                                      SPY REPORT

     I was going on vacation, see?  Surf, sun...  But what do those bums say?  "Hit 
the road, Debby Tonte.  LYRATILAN needs a spyreport."  Oh, well.  LEGENDARY MEN like 
really fought hard to move up to 3rd from 6th.  Way to go!  One team deserves special 
mention 'cause they moved up 1 after going 3-0-1.  Keep it up, FUNKY FOLK!  MVP award 
for CLIGG HANGRE?  FUNKY FOLK's proud of him after beating SPIDER-MAN and getting 16 
points.  Talk about yer major upsets!  BIKINI LINE's match with ERHLIE FAY cost her a 
loss of 6 points!  Oh, wow, like the Duelmaster must be the most popular guy in all 
LYRATILAN.  He got the most challenges.  (But what about proposals?) This Duelmaster 
is like something else!  GIGLIE stopped BELTRAN FOSS dead in his tracks!  Who was the 
wiseguy that said LYRATILAN's Duelmaster was paying for drinks at The Mourngrym Inn 
and Tavern?  Don't look at me!   
     I gotta admit I haven't been in "deep con caves" with any spies.  Really, I just 
wing this stuff.  The warriors of FANTASIA ISLE must be getting lonely.  They were 
the most avoided team.  Do you guys know something that I don't?  Hhmph!  What kind 
of warriors are SPONGMONKEYS?  FANTASIA ISLE, an easy team to beat if I ever saw one, 
can't get them to accept an invitation!   
     What does a fighter fight for?  I mean, the crowds don't give a hoot if someone 
gets killed.  Not after four more fights.  Pinch me, I must be dreaming!!!  ROBIN 
BANKS returns from the Dark Arena, maybe a "little upset" at hers FUNKY FOLK 
teammates...  What if they had a fight and nobody showed up?  I'd be out of a job, 
that's what!!!   
     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.  I had 
a fun time, see you later-- Debby Tonte

The Dark Knights sat at the Dark Table with grim faces.  All present knew that there
could be no quarter.  The Forces of Desolation would be unleashed.  There would be no
turning back, no mercy and no hesitation to do what was necessary.  Teeth gritted and
knuckles whitened with fury as the IMPERIAL PROCLAMATION was signed by each Dark
Knight.

CARTEL.

31, 39, 45, 47, 50, 52, 54, 59, 60, 100, and 106.  Stop yapping in the all-arena ads,
pick an arena, issue a challenge, actually win something, and then maybe (and we
stress maybe) you may speak.  You may come to our home arenas (8, 31, and 47) and
confront us, but we suggest you learn to win in your own "home" arena (52) first.

               NEW TEAMS IN THE TEMPORARY TOURNAMENT ARENAS (DM 81/83)

Please note that all new teams created at the Face-to-Face were temporarily placed 
in a temporary Tournament Arena, DM 81 or DM 83.  If you requested that your team be 
placed in a specific arena, it has already transferred to that arena.  Any teams not 
transferred out of DM 81 and DM 83 by September 1st will be deleted.  If you have 
questions about any of your teams, please contact Customer Service. -- RSI
