
